M.E.: Recently released FBI files show that Saddam Hussein reportedly admitted only one or two meetings between his regime and al-Qaeda and that it was al-Qaeda who reached out to him and he rebuffed them (as opposed to reports of al-Qaeda rebuffing Iraq and there being more than just a few meetings). Is it your understanding that it was al-Qaeda pursuing the relationship and Iraq denied them or is there more to the story?
P.P.: Thats pretty much my sense. I dont think theres anything more to the story.
Only problem is the documents captured during the Liberation prove this claim to be factually incorrect so either the source has NO clue what he is talking about or he is another fraud posting as knowing more about the CIA then he actually does. Members of Saddam's Intellegence agency traveled to meet with Al Qeda respresenatives a number of times. That documented fact. So the whole contention here is either in error or and out and out lie.
In either case that level of factual error in the 1st 2 paragraphs indicates that this source is either wholly ignorant of the facts on Iraq or out and out lying.
