The Saddam Hussein/Terrorism Connection

Liberals like to chant that there is no connection between Saddam Hussein and international terrorism. Therefore we have no reason to be in Iraq waging a war against terrorism. These people don't bother to check out the facts and are only blindly parroting the current phrases that are considered cool among their liberal friends. Here are just a few of Saddam's actions which illustrate that his regime has had a long standing connection with international terrorism.

  • Made cash payments to the families of Palestinian suicide bombers.
  • Provided terror scholarships that led to 223 murders, including 12 American deaths.
  • Provided safe haven to the Palestinian Liberation Front, Arab Liberation Front, Mujahedin-e-Khalq, and Abu Nidal Organization, which supplied Libyan terrorists with bomb-making materials that brought down Pan Am Flight 103 in 1988, killing 189 Americans.
  • Provided a safe house for Abdul Rahman, co-conspirator of Ramzi Yousef, who bombed the World Trade Center in 1993 and came to the United States on an Iraqi passport; Rahman constructed the bomb used during the attack.
  • Sent an ambassador, as far back as 1994, to Turkey to meet with al-Qaeda operatives.
  • Reached an understanding, according to a 1998 indictment by the Clinton Administration, that al Qaeda and Iraq would work cooperatively on weapons development.
  • Had an Iraqi emissary escort two of the Sept. 11 hijackers in early 2000 to a meeting with al-Qaeda planners in Malaysia
  • Provided medical treatment in Iraq after the Taliban fell, for al-Qaeda terrorist Abu Musab Zarqawi.
  • Withdrew huge sums of money just before the Coalition’s attack on Baghdad in March 2003 to fund terrorist attacks inside Iraq.
