Gitmo Investigator: Interrogators Were Tasked To Find Qaeda-Iraq Link

And McClatchy spoke to a top Guantanamo investigator, retired Army Lt. Col. Brittain Mallow, who said:

I'm aware of the fact that in late 2002, early 2003, that (the alleged al Qaida-Iraq link) was an interest on the intelligence side. That was something they were tasked to look at.

Of course, no evidence of any operational links between al Qaeda and Iraq has been found. But we're finding plenty of evidence that the Bushies used torture to try to find such evidence.

Progress overnight on deployment of new commenting system. We hope to move into a short beta-testing phase shortly.
