Study finds no Saddam-al-Qaeda link

Filed under: World News — disciplepete @ 8:44 pm

  From Al Jazeera English:

An exhaustive Pentagon-backed study of more than 600,000 Iraqi documents seized after the 2003 US-led invasion has found no direct link between Saddam Hussein’s government and Osama bin Laden’s al-Qaeda network.

The alleged link was one of the main reasons given by the US for going to war with Iraq and the then defence secretary, Donald Rumsfeld, had said there was “bulletproof” evidence of a connection.

Why did the U.S. invade again? WMD? Didn’t find that. No Al-Qaeda link. Must be to spread democracy…you know, like the shining example of democracy we support in Saudi Arabia.
