Donald Rumsfeld was asked point blank whether he knew if al Qaeda was involved with Saddam Hussein's Iraq. He said "yes". That is quite amazing since both British intelligence and American intelligence say exactly the opposite. There is NO EVIDENCE OR HINT OF EVIDENCE that Saddam Hussein has had any connection with al Qaeda at all. In fact, the part of northern Iraq where al Qaeda has had a presence is in the hands of the Kurdish rebels, his enemies. Hmmm, seems like old Rumsfeld has taken quite the lesson in gross fabrication from his boss, Sapling.
