Another Small Link

Here’s yet another sign that Iraq and al Qaeda would never have anything to do with each other.

U.S. forces operating in the so-called Sunni Triangle—the region of Iraq most loyal to captured former dictator Saddam Hussein—found a significant weapons cache that included al Qaeda literature and videotapes, the U.S. military said Tuesday.

Members of Task Force Ironhorse 2nd Infantry’s Arrowhead Brigade discovered the material Monday morning at a site in Samarra, about 65 miles north-northwest of Baghdad. Some of the items were found hidden in a false wall, the military said.

The troops also found a British-made body armor plate with a bullet hole. U.S. Central Command said it was an indication that insurgents were testing the ceramic plate’s ability to withstand expended anti-personnel ammunition.

“Nothing that happened today (or in the past 9 months) has made us ONE BIT safer in our post-9/11 world. Saddam was never a threat to our national security.”—Michael Moore

Well boys, we’ll just see about that, won’t we?
