Saddam and Osama

ABC News is now reporting that Saddam Hussein and Osam Bin Ladin had a much closer relationship than previously reported:

A newly released pre-war Iraqi document indicates that an official representative of Saddam Hussein's government met with Osama bin Laden in Sudan on February 19, 1995 after approval by Saddam Hussein. Bin Laden asked that Iraq broadcast the lectures of Suleiman al Ouda, a radical Saudi preacher, and suggested "carrying out joint operations against foreign forces" in Saudi Arabia. According to the document, Saddam's presidency was informed of the details of the meeting on March 4, 1995 and Saddam agreed to dedicate a program for them on the radio.

This isn't news to me, but it may be for some people. I suppose the rationalizaton will be that Saddam may have had a previous operational relationship with Osama to attack Americans, there is just no evidence that the operational relationship was ongoing in 2001....
