Front Page: No Link Between Hussein/al-Qaeda, AOL, Peace

  • There was no link between al-Qaeda and Saddam Hussein. This fact was confirmed by a Pentagon-sponsored study released yesterday. After a review of more than 600,000 Iraqi documents that have come into American hands since the March 2003 invasion, the Institute for Defense Analyses found “no smoking gun.” The study's conclusion is significant as the finding comes from a federally funded research institution, and senior administration officials have used the belief of the existence of ties between Hussein and the terrorist network run by Osama bin Laden as a rationale for the invasion.
  • AOL said today it was set to buy Bebo, the third most popular social networking website in the United States, valued at $850 million. AOL is set to integrate the networking site with its AOL Instant Messenger (AIM), jumpstarting AOL’s social networking strategy.
  • The presidents of Sudan and Chad signed a peace agreement intended to end border rebel attacks in a region that includes Darfur. The agreement will hopefully quell the use of Darfur by Chadian rebels as a base for launching incursions into Chad. Sudan has repeatedly accused Chad’s government of backing Darfur rebel groups. The signing was witnessed by UN Secretary General Ban Ki-Moon, following talks in Senegal.

Wow. Only, what, six years too late? *sigh* We knew there was no link between the two clear back before Bush was re-elected. It astounds me that they've taken this long to actually verify it in the Pentagon of all places. Shouldn't they have figured this out BEFORE we invaded Iraq?
