As more and more of the documents captured with the fall of Iraq become available through translated, the left's case against the invasion becomes shakier and shakier.
How often was the cry of 'unilateral' heard as if the blessing of communist China was necessary for something to legitimate.

Gateway Pundit has a big roundup.
It seems the operational ties between Iraq and Al Qeada are also becoming clearer the more that gets translated.
A newly released prewar Iraqi document indicates that an official representative of Saddam Hussein's government met with Osama bin Laden in Sudan on February 19, 1995, after receiving approval from Saddam Hussein. Bin Laden asked that Iraq broadcast the lectures of Suleiman al Ouda, a radical Saudi preacher, and suggested "carrying out joint operations against foreign forces" in Saudi Arabia. According to the document, Saddam's presidency was informed of the details of the meeting on March 4, 1995, and Saddam agreed to dedicate a program for them on the radio. The document states that further "development of the relationship and cooperation between the two parties to be left according to what's open [in the future] based on dialogue and agreement on other ways of cooperation."Assuming the document is genuine, it has to be considered a rough day for lefties.
The final news item to give those on the left some nightmares (The ones where they and there media friends hide under the blankets and pretend not to notice the evidence) is continued evidence of Saddam' WMD including documents on his nuclear program andanother document possibly indicating Saddam's regime had WMD and were prepared to share them with terrorists. Although those on the left are disputing what the document says on the issue. Consider however Ray's credentials in this issue which he listed in response to a detractor.

1. This document is not NIV.
2. Because I am a former army officer with Gulf War and Kosovo experience and worked with ISG for a year with THESE documents.
3. The weapons inspectors can tell you what they found, not what Saddam was hiding. These documents indicate what Saddam really had.
Even though I supported the invasion on strictly 'getting rid of an evil murdering loon' grounds, it is good to see evidence coming out that will help those who took part.
