Saddam ran numerous Islamic terrorists training camps.

I want to see how the NYT spins this story. It seems there are mountains of documents waiting for translation. I would bet that the French, Germans and Russians don't want any of the remaining documents translated.

THE FORMER IRAQI REGIME OF Saddam Hussein trained thousands of radical Islamic terrorists from the region at camps in Iraq over the four years immediately preceding the U.S. invasion, according to documents and photographs recovered by the U.S. military in postwar Iraq. The existence and character of these documents has been confirmed to THE WEEKLY STANDARD by eleven U.S. government officials.

The secret training took place primarily at three camps--in Samarra, Ramadi, and Salman Pak--and was directed by elite Iraqi military units.

But, but Saddam was a secular dictator, he had no ties to Islamic terrorists.

Yea, just keep telling yourself that if it makes you feel better.

This is fantastic. Bush is such a cool customer, sitting on this explosive stuff until its time to use it. I expect to see lots more released before the 2006 elections. Then in time for 2008, Syria will finally hand over the WMDs. Almost makes me feel sorry for the Dem's. NOT.

Who was the source of this information? Ahmad Chalabi?
