Nine-Eleven Commission

Panel holding final hearing

The commission investigating the September eleventh attacks says there's "no credible evidence" of a link between Iraq and al-Qaida in attacks against the U-S.  It does say that Osama bin Laden met with a top Iraqi official in 1994 and asked for space for training camps and help in getting weapons. The report says the overture to Saddam Hussein occurred even though bin Laden opposed the Iraqi leader's secular regime.

Research and interviews by the commission's staff found that "Iraq apparently never responded." The report also said that two senior bin Laden associates have adamantly denied there were any ties between al-Qaida and Iraq.

The report was released as the commission began its final two-day hearing. It plans to release its final report late next month.
