Iraq / 9-11 Link?

On August 17, Edward Morrissey wrote in The Weekly Standard that the 9-11 Commission may have more to explain than just its failure to mention Able Danger. The Commission also failed to mention evidence of a possible connection between Iraq and terrorist activities against the United States.

Morrissey refers to a BBC and a Reuters article, both from March 1, 2001, that reported on the arrest in Germany of two Iraqis on suspicion of "carrying out missions for an Iraqi intelligence service in a number of German towns since the beginning of 2001." The arrests of these Iraqi agents occurred at the same time that key 9-11 planners, including Mohammed Atta were meeting in Germany.

Coincidence? Maybe, but consider an al-Watan al-Arabi report, as summarized in this Middle East Intelligence Bulletin:

Al-Watan al-Arabi (Paris) reports that two Iraqis were arrested in Germany, charged with spying for Baghdad. The arrests came in the wake of reports that Iraq was reorganizing the external branches of its intelligence service and that it had drawn up a plan to strike at US interests around the world through a network of alliances with extremist fundamentalist parties.

The most serious report contained information that Iraq and Osama bin Ladin were working together.

No, this is not proof that Iraq was involved in 9-11. However, it certainly does raise some questions: questions that need to be answered, including why the 9-11 Commission didn't have anything to say about this information in its final report.
