    FBI Agent, in charge of interogating Saddam Hussein, says saddam hated Bin Ladin, and thought al qaeda was a threat to his own regime.

    Senate Bipartisan Report on Iraq Intelligence, September 2006 ?


    So whats your point....?
    ===============================================

    Page 128 of 9/11 Commission Report
    First Indictment of OBL (1998)
    The original sealed document had added that AQ had reached an understanding with the government of Iraq etc....
    ...............1998...............
    ----------------------------
    Now If you wanted to explain to us why in 1998, the Clinton Admin. thought it reasonable to include in this first indictment of OBL, the charge....
    that AQ had reached an understanding with the government of Iraq ...


    I would be mildly interested.....


    And point out that in a later indictment this issue was dropped because of lack of proof

    I would again be mildly interested....,

    or if you were pointing out that this 1998 indictment was the first connection made, and suspections voiced about cooperation between AQ and Iraq

    I would again be mildly interested....

    But really....WHAT IS your point..????????

    It's one of the main reasons you told us we had to go to war. And you were wrong.

    It's distasteful to realise an administration conned a nation into going to war for no good reason. It's even more distasteful to realise that people on all sides died because of it. No good reason and people died.

    When future historians write this up they won't believe what happened.

    I don't think subtlety is a mark of the Bush Administration. Ham-fistedness yes, subtlety, no. I suspect they would be confused from just watching one of the Bourne films.

    Wow. We went to war because Alucard said so? I'm impressed.

    Just how many "main" reasons are there? That Saddam had ties to al Qaeda was "a" reason. Having ties and trust, respect, mutual goals, etc are not mutually inclusive.

    Anyone with half a brain could see that al Qaeda and Saddam Hussein's ideologies opposed one another, and that Saddam would consider militant, extremist Islamics a threat to his regime.

    Might be why he kept them pinned in the No Fly Zones, huh?:eusa_eh:
