The media wouldn't know a Iraq-Al Qaeda connection if it smacked them in the fanny!

In this issue of Newsweek, this little tidbit:

Intel: Still No Connection

"Dec. 19, 2005 issue - Evidence validating claims by the Bush administration of a pre-war relationship between Saddam Hussein and Al Qaeda seems more elusive than ever. Counterterrorism officials familiar with some of the latest assessments of intel collected in Iraq, who asked to remain anonymous because of the sensitive subject matter, say that the more U.S. analysts pore through raw info, the less evidence they find of any significant connection between Saddam and Osama bin Laden's terror network.

Ok,.....let's play 20 questions with actually only one question....

"Who are the "anonymous spooks" who asked to remain anonymouse....or anony-rat, however, you want to look at it?"

At this point, short of video of Saddam driving Atta to Portland Airport, nothing anyone finds is going to get a fair treatment in the media - period. After all, they would have to admit that Bush was right and they were wrong, and so they might have to I say it? "Apologize" Perish the thought!

Fact is that evidence for the connection is so clear that it begs incredulity that anyone without an agenda could miss it. But miss it they have, and they will continue to do so, and just to make sure there are always traitors like these guys and gals to help them out.

Although there still may be hope....

"Following the invasion of Iraq, U.S. operatives collected millions of documents generated by Saddam's regime. An intel unit run by the Pentagon is in charge of analyzing the material—a cache, two leading GOP legislators recently alleged, so voluminous that it will take years to sort through. Last month Sen. Pat Roberts and Rep. Pete Hoekstra, chairmen of the Senate and House intelligence committees, suggested that one way to process the data more quickly would be for U.S. intelligence agencies to release large quantities of documentation to the public so people with certain skills (such as foreign-language or document-examining expertise) could help intel officials hunt for gems among heaps of slag. Most of the seized Iraqi material is unclassified, but current U.S. intel policy allows only people with security clearances to examine the material, which Roberts and Hoekstra claim "nearly guarantees that exploitation will take decades, if ever, to complete." A spokesman for Hoekstra said the congressman isn't concerned that making Iraqi documents public would either bolster or undermine the administration's arguments for war: "He just wants to know what they say." Judith Emmel, a spokeswoman for John Negroponte, said the intel czar's office was "carefully examining this very important proposal."

Hey if they are looking for someone who still has a clearance to 'help them out', I'm available.

I know, I'm not going to sit home all day waiting for the call.
