Why is this news today?

Today's news: Saddam had no ties to al-Qaeda, according to declassified pentagon report.

Captured Iraqi documents and intelligence interrogations of Saddam Hussein and
two former aides "all confirmed" that Hussein's regime was not directly cooperating with al-Qaeda before the U.S. invasion of Iraq, according to a declassified Defense Department report released yesterday.

VP reasserts al-Qaeda links to Saddam.
WASHINGTON - Vice President Dick Cheney repeated his assertions of al-Qaida
links to Saddam Hussein’s Iraq on Thursday as the Defense Department released a
report citing more evidence that the prewar government did not cooperate with
the terrorist group.

Aaargh! THERE WAS NO LINK! That was clearly proven in 2003, prior to the invasion of Iraq.
Look, I knew this was pure BS back then. I have a long memory. When Iraq invaded Kuwait back in 1991, Osama offered to take Saddam out with his Mujihadeen fighters from Afghanistan. Bin Laden issued several fatwas that called for the assassination of Saddam as a "false muslim". There simply was no way that Bin Laden would co-operate with the hated secularist Saddam regime. There was no way that Saddam would work with someone who was trying to kill him.
