Another Coincidence?

Friday, 15 November 2002 12:00 AM

Let's understand this. The United Nations adopts Resolution #1441 last Friday, Nov. 8, basically ordering Iraq to comply – or else.

A mere four days later – out of the blue – Osama bin Laden's voice speaks to the world on an audiotape and threatens horrendous new terrorist attacks on Western interests if indeed we attack Iraq.

The Bush administration has told us for over a year that there is no known connection between Saddam and Osama. On the 9/11 attacks, Team Bush has adamantly denied any Iraqi connection – even though there

The Bush administration went out of its way a year ago to discredit reports of a link. Why? We do not know.

In fact, there is substantial evidence linking Saddam to terrorist attacks – including the 1993 first World Trade Center bombing. Yet the Clinton – and now Bush – intelligence agencies (both led by George Tenet) stubbornly refuse to even consider that Saddam uses Osama as a "cutout" to do his dirty work for him – without leaving a Baghdad return address.

So now we have, on the verge of Saddam's removal, these new threats – including one of a mysterious "spectacular" attack – coming

What does this tell us?

Well, we would be naïve to believe, during the past few months of overheated rhetoric coming from Team Bush about "shooting Saddam in the head," regime change, war and invasions, that Saddam hasn't been sitting in one of his presidential palaces plotting

Can't you just see him relaxing one evening with one of his mistresses, chomping on his favorite, personally chosen elkburger, watching a video of the torture of one of his enemies and conjuring up some horrendous attack on America

It is so obvious that this psychopathic murderer would not sit still while his international enemies move troops, planes and ships into position to remove him from power.

Do you think he would take that passively?

No!

He'd hop on the phone – or however he securely communicates with Osama over in Pakistan – and initiate a new plan to attack the United States and the U.N. nations that supported resolution #1441. Certainly Iraq, awash in oil cash, secretly funds al-Qaeda – just as it proudly pays the families of Palestinian suicide bombers.

The result of this plotting is yet to be seen. But please don't tell us anymore that Osama bin Laden and Saddam Hussein aren't Partners in Anti-Americanism.

The problem we have is that either our intelligence community is incompetent, corrupt – or prohibited for political reasons from telling us the truth about the Saddam-Osama link.

And until we, the American people, are told the truth about our enemies – and about our massive recent intelligence failures – we should not go into a war that is based on intelligence provided from those

We need to get to the root of our own intelligence problems before we do anything else.
