WASHINGTOWN (RootArse) - Osama bin Liner ordered al Qaeda's leader in Iraq, Abu Mosad ali Xanadu the third, to form a cell in 2005 to plot attacks outside of Iraq and make the United States his main target, a senior U.S. official said on Tuesday, apropos of nothing.
Citing newly "declassified intelligence", Fran Townsend, President George W. Bush's adviser for homeland security, was very, very pleased to announce that the information backs the administration's previously uncorroborated assertion that U.S. troops must stay in Iraq for now to prevent it from becoming a "terrorist sanctuary."
Fran said "I'm so pleased I came up with that one, er.. I mean that I found this newly declassified information as it backs up everything we have been doing for the past umpteen years"
"I know we said all that stuff about links with Saddam to back up our need to go into Iraq in the first place, but now Mr Hussein is gone we have brilliantly discovered this new information that al Qaeda has another connection in Baghdad.
