The “good” Senator Kerry – Bob – now president of The New School, acknowledges the connection between Saddam and Al-Qaeda:

In an interview yesterday, the current president of the New School University, Bob Kerrey, was careful to say that new documents translated last night by ABC News did not prove Saddam Hussein played a role in any way in plotting the attacks of September 11, 2001.

Nonetheless, the former senator from Nebraska said that the new document shows that “Saddam was a significant enemy of the United States.” Mr. Kerrey said he believed America’s understanding of the deposed tyrant’s relationship with Al Qaeda would become much deeper as more captured Iraqi documents and audiotapes are disclosed.

It should be noted that the Bush Administration also never claimed Saddam Hussein played a role in attacks of September 11.

Prepare for Kerry to be pilloried by liberals, or given the silent treatment.
