“As recently as August 21, 2006, [President] Mr. Bush said that Saddam Hussein ‘had relations with [Abu Musab al-] Zarkawi,’ the late leader of al Qaeda in Iraq, killed on June 7 [2006]. But a CIA report completed in October 2005, and released by the Senate Intelligence Committee September 8 [2005], concluded that Hussein’s government ‘did not have a relationship with, harbor or even turn a blind eye toward Zarkawi and his associates.’ ”
