al Qaeda and Saddam

Was there an Iraq/al Qaeda connection? If you are in favor of the war in Iraq, you probably think we don't have enough information to know. If you are opposed to the war in Iraq, you probably know with absolute certainty, that there could not possibly have been any links because the religious nuts of al Qaeda could never, ever, conceive of allying with the secular Saddam Hussein under any circumstances and never mind that several of these religious nuts spent their last night on earth at a strip bar, they are completely unable to make any concessions to the secular world.

It must be nice to have so much certainty, but I've always been in the "we don't really know" category. Now has made a pretty persuasive case for some high-level connections.
