On September 16, 2002, researchers from the ‘Iraqi intelligence cell’ that had been created by Undersecretary of Defense Douglas Feith, said: “Saddam Hussein’s regime had a far more extensive relationship with Osama bin Ladan and al-Qaeda than the CIA acknowledged. …The Feith team reported that Saddam’s intelligence service had played a ‘facilitation’ role in the September 11 attacks. An Iraqi intelligence agent, the briefing said, had ordered funds disbursed to one of the hijackers. If that was not a reason for war, what would be?”
