News Flash - - Saddam Is the ATM of Al Qaeda

Deep down, of course, we all knew that Saddam was connected to al Qaeda and to terrorism, but many chose to ignore the evidence and not believe, and some never will be convinced no matter what evidence is produced.
Saddam was a terrorist at home, killing hundreds of thousands of Iraqis in the most brutal and horrendous ways that could be devised. His intention was to spread his terror first to his neighbors and then to the world, including the United States. He was thwarted by the U.N. and U.S. technology, but ever a survivor and a wiley adversary, he devised a way to get even with both: he plundered more than $23 billion from the U.N's "Oil-for- Food Program," and, to get back at the U.S. and to continue his mission, he decided to fund al Qaeda.

Did Saddam pay for 9/11? If he did he's part of a criminal conspiracy, and as every child knows, the hold up man, lookout, and driver, as well as the guy who paid them are all held to the same standard. Richard Miniter, a journalist, has pointed out in his book, Losing Bin Laden, that al Qaeda was always crying for cash, and Saddam had plenty on hand, skimmed from "Oil-for-Food."

1998 begins a chronology that connects the dots. According to intelligence in "the famouss Douglas Feith Memo to Congress revealed by the Weekly Standard's Stephen Hayes, Dr. Ayman al-Zawahiri paid a visit to Baghdad after which, with payment, "a merger in all senses between Saddam and al-Qaeda occured." (see the above link for a link to the memo)

The money has not been accounted for. Millions of dollars of hidden weapons in expensive bunkers and tunnel systems are being discovered and destroyed in Iraq. Residue of chemical and biological programs have turned up, and Saddam's family is living in luxury in Syria and Lebanon. And the insurgents continue to be funded by Saddam's money men outside of Iraq.
