Now the Pentagon Says No Link Between Saddam and Al Qaida

Gee. This makes what Bush told the public a.... LIE

An exhaustive review of more than 600,000 Iraqi documents that were captured after the 2003 U.S. invasion has found no evidence that Saddam Hussein's regime had any operational links with Osama bin Laden's al Qaida terrorist network.

The Pentagon-sponsored study, scheduled for release later this week, did confirm that Saddam's regime provided some support to other terrorist groups, particularly in the Middle East, U.S. officials told McClatchy. However, his security services were directed primarily against Iraqi exiles, Shiite Muslims, Kurds and others he considered enemies of his regime.

The new study of the Iraqi regime's archives found no documents indicating a "direct operational link" between Hussein's Iraq and al Qaida before the invasion, according to a U.S. official familiar with the report.

And let's not forget-Hillary Clinton voted to give Bush the authority to invade and attack Iraq. UPDATE Rolling Stone comment.

So here’s the question for Hillary Clinton. In the senator’s war-authorization speech in October 2002, she claimed this: 

Saddam “has also given aid, comfort, and sanctuary to terrorists, including Al Qaeda members.”

The National Intelligence Estimate at the time cast serious doubts on any Al Qaeda/Iraq link. But Clinton has acknowledged she did not read the NIE.

So what was her source for this faulty intelligence?

And why did Senator Clinton believe it credible enough to use as a linchpin justification for war?

and one more repeat from the past, from a video compile I did last year, which has 4 occasions in which Bush denied that he was trying to say Saddam and 9/11 were connected.
