The Iraq-al Qaeda connection, 1998

Laurie Mylroie has alerted us to this timely preview of the article by Stephen Hayes in the forthcoming Weekly Standard: “The Clinton view of Iraq-al Qaeda ties.”
Mylroie prefaces her distribution of the article with this note: “On August 5, 1998, Iraq declared ‘suspension day,’ that is the suspension of UN weapons inspections. The top leadership issued a statement that day demanding the lifting of sanctions, reiterating earlier threats, and asserting, ‘The leadership and people of Iraq cannot stand the continuation of this situation.’ Two days later the US embassies in Kenya and Tanzania were bombed nearly simultaneously.”
