… acto falhado.

Wednesday, October 6th, 2004


“UNITED States defence secretary Donald Rumsfeld was trying desperately to backtrack yesterday, after declaring that he knew of no clear link between the al-Qaeda terror network and Saddam Hussein.

Mr Rumsfeld’s admission to the Council on Foreign Relations in New York on Monday night came only 24 hours before the US vice-president Dick Cheney was due to go head to head with his Democratic rival, senator John Edwards.

Mr Rumsfeld had at first refused to answer when he was asked to describe the connection between the Iraqi leader and al-Qaeda. But he then added: “To my knowledge, I have not seen any strong, hard evidence that links the two.”
