Eat At Joes

Just a regular Joe who is angry that the USA, the country he loves, is being corrupted and damaged from within and trying to tell his fellow Americans the other half of the story that they don’t get on the TV News.

Recently Declassified Documents Show No Link Between Iraq and al Qaeda

Recently declassified documents further support the fact that prior to the war Intelligence Agencies knew there was no cooperative relationship between Saddam’s Iraq and al Qaeda. Sen. Carl Levin, Democrat from Michigan, requested that the documents be declassified so that American citizens could know what the Bush Administration knew in the run up to the Iraq War. For instance on October 7, 2002 President Bush asserted that "Iraq has trained al Qaeda members in bomb-making and poisons and deadly gases." However this was known to be false at the time we now learn. Bush officials claimed that one of the 9/11 terrorists had met with Iraqi officials, but this too was known to be highly unlikely at the time the claims were being made by the Bush Administration. It has taken over a year for the documents to be declassified from the time that Senator Levin requested it in April of 2004. Some would question whether the Bush Administration delayed the declassifying of them until after the 2004 election on purpose in order to prevent the American people from learning what Bush and his administration knew about these facts. Read an article on this here. Do not expect ABC, NBC, CBS, CNN (currently under the thumb of the Bush White House) or Fox News (working for the Bush White House) to report this to you. At least not in a balanced and impartial manner.
