al Qaeda figurehead working in league with holdover Saddamists

The war in Iraq is no longer a good political football for Democrats (they opposed it in 2002, 2003, 2004, 2005, 2006, 2007, 2008, and in 2009 got power/responsibility so they support it now). Apparently that makes it ok for even the New York Times to admit that YES, Saddam's regime (albeit in exile) is working directly, cooperationally, operationally with Al Queda groups-groups that even Democrats admit were in Iraq before the invasion.

"In an interview with the British Broadcasting Corporation on Monday, Mr. Maliki said all of the recent attacks had resulted from coordination between Qaeda militants and elements of Mr. Hussein’s Baathists.

They agreed that Al Qaeda would carry out the suicide attacks, while the Baathists would do the remote-control bombs,” he said."

Of course, other Iraqi PMs have said this as well.

We saw very clearly in Viet Nam what the left does to “end” a war and which side they play for. I wonder how many deaths they will be responsible for THIS time.

Thanks Maliki. You just ripped right through the left's battle cry that AQ and Saddam are not connected, therefore we should not be in Iraq. Not that they'll listen of course.
