  •  Let me state it another way (none)
    1. Safire claims that Ansar thrived under Saddam. But they only thrived in the Kurdish area where Saddam had no control. So if they thrived, it had more to do with our allies the Kurds or (shock) us.
    2. The CD solicits help in the future. That implies that they haven't been getting help in the past. This is actually another piece of evidence that the claims Bush was making--that Al Qaeda supported SH in the past--is bogus.
    3. No one is willing to claim this document is authentic. It smells like the papers conveniently found indicting a British MP of a relationship with Saddam, or the papers showing Russian collaboration with Saddam, or some paperwork that suggested there was ongoing WMDs. Or that silly letter claiming Iraq was shopping for uranium in Niger. All of these pieces of propaganda were proven to be false with relatively little effort.
