Good overview of Saddam’s connection to terrorism and Al Qaeda in NRO by Deroy Murdock. The Bush Administration needs to do a better job of reminding people of these facts, among them:

“Coalition troops destroyed at least three terrorist training camps including a base near Baghdad called Salman Pak. It featured a passenger-jet fuselage where numerous Iraqi defectors reported that foreign terrorists were instructed how to hijack airliners with utensils. (The Bush administration should bus a few dozen foreign correspondents and their camera crews from the bar of Baghdad’s Palestine Hotel to Salman Pak for a guided tour. Network news footage of that ought to open a few eyes.)”
