The New Iraqi Tie To

The New Iraqi Tie To Bin Laden: In response to questions today C. Powell stated that a message has surfaced believed to be Osama bin Laden claiming a "partnership with Iraq." Source and credibility are still fuzzy, but here are two very recent takes on the story: the Washington Post and CNN Europe.

UPDATE--Just In From CNN: Al Jazeera now says it does have a statement from Osama bin Laden, which it intends to air later today. In the statement, OBL supposedly claims "partnership" with Iraq and asks that Muslims "show support for Iraq." It will be interesting to see how this adds to the mix ...

UPDATE: Al Jazeera will air the tape (it is an audio, not video tape) at or near 3 PM EST today.

UPDATE 2:53 PM EST: And apparently now they're going to wait ...

UPDATE 2:57 PM EST: And now they're back on for 3 EST ...
