Saddam and Terrorism: Emerging Insights from Captured Iraqi Documents, Volume 1

Published September 2007

A report by the United States Joint Forces Command found that there was no direct link between al Qaeda and Saddam Hussein. It was reportedly removed from the Pentagon's website and not posted as planned to the Joint Forces Command website on March 12, 2008, though Joint Forces stated that they would send the report to those requesting it.

The report states, "This study found no "smoking gun" (i.e., direct connection) between Saddam's Iraq and al Qaeda." This report is a redacted, summarized form of a January 2007 report.
