Ahmed Hikmat Shakir

We've all heard a lot of smoking gun bedtime stories. But here's one that has got my attention and I daresay should be all the proof anyone might possibly need proving a link between Iraq and Al Qaeda.

Check out this story over at the WSJ. And this column at the NRO.

Don't forget this name. He's got to be the most wanted criminal on the planet.

Did you stick your fingers in your ears and hum after you typed that?

Go read the book. Trust me. Stephen Hayes has documented his information pretty well.

The whole first chapter is about Ahmed Hikmat Shamir and what the CIA knows about him. Educate yourself, my friend.

Well, I *did* say to remember his name. I guess he turns out to be the Weakest Link. So much for that clue.
