Saddam's Terror Links Being Revealed

Richard at Hyscience notes this story from the Scripps Howard News Service:
Drop by drop, isolated news stories and emerging documents erode the popular myth that Saddam Hussein was clueless about terrorism. These revelations undermine war critics' efforts to whitewash Baghdad's ancien regime - such as when Senate Democratic leader Harry Reid of Nevada declared: "There was no terrorists in Iraq." Likewise, Sen. Carl Levin, D-Mich., describes a "nonexistent relationship between al-Qaida and Saddam Hussein."

Reid, Levin and others who dismiss the Baathist-terrorist nexus would struggle to do so if the Bush administration unveiled the evidence tying Saddam to Osama bin Laden and other extremists. President Bush immediately should release papers discussed in the Jan. 9 Newsweek and the Jan. 16 Weekly Standard.
