WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The commission investigating the Sept. 11 attacks has been told "a very prominent member" of al Qaeda served as an officer in Saddam Hussein's militia, a panel member said on Sunday.


Republican commissioner John Lehman told NBC's "Meet the Press" program that the new intelligence, if proven true, buttresses claims by the Bush administration of ties between Iraq and the militant network believed responsible for the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks on America.


"We are now in the process of getting this latest intelligence," Lehman said.


Commission Chairman Thomas Kean urged the administration to make any such information available to the panel quickly.


"Obviously, if there is any information (that) has to do with the subject of the report, we need it, and we need it pretty fast," Kean said on ABC's "This Week" program. "We'll ask for it and see."


He said the final report would be modified to take any new intelligence into account.


Lehman said the information, contained in "captured documents," was obtained after the commission report was written that stated there was no evidence of a "collaborative relationship" between Iraq and al Qaeda.


"Some of these documents indicate that (there was) at least one officer of Saddam's Fedayeen, a lieutenant colonel, who was a very prominent member of al Qaeda," Lehman said.

What took them so long to 'find' these documents? Did they have to wait for the ink to dry?

But were they in Florida with the governments permission? Then why automatically assume they had it in Iraq? Just because they had people there doesn't mean official government sanction..

Let's go ahead and liberate Florida...it seems to have worked in Iraq....

Too many people on both sides of the spectrum have fallen into this mentality that a full one half of the country are the enemy for having different beliefs...in a country based on freedom of expression. It is this infighting that allows the focus to be taken away from "we the people" being able to watch, and have control over government corruption and ineptitude that is running rampant in our leadership.

People should be working towards fixing problems, not creating them.

Fluffy, if Florida is liberated, will that mean that they will be able to add up votes correctly during the next election?  whistling2.gif

I would guess that depends on who is running for president...
