About Bin Laden and Iraq: Boogie to Baghdad

Saddam and Osama were not these diametrically oppose arch-enemies that realists make them out to be. Read Boogie to Baghdad at My Vast Right Wing Conspiracy.

An excerpt, from a 1999 CNN news story . . .

Saddam Hussein offered asylum

Iraqi President Saddam Hussein has offered asylum to bin Laden, who openly supports Iraq against the Western powers.

. . . And this, from the 9/11 Commission Report (lifted from Rusty Shackleford and his blog The Jawa Report):

Interesting stuff. Circumstantial as to actual alliance between the two, but still, this idea that we've always known for a fact that Saddam wouldn't cooperate on some level with al Qaeda is just wrong.
