These captures and kills demonstrate the ideological divide between secular Baathists and Islamic extremists was not so distant
Many analysts of the insurgency in Iraq are currently debating its makeup and strength, among other things. Regardless of what percentage is currently claiming allegiance to what ideology or group, the past few years of reporting have slowly revealed that at least one deadly aspect of the insurgency in Iraq has been the cooperation of some members of Saddam Hussein's regime (though not all) and Islamic militants, particularly al Qaeda in Iraq.
Below is a list, compiled from a number of media reports over the past few years, of the names and backgrounds of some of those found to have supported or worked for the former Baath Party of Saddam Hussein's Iraq and also al Qaeda. Parts of this list were cited by World Net Daily in a story about postwar links between members of Saddam Hussein's regime and al Qaeda elements in Iraq.

Shocked! SHOCKED, I TELL YA!.....
GRRRREAT post! Thanks for the ping.
No prob. This is the list I’ve been working on for the past few years. Last few days have seen a few more people to add though.
But, the bumperstickers say this is all made up!
The Surge is Working and terrorist cowards are being Racked and Stacked
Pray for W and Our Troops
Thanks for the ping. Will have to bookmark it for later reading.
Good find. There were also SAUDI hijackers who just so happened to safely land the plane in Iraq and were given “safe haven” by Saddam in 2002 after hijacking a passenger plane and sending all the citizens back to their home countries.

Saddam offerred aslymum to Bin Laden
ALSO see the video of ABC News announcing the same case :
APRIL 2003 : the US forces arrested the AQ-Saddam link Faruq Hijazi
Kucinich, aka, The Evil Elf, says it is. So it must be true.
Here is why I think the US establishment - i.e. not Bush and Cheney themselves, but the people of the Beltway - are hiding Saddam-AQ extensive ties :
2 VIDEOS - MUST SEE
Attention to post 17
good.....now shoot em
Are you the owner of regime of terror.com ?
I found your videos on youtube, and your website is GREAT.
I’m making my own investigation on the subject. I have written about 100 articles on the subject so far, from different sources (French, US, Iraqis...) and I have gathered all my stuff on my blog.
It is in french but translation is available on the upper right of the blog:
ps : DID you know that the Saddam’s chief of protocol confirmed Saddam had ties with Al-Qaeda, several camps built for terrorists and trained these terroriste to hijack the same plane as those who stroke the WTC ?
Is it supposed to be an advice to see the videos or a warning to not see them ?
I want to see the videos. I’m going to watch them as soon as I can.
check your PM.
Ok it was an advice so...
I thought there was a misunderstanding and you believed I was among the “inside job” crowd...
Which is ABSOLUTELY not the case. You can see on my blog :
Or in a little video I made to support the US
It will be even more powerful if we can find out if these ex-Saddam regime officers that you mentioned were working or had contacts with Al Qaeda during Saddam rule. I am sure that some of them already did as the Iraqi documents reveal the meeting of Saddam intelligence with Bin Laden in 1995, and an Al Qaeda document talks about of Ayman Al Zawahiri to Iraq in 1999.
Actually the US army has the guy you need in custody :
Faruq Hijazi, who travelled several times to Afghanistan to meet Bin Laden, and who was captured in April 2003.
The training of the foreign Arab terrorists called by Saddam regime "Al Feedayeen Al Arab" (Arab Feedayeens) went way after 1993 and all the way till the fall of Saddam as this documents shows. In fact in April 2003 a document shows that Saddam gave an order to treat the Arab Feedayeens (terrorists) like Iraqi Special Forces and give them the same wages and benefits.

Thanks for the link.
Revisit/re-BUMP! Thanks to all.
When the so-called secularist Saddam Hussein found himself in trouble after the invasion of Kuwait in 1990 he embraced the Islamists and changed the Iraqi flag to include the words “God is Great”. The secular Baathists went along (the Baath of Michel Aflaq had been an attenuated force for years). Prior to the invasion of Iraq in 2003 Saddam made it a point to embrace the Islamists, and again the so-called Baath went along. They are opportunists, and with Saddam dead they see their return to power only possible by an alliance with foreign Islamists (al-Qaeda) who are providing much of the determined fighters in the war for Iraq. The information should shock no one.
Here’s another Saddam - Al Qadda connection...
From Wall Street Journal
PROBE OF ISLAMIC TIES TO OKC MURRAH BUILDING OBSTRUCTED BY FEDS *PIC*
Oklahoma City Bombing suspects had help from Al Queda!!!
GREAT Jveritas ! THANX
Joseph. I have DIA and CIA Freedom of Information requests on these guys interrogation logs. For those alive at least. Not expecting much but it would be nice.
LINK toward the Amazon page of the book :
Be nice to get an English version of it.
ping for future referance
This will be great if you get the interrogation logs about these terrorists.
If you guys think this is important maybe you can call the following members of the House intelligence committee and ask them to use their positions on that committee to look into this.
Then we might really get somewhere.
Heather Wilson 202-225-6316
Robin Hayes (202) 225-3715
Terry Everett (202) 225-2901
Peter Hoekstra (202) 225-4401
Mac Thornberry (202) 225-3706
Todd Tiahrt 202.225.6216
John McHugh (202) 225-4611
I think it is important and I will do my part of calling.
Thanks. I just called them as well.
Thanks Calpernia for the ping.
And of course there was NEVER, I repeat, NEVER any contact between Saddam and Al Qaeda.............NEVER!!!!
Thanks, leads to a lot of good info.........
Liberals will still deny it to the end.
