Released Saddam Papers Hint at Links to Al-Qaeda, Chemical Weapons

From Released Saddam Papers Hint at Links to Al-Qaeda, Chemical Weapons:

Newly released documents seized in Iraq immediately after the American invasion in 2003 point to the presence of al-Qaeda members in the country before the war and moves to hide traces of “chemical or biological materials” from UN weapons inspectors.

An Iraqi intelligence report dated September 15, 2001 – four days after the attacks on America – says bin Laden and the Taliban were in contact with Iraq and al-Qaeda members had visited the country.

In one tape recording, an official named as Comrade Husayn discusses chemical weapons with Saddam: “We have not told them that we used it on Iran, nor have we told them about the size or kind of chemical weapons that we produced, and we have not told them the truth about the imported material.”
