Bush administration documents, dated September 21, 2001, reveal that the CIA refuted any past or present connection between al Qaeda and Saddam in the wake of 9/11. The administration did not and will not release these documents to the Senate Intelligence Committee. Why not?
#1) It depends on which activities we are refering to... and thats based on a theory.
Secular islamic states work with religously fundementalist terrorist groups all the time just take a look at syria. So the theory used to dismiss some of the contacts. And these are also the guys who got tons of things wrong before the infamous WMD issue.
#2) Their are more leaks out of the senate committee then out of the CIA
So *IF* their is an active operation right now where peoples lives could be in jeopardy he is trying to minimize the potential of leaks.
Answering these questions in a -reasonable- way aint hard
