The Telegraph is reporting that
Saddam Hussein is responsible for the death of Palestinian terrorist Abu Nidal in Baghdad. The report says that Hussein was enraged that Nidal would not train al-Qaeda fighters in northern Iraq to attack the United States.
This report raises some very difficult questions. We know that al-Qaeda is in northern Iraq and have created training camps in the region. If Saddam is in collusion with al-Qaeda, and working towards attacks against US interests, that would be more than enough justification for an attack against Iraq. If Saddam is willing to risk working with al-Qaeda and helping them train, there’s a good chance that he would give them full access to his collection of weapons of mass destruction. A WMD in the hands of al-Qaeda is simply unacceptable for the interests of world peace. It is clear that Hussein is a clear and present danger, and must be eliminated as soon as possible, with or without the support of other nations.
