Neo-Con Mouthpieces Still Clinging to Osama-Saddam Link
Neo-Con mouthpiece government shills Sean Hannity and Newsmax simply don't know when to stop. They are still claiming that Osama bin Laden met with Saddam Hussein, this time dragging out Saddam's former lieutenant, Gen. Georges Sada, who related a supposed rendezvous between the two in the mid-80's.
The problem with this of course is that Donald Rumsfeld was also meeting with Saddam Hussein at almost exactly the same time to sell him the chemical and biological weapons that were later used as an excuse to invade.
First of all, how can we believe anything that these people say? From Saddam's invading biological drones that were set to reign down terror on US cities, to biological weapons trucks that turned out to be for blowing up weather balloons, to WMD stockpile bunkers that turned out to be bakeries. Congenital liars don't tend to deserve to be afforded much credibility.
Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me.
From the Newsmax piece,
"I can make sure one thing - I know - I have seen by my eyes. It was in '84, '85, Osama bin Laden himself was coming to Iraqi air force headquarters."
Gen. Sada explained: "At that time he was looking for contracts to build air fields in Iraq."
Hmmm, now that reminds me of another bloodthirsty warmonger who was exchanging contracts with Saddam at the same time.
In addition, the fact that Osama bin Laden was a willing client of the CIA and the US government throughout the 1980's seems to have slipped under Hannity's radar.
Former FBI executive Ted L. Gunderson, confirmed that a clean shaven Osama bin Laden met with US government officials to arrange U.S. weapons assistance for Afghan rebels fighting Soviet invasion troops.
The US government's support of Bin Laden's MAK during the Soviet invasion is admitted historical fact.
So when the US government meets with bin Laden that's OK, but when Saddam does it, even if Saddam is also buddies with the US at the time, then that's bad!
Sada also claims that Saddam shipped his WMD out to Syria immediately before the US invasion in March 2003, an assertion that has become conspicuous for one reason, the absolute dearth of any credible evidence to support it.
Sada, amidst his noble effort to toady up to the US government to avoid prosecution, is also selling a book.
