Captured Baathists reveal alliance with Islamo-terrorists

WASHINGTON ? It has been denied, downplayed, overlooked, forgotten, disregarded and omitted from the public record.
But a thorough review of open-source material demonstrates conclusive and widespread cooperation between former members of Saddam Hussein's Baathist regime and terrorists from the Iraqi al-Qaida network.

Dozens of former Saddam Hussein loyalists captured by U.S.-led coalition forces in Iraq were found to be working with al-Qaida or linked to their operations.

Here are some notable players in that alliance:

Muhammed Hila Hammad Ubaydi, aka Abu Ayman, was the former aide to the chief of staff of intelligence during the Saddam regime for 30 years. Ubaydi later led the Secret Islamic Army in the Northern Babil Province and was said to have had strong ties to the former terror leader Abu Musab Al-Zarqawi.

  • Saddam killed any person that opposed him -- priests included (Moqtada Al Sadr's father, for example)

    if he ever came across Al Qaeda members they were a temporary solution to a short-term problem. i think the closest he got to using religious extremists was in forming his own militia -- the Fedayeen Saddam.

    i'm more aware of Abu Nidal's group and Saddam's gov't -- however Abu Nidal was assassinated by a large group of Mukabarat right after the invasion (probably knew too much).

    Who said it was involved in 911? I never said Iraq was involved in 911.. Nor Have I stated alqaeda colluded with Saddam in terrorist attacks.

    No it doesn't What does the taleban technically have to do with 911 other than they were harboring alqaeda?

    911 is about alqaeda alone no its about islamic militancy in a broader scale.

    And yes Alqaeda is IN IRAQ in force so ergo today regardless of the debate back in 2003 the fact is ALqaeda is in iraq today and exists in force.

    ERGO alqaeda of iraq.. Were in iraq because of saddams ties to terror, Not accounting for all his wmd programs and material, Breach of UN resolution 1441 and every other one, and refusal to fully comply with the post 1991 war issue of disarmament.

    We went to iraq in 2003 not 2001"
    I see. You believe something totally different now compared to the cases Bush made to the people. I would argue this: saddam was a Baath party line tower meaning he's secular. He seemed to get conveniently religious around '91 as to appeal to the fundamentalist who were the ones responsible for 911. i dont think the regime of saddam has a real relationship with fundamentalists. If anything the fundamentalists were a long lasting threat to him since the islamic republic's revolution in 1979. I just dont buy into a concrete, partners-in-crime type of connection b/t saddam and al-queda

  • DaveEngland: "The main reason given for going into Iraq was because of WMD'z, terrorism, and to spread freedom to the oppressed Iraqi people, and because of terror links to 9/11.

    Most of these people were affiliated with terrorists AFTER the war. Look at the dates they were captured: AFTER THE INVASION (most of them).

    And were linked to the baathist pre-invasion some of these were. I never heard Bush say iraq was connected to 911 but Saddam was linked to terrorism.
