Massive Proof Of Iraqi-Al Qaeda Connection

Stephen Hayes of the Weekly Standard explains how millions of documents have been uncovered from Saddam's files that show how 8,000 terrorists were trains in Iraq at 3 camps from 1999-2002. Saddam kept complete records ala the Nazis. While many were destroyed prior to and during the US invasion, the wealth of information in forms of computer hard drives and discs is mammoth. What is now needed are a sufficient number of transaltors. hayes explains:

Intelligence officials believe that some of these terrorists returned to Iraq and are responsible for attacks against Americans and Iraqis...Most of the 50,000 translated documents relate directly to weapons of mass destruction programs and scientists, since David Kay and his Iraq Survey Group--who were among the first to analyze the finds--considered those items top priority. "At first, if it wasn't WMD, it wasn't translated. It wasn't exploited," says a former military intelligence officer who worked on the documents in Iraq.

Lt. Col. Gordon Cucullu says the non-WMD intelligence will now be of use in tracking the "insurgents". He writes:

Even more compelling at the moment than accessing the WMD material, is deciphering the list of names of the terrorists and their cell leaders. Considering that post-Operation Iraqi Freedom many of these thugs have been drawn back to the fight in Iraq like loathsome moths to the flame, it would assist both new Iraqi government and American military to have these names and the personal data accompanying them. Hayes quotes one official as saying “We had box loads of Iraqi Intelligence records - their names, their jobs, all sorts of detailed information. In an insurgency, wouldn't that have been helpful?”

History has a funny way of proving things (and people) right.

I don't think Karl Marx will be proven correct by History.
