Saddam saw al-Qaida as threat

Yahoo! News reported Saddam Hussein regarded al-Qaida as a threat

That just means that he was smart, not that he did not work with them. Russia worked with Hitler until he attacked them too, and then Russia worked with the Allies, but not because he was buddy buddy with Roosevelt and Churchill.
rather than a possible ally, a Senate report says, contradicting assertions President Bush has used to build support for the war in Iraq. The report also newly faults intelligence gathering in the lead-up to the 2003 invasion.
Gee, thats news.
As recently as an Aug. 21 news conference, Bush said people should "imagine a world in which you had Saddam Hussein" with the capacity to make weapons of mass destruction and "who had relations with Zarqawi.".. It said al-Zarqawi was in Baghdad from May until late November 2002. But "postwar information indicates that Saddam Hussein attempted, unsuccessfully, to locate and capture al-Zarqawi

and that the regime did not have a relationship with
I know the Dems support Gay Rights, but did Saddam and Zarquawi have to swap body fluids for them to be considered in a relationship.
, harbor, or turn a blind eye toward Zarqawi."
He did not try very hard to find him. And what about the al Qaeda training camp in northern Iraq. He could not have bombed them because of the No Fly Zone, but if he really felt Al Qqeda was a threat, do you think he would have allowed that threat to have training camps on Iraqi soil?

Not really sure which would be on top, or what they would be doing, but I bet you could find a magazine to print it.

I would not buy a copy
