Skip to comments.Senate: Saddam believed Al-Qaida was a threat, not ally
Posted on 09/09/2006 8:07:18 AM PDT by rubeng
WASHINGTON (AP) - Saddam Hussein rejected overtures from al-Qaida and believed Islamic extremists were a threat to his regime, a reverse portrait of an Iraq allied with Osama bin Laden painted by the Bush White House, a Senate panel has found.
The administration's version was based in part on intelligence that White House officials knew was flawed, according to Democrats on the Senate Intelligence Committee, citing newly declassified documents released by the panel.
The report, released Friday, discloses for the first time an October 2005 CIA assessment that prior to the war Saddam's government "did not have a relationship, harbor or turn a blind eye toward" al-Qaida operative Abu Musab al-Zarqawi or his associates.
As recently as an Aug. 21 news conference, President Bush said people should "imagine a world in which you had Saddam Hussein" with the capacity to make weapons of mass destruction and "who had relations with Zarqawi." ...

Pissant: Senators are lying idiots.
43% of Americans believe Saddam was involved with the planning of 9/11. Certainly 129 million Americans can't be wrong.
The RATS are all over this one. Not sure who was on the Senate panel but I'm sure it was heavily leaning left.
"according to Democrats on the Senate Intelligence "
If these Democrat Senators spent HALF this time trying to help us WIN we would be a LOT safer.
gee, why weren't we treated to every other paragraph being a rejection, dismissal, or a general poo-pooing by various Republicans like when the storyline goes the other direction.
one little out-of-context, snipped snippet by Roberts in rebuttal
steveegg: crAP, DemonRATs announce joint propaganda alliance
That started 40 years ago.
We believed that Stalin was a threat. We also sent him millions of tons of war equipment. Is called, "enemy of my enemy". These senators are morons.
They are traitors to the very country that put real freedom on the map, all in the relentless pursuit of wealth and power.
The sad part is that there is no effective counter-balance to this pernicious fiction because the Repubs are scared into paralysis, afraid of losing what slight control they still maintain.
I've always thought Savage was a self-promoting blow-hard playing on people's base emotions but I have come to realize that for all his faults he is spot-on:
The real enemy is within.
Oh yeah, and that whole liberalism is a mentl desease schtick, too...
Yes they can.
A popular mistake is still a mistake.
Too bad the Republicans didn't control the Senate or at least speak up.
Pray for W and Our Troops
Well, the fact is that Roosevelt did not think Stalin as a threat, that was the problem!
However, you point is valid.
Hilter and Stalin shocked the world when they agreed to a non-agression pact!
And both knew that they would eventually go to war with each other.
Stalin was counting on the West giving Hilter a harder time!
Never count on the French!
Never post before the second cup of coffee!
LOL, so AQ just strolled into Iraq upon our entry, never having been there before knew their way around, knew where to hide, who would hide them, with tons of weapons, and knew where all weapons were hidden, knew where all Saddam's goons were located, WITHOUT EVER HAVING BEEN THERE BEFORE AND WITH NO PLANNING??
Sure Mr. Senator.
Now go get a real job.
If we lose the war against Islamofascism, the DemocRATS need to stand up and take all responsibility for our failure. It was the DemocRATS who sabotaged all of America's efforts.
Perhaps the lying scum Democrat Senators along with their RINO surrender moneky allies Snow and Hagel can explain why they supressed this document?
Document: Iraqi Intelligence met with Bin Laden in 1995 (Re-Post For A Reminder)

The Translation below was posted on FR on March 21 2006 but in the light of the Senate intelligence report that said no connection between Saddam and Al Qaeda it worth publish it again, of course if the Admin Moderator allows it.
Document: Iraqi Intelligence met with Bin Laden in 1995 (Translation)
Pentagon/FMSO website about Iraq Pre-War Documents ^ | March 21 2006 | jveritas
Posted on 03/21/2006 3:18:32 PM PST by jveritas
In the Pentagon/FMSO document http://126.96.36.199/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
(Translation of Part of Page 1)
When a news article like this is published, it should be mandatory that the members of the oxymoronically-named "Senate Intelligence Committee" should also be named.
In addition to the usual suspects: Dimocrats Carl Levin, Diannes Feinswein, Babs Mikulski, and Russell "No you can't speak!" Feingold;
this committee is infested with GOP fellow-travelers Olympia Snowe, Chuck Hagel, and Mike Dewine.
With that bit of insight, what are the odds of this report being worth the electrons it's printed on?
Yes, your comparison the the Nazi-Commie non-aggression pact is a better example.
Perhaps the lying Democrat scum, after explaining why they rehashed a two year old report where they only talked to a hand full of witnesses that toted the Democrats Neo Isolationists propaganda lies, might explain why they ignored this evidence? Thanks Freeper Peach for the List.

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.

