Every now and then it is worthwhile to review the facts about the links between Saddam and various terror groups. This one looks at Iraq and Abu Nidal.
It is especially important to repeat the facts because the conventional wisdom holds that such ties were either non-existent or trivial. Unfortunately, the CW was given a powerful boost by the 9-11 Commission Report. Joscelyn makes this telling comment:
The 9/11 Commission was either unaware or ignored all of these reports, as they are not even mentioned in the Commission's much-heralded report.That's one way to get around contrary evidence, just ignore it.
