One again, it has been confirmed that there was no connection between Saddam and al-Qaeda, this time by the Senate.
Al-Qaeda was in Afghanistan, chumming around with the Taliban...
This is the same Afghanistan that we basically abandoned to go war a completely unrelated war in Iraq. Meanwhile, the Taliban is growing stronger in Afghanistan and most of the country is still a haven to terrorist.
So, please tell me again - How is Bush making us safer and fighting a war on terror? If he were really fighting a war on terror, he would have finished the job in Afghanistan.
Everytime he says "9/11" or the "war on terror," he just makes me want to puke.
Face it people. The only connection that al-Queda and Saddam had was when Rumsfeld was dealing with them both.
Senate: No prewar Saddam-al-Qaida ties
By JIM ABRAMS, Associated Press Writer
WASHINGTON - There's no evidence Saddam Hussein had ties with al-Qaida, according to a Senate report on prewar intelligence that Democrats say undercuts President Bush's justification for invading Iraq.
Bush administration officials have insisted on a link between the Iraqi regime and terror leader Abu Musab al-Zarqawi. Intelligence agencies, however, concluded there was none.
Republicans countered that there was little new in the report and Democrats were trying to score election-year points with it.
The declassified document released Friday by the intelligence committee also explores the role that inaccurate information supplied by the anti-Saddam exile group the Iraqi National Congress had in the march to war.
