You're so predictable, Brandon. But the nits being picked today and
seen around the world were all from Saddam's beard.
The WMDs will show up, just as Saddam did eventually. Meanwhile,
another of your previous scoffs fell by the wayside today: proof that
Saddam Hussein was the key backer of 9/11:
Terrorist behind September 11 strike was trained by Saddam
By Con Coughlin
London Telegraph, Dec. 12, 2003
Iraq's coalition government claims that it has uncovered documentary
proof that Mohammed Atta, the al-Qaeda mastermind of the September 11
attacks against the US, was trained in Baghdad by Abu Nidal, the
notorious Palestinian terrorist.
Details of Atta's visit to the Iraqi capital in the summer of 2001,
just weeks before he launched the most devastating terrorist attack in
US history, are contained in a top secret memo written to Saddam
Hussein, the then Iraqi president, by Tahir Jalil Habbush al-Tikriti,
the former head of the Iraqi Intelligence Service.
The handwritten memo, a copy of which has been obtained exclusively by
the Telegraph, is dated July 1, 2001 and provides a short resume of a
three-day "work programme" Atta had undertaken at Abu Nidal's base in
In the memo, Habbush reports that Atta "displayed extraordinary
effort" and demonstrated his ability to lead the team that would be
"responsible for attacking the targets that we have agreed to
The second part of the memo, which is headed "Niger Shipment",
contains a report about an unspecified shipment - believed to be
uranium - that it says has been transported to Iraq via Libya and
Although Iraqi officials refused to disclose how and where they had
obtained the document, Dr Ayad Allawi, a member of Iraq's ruling
seven-man Presidential Committee, said the document was genuine.
"We are uncovering evidence all the time of Saddam's involvement with
al-Qaeda," he said. "But this is the most compelling piece of evidence
that we have found so far. It shows that not only did Saddam have
contacts with al-Qaeda, he had contact with those responsible for the
September 11 attacks."
Although Atta is believed to have been resident in Florida in the
summer of 2001, he is known to have used more than a dozen aliases,
and intelligence experts believe he could easily have slipped out of
the US to visit Iraq.
Abu Nidal, who was responsible for the failed assassination of the
Israeli ambassador to London in 1982, was based in Baghdad for more
than two decades.

Well, we did know Saddam was real.
We'll see if it holds up to scrutiny. Your last bit of evidence
failed miserably once you realized that the Weekly Standard's editor,
the author of the article, Paul Wolfowitz and Donald Rumsfeld are all
members of Project for a New American Century, a radical group that
promotes American geostrategic preponderance in world affairs and has
strongly advocated regime change in Iraq since the 1990s.
Who knows, this one may be the right one, but it doesn't change the
fact that Bush & Co lied through their teeth to the world to get the
results that they wanted.
Perhaps, if we don't have to turn him over for a civil trial in Iraq for a
few weeks, we may be able to have a chat with him, and find out if he placed
WMDs in Syria, or still has something hidden in Iraq.
I'm no fan of our intelligence community, or of Bush's willingness to act on
slanted information, but there were just too many metal shipments into Iraq,
and too many reports of weapons works, for us to have found NOTHING. That's
just too clean.
Maybe we'll get a better idea in a few weeks. In the mean time, let's pray
for our soldiers during the short term desperate increase in attacks we can
expect, and then pray for an oppportunity to get them the hell out of there,
and bring them home!
And that's exactly why I don't buy American cars. Well, the actual reason is
that they're not worth their money (steel tarifs come to mind).
The US just cleaned their own mess (they recruited Saddam to fight Iran),
why would any country get involved besides for the contracts?? France and
Germany are the few countries that stand for their values instead of their
and other countries money.
Another load of leftist crap! Saddam invaded Iran in 1980 to seize the Shaat
Al Arab waterway and got his clock cleaned in the process. Name exactly
where the US directed this great ally of France & Germany to attck his
Exactly, that's why France & Germany didn;t want the truth of their
complicity in Saddam's crimes to become public.
instead of their and other countries money. <<
Just how stupid dio you think the world is? "Stand for their values"? Are
you kidding me, these twop countries are steeped in the blood of Saddam and
his henchmens' crimes. French & German contracts with Sadaam were worth
billions, a nice cosy little arrangement with an international despot. You
should be ashamed for what your countries have done. Americans will never
forget this treachery.
You, sir, are a bloody stupid moron. Pardon my inability to be cordial but
fools such as yourself make my blood boil and force me to un-Christian verbiage.
Saddam was at his worst, in the 80's the US were buddies with him. Maybe this
from those peddlers of US government propaganda will turn your light on, if a
Take a look at that picture of that war criminal rumsfeld shaking hands
with Hussein. What the article doesn't mention that while Hussein was indeed
improving Iraq structurally this was actually when he did his worst murdering.
was in Iraq right after Hussein did his gassings, rumsfeld didn't mention
was only interested in business. Where the h*ll do you think he got this chem
and military hardware?? from the US and Britain!
Screw Hussein, he should face justice next to Bush!
What!??!?! You @$% idiot it wasn't Germany and France that killed 10,000
in Afghanistan in the last two years and 30,000-40,000 Iraqis this year!

"Unthinking"? How about not Socialist / Pacifist indoctrinated! You leftists
will never come to terms with whats going on until some Islamist vermin
senslessley kills you and your family so he can screw 72 virgins. You
appease these murdering scum aprently so you'll be welcome at all the cool
leftist whine & cheeze partys!
You gotta be kidding me!! Is THAT REALLY what you think I am???? I know
that some of my posts don't betray it but I'm actually a Baptist. I think that

Amen. Good for Japan for sticking to their commitment and supporting us.
Shame on Germany and France from putting money ahead of principle.
