Israeli intelligence: Iraq financed attacks

Iraq recruited Saudi billionaire fugitive Osama Bin Laden and his Islamic allies to carry out the suicide attacks around the United States, according to Israeli intelligence.

Israeli officials and intelligence analysts said the suicide hijackings that downed the World Trade Center and destroyed parts of the Pentagon was too large an operation for any one group. The analysts said the operation was also too big even for a coalition of Islamic terrorists headed by Saudi billionaire fugitive Osama Bin Laden.

I hate to come off like a know it all, but, I thought, right from the beginning that this - the money flow, at least - sounded like Saddam.

And the Jerusalem Post exresses outright glee at the delicious possibility of perhaps being "allowed" to go to war against Iraq alongside the US.

It does have Iraqi fingerprints all over it, doesn't it?

I am beginning to think we are being led around like a bull with a ring in its nose. There is no easy way out of the cesspit of Middle Eastern politics. My first instinct after Tuesday was to invade Afghanistan and stomp them into the ground. Now I wonder if that was the whole idea behind the attack. Are we being played for stupid?

There is no question we are at war. But with whom? We had better not jump into any action without looking ahead at least 10 moves. This is not a 2-party game.
