OOPS, REVOKE HIS SECULAR SAINTHOOD:

Spinning 9/11: The press ignores the commission's most interesting findings. (Opinion Journal, June 18, 2004)

There's also the testimony the Commission heard Wednesday from Patrick Fitzgerald. The former Manhattan prosecutor was asked about his 1998 indictment against Osama bin Laden that asserted that al Qaeda had an "understanding" with Iraq that it would not "work against that government" and that "on certain projects, specifically including weapons development," they would "work cooperatively." Mr. Fitzgerald testified that "there was that relationship that went from opposing each other to not opposing each other to possibly working with each other."

According to the left, Saddam and al Qaida hated each other -- in fact, al Qaida had no bitterer enemy than Saddam Hussein, so they never could have co-operated on any sort of terrorism effort (I expect within a couple of years this will have grown into the idea that Saddam was such an enemy of Osama that, were it not for the U.S-backed embargo against Iraq, he would have wiped out al Qaida all by himself in the 1990s and prevented Sept. 11 from ever happening).

I hadn't heard about this. Most interesting. Is it related to John O'Neill (the former FBI agent killed on 9/11) and his work in chasing Osama?
