More information on “The Connection.”
Prove the Connection? What’s left to prove, anyway? Here’s a wrap up from wnd about the latest connections found in Saddam’s docs, some of which have been published on the internet (thanks to the President of the United States). Stephen Hayes of the Weekly Standard on the number of documents already released. And a previous piece in the Standard. Here’s ABC News’ take on some of the documents released.

“Osama bin Laden and the Taliban”
Document dated Sept.
15, 2001
An Iraqi intelligence service document saying that their Afghani
informant, who’s only identified by a number, told them that the Afghani Consul
Ahmed Dahastani claimed the following in front of him:
That OBL and the
Taliban are in contact with Iraq and that a group of Taliban and bin Laden group
members visited Iraq. That the U.S. has proof the Iraqi government and “bin
Laden’s group” agreed to cooperate to attack targets inside America. That in
case the Taliban and bin Laden’s group turn out to be involved in “these
destructive operations,” the U.S. may strike Iraq and Afghanistan. That the
Afghani consul heard about the issue of Iraq’s relationship with “bin Laden’s
group” while he was in Iran.

“Al Qaeda Presence in Iraq”
Document dated August 2002

A number of correspondences to check rumors
that some members of al Qaeda
organization have entered Iraq. Three letters
say this information cannot be
confirmed. The letter on page seven, however,
says that information coming from
“a trustworthy source” indicates that
subjects who are interested in dealing
with al Qaeda are in Iraq and have
several passports.
