You didn’t even bother to read the first paragraph of the linked article.
You best go back and read that Human Events article because it cites a report issued by the Pentagons Institute for Defense Analyses released through the Joint Forces Command.
It was called, “Saddam and Terrorism: Emerging Insights from Captured Iraqi Documents.”
I saw that, but it should have come from the highest level of the civilian (elected) side of the house (e.g. POTUS or SOS), not the military or intellegence side of the house.
