FLASHBACK: Clinton first linked al Qaeda to Saddam
Washington Times ^ | June 25, 2004 | Rowan Scarborough

Posted on 09/08/2006 8:11:33 PM PDT by FairOpinion

The Clinton administration talked about firm evidence linking Saddam Hussein's regime to Osama bin Laden's al Qaeda network years before President Bush made the same statements.

In fact, during President Clinton's eight years in office, there were at least two official pronouncements of an alarming alliance between Baghdad and al Qaeda. One came from William S. Cohen, Mr. Clinton's defense secretary. He cited an al Qaeda-Baghdad link to justify the bombing of a pharmaceutical plant in Sudan.

The other pronouncement is contained in a Justice Department indictment on Nov. 4, 1998, charging bin Laden with murder in the bombings of two U.S. embassies in Africa.

The indictment disclosed a close relationship between al Qaeda and Saddam's regime, which included specialists on chemical weapons and all types of bombs, including truck bombs, a favorite weapon of terrorists.

How could the Republicans participate in the production of the factually false report that claims there was no connection between Al Qaeda and Iraq?!

GOP or Dem, the cards dealt are the same. As all card players know, there is only so much you can do with any given hand of cards.

That is why I am confident that the Dems, should they wake up and be in power after the election, will continue the same basic policies of the current Congress. And, I'm betting that John F-ing Kerry would still have us in the sandbox (but probably playing the hand poorly).

This is getting old. Who cares if there was a link between Al-Qaeda and Iraq? It's irrelevant.

I have a better question.

Why the hell does any of this matter?? The War on Terrorism is EVERYWHERE the terrorists are and they ARE IN IRAQ!

I was puzzled by that, too. But, as I read the report it seems like more obfuscatory language: translated, I think it says that "pre-war" intelligence showed no "proven" al-qaeda/Iraq link.

The dems then took that and spun it to say, "No Iraq/Al Qaeda links."

They're liars so I expect that from them.

Well, it matters I guess to some because they love to say it. But we should know why. I personally believe with all of my being that there is a definite connection, and I know they know it as well. But that doesn't matter in the long run, as we need to be in Iraq anyway, and Iran, and Syria, et al.

Less than two months before 9/11/01, the state-controlled Iraqi newspaper “Al-Nasiriya” carried a column headlined, “American, an Obsession called Osama Bin Ladin.” (July 21, 2001)

In the piece, Baath Party writer Naeem Abd Muhalhal predicted that bin Laden would attack the US “with the seriousness of the Bedouin of the desert about the way he will try to bomb the Pentagon after he destroys the White House.”

The same state-approved column also insisted that bin Laden “will strike America on the arm that is already hurting,” and that the US “will curse the memory of Frank Sinatra every time he hears his songs” – an apparent reference to the Sinatra classic, “New York, New York”.

Holding the aces that we do, it would be difficult to play our hand much worse.

The first bunch of SOBs out partying around the corpse of an American soldier should have been machine gunned into dog food from a BUFF or a flight of Cobras, just to let them know where we're coming from. We would have far fewer problems today if that were done then.

I am the political one in the family..and my husband never listens to talk radio...but, tonight, he took the baby home in my car...and it was on the station that carries Mark Levin.

Well..Mark was going OFF on the Dems that put forth their views of the Senate Intelligence report on 9/11...and how Rockefeller and Levin went on and on about how there never was any link between Saddam and al-queds...

THEN, he read that infamous secret memo of Rockefellers where he was planning over 2 years ago...to do exactly what they did today...no matter WHAT the actual findings of an investigation shows...they planned on putting their own out blaming Bush Administration.

Well...he came home just all upset about that memo..and all fired up after listening to Mark..he said he had NO IDEA the dems were that deceitful...I told him he didn't know the half of it...lOL

NOW, he wants me to get a copy of that memo and print it out so he can take it to his lib friends at work!

...I am confident that the Dems, should they wake up and be in power after the election, will continue the same basic policies of the current Congress.

That's a kind generous and hopeful sentiment--to think the best of one's fellow man will rise up the reality of the moment and pursue the good instead of the bad. Given the abysmal record of the Democrats on matters of national security in the years leading up to and since 9-11, however, it strikes me as an utterly misplaced and naive hope.

It's not a hope. It's reality. As much as the libs rant and rave, they don't have the power to overcome reality. Reality is a sobring thing, you know. It's one thing to make outragous statements when you've got no power, but yet another to actually run things when you are in power.

The votes undermining the war on terror, the funding of the troops, the Patriot Act, etc. speak for themselves to the sobering reality of the Democrats as a party governing during a time of grave danger to our country.

Your viewpoint, I respectfully offer, ignores reality and is dangerously naive and quixotic.

It's so very funny and a little sad when I read posts at DU and these guys can't understand why, with so much evidence that Bush lied, he hasn't been impeached yet.

They have no clue who the real liars are.

SALMAN PAK


http://www.globalsecurity.org/wmd/world/iraq/salman_pak.htm


Iraq told UN inspectors that Salman Pak was an anti-terror training camp for Iraqi special forces. However, two defectors from Iraqi intelligence stated that they had worked for several years at the secret Iraqi government camp, which had trained Islamic terrorists in rotations of five or six months since 1995. Training activities including simulated hijackings carried out in an airplane fuselage [said to be a Boeing 707] at the camp. The camp is divided into distinct sections. On one side of the camp young, Iraqis who were members of Fedayeen Saddam are trained in espionage, assassination techniques and sabotage. The Islamic militants trained on the other side of the camp, in an area separated by a small lake, trees and barbed wire. The militants reportedly spent time training, usually in groups of five or six, around the fuselage of the airplane. There were rarely more than 40 or 50 Islamic radicals in the camp at one time.

Thank you, Nord. Now if we could just figure out why the Republicans remain silent on this issue. Spineless jellyfish that they are.
