More Iraq / Al Qaeda Connections

Democrats have long preached the lie that Iraq and Al Qaeda had never had any connections prior to the beginning of the Iraqi War in 2003. The facts demonstrate otherwise. Stephen Hayes of The Weekly Standard chronicles many such connections in his book aptly named, The Connection. This past week Hayes joined Thomas Joscelyn and Dan Darling in presenting several essays in The Weekly Standard ( here, here,here,and here) that add more evidence to the reality of the long ( about 15 years) and serious cooperative connection between Saddam Hussein and Islamic terrorism including Al Qaeda. Must read stuff.
