Though i'm sure "IT WUZ SADDAM THAT DID IT!!!!!11" can be squeezed into the evidence retroactively, as usual.
Might have been the plan so far... But the Bush administration seems to have forgotten (or never knew) a primordial thing: no battle plan survives first contact with the enemy
(this especially when you are a narrow-minded neo-con with a knowing of the outside world similar to the average school boy's) .
And now, the wind blows in the other direction:
«An allegation that a high-ranking al Qaeda member was an officer in Saddam Hussein's private militia may have resulted from confusion over Iraqi names, a senior administration official said yesterday.
Former Navy secretary John Lehman, a Republican member of the commission investigating the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks, said Sunday that documents found in Iraq "indicate that there is at least one officer of Saddam's Fedayeen, a lieutenant colonel, who was a very prominent member of al Qaeda." Although he said the identity "still has to be confirmed," Lehman introduced the information on NBC's "Meet the Press" to counter a commission staff report that said there were contacts between Iraq and al Qaeda but no "collaborative relationship."
Yesterday, the senior administration official said Lehman had probably confused two people who have similar-sounding names.»
