I have been saying since the primaries started that the subject of al Qaeda/Saddam ties was going to become very relevant in the general election. Seems the battle started tonight with jabs over the subject between Obama and McCain.
I had hoped Fred was going to be the nominee. However, McCain is actually going to be far more of a bulldog on this.
You see, John McCain sat in a NV prison for what was it 3 or 4 years only to come home and be told it wasn't worth it. He above all other politicians understands the importance of validity for our removal of Saddam. I guarantee you he believes Saddam was working at some level with al Qaeda. I predict he will make a real fight over this and not let the media get by with the "no ties" declaration as President Bush has.
So in case anyone from the campaign happens across this, contact me to advise on this issue. I can show you page and verse from the Iraq phase II intelligence report where the CIA, far from saying "no ties" in fact reaffirmed its' prewar conclusion that they were trying to work together.
