Default Re: The Rise of the Neocons

Eli missed the point about Al Quaeda being unlikely to cooperate with Saddam Hussein. Cooperation wasn’t unlikely for theological reasons, but because Al Quaeda and Hussein were specifically rivals in the project of building an international Muslim/Arab empire (which each intended to organize and head). After Saddam was deposed and executed, his followers were struggling to regain control of Iraq, and an Iraqi empire was no longer a project. Under those circumstances the objection to cooperation disappears.
