Bob Kerrey Calls New Information a "very significant set of facts."

In a recent interview with The New York Sun , former Democratic Nebraska senator and 9-11 commissioner Bob Kerrey said that recently declassified documents show that Saddam Hussein was "a significant enemy of the United States."

One document in particular detailed a February 19, 1995 meeting between an Iraqi official and Osama bin Laden, where bin Laden suggested "carrying out joint operations against foreign forces" in Saudi Arabia. Two weeks later, when Saddam Hussein was briefed on the meeting, he agreed to the request of bin Laden to broadcast sermons of the radical imam, Suleiman al Ouda.

While Kerrey pointed out that these documents do not prove that Saddam Hussein played a direct role in the 9-11 attacks, he did say, "This is a very significant set of facts… This presents facts should not be used to tie Saddam to attacks on September 11. It does tie him into a circle that meant to damage the United States."

I am anxiously awaiting every major news outlet to report that the 9-11 Commission was mistaken when it concluded in 2004 that there was no operational tie between Iraq and Al Qaeda.
