...but he says there were Al Quaeda members in Baghdad.
Sounds like the "Rummy" has had too much rummy.
Actually both remarks were consistent, in their contexts. This is how the Bush administration works...making selected statements to selected audiences, that are technically correct (remember "it depends on your definition of "is"?) but intended to mislead.
Yes, I can see how that might be misconstrued to mean that he didn't know of any strong links between the two.
Then he leaves the meeting, and attempts to cloud the issue by saying that there were Al Quaeda members in Baghdad. Technically true, no doubt, just like there were Al Quaeda members in Newark, Boston, Portland, and probably Washington DC.
I also have to wonder if, supposing that there were al Qai'da members in Baghdad in 2002, they were there to work with Saddam's government or, in league with the Kurdish nationalists, against it.
