Saddam's Terror Links - WSJ.com

Saddam's Terror Links - WSJ.com: "It's true that the Pentagon report found no 'smoking gun,' i.e., a direct connection on a joint Iraq-al Qaeda operation. Supposedly this vindicates the view that Iraq's liberation was launched on false premises. But the Administration was always cautious, with Colin Powell alleging merely a 'sinister nexus' in his 2003 U.N. speech. If anything, sinister is an understatement. The main Iraq intelligence failure was over WMD, but the report indicates that the CIA also underestimated Saddam's ties to global terror cartels."
