"Iraq was indeed involved in those assaults. There is considerable information to that effect, described in this piece and elsewhere. They include Iraqi documents discovered by U.S. forces in Baghdad that U.S. officials have not made public".
MATTHEWS: But in terms of 9/11, thereís no connection, or is there Ė between Iraq and 9/11?
RUMSFELD: Itís too complex a subject for me to answer yes or no. The Ė George Tenet has testified publicly and privately on that subject before Congress and that is the official position of the United States.
MATTHEWS: Which way? Thereís no connection?
RUMSFELD: No. You have to go back and read it because it is a complex set of issues and imperfect intelligence scraps.
MATTHEWS: But the president said recently when he was asked Ė and he was with Tony Blair that time Ė the prime minister of Great Britain Ė and he said thereís no connection between 9/11 and Iraq.
RUMSFELD: If youíre asking were they Iraqis who were 18 people Ė
RUMSFELD: Ė engaged in 9/11, the answer is no.
MATTHEWS: Do you believe thereís still a possibility that the Iraqi government had something to do with planning the attack on us 9/11?
RUMSFELD: Not to my knowledge.
