This week, another authoritative study “has found no evidence Saddam Hussein’s regime had any operational links with al-Qaeda’s terrorist network.”
Trivia buffs will recall that Saddam’s supposed relationship with al-Qaeda was trumpeted by the Bush White House as a compelling subsidiary justification for the invasion of Iraq.
An invasion, incidentally, that former Under Secretary of Defense, Douglas Feith, has disclosed was already a done deal months before the weapons inspectors were to report on Saddam’s supposed mountains of WMD.
Such trivialities have gone righteously unremarked upon by
