I ran across a link to this blog at Pajamas Media’s Richard Miniter interview with a man he calls “the possible missing link between Saddam Hussein and al Qaeda.” The comments are as interesting as the interview itself; among them was a link to a blog I’d not seen before: Regime of Terror. This blog has a most interesting post on Congressman Chris Carney (D-PA 10), dating from December:
It turns out that Carney was a Senior Terrorism and Intelligence Advisor at the Pentagon and is considered to be knowledgeable about Saddam’s links to al Qaeda. He’s also in the Navy Reserves.
The eventual outcome of his knowledge and experience? In the opinion of Regime of Terror:
His views on the subject are a stark contrast to many in his party, particularly Senator Carl Levin, who has long expressed his belief that any link between Saddam Hussein’s regime and al Qaeda was a manufacture of the Bush administration. Carney’s comments and experience on the issue may even put him in the cross-hairs of Sen. Levin’s reported investigation into the matter in the coming months. What did Congressman Carney say? What does he know?

I suggest a good long look at Regime of Terror. Follow the links in this particular post, as it’s obvious the information Congressman Carney details for us has been out there and has been discussed every whichway, and in detail.
Here is the main index page, with a listing of previous posts. Juicy stuff.
Meanwhile, it would appear that Representative Carney is an anachronism. He seems to be a return to the old-style Democrat – you know, the ones your father voted for.
