    <center><h1><a href=http://story.news.yahoo.com/news?tmpl=story&cid=578&u=/nm/20040616/pl_nm/security_commission_dc_7>Panel Says No Signs Iraq Aided Qaeda Plots on US</a></h1></center>


    <blockquote>By Deborah Charles

    WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Contrary to the Bush administration's prewar rhetoric, investigators have found no evidence Iraq (news - web sites) aided al Qaeda attempts to strike the United States, a commission probing the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks said on Wednesday.</blockquote>

    ...But I told ya so. The last tenuous shreds of credibilty possessed by the administration have just vanished like the morning mist before the rising sun.

    Bush lied...Thousands died, and for no good reason.

    depends on one's definition of "aide". If they (Iraq) allowed AQ to hide out in Iraq, they aided. That has been proven.

    Furthermore, after 9-11 the proclomation was not "those that give direct quid pro quo aide ". It was "those that harbour, give refuge, etc."

    DOH!

    freeandfun, good point. Also overlooked by the liberals is that we are fighting a war on TERRORISM, not a war on al-Qaeda, although they are the primary enemy. Iraq is defintely guilty of conspiring with terrorists, and there are already proven connections between Saddam and al-Qaeda, even if Saddam didn't sit on the 9/11 Planning Committee.

    Funny, no ones argued that Iraq was directly responsible for 9/11 so who cares if your straw man is accurate.

    The fact is Iraq did have links to terrorism. We have severed those links.
