Just Another Measly Bombshell Report
Posted on Sep 8, 2006
A Senate report on prewar intelligence has concluded that there was no evidence Saddam had ties with Al Qaeda. This is yet another confirmation of what we all, sadly, already know—not only about the realities of Mideast tyrants, but about the realities of liars in the Bush administration. Also, there are new tidbits inside.
There’s no evidence Saddam Hussein had ties with al-Qaida, according to a Senate report on prewar intelligence that Democrats say undercuts President Bush’s justification for invading Iraq.
Bush administration officials have insisted on a link between the Iraqi regime and terror leader Abu Musab al-Zarqawi. Intelligence agencies, however, concluded there was none.
Republicans countered that there was little new in the report and Democrats were trying to score election-year points with it.
The declassified document released Friday by the intelligence committee also explores the role that inaccurate information supplied by the anti-Saddam exile group the Iraqi National Congress had in the march to war.
