More News About Saddam Hussein's Extensive Terror Ties

Here's some news via the Power Line Blog regarding documents found in Iraq by U.S Military and obtained by the Cybercast News Service.

I looked through this story on the CNS News web site earlier today. Somehow, I don't think the New York Times or any of the other mainstream media will cover this. If they do, they'll attach very little importance to it.

Here are some excerps:

"They detail the Iraqi regime's purchase of five kilograms of mustard gas on Aug. 21, 2000 and three vials of malignant pustule, another term for anthrax, on Sept. 6, 2000. The purchase order for the mustard gas includes gas masks, filters and rubber gloves. The order for the anthrax includes sterilization and decontamination equipment. (See Saddam's Possession of Mustard Gas)"

"The first of the 42 pages of Iraqi documents is dated Jan. 18, 1993, approximately two years after American troops defeated Saddam's army in the first Persian Gulf War. The memo includes Saddam's directive that "the party should move to hunt the Americans who are on Arabian land, especially in Somalia, by using Arabian elements ..."

"An 11-page Iraqi memo, dated Jan. 25, 1993, lists Palestinian, Sudanese and Asian terrorist organizations and the relationships Iraq had with each of them. Of particular importance, Tefft said, are the relationships Iraq had already developed or was in the process of developing with groups and individuals affiliated with al Qaeda, such as Abu Musab al-Zarqawi and Ayman al-Zawahiri. The U.S. currently is offering rewards of up to $25 million for each man's capture."

Since Kerry firmly staked out his anti-Iraq war position in Thursday's debates, I'm curious as to what effect this news will have on his campaign. Granted the mainstream media will pooh-pooh it as another jihad job by people in their pajamas. But then again, look at what happened with the Dan Rather/Memogate business.
