But, 'tedious' is about as polite as I can water down criticism of half-formed arguments. Tighten up your facts and you'll be more convincing.
This documents the composition of the Iraqi "insurgents" here into 7 groups, all of whom have become militant since we knocked out Saddam: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Iraqi_insu ... Insurgency
I'm quoting the actual Pentagon report:
Maybe you don't believe the report?
"The agent reports (Extract 25) that The Army of Muhammad is working with Osama bin Laden.
A later memorandum from the same collection to the Director of the IIS reports that the Army of Muhammad is endeavoring to receive assistance [from Iraq] to implement its objectives
, and that the local IIS station has been told to deal with them in accordance with priorities previously established. The IIS agent goes on to inform the Director that “this organization is an offshoot of bin Laden
, but that their objectives are similar but with different names that can be a way of camouflaging the organization.”
line from page 42: "Saddam supported groups that either associated directly with al Qaeda (such as the Egyptian Islamic Jihad, led at one time by bin Laden's deputy, Ayman al Zawahiri) or that generally shared al Qaeda's stated goals and objectives."
I am going to assume all the groups mentioned in this report want Americans DEAD.http://a.abcnews.com/images/pdf/Pentagon_Report_V1.pdf
Pretty tight, not as tight as the evidence against OJ I guess, but it still didn't matter did it.
