Saddam's Ties to Terror

[F]rom 1999 through 2002, "elite Iraqi military units" trained roughly 8,000 terrorists at three different camps--in Samarra and Ramadi in the Sunni Triangle, as well as at Salman Pak, where American forces in 2003 found the fuselage of an aircraft that might have been used for training. Many of the trainees were drawn from North African terror groups with close ties to al Qaeda, including Algeria's GSPC and the Sudanese Islamic Army.

So reports Stephen Hayes of The Weekly Standard, as set forth in this piece from The Wall Street Journal.

And to support his claim, Mr. Hayes quotes 11 unnamed sources who told him they saw documents containing this information. Mr. Hayes does not have the documents in questions, nor does he claim to have actually seen them.

According to Mr. Hayes's reportage, members of the Bush administration (most notably John Negroponte) are stonewalling attempts to release the documents that prove Saddam Hussein supported terrorists (not al Quaeda, but what the hey). Poor George Bush, his own administration is covering up evidence that kinda almost supports one of his primary justifications for bringing us into war.

Yeah, that's the ticket.

Didn't Dan Rather teach you, Mr. Twister, that documentation was irrelevent?

It's the preponderance of evidence that counts, right?
