REPORT: NO PREWAR SADDAM-AL-QAIDA TIE



Here's your Friday Dump Story. They put it out there on Friday's in hope that you will forget about it by Monday!


There's no evidence Saddam Hussein had a relationship with Abu Musab al-Zarqawi and his Al-Qaida associates, according to a Senate report on prewar intelligence on Iraq. Democrats said the report undercuts President Bush's justification for going to war.

***So you need to remember this when the Bush Administration/Israel come up with their "October Surprises." (You can read that right here on this blog. It was put in today and it's called "WILL BUSH 'OCTOBER SURPRISE' SCAM TRIGGER WORLD WAR III?"

The declassified document being released Friday by the Senate 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.

It discloses for the first time an October 2005 CIA assessment that prior to the war Saddam's government "did not have a relationship, harbor, or turn a blind eye toward Zarqawi and his associates."

***This makes me believe that the "October Surprises" from the Repubs will happen because they are just that desperate and they have to save face, since even after Oct. 2005, the Bush Administration continued to lie to the American people!

Bush and other administration officials have said that the presence of Zarqawi in Iraq before the war was evidence of a connection between Saddam's government and al-Qaida. Zarqawi was killed by a U.S. airstrike in June this year.

The long-awaited report, said Sen. Carl Levin (D-MICH), a member of the committee, is "a devastating indictment of the Bush-Cheney administration's unrelenting, misleading and deceptive attempts" to link Saddam to al-Qaida.

The report, 2 years in the making, comes out amid a series of Bush speeches stressing that pursuing the military effort in Iraq is crucial to winning the war on terrorism, and 2 months before that policy will be tested in midterm elections.

The report deals with 2 aspects of prewar intelligence---the role of the Iraqi National Congress and its exile leader Ahmed Chalabi and a comparison of prewar intelligence assessments and postwar findings on WMD's and Saddam's link to terrorist groups.
