Hayes - Saddam and al Qaeda

I have always wished I had a single-link resource to refer to whenever I heard someone say "Iraq had nothing to do with al Qaeda." I think at least some of these people might educate themselves on the issue if the information was put right in front of them. So because Stephen Hayes of the Weekly Standard is the preeminent journalist on the matter of "The Connection" between Saddam Hussein and al Qaeda, I started out to assemble a list of links to his articles that I had posted at this blog over the last three years. The project got a bit more ambitious than that in the end, but what results is, I think, a good primer for the uninitiated or those still in denial, and a useful reference for...well, me.

For those unfamiliar with Hayes' work, I have marked with a (***) several articles that I felt would give a good overview or summary of the data, since it's tough for anyone to read it all. I would also suggest reading on this list from the bottom up, (oldest first) to get a better feel for the progression and accumulation of information over time. Links to many other related articles appear at the end of the post.

Another good starting point for an understanding of the connection would be Hayes' book; The Connection: How al Qaeda's Collaboration with Saddam Hussein Has Endangered America
