MEMRI and Instapundit report that a Kurdistan newspaper has published (on its first page) a 2002 letter from Saddam Hussein’s office, reaching out directly to al Qaeda’s No. 2, Ayman Zawahiri, about the possibility of attacks in Saudi Arabia. [h/t Mark Eichenlaub of the Regime of Terror blog]
Of course, I cannot vouch for its authenticity. If it’s legit, though, it would be an instance of Iraq collaborating with al Qaeda even after the 9/11 attacks. We’ll see.
