Thanks, Mr. Barone

Laurie Mylroie notes that Michael Barone had some very kind remarks about me and CQ yesterday and pointed his US News & World Report back to my two posts on the Iraqi Air Force memo and the implications of its timing. As Mr. Barone states, we still don't know whether Iraq had any connection to the 9/11 attacks, but the memo and the surrounding context of the 9/11 plot suggests that some may exist:

Ed Morrissey of Captain's Quarters makes his living as manager of a call center. But he also blogs brilliantly and thoroughly. Those who insist that there could never have been a collaboration between the Saddam Hussein regime and al Qaeda on 9/11 need to read Ed's following blog entry, in full. It doesn't prove the case, or claim to, but it makes very interesting reading.

I am always amazed at those who claim, with absolute certitude, that we know that Saddam's regime had nothing to do with 9/11. We don't know that. We don't know either, with any certainty, that Saddam did collaborate on 9/11, but we know that he had motive and opportunity, and we know (read Ed's post) that there is some evidence of collaboration. Not conclusive, but evidence. Read.

For anyone coming to CQ for the first time through Barone's Blog, welcome.
