Pentagon Study of 600,000 Iraqi Documents Finds No Link Between Al Qaeda and Saddam Hussein

As usual, Ron Paul was correct.

WASHINGTON — A forthcoming Pentagon study has found no operational link between Saddam Hussein and Usama bin Laden's Al Qaeda terrorist network.

McClatchy Newspapers reports that the study, expected to be released later this week, is based on an extensive review of more than 600,000 Iraqi documents that were seized after the U.S.-led war in Iraq in 2003.

While there was no link to Al Qaeda, the investigation revealed that Saddam's regime gave some support to other terror groups in the Middle East, U.S. officials told McClatchy on condition of anonymity. But he targeted those he considered his own enemies, including Shiite Muslims, Kurds, exiles and others, the news service reported.

Sponsored by the Pentagon, the report found no "direct operational link" between Saddam's government in Iraq and bin Laden's Al Qaeda terror ring before the U.S. invasion, an official told McClatchy.

The Bush administration put forth the argument that there was a connection between Saddam and bin Laden when it made the case to go to war with Iraq after the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks on the United States.

The Pentagon study won't be released before Wednesday.

Can we believe this?

Why wouldn't the Pentagon report confirm the lies, if that's what the administration wants us to believe? Why come out and state the opposite? I'm so confused. They all play for the same team, why don't they have their stories straight? Or is there hope that there are actual individuals in the system that want the truth to be known?

It's a done deal

The invasion, the war, the occupation, the raping of Iraq...it's all a done deal. Bush is a lame duck. He has nothing to lose here. The results of this study will sadly be forgotten. People will initially express surprise, then go right back to voting for the same goons who sent us into Iraq, and they will continue to chant "support the troops", they will continue to wear little flag pins and feel all high and patriotic, and nothing will change.

RP2012!

I believe .........

......... there are many individuals in the system that want the truth to be known. Saying that, anyone who had bothered doing the research on Iraq before the illegal war started would have known the truth of the many lies the Bush neocon government put out via their propaganda tool the MSM.

The DP is proof that the grassroots support for Ron Paul and his peaceful message of individual liberty is large, real, and not going away!
