More on Saddam and 9/11

More evidence that Saddam's Iraq and bin Laden were not strangers passing in the night.

And, the "mainstream" media were aware of this fact.

Two articles follow the article I mentioned earlier from

First is this piece by the The Wall Street Journal.

Second is this article in The Weekly Standard. Author Stephen Hayes provides quotes from news sources such as ABC and NPR dating back to 1999 describing connections and coordination between Saddam and bin Laden and al Qaeda.

Money Quote:

Where did journalists get the idea that Saddam and bin Laden might be coordinating efforts? Among other places, from high-ranking Clinton administration officials. . . .

The Clinton administration's indictment read unequivocally:

"Al Qaeda reached an understanding with the government of Iraq that al Qaeda would not work against that government and that on particular projects, specifically including weapons development, al Qaeda would work cooperatively with the Government of Iraq."
