A US commission probing the September 11, 2001, terror attacks today found no evidence of "operational" ties between Iraq and al-Qaeda but did not

The issue has major political overtones with US President George W Bush, who is seeking re-election in November, citing alleged ties between Saddam
Hussein and al-Qaeda as a key reason for invading Iraq last year.
