"Hey there Ms. Sheehan, do you want me to list how Al Qaeda had links to Saddam?" [A statement made by me.]

Would you, please? Hard facts, that warrant occupying their country and killing tens of thousands of civilians and thousands of our own, please.

Number one, WE are not killing our soldiers terrorists are. And that goes for the civvies too, many of them are killed by car bombs and suicide bombers. Get it through your head, the United States Military does not utilize car bombs and sui-vests.

I wanted to make it front and center. Not to be lost a few posts back. While I am in no way saying Iraq was behind 9/11, I use this photo to illustrate that Saddam was obviously not too upset about it. I have used information that is all publicly available. But I will give full credit to Richard Minter and his book “Disinformation” that does a great job of pulling together facts that I know, there are many books but this one really would just slap your face Anonymous. These are just a few of many, and obviously there are many more that I will not divulge.

-In 1992, according to Iraqi intelligence documents obtained after the war, bin Laden met with Iraqi intelligence officials in Syria.
Stephen Hayes, “The Connection” Weekly Standard 2004-06-07

-Saddam’s relationship to bin Laden was documented while the arch-terrorist was based in Sudan from 1991 to 1996. Patrick Fitzgerald, an U.S. attorney in the Clinton Justice Department, prepared and indictment of bin laden. “Al Qaeda reached an understanding with the government of Iraq that al Qaeda would not work against that government and that on particular projects, specifically including weapons development, al Qaeda would work cooperatively with the government of Iraq.
9/11 Commission Report

-“In 2000, Saudi Arabia went on kingdom-wide alert after learning that Iraq had agreed to help al Qaeda attack U.S. and British interests on the peninsula.”
Stephen Hayes, “Body of Evidence: A CNN anchor gets Iraq and al Qaeda wrong. But will the network issue a correction?” Weekly Standard 2005-06-30

-Abdul Rahman Yasin was the only member of the al Qaeda cell that detonated the February 26, 1993, World Trade Center bomb to remain at large in the Clinton years. He fled to Iraq. U.S. forces recently discovered a cache of documents in Tikrit, Saddam’s hometown, that show that Iraq gave Yasin both a house and monthly salary. This confirmed American television reports from the Clinton Era.

-Terrorist Organizations Given Funds, Shelter, and/or Training by Saddam Hussein:
Abu Nidal Organization, Ansar al-Islam, Arab Liberation Front, Hamas, Kurdistan Workers Party, Mojahedin-e Khalq, and the Palestine Liberation Front. Combined they have killed 811 (36 US), wounded 2,667 (91 US).

I hope that helps clear up a few things. Keep in mind I am not using things from the 1990’s to go after Clinton, these are events that happened that is all I am saying. There was a connection between al Qaeda and Iraq as much as you don’t want to believe it. Now please you and Ms. Sheehan STFU.
