Yeah? But what about Halliburton, and KBR?!? ;-)

Even if Allah came down from on high, stating that he commanded Saddam to allow AQ safe harbor in his country (which he did), the left would ignore it, or claim that Allah was a tool of the party.

Right On JD , or they would say that he own,s stock in Halliburton..He, rove and cheney are in cahoots to keep the american people in the dark..

I just read the Britney Spears blog and I'm wondering ... Is there anyway we can get Osama to attack her?

"Dear Boss,we're BUSTED" (Re: point 2) No qualifiers, no in-between-the-lines flowery araby , no code, no microdot , no XYZ (Didn't we train these people?) Oh! and Iran's feet are visible 'neath the curtains, stage right! The scenario is marginally more believable than the discredited Prague-Manila connection. Yet that invented evidence and these new releases align so closely to the line hewn in 1996 after Bibi's "Clean Break" from the U.S.'s dual containment Iraq/Iran policy (REMEMBER?); from balancing powers to isolating and defeating each in it's turn (plus Syria - coincidence! coincidence!). An excellent backgrounder that cuts through the hooey: //www.lrb.co.uk/v28/n06/print/mear01_.html

I have reviewed the memo and it is obvious that it was not typed on an IBM Seletric and must be a phony.

I don't think lefties need too stretch too far for this one: the source is Free Republic.

Source of the quoted translation, but not the documents, jp2.

Yeah, I don't know...

On one hand you have Free Republic and the well known mid-East scholar "jveritas", the other, the 9/11 commission. Hmm. Free Republic. 9/11 Commission.

A tough choice.

So, jp2, how does it feel to be living in a state of constant denial?

"NO! NO! There was NO connection between Iraq and Al-Qaeda! None! La-la-la, I can't HEEEAAARR you!"

The choice is easy ! believe neither , You can clearly see with your own eye,s what is happening in the world ..

Muse: it's possible there was a connection, albeit very slight. I'll go with the 9/11 commission on this one though, as opposed to Free Republic.

Connections in Saudi Arabia, UAE and Pakistan, our "allies," are far much greater however.

Connections in Saudi Arabia, UAE and Pakistan, our "allies," are far much greater however.

I think you're probably right about this. Sooner or later the Saudi funding of Wahabi terrorism and whack job imams and Pakistan's allowing terrorists to operate within their borders is going to have to be addressed.
