Saddam and al-Qaeda
Back in 1999 The Guardian was writing about it. Now Iraqi Prime Minister Iyad Allawi states in an interview,
Allawi: No. I believe very strongly that Saddam had relations with al-Qaida. And these relations started in Sudan. We know Saddam had relationships with a lot of terrorists and international terrorism. Now, whether he is directly connected to the September — atrocities or not, I can’t — vouch for this. But definitely I know he has connections with extremism and terrorists.
