It's Official

According to the Pentagon: Sky is blue. 2+2=4. And there was
no link between Iraq and Al Qaeda before U.S. invasion

An exhaustive review of more than 600,000
Iraqi documents that were captured after the
2003 U.S. invasion has found no evidence that
Saddam Hussein's regime had any operational
links with Osama bin Laden's al Qaida terrorist

The Pentagon-sponsored study, scheduled for
release later this week, did confirm that
Saddam's regime provided some support to other
terrorist groups, particularly in the Middle
East, U.S. officials told McClatchy. However,
his security services were directed primarily
against Iraqi exiles, Shiite Muslims, Kurds
and others he considered enemies of his regime.

The new study of the Iraqi regime's archives
found no documents indicating a "direct
operational link" between Hussein's Iraq and
al Qaida before the invasion, according to a
U.S. official familiar with the report.

Why does the Pentagon hate America?
