Besides the fact that Uday's statement is bluster, when did he say it? Oh, yeah, 1992. What year was the 9/11 attack? Oh, yeah, 1991. Apparently the author has a time machine, or thinks someone related to all this does, because grandiose bluster after the attack is evidence of Saddam's involvement prior to the attack.
No, Uday's statement in 1992 occurred a few months before the first WTC bombing. You know, the one carried out by a man with an Iraqi passport: Ramzi Yousef. Yousef was one of the original planners on Operation Bojinka in 1994 which eventually became the 9/11 attacks.
The hints of the attack on 9/11 by the Iraqi newspaper in July 2001 are strange. Did it indicate knowledge of the upcoming attacks? Was this kind of article and its language common or was it an anomaly. If it was anomalous, then it is evidence that Saddam knew the attacks were going to take place. Everyone knows that Saddam had a strong motive for attacking us. If he knew ahead of time then it isn't a big stretch to think that he may have been involved. If you think that Saddam would come out and admit involvement in 9/11, then you are a bigger fool than you appear.
We know the British warned us in August. Again, the government is to blame for ignoring them, right? Of course, just like with Pearl Harbor, they didn't "ignore" them - they wanted it to happen. Then they claim ignorance afterwards.
I'm really surprised that the folks in the white coats let you have the time to type all this in. Thorazine is your friend!
I am surprised Newsmax did not report this before.
Yousef and Nichols crossed paths in the Phillipines. Mohammed was Yousef's uncle. It is interesting to note that Yousef entered the United States on an Iraqi passport and had been known among the New York fundamentalists as "Rashid, the Iraqi". Another name that could be thrown into the mix is Abdul Rahman Yasin, a U.S. citizen who moved to Iraq in the 1960's and returned to the U.S. in 1992. After the 1993 WTC bombing, Yasin fled to Iraq and was given money and housing by Saddam Hussein's regime.
A) Suddenly Saddam is concerned about the lives of innocent people???
One of the biggest reasons people in this world don't like the U.S.A., is for the same reason most Americans cannot look at opulence and say, "Good for that person." Most people say..."What the heck did THEY do to get all that money" instead. Those in the world that don't like us....are simply jealous. And jealousy is quite ugly, no matter where you come from.
He knew in advance, he was harboring terrorists, including Abu Nidal and Zarqawi (who founded Al Qaeda in Iraq before the invasion), and yet the left maintains that there was no justification for the war.
