Seized Documents Show Al-Qaieda Ties to Saddam
Republican Senators Rick Santorum and House Intelligence Chairman Peter Hoekstra announced today that they have successfully lobbied the White House and intelligence leaders to release millions of pages of documents and audio recordings captured during U.S. military operations in Iraq and Afghanistan. These documents contain compelling evidence that Saddam had a relationship with, and detailed knowledge of, al-Qaieda. Many of these files have been posted HERE.
These senators have had these documents and audio files, most of which have not been translated, posted for public consumption and feedback.
"We are hoping to unleash the power of the Internet, unleash the power of the blogosphere to get through these documents and give us a better understanding of exactly what was going on in Iraq prior to the war," Senator Hoekstra stated today.How far this will go in the Bush-hating media? Not far - like evidence of WMDs smuggled to Syria, it is yet another significant piece of a puzzle that takes the wind out of the case the media has been trying to build against President Bush and the war in Iraq.
