Amazingly in-depth article, josh -- and critical, as well. Thanks for this.

quote:
THE 27-PAGE DOCUMENT—entitled “A Decade of Deception and Defiance”—made no mention of any Iraqi ties to Osama bin Laden. But it did highlight Saddam’s backing of the Mujahedin-e Khalq Organization (MKO), an obscure Iranian dissident group that has gathered surprising support among members of Congress in past years. One of those supporters, the documents show, is a top commander in President Bush’s war on terrorism: Attorney General John Ashcroft, who became involved with the MKO while a Republican senator from Missouri.

Wheels within wheels!

Hard to believe MSNBC didn't bury the story.

Hahaha! Ashcroft supported the Mujahedin-e-Khalq! Oh, that's rich! What a frigging nutjob.

Then there is Vice President Cheney.....

quote:
When he was CEO of Halliburton, Dick Cheney opposed the sanctions on Iraq. They got in the way of business. As Molly Ivins reported, Cheney's company, Halliburton, through a front, nevertheless managed to do a $30-million-plus deal with Iraq in 1998.

See? He can prove that sanctions are ineffective!
