The new issue of the Weekly Standard carries two articles that are of special interest. In the first, Jonathan Schanzer reports on his jailhouse interview with Saddam Hussein’s liaison with Ansar al Islam. He in turn identifies one of his colleagues as “Saddam’s ambassador to al Qaeda.”
The operational details of the assistance provided by Iraqi intelligence to Ansar al Islam jibe with the evidence Laurie Mylroie traces from the 1993 World Trade Center bombing to Iraqi intelligence, but Schanzer confines himself to intimating Saddam Hussein’s link to al Qaeda.
In the second article Professor Peter Berkowitz interviews a cross section of prominent Israelis regarding the security fence and finds a surprising degree of consensus on the subject: “Good fences make good neighbors.” The article is long and interesting.
