Do you remember the right wing of the blogosphere going nuts over soon to be released documents linking Saddam to terror? Do you remember their shrill cries of 'we told you so'? Do you?
Well it seems the documents, like the case for war in the first place are a load of bunk.
The first surprising thing we find in the documents, which are available here through the U.S. Army Foreign Military Studies Office’s Joint Reserve Intelligence Center, is that they are not necessarily from, or even about, Iraq…Anybody surprised? We're not.
Whether intentional or not, the conflation and confusion of materials has been more than sufficient to convince bloggers on the political right that there were, as Bush officials insisted, operational links between Saddam’s Iraq and al-Qaida.
