But we shouldn’t have gone to war with this tyrant after the 9/11 terrorist attacks, right? (Hat tip: Michelle Malkin)
Saddam’s Terror Training Camps – Weekly Standard
THE FORMER IRAQI REGIME OF Saddam Hussein trained thousands of radical Islamic terrorists from the region at camps in Iraq over the four years immediately preceding the U.S. invasion, according to documents and photographs recovered by the U.S. military in postwar Iraq. The existence and character of these documents has been confirmed to THE WEEKLY STANDARD by eleven U.S. government officials.
The discovery of the information on jihadist training camps in Iraq would seem to have two major consequences: It exposes the flawed assumptions of the experts and U.S. intelligence officials who told us for years that a secularist like Saddam Hussein would never work with Islamic radicals, any more than such jihadists would work with an infidel like the Iraqi dictator. It also reminds us that valuable information remains buried in the mountain of documents recovered in Afghanistan and Iraq over the past four years.
Hey, Senators Kennedy, Kerry, Reid & Rep. Murtha — don’t let these facts get in the way of your coddling our enemies with your rhetoric.
