Papers link Saddam to al Qa'idah

The much ridiculed White House claim on Saddam's links to al Qa'idah now seems justified as translations of Iraqi intelligence papers continue to be analyzed.

The papers already documented Saddam's continued planning for WMD, an effort he undertook untill the start of the US Army build up in the area before the invasion.

Newly released papers now point to the Phillipinian al-Qa'idah connection, including an Iraqi diplomat being directly involved in terror.

"Saddam Hussein's regime provided financial support to Abu Sayyaf, the al Qaeda-linked jihadist group founded by Osama bin Laden's brother-in-law in the Philippines in the late 1990s, according to documents captured in postwar Iraq.

An eight-page fax dated June 6, 2001, and sent from the Iraqi ambassador in Manila to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs in Baghdad, provides an update on Abu Sayyaf kidnappings and indicates that the Iraqi regime was providing the group with money to purchase weapons.

The Iraqi regime suspended its support--temporarily, it seems--after high-profile kidnappings, including of Americans, focused international attention on the terrorist group."
