“In his presentation to the UN Security Council on February 5 [2003], Secretary of State Colin Powell failed to produce any compelling proof that Baghdad was even remotely connected to the 9/11 attacks. Powell pointed to a suspected al Qaeda terror camp located near Kurdish-held northern Iraq. Contending that the facility trained al Qaeda operatives to carry out attacks with explosives and poisons, Powell insisted that there was a ‘sinister nexus between Iraq and the al Qaeda terror network.’ ”
