[I&A] 【整理】【In and Around News】萨达姆有罪吗?-1

提高英语听力能力 找对方法很重要!
The Intelligence committee of the United States senate declared that Saddam Hussein never gave support to Al Qaeda and he had no relationship with Al Qaeda in Iran Musab al-Zarqawi. Old news to many people perhaps, but in Washington it is still a very much live political issue because the members of Bush Administration including President himself have so often implied that such links did exist. A washington correspondent Justin Web reports.

Many many Americans believe when he was in power saddam Hussein was friendly with Al Qaeda. What the senate committee decided he wasn't and the intelligence comunity knew that he wasn't and told the president he wasn't. Democratic Senator Carl Levin said that the information had been suppressed.

The accurate prewar intelligence assessments didn't stop the administration from making many fault and misleading statements trying to link saddam hussein with Al Qaeda.

The difficulty with white house is that various senior members of bush team are on record in no uncertain terms suggesting links between Al Qaeda and Saddam. This was Collin Paul, the then Secretary of states, addressing the UN Securtity Council in the run up to the war.

Iraq today harbors a deadly terrorist network headed by Abu Musab al-Zarqawi, an associate collaborator of Osama Bin Laden. Zarqawi, returning to Afghanistan in 2000, oversaw a terrorist camp. One of the specialties of this camp is poisons. When our coalition outsted Taliban, the Zarqawi network helped establish another poison and explosive training center camp in northeastern Iraq.

In fact, according to the committee reports, Saddam not only didn't harbor al-Zarqawi, the Al Qaeda leader killed earlier this year by the US, but he even tried to arrest him. J.R.F, another democratic senator, spelled the doubt.

There was no credible information that Iraq was complicit in or had full knowledge of the September attack or any other Al Qaeda strike anywhere. The committee also found that Iraq did not provide chemical or biological weapons training or any material operational support to Al Qaeda prior to the War.

It's worth stressing that this report is not an attack on the intelligence community. It is an attack directly on administration for not saying what it knew to be true. Does any of this matter now politically? Does it reopen the wounds in a way that would damage Bush adminisration? Probably not. Those Americans who think the president lied will find themselves vendictated. Those who trust him are unlikely to change their mind this late in the game. The White house said this report was old news. Many american would agree, even if they wish the news was different.
