    I guess he's off the hook? But what happened to those ABC news sources that said he was behind the attack? and what about the messages that went along with the attacks that tried to link the attacks to Islamic radicals?

    I don't recall Saddam being blamed for the anthrax attacks.

    Now now, don't ask him for proof. As I recall it was pretty much accepted to be something from THIS Country. You may find a few of the first reports claiming they thought it might be from Saddam, but you aren't going to find the Government making that claim, except as something to investigate.

    Relying on your selective memory is about as creditable as trusting George Bush to tell the truth.

    I'll post a bunch of things:

    And why would he send Anthrax to Tom Daschle & Patrick Leahy? Those guys were preventing the Patriot Act from passing. That was making Chaney mad, not Saddam.

    And why is ABC spreading Bush Administration propoganda?

    Oh, I don't know.

    I'd say that taking down WTC was a rather well thought out target, wouldn't you?

    It is, after all, or was, rather, the HQ of western imperialism, as far as they were concerned.

    The Pentagon, also, a rather well thought out target, given its mission.

    While I agree with you that many of the jihadists are probably not very sharp tools, I'm inclined to think the people leading those movements are nobody's fools.
