The report of the joint congressional inquiry into the suicide hijackings on Sept. 11, 2001, to be published Thursday, reveals U.S. intelligence had no evidence that the Iraqi regime of Saddam Hussein was involved in the attacks, or that it had supported al-Qaida, United Press International has learned.

"The report shows there is no link between Iraq and al-Qaida," said a government official who has seen the report.

Look! Over there! Photographs of Quday and Usay!

"The administration sold the connection (between Iraq and al-Qaida) to scare the pants off the American people and justify the war," said [Former Democratic Georgia Sen. Max] Cleland. "What you've seen here is the manipulation of intelligence for political ends."

I'm shocked! Shocked!
