British journalist Con “Coughlin and The Telegraph kept pushing the story [published on December 14, 2003, regarding an Iraqi document linking Saddam Hussein and al Qaeda] forward, adding another disclosure in a companion piece that [interim Iraqi government official Iyad] Allawi had ‘said the document was genuine. ‘We are uncovering evidence all the time of Saddam’s involvement with al-Qaeda,’ Mr. Allawi said. ‘But this is the most compelling piece of evidence that we have found so far. It shows that not only did Saddam have contacts with al-Qaeda, he had contact with those responsible for the September 11 attacks.’ ”
