In the Pentagon/FMSO document http://18.104.22.168/released/03-20-06/ISGZ-2004-009247.pdf there is a clear report about the relation between Iraq and Bin Laden that dated back to 1995. This document contains a 9 page report from the Iraqi Intelligence Apparatus and it is titled The Saudi Opposition and Achieving the Relation and Contact With Them. In the report they talk about there meeting with Osama Bin Laden and that Bin Laden in 1995 and how to establish relations with him. In the meeting Bin Laden asked the Iraqis for joint operations with them against the Foreign forces (US military) in the land of Hijaz (Saudia or Saudi Arabia).
I did a partial translation of the report that is related to Osama Bin Laden

2. The Commission of Reform and Advise
Lead by the Saudi Osama Bin Laden who belongs to a wealthy Saudi family with her roots go back to Hadramoot and connected strongly with the ruling family in Saudi Arabia, and he is one of the leaders of the Arab Afghan who volunteered for Jihad in Afghanistan, and after the expulsion of the Soviets he moved to stay in Sudan in the year 1992 after the arrival of the Islamists to power in Sudan.
And because of his stands against the Saudi Royal family because of the foreign presence inside it, the Saudi authorities made a decision to withdraw his Saudi citizenship, and we moved toward The Comission from our side and through the following:
Translation of page 5

During the visit of the Sudanese Dr. Abrahim Al Sanoosi to the country and his meeting with Mr. Uday Saddam Hussein on 13/12/1994 and with the presence of the respectful Sir the Director of the Apparatus he indicated that the opposition person Osama Bin Laden who is staying in Sudan and who was cautious and fears that he will be accused by his opponents that he became an agent for Iraq, is ready to meet with him in Sudan (The results of the meeting were written to the Honorable Presidency according to our letter 872 on 17/12/1994).

In the four years since the inspectors left, intelligence reports show that Saddam Hussein has worked to rebuild his chemical and biological weapons stock, his missile delivery capability, and his nuclear program. He has also given aid, comfort, and sanctuary to terrorists, including Al Qaeda members, though there is apparently no evidence of his involvement in the terrible events of September 11, 2001. -Hillary Clinton Oct 2002
I'm sickened that our Republican congresscritters don't have a bit of guts. This is really disgusting to me.
How about we organize a freep of Sen. Roberts - send him this translation?
WOW.. good catch. However the democrats will tell that they said this because they were mind controlled by the evil Bush.
Good Lord, how many times does it have to be reported that Iraqi intelligence had numerous encounters with Bin Laden during his stay in Khartoum beginning with the Popular Arab and Islamic Conference held in Khartoum in April 1991. Other meetings were held in 1993 (when Iraq's help was urged for the activity in Somalia) and again in 1995.
OK, I'm game. I'm also going to send it to Chambliss and Isakson, my Senators.
And yes, I am sickened too. Why isn't any of them calling the dems on the threat to ABC/Disney FROM DEMOCRATIC SENATORS!!!!! for God's sake? WHat is going on???
jveritas, you deserve a Big, Big Bump for re-posting this.
Apparently more than as many times as it has been reported.
Too bad the MSM won't report this.
I don't know, unless it's those darned FBI files. I haven't been this discouraged in years.
Thanks again jveritas. It is clear we have Senators that ignore the facts of Iraqi involvement with Al Qaida. Senators and media should be contacted.

"There is stil relation with him through the Sudanese side and we work in the present moment to activate this relation with him through a new channel in light of the current place where he stays."
I think that ABC news reported this document 2 days after it was first published here on FR. But of course it was quickly dismissed as irrelevant by the liberal media. Short of a videotape of Saddam sitting with Bin Laden and talking about attacking the US, nothing else in the eyes of liberals and their media will prove a connection between Saddam and Bin Laden.
I have a leftist boss.
