Iraq and al-Qaida

Here is all the evidence I could find that link al-Qaida and Iraq.

Iran spies were not believed which may be a good thing.

All of that was to show that al-Qaida and other countries have ties to each other, and that there are many things that we don't know, and given the nature of the organizations that we are dealing with, we can also assume a lot.

Now the good stuff.

I don't know how creditable this site is, but here it is anyways.

A interesting site

A well researched article

More good stuff

Ok do you or do you not believe that Iraq and al-Qaida were linked?

Given the Kay report do you belief that Saddam Hussein was harmless?

Well I think they only way you can answer that question is the same way Powell did.

QUESTION: On the subject of weapons of mass destruction, Mr. Secretary, one of
the other conclusions of that report was that there was no evidence of a
connection between Saddam Hussein and al-Qaida and that there was no evidence
of a likelihood that he would transfer weapons to al-Qaida.

What do you think about that, looking back? And I know that, you know,
hindsight is 20/20, but to think back --


QUESTION: Do you think that there were ways other than war to have handled this
threat and that the -- that it was not an imminent threat to the United States?

SECRETARY POWELL: My presentation on the 5th of February when I talked to this
issue made it clear that we had seen some links and connections to terrorist
organizations over time, and I focused on one particular case, Zawahiri, and I
think that was a pretty solid case.

There is not -- you know, I have not seen smoking-gun, concrete evidence about
the connection, but I think the possibility of such connections did exist and
it was prudent to consider them at the time that we did.

Now that you have Powells remarks and all the above information read this.
