Tidbits from The 9/11 Commission Report, Part II

Ths Power Line guys continue to mine the report for goodies.  Here's another one:

National-security adviser Sandy Berger suggested that the U.S. send just one U-2 flight, but the report says Clarke worried that even then, Pakistan's intelligence service would warn bin Laden that the U.S. was preparing for a bombing campaign. "Armed with that knowledge, old wily Usama will likely boogie to Baghdad," Clarke wrote in a February 11, 1999 e-mail to Berger. The report says that another National Security Council staffer also warned that "Saddam Hussein wanted bin Laden in Baghdad."

Wait a minute.  I thought there were no connections between bin Laden and Hussein.  I'm so confused . . . .
