JOHN HINDERAKER: “The current flap over the Pentagon Inspector General’s report on Douglas Feith’s Office of Special Plans has embarrassed the Associated Press, the Washington Post and, if he has any shame, the Inspector General. The controversy does have the merit, though, of raising once again the issue of the relationship between Saddam’s Iraq and al Qaeda and other terrorists.” They’ve got video from 2000. If nothing else, it blows away the revisionist argument that claimed connections between Saddam and Osama originated with the Bush Administration.
UPDATE: Earlier it said “Saddam and Iraq,” not Saddam and Osama. Fixed now. Thanks to reader E. Cart for the correction. So far as I know, nobody has yet claimed that Bush made up connections between Saddam and Iraq, though it’ll probably happen soon . . . .
