An exhaustive review of more than 600,000 Iraqi documents that were captured after the 2003 U.S. invasion has found no evidence that Saddam Hussein's regime had any operational links with Osama bin Laden's al Qaida terrorist network.
The Pentagon-sponsored study, scheduled for release later this week, did confirm that Saddam's regime provided some support to other terrorist groups, particularly in the Middle East, U.S. officials told McClatchy. However, his security services were directed primarily against Iraqi exiles, Shiite Muslims, Kurds and others he considered enemies of his regime.
The new study of the Iraqi regime's archives found no documents indicating a "direct operational link" between Hussein's Iraq and al Qaida before the invasion, according to a U.S. official familiar with the report.
See! See! The words are right there in print! To quote: "Saddam... provided... support... to... terrorist groups". Bam! What more do you do you need you anti-war terrorist lovers! The war in Iraq has nothing to do with the Trillions being given to the Military-Industrial-Complex.
Surprise the US Government doesn't want the Pentagon Report showing no link between Saddam and Al Qaeda placed on the web. Where the definitive proof of the Bush Regime's lies could be accessed and referenced forever.
