9/11 Commission Report Available Online
If you're looking for almost 600 pages of reading material detailing how several government agencies (under two administrations) failed miserably and how another attack is extraordinarily likely if changes are not made, check it out! I hear it's a great beach read.__________________
On the Iraq/al-Qaida question, the AP says the "report provided new details on contacts between Iraq and al-Qaida, noting that Osama bin Laden began exploring a possible alliance in the early 1990s. In one new disclosure, the report says that an Iraqi delegation traveled to Afghanistan in July 1998 to meet with the ruling Taliban and with bin Laden."
"Intelligence indicates that Iraq may have offered bin Laden safe haven, but he declined after apparently deciding that Afghanistan was a better location. The report says although there were some 'friendly contacts' between Iraq and al-Qaida and a common hatred of the United States, none of these contacts 'ever developed into a collaborative relationship' and that Iraq was not involved in the Sept. 11 attacks."
