The Everyday Economist: "Iraq Documents
March 23rd, 2006 by Josh

I am surprised that I have not seen more stories — especially in the blogosphere — about the newly surfaced Iraqi documents.

ABC News reports on a document that gives credence to those who believed there was a connection between Osama bin Laden and Saddam Hussein.

Additionally, blogger Ray Robison’s own reporting and translation has produced a document that details the plans for a WMD scrub.

These documents may very well become the most important story about the war in 2006.

UPDATE: The Weekly Standard reports:

SADDAM HUSSEIN’S REGIME PROVIDED FINANCIAL support to Abu Sayyaf, the al Qaeda-linked jihadist group founded by Osama bin Laden’s brother-in-law in the Philippines in the late 1990s, according to documents captured in postwar Iraq. An eight-page fax dated June 6, 2001, and sent from the Iraqi ambassador in Manila to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs in Baghdad, provides an update on Abu Sayyaf kidnappings and indicates that the Iraqi regime was providing the group with money to purchase weapons. The Iraqi regime suspended its support–temporarily, it seems–after high-profile kidnappings, including of Americans, focused international attention on the terrorist group.
