No Connection Right?

Camp Saddam
What we've learned about Iraq's terrorist training camps.

Stephen F. Hayes - Weekly Standard
REPRESENTATIVE John Murtha, a Democrat from Pennsylvania, appeared on NBC's Meet the Press on Sunday, March 19, to evaluate the war in Iraq on its third anniversary. Murtha, a decorated veteran and longtime hawk, has become a leading spokesman for his party on the war. And on the show, he spoke of what "probably worries me the most" about the U.S. effort in Iraq. The war, said Murtha, is a diversion from the global war on terror.

"There was no terrorism in Iraq before we went there," said Murtha. "None. There was no connection with al Qaeda, there was no connection with, with terrorism in Iraq itself." This is now the conventional wisdom on Iraq and terrorism. It is wrong.

A new study from the Joint Forces Command in Norfolk, Virginia, paints quite a different picture. According to captured documents cited in the study and first reported in THE WEEKLY STANDARD in January, the former Iraqi regime was training non-Iraqi Arabs in terrorist techniques.

Could you send me the email address you would like me to use when contacting you. I've created a new email address for the Canadian Heroes blogroll. From now on, please send all mail to In this way I'll be able to do mass mailings to Canadian Heroes without having to sift through all the other addresses I have.

As well, keep sending in posts that have military themes. I'll keep posting them, and eventually we should be able to build a good number of regular visitors looking for posts on military matters.

I'm also planning some initiatives; some simple yet powerful things we can do as a group to show support for the boys and girls we honor. I'll be in touch about that in a few days.

Thank you once again for the support; and suggestions. I welcome all comments.
