- STEVEN HAYES - VIA POWER LINE - QUOTES A SECTION OF THE PENTAGON REPORT THE MSM CONVENIENTLY LEFT OUT OF THEIR BREATHLESS ANTI-BUSH COVERAGE.
- IT SHOWS THAT THERE WAS INDEED A LOT OF COLLUSION BETWEEN SADDAM AND AL QAEDA RIGHT UP UNTIL THE WAR.
Captured Iraqi documents have uncovered evidence that links the regime of Saddam Hussein to regional and global terrorism, including a variety of revolutionary, liberation, nationalist and Islamic terrorist organizations.HOW IS THE MSM DISTORTING IT? HERE'S A SAMPLING:
While these documents do not reveal direct coordination and assistance between the Saddam regime and the al Qaeda network, they do indicate that Saddam was willing to use, albeit cautiously, operatives affiliated with al Qaeda as long as Saddam could have these terrorist-operatives monitored closely.
Because Saddam's security organizations and Osama bin Laden's terrorist network operated with similar aims (at least in the short term), considerable overlap was inevitable when monitoring, contacting, financing, and training the same outside groups.
This created both the appearance of and, in some way, a "de facto" link between the organizations.
At times, these organizations would work together in pursuit of shared goals but still maintain their autonomy and independence because of innate caution and mutual distrust.
Though the execution of Iraqi terror plots was not always successful, evidence shows that Saddam’s use of terrorist tactics and his support for terrorist groups remained strong up until the collapse of the regime.

THESE MSM STORIES CAN NOW BE SEEN AS NOTHING MORE THAN LIES - PROPAGANDA. PROPAGANDSA WHICH, IF BELIEVED, MAKES US ALL LESS SAFE.
- IT MAKES US GENERALLY MORE RETICENT TO RELY ON INTEL' TO MAKE PREEMPTIVE MOVES AGAINST POTENTIALLY DANGEROUS FOES.
- THIS MEANS WE ARE MORE LIKELY TO GET HIT FIRST.
- AND, IT MAKES A LOT OF PEOPLE MORE DISTRUSTFUL OF BUSH, AND OF THE GOVERNMENT AND THAN WE SHOULD BE.
- AND THIS MAKES US MORE VULNERABLE, TOO.
- THE LEFT - WHICH CONTROLS THE MSM - DOESN'T MIND IF WE GET HIT AGAIN: THEY BASICALLY BELIEVE THAT WE SHOULD BE HIT FIRST BEFORE WE TAKE ANY ACTION (THEY'RE AGAINST PREEMPTIVE WAR),
- AND, THEY OFTEN EXPRESS THE OPINION THAT WE DESERVE TO BE HIT - LIKE OBAMA'S PASTOR.
