The Connection

There are conflicting reports on whether Colin Powell will present evidence linking Saddam Hussein to Al Qaeda.

Josh Marshall thinks such a link is "bogus" and a "dingbat" ploy on the part of the administration to try to justify its case against Iraq. It's nice to see liberals using a word popularized by Archie Bunker.

Stephen F. Hayes of the Weekly Standard reports an intra-administration fight over whether evidence linking Saddam to Osama should be presented. There is no dispute, however, whether evidence exists. Hayes cites this article by Jeffrey Goldberg in the New Yorker and this follow-up piece by Goldberg for providing compelling evidence of a connection between Iraq and Al Qaeda.
