Saddam's ties to the Taliban

Our contributor Ray Robison continues his pathbreaking work at Foxnews.com:

Did Saddam Hussein's inner circle and the Taliban rulers in Afghanistan actively court each other in hopes of forging an anti—American alliance in the region?

Ray Robison, a former member of the CIA—directed Iraq Survey Group (ISG), examined efforts by Saddam Hussein to build and hide weapons of mass destruction, and supervised a group of linguists to analyze, archive and exploit documents and materials of Saddam's regime.  [....]

...in 1999 the Taliban welcomed "Islamic relations with Iraq" to mediate among the Taliban, the Northern Alliance and Russia, and that the Taliban reciprocated with an invitation to Iraqi officials to visit Afghanistan.

The document appears to be a notebook kept by an Iraqi Intelligence Service (IIS) agent, and apparently captured in 2003. The translation is provided by Robison's associate, known here as 'Sammi.' The notebook deals extensively with the meetings between a prominent Taliban supporter and former Saddam regime officials.

Slowly but surely, through the hard work of Ray and others, evidence is accumulating putting to the lie the claims that Saddam has nothing to do with 9/11. Congratulations to Ray and to Fox News for sponsoring this valuable work.
