More on Saddam Hussein and al-Qaeda

Earlier this week, we had this post on the relationship between Saddam Hussein’s Iraq and al-Qaeda. Don’t miss today’s post from powerline which has much more. Here’s the conclusion:

The point is that it takes a special brand of myopia to claim that a significant relationship between Saddam’s regime and the EIJ does not somehow represent a “direct connection” to al Qaeda. Zawahiri and the EIJ are as much ‘al Qaeda’ as bin Laden ever was.

And now, thanks to the recently released Iraqi Intelligence documents, we know that Saddam had a working relationship with the EIJ going back to at least 1990.

There’s much more, so read the whole thing here, and don’t forget to invite your liberal friends who are chin deep in denial.
