CNN.com - Leading Baathist caught in Iraq - Jan. 14, 2004: "U.S. officials said Wednesday that a document found when Saddam Hussein was captured warned supporters to be wary of cooperating with foreign jihadists.
The directive, which appears to have been written after Saddam was ousted in April, advises his supporters not to get too close to Islamic jihadists coming into Iraq from other countries, officials said.
The document would seem to contradict the assertion by some Bush administration officials about possible close cooperation between Saddam's government and al Qaeda.
But U.S. officials warned against making too much of the new evidence. "
Indeed. Apparently we're only supposed to make too much of evidence that supports the administration's claims. (Sorry, couldn't resist)
