Saddam Was Training Terrorists

According to a piece by Stephen Hayes in the Weekly Standard, from 1999 to 2002 8,000 terrorists, mostly from northern Africa were trained at three camps in Iraq. This information has come to light from captured documents in the possession of American intelligence agencies. Hayes claims that the content and existence of these documents has been confirmed by eleven government officials.

As those who have opposed the war have said again and again, there is no evidence that Saddam had any involvement in the 9/11 attacks, but this seems clear proof that he was a significant player in training and supporting world Islamic terrorism. His hands were not clean.
