Saddam e Osama

O Instapundit refere dois artigos de 1999 que apontavam para ligações entre Saddam Hussein e Osama Bin Laden. Recordo que, na altura, Bill Clinton era o Presidente dos EUA.


Iraqi President Saddam Hussein has offered asylum to bin Laden, who openly supports Iraq against the Western powers.

No Guardian:

The key meeting took place in the Afghan mountains near Kandahar in late December. The Iraqi delegation was led by Farouk Hijazi, Baghdad's ambassador in Turkey and one of Saddam's most powerful secret policemen, who is thought to have offered Bin Laden asylum in Iraq. . . .

Analysts believe that Mr Hijazi offered Mr bin Laden asylum in Iraq, most likely in return for co-operation in launching attacks on US and Saudi targets. Iraqi agents are believed to have made a similar offer to the Saudi maverick leader in the early 1990s when he was based in Sudan.
