Intelligence on Saddam Hussein's ties to Al-Qaeda

The Department of Defense Inspector General has released a redacted version of "Review of the Pre-Iraqi War Activities of the Office of the Under Secretary of Defense for Policy." This report is sharply critical of the intelligence that claimed there were ties between Hussein and Al-Qaeda. In fact it argues there was limited contact between the groups.

Don't want to read the whole report? Read a bit about the report and reactions from Vice President Cheney in this Washington Post article, "Hussein's Prewar ties to Al-Qaeda Discounted."