That is a terrific set of links! Thanks for posting that!
Saddam did have ties to Al Qaeda. As the years pass and we go through the captured documents a clear picture will emerge. History will not hide this fact, no matter how deep you bury your head in the sand. With you intentionally willing to dismiss the FACTS THAT ARE EMERGING, you will be seen as a poster here WITH NO HONEST INTEGRITY. Have another drink from the DNC's Kool-aid.
As Rush said yesterday....SO WHAT!!
I can't tolerate Savage, though he is dead nuts on about the media. But the counterbalance to the dem-MSM evil alliance is Talk Radio (yes, Savage included), the blogosphere, FR, a few publications such as the Washington Times, Brit Hume (certainly not Fox as a whole), and most importantly - the intelligence of the American people.
And truth be told, we are turning the tide. The newspapers are losing readers, the evening news audience has eroded, the democrat talking points splashed across the headlines are being challenged at every turn.
Look at how LGF and some Freepers & bloggers have exposed the propagandist pictures. How we got Dan Rather canned. CNN may like to trumpet Bush's supposed 40% approval rating, but there is a reason they do not run polls very often on the MSM's approval ratings. Or the fact that in their polls, the dems fare worse than the GOP.
We gotta keep pushing and snuff the life out of this pestilence, and I think we have a good shot at doing just that.
"The administration's version was based in part on intelligence that White House officials knew was flawed, according to Democrats on the Senate Intelligence Committee"
There's a reliable source for you.
Your post #24 leaves me breathless (and most grateful)
Awesome job. Well done and thanks for posting the links for those that may want to educate themselves to the facts, that most of us here already know.
Yes, it's just a vague, amorphous "Senate Panel" (deep voice, echoes)... in other words, a few Democrats, in collusion with George Tenet who, now that Saddam is safely deposed, is suddenly convinced that Saddam was no threat. Notice how he kept his mouth shut till it was too late to do anything... and for some reason, none of them want to try to impeach Bush... man, these people have no conscience whatsoever.
i think iit is a major faux pas to use Senate and Intelligence in the same sentence.
If I may add - Senate, intelligence, democrats in the same sentence.
I suspect the truth will not be known for many years, if ever.
But consider the larger picture.
We wanted to topple Saddam whether or not his regime could be shown to possess or was attempting to build WMD and whether or not it could be shown to be strongly connected to Al Queda. This was so because we felt Saddam was a bad, bad man and our enemy, because we felt we had to send a strong message to the Arab and Muslim worlds on the limits of our tolerance, because we needed to strengthen our military position in the center of the world's greatest oil-producing region, because our policies of sanctions and inspections were becoming increasingly inefective and something stronger was needed.
We had to act quickly while sympathy for 911 was strong and allowed us political leverage. It would not surprise me to learn that the Administration cherry-picked or slanted intelligence...since doing so served the national interest. Intelligence is not all that reliable in any case.

Handwritten letter dated Feb. 19, 1998 linking bin Laden and Saddam Hussein
discussing arrival of a secret envoy sent by bin Laden to Iraq.
The signature beneath the letter is a codename, "MDA" - the Mukhabarat.
This report has been disgustingly misreported on.
The report is NOT supposed to be an evaluation of all postwar findings on Saddam's possible links to al Qaeda. It is a postwar comparison of what was found ONLY ON THE SPECIFIC PREWAR CIA ASSESSMENTS and see what specific prewar assessments by the CIA were right and what were wrong.
This doesn't take into account any issues that weren't specificically cited in the 2004 Senate report and certainly doesn't address all of the documents recovered post-invasion that still haven't all been examined.
If you read this report it is basically FBI/DIA/CIA excerpts of interviews with Saddam and his minions on whether or not they admitted working with al Qaeda and then slapping an official U.S. Senate stamp on their comments.
It was cherry picked so far and far from conclusive. There are only a few members of al Qaeda and Saddam's regime who's testimony is only partially cited and the public deserves far better than this pile of manure.
The British stand by their intelligence reports on Niger. Unlike our own CIA that that had a rogue group trying to undermine this POTUS at a time of war with forged documents. Forged documents that had the names and dates wrong, according to the proven LIAR Joe Wilson, yet how could he have known this because the alleged forged documents were not in our possession at the time? Heh Liberal Larry, they are missing you at the institute of higher learing for donks, Kos land, where the facts don't matter, we will make our own up as we go along.
Thanks, though, for the encouraging reminder of the advances made through the new media! I think it will be a good week-end, after all...
And they're just getting around to announcing it now.
"The RATS are all over this one. Not sure who was on the Senate panel but I'm sure it was heavily leaning left."
You gotta love Clinton. First get it out that 9/11 and Iraq are not related. Then get the movie edited or canned.
Now all you have is BLAME BUSH!
You're 100% correct. I read the pertinent sections of the report yesterday and was absolutely shocked at how few people were relied on to gather this information.
There was no thinking outside the box and little if any reliance on foreign sources.
And I should have mentioned - Dick Cheney has a chance tomorrow to set a few things straight on Meet the Press tomorrow. We'll see if he steps up to the plate or gives it a pass.
So far, I've been disappointed with the administration's willingness to let the reports from Congress stand as the final arbiter of truth.
ummmm....why did you send me the list?
