::: Saddam and 9-11 Connection? :::
Terrorist behind September 11 strike was trained by Saddam
Iraq's coalition government claims that it has uncovered documentary proof that Mohammed Atta, the al-Qaeda mastermind of the September 11 attacks against the US, was trained in Baghdad by Abu Nidal, the notorious Palestinian terrorist.
Details of Atta's visit to the Iraqi capital in the summer of 2001, just weeks before he launched the most devastating terrorist attack in US history, are contained in a top secret memo written to Saddam Hussein, the then Iraqi president, by Tahir Jalil Habbush al-Tikriti, the former head of the Iraqi Intelligence Service.
The handwritten memo, a copy of which has been obtained exclusively by the Telegraph, is dated July 1, 2001 and provides a short resume of a three-day "work programme" Atta had undertaken at Abu Nidal's base in Baghdad.
When did the Iraqi coalition discover the memo? If not yesterday, why have
we not heard about it before now. The is even a reference to a Niger
Shipment, an unspecified shipment - believed to be uranium.
I don't know guys but it sounds like horse hockey to me! Never forget all
the WMD reports that came in just after the "end of major combat."
