“A US military study officially acknowledged for the first time yesterday that Saddam Hussein had no direct ties to al-Qaida, undercutting the Bush administration’s central case for war with Iraq.
The Pentagon study based on more than 600,000 documents recovered after US and UK troops toppled Hussein in 2003, discovered “no ‘smoking gun’ (ie, direct connection) between Saddam’s Iraq and al-Qaida”, its authors wrote.
George Bush and his senior aides have made numerous attempts to link Saddam Hussein and Al Qaeda terror in their justification for waging war against Iraq.
Wary of embarrassing press coverage noting that the new study debunks those claims, the US defence department attempted to bury the release of the report yesterday.”

For what the rest of the world except Bush, Howard and Blair knew all along, 85,000+ innocent dead people have been lost to prove this, what a bloody mess.
And they tried to impeach Clinton for getting a Blow Job? Let’s hope history remembers Bush for the monster he is, alongside the likes of Atilla the Hun and Hitler.
