Okay, thanks. Confused…anyhoo, this seems to be the key passage from Fang’s link to the DoState’s site (regarding Iraq, not Iran):
Iraq provided bases to several terrorist groups including the Mujahedin-e-Khalq (MEK), the Kurdistan Workers’ Party (PKK), the Palestine Liberation Front (PLF), and the Abu Nidal organization (ANO). In 2001, the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine (PFLP) raised its profile in the West Bank and Gaza Strip by carrying out successful terrorist attacks against Israeli targets. In recognition of the PFLP’s growing role, an Iraqi Vice President met with former PFLP Secretary General Habbash in Baghdad in January 2001 and expressed continued Iraqi support for the intifadah. Also, in mid-September, a senior delegation from the PFLP met with an Iraqi Deputy Prime Minister. Baghdad also continued to host other Palestinian rejectionist groups, including the Arab Liberation Front, and the 15 May Organization.
Perhaps most significant is the apparent meetings between an Iraqi VP and the PFLP 18 months ago in which support was expressed – quite how, it’s not said – and the second meeting, presumably, in the aftermath of 9/11. Who didn’t meet at that point …
Assuming the reports creditable, Iraq met with the PFLP twice between 18-12 months go. But that’s all it says – it’s predominately passed tense and speculative.
Look, if terrorist links exist, I think it’s important. Most especially if that link is to a-Q. But the contents of this document, IMHO, do not say that and the document doesn’t contribute to a justification for invasion.
Did I miss something again ?
