9/11-Iraq link refuted 10 days after attack

The National Journal reported yesterday that ten days after the attacks on the World Trade Center, President Bush was told that the U.S. intelligence community had no evidence linking the Iraqi regime of Saddam Hussein to the September 11, 2001 attacks.

The Senate Intelligence Committee has asked the White House for the record of these briefings, and related CIA assessments. The Bush administration has refused to turn over these documents.

This intelligence information was was also distributed to Vice President Cheney, National Security Council adviser Condoleeza Rice, and other senior Bush administration policy makers.
