Newly-de-classified and released Iraqi documents prove Saddam Hussein/Osama bin Laden communication re "joint operations" between the two....
Now we can start looking for the egg on many hard-left Democrat faces and a dearth of reportage about this in the mainstream media arm of the Democrat Party. They don't like it too pretty good when they're shown to have been wrong in their cacaphony of anti-Bush blasts for the past five (5) years. You know the ones.... They included such tripe as "Bush lied and people died" and "Bush took us to war without proof of a Saddam Hussein/Osama bin Laden connection."
Soooo....., who were the real.... actual.... loud and vocal "liars?" And where are they.... now that the the truth is out there in the sunshine?
More below and here.
"Bin Laden Sought 'Joint Operations' With Saddam"
"An Iraqi intelligence document released last week indicates that Osama bin Laden sought to conduct "joint operations" with Saddam Hussein's regime six years before the 9/11 attacks - and was given the green light by the Iraqi dictator.
The document, detailed in the March 27 issue of the Weekly Standard, describes a Feb. 1995 meeting between bin Laden and Iraqi intelligence that was personally approved by "the Honorable Presidency" - an apparent reference to Saddam.
"We discussed with [bin Laden] his organization. He requested the broadcast of the speeches of Sheikh Sulayman al-Uda [who has influence within Saudi Arabia and outside due to being a well known religious and influential personality] and to designate a program for them through the broadcast directed inside Iraq, and to perform joint operations against the foreign forces in the land of Hijaz [Saudi Arabia]."
The document goes on to note that "the Honorable Presidency was informed of the details of the meeting in our letter 370 on March 4, 1995."
The document indicates that Saddam personally granted bin Laden's request for help with propaganda broadcasts and instructed his agents "to develop the relationship [with bin Laden] and the cooperation between the two sides to see what other doors of cooperation and agreement open up.
