We have evidence Iraq knew and approved of the Sept. 11 targets," he said.

It relies in part on a newspaper article published July 21, 2001, in Al Nasiriyah, 185 miles southwest of Baghdad. The law firm provided The Associated Press with a copy of the article written in Arabic and an English translation.

According to the lawsuit, a columnist writing under the byline Naeem Abd Muhalhal described bin Laden thinking "seriously, with the seriousness of the Bedouin of the desert, about the way he will try to bomb the Pentagon after he destroys the White House."

Naeem Abd Muhalhal wrote in Al Nasiriyah newspaper on 21 July 2001 - just six weeks before the attacks - that Bin Laden would "strike America on the arm that is already hurting", apparently referring to the 1993 bombing of the WTC.

He also said that Bin Laden would "curse Frank Sinatra every time he hears his songs", apparently a reference to the song New York, New York.

Kabooooom!

Clarke could have prevented 911 if he had been paying attention to Iraq instead of trying to track Bin Laden!

Ping to this post. Recall that the dems ONLY strategy in this election is to argue that Iraq was unnecessary.

Good point. PerhapsClarke has been on the offensive against Bush, hoping to distract the public from realizing this.
