Saddam was working with Al Qaeda

I've heard we went to war for 2 reasons, WMD in Iraq and the Saddam and Al Qaeda connection. While it's been communicated there was no 911 tactical planning connection between Al Qaeda, there are numerous cases of the late Saddam's Iraq regime working with Al Qaeda. This is probably misunderstood, miscommunicated, and/or misconstrued by many and the media. I believe that Stephen Hayes, has given a good case for the connection that hasn't been effectively communicated to the public.

Even Al Gore said that there was no connection, said that it was a lie, but never backed up his statement. In the past Gore had used the Al Qaeda connection to attack the terrorists camps in Sudan. Hillary, Lieberman, Bye, George Tenent, backed up the connection in the past. New prime minister and new deputy minister disagree with Gore.

Listen to Stephen F. Hayes talking about the connections author "The Connection: How al Qaeda's Collaboration with Saddam Hussein Has Endangered America":

The book:

Iraq WMD Moved by Russia!?

I have heard it said that there was no doubt Iraq had WMD from worldwide sources (before the war). Congress agreed as well as Great Britain, Germany, and France (FYI: Hillary Clinton even agreed with this when she voted to fund the war with John Kerry and the congress). So how could the Iraqi's get rid of it all then? Russia was the major WMD supplier to Iraq according to this article and they helped Iraq get rid of them. Click this link from Newsmax dated Feb. 19th 2006. This is supposedly from a high ranking pentagon source.

"The short answer to the question of where the WMD Saddam bought from the Russians went was that they went to Syria and Lebanon," former Deputy Undersecretary of Defense John A. Shaw told an audience Saturday at a privately sponsored "Intelligence Summit" in Alexandria, Va. ("

Why wouldn't the Bush Administration tell the world about this vs. take the heat for not finding significant WMD as they have had since the start of the war? Apparently the stakes are higher than we realize. Goes back to Iran, to stop a nuclear Iran we need Russia and China on our side. By the way Russia, China and France were the suppliers of WMD according to this article.

By the way: I know a friend of mine that has said that the US has provided WMD in the past. This to fight Iran during the previous year during the Iran-Iraq war. I don't need to get into this here but by all accounts Iraq should have disarmed according to UN and worldwide mandate.

While this information is based largely on a single official reported from a single source, the case for it may not be able to convict on, however it may be true, and it enlightening I believe.

Update: The source seems to be isolated and not supported. According to this artical he's been released from his job: Wikipedidia has other claims about him, however, I don't know what's true.

"(AP) U.S. Says Iran Leadership Arming Iraqis"

The case for war is moving forward and this is a good thing as Iran is a terrorist supporting nation led by a regime that denies the holocaust and seems bent on nuclear weapons. They are supplying bombs to attack our troops, and directly responsible for more than 170 of their deaths. "The presentation was the result of weeks of preparation and revisions as U.S. officials put together a package of material to support the Bush administration's claims of Iranian intercession on behalf of militant Iraqis fighting American forces."... "Three senior military officials who explained the display said the "machining process" used in the construction of the deadly bombs had been traced to Iran."

The article goes on: "

The experts, who spoke to a large gathering of reporters on condition that they not be further identified, said the supply trail began with Iran's Revolutionary Guards Quds Force, which also is accused of arming the Hezbollah guerrilla army in Lebanon. The officials said the EFP weapon was first tested there.

The officials said the Revolutionary Guard and its Quds force report directly to Iran's supreme leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei.

The briefing on Iran was revised heavily after officials decided it was not ready for release as planned last month.

Senior U.S. officials in Washington _ cautious after the drubbing the administration took for the faulty intelligence leading to the 2003 Iraq invasion _ had held back because they were unhappy with the original presentation."

President Bush still says he is not planning to attack Iran. He has the authority to do this but congress will make it difficult unless a good case is compiled and even then it will be difficult. Pre-emption may not be popular but it must be done if we are going to stop the terrorists after they strike us again on the US soil. The nations that support terrorists must be coerced to participate however the battle is again more than nations, the ideological war is going to be a long war.

Talks with the President of Iran seem to be fruitless and a stall tactic. Once they get Nuclear weapons we we will have more problems. Don't you think they will make it possible to deliver nuclear weapons to be delivered by terrorists!?

Please support our president and our military in our war on terror.
