    The Zarqawi, Saddam and the al Qaeda Connection

    AddThis Social Bookmark Button
    Every once in a while I run into an Iraq War apologist that uses Zarqawi's presence in Iraq as the connection to al Qaeda. This is BS because Saddam was secular and feared al Qaeda and fundamentalist/extremeness Islam more than he feared us. But, none-the-less these people use this to gloss over failed foreign policy and a mess of a war that we are in (or you could say now in the middle of).

    Well that rational has been dealt another blow...
    The documents, the first of thousands expected to be declassified over the next several months, were released last night via a Pentagon website at the direction of National Intelligence Director John Negroponte.

    Many were in Arabic - with no English translation - including one the administration said showed that Iraqi intelligence officials suspected al Qaida members were inside Iraq in 2002.

    However, one of the documents, a letter from an Iraqi intelligence official, dated August 17, 2002, asked agents in the country to be on the lookout for Abu Musab al-Zarqawi and another unnamed man whose picture was attached.

    I'm sure it will remain in some peoples minds as a great point, but it is a fallacy.
