It's Amazing what you can find in the archives

Hat tip to Evan Maloney at Brain Terminal for this priceless little article. Evan found an archived 1999 report from CNN stating that Osama bin Laden had departed Afghanistan and that his whereabouts were unknown.

Buried in the middle of the article is this bombshell:
Iraqi President Saddam Hussein has offered asylum to bin Laden, who openly supports Iraq against the Western powers.
What is CNN talking about? Everyone knows that Osama bin Laden hated Saddam Hussein and Iraq because the country was Godless. And everyone knows that there was no connection between al Qaeda and Saddam Hussein and his Baath Party. I know this because the moonbat left tells me so.

What no self-respecting leftist has ever been able to explain to me is if al Qaeda had no interest in Iraq and couldn't stand Saddam Hussein, then why did they rush to Iraq to fight after the Americans arrived and kicked Saddam out? For goodness' sake, doesn't anyone remember the name of Abu Musab al-Zarqawi's organization? It was (is) called al Qaeda in Iraq. If there is no connection between Iraq and al Qaeda, kindly explain to me the presence of a terrorist organization with that name in the country of Iraq.

I get so tired of the mantras about there being absolutely no connection between al Qaeda and Saddam. How insulting to try to sell that zinger to the American people. Problem is, too many of the American people are buying.

Good Day to You, Sir
