Senate Report: Saddam Government "Met" with al Qaeda!
senate intelligence committee ^ | Sep. 2 2006 | Joseph Gestetner

Posted on 09/11/2006 12:18:14 PM PDT by screw boll

I read the senate intelligence committee report. Here are some excerpts:

"The [FBI] summery said that when told there was clear evidence that the Iraqi government has previously met with Bin Ladin, Saddam responded "yes." Saddam than specified that Iraq did not cooperate with Bin Laden." (Page 67 Second paragraphs).


TOPICS: Foreign Affairs
KEYWORDS: alqaedaandiraq; iraq
Most conclusion of the committee are based on FBI interviews of former Iraqi government officials. Since when are these Iraqis reliable sources?

March 23, 2004. CNN Interview
http://freerepublic.com/focus/news/1104121/posts

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”.

It looks like the 9/11 Commission got an important detail wrong. Shakir probably DID work the Iraqi Fedayeen and he had documents on him when arrested that linked him to the 1993 WTC bombing. And he drove the 9/11 hijackers to a planning meeting.

Holy Cow Peach, You sure did your homework! WTG!

On Friday, I was in Manhattan and a business associate came up to me with a smirk, stating that" It's now official! Saddam had no AQ links!" My response was "Well then, you must be a Democrat"! Then I proceded to tell him what I have learned.

I was so ticked off and wanted "back up" that I spent this past Saturday morning searching for Byron York, Stephen Hayes & Deroy Murdock articles.

I would say that immediate right after 9/11 Saddam was feeling more and more desperate and really didn't care about linking up with al-Qaeda to some degree. I do believe that whatever their relationship or collusion, Saddam like a good dictator wasn't going to compromise his authority and let al-Q call any shots in Iraq. Saddam didn't share A.Q's relgious vision, only their hatred for Israel & America.

Excellent list! We of course are in Iraq because of the Iraqi sponsored terrorism of the 1995 OKC bombing. Jayna Davis clearly showed that Iraq was involved and that the attacks would continue witht the state sponsored terrorism during the Clinton administration.

Only probably is that the majority of Americans and ALL the so called journalists don't believe they could get it all so wrong.

Clinton said no raghead terrorists are going to make me go to war when the soccer moms are so happy, Wall Street was setting records, and approval ratings took off when he lied. The only problem is that 9/11 came along and exposed Clinton's lies of no terrorism. But you simply can't put it all together as the whole party could come crashing down in Washington for BOTH PARTIES.

Bush is lying too, it's for the "good" of the country. Once you believe that Iraq was sponsoring terrorism that killed hundreds of Americans in the 90's, much of the unexplainable makes sense. For example, explain WHY Sandy Berger would stuff TOP SECRET documents into his underwear while preparing for the 9/11 hearings. And don't forget Jamie Gorelick on the 9/11 Commission. Why do hundreds of people see a missile hit TWA 800 and yet the FAA report on a center fuel tank explosion is simply impossible?

That's the real reasons the Iraq-Terrorism link can't be made. It's too obvious afer that link is made.

This political witch hunt committee of the Senate was formed on the Dim mantra that the administration had been politically selective in what did and did not constitute intelligence that should be believed.

Then it produced a report to agree with that mantra by being politically selective in what they did and not believe constituted intelligence that should be believed.

The Marxist historians could not have been more proud.

Read Stephen Hayes book: The Connection: How al Qaeda's Cooperation with Saddam Hussein Has Endangered America. Hayes covered known intelligence BEFORE we started transcribing and translating all of the documents we seized in Iraq after 2003. Its a joke when Dems say that there was no connection. Its only surpassed by the worst joke they tell when they claim that Bush blamed Saddam for 9/11.

Peach:

The story is not that OKC is a lie, the story is that Clinton personally ordered that the terrorist story be killed. Jamie Gorelick was the principal lieutenant in that battle. Clinton's battle was with the American press and truth. The press across the board showed that they are no match for the deceit of the Federal Government. Idiots like Rush Limbaugh think they explain it all, but they can't even question the obvious, much less figure out the obscure.

The key in every one of these lies, what our language now terms "conspiracy theories" is that the Federal Investigations and the press neuter the witnesses. "They" get away with it because we let them. And every one of these Conspiracy events goes back directly to the President of the United States. The first one in my lifetime was LBJ killing JFK, but Clinton took it to a new level which has led to thousands in NYC dying along with thousands of young Americans as soldiers doing now what Clinton should have ordered in 1995.
