We belive that Whenever, Wherever might have been code for 9/11

Apparently, not only do they all look alike, but:

Former Navy secretary John Lehman, a Republican member of the commission investigating the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks, said Sunday that documents found in Iraq “indicate that there is at least one officer of Saddam’s Fedayeen, a lieutenant colonel, who was a very prominent member of al Qaeda.” Although he said the identity “still has to be confirmed,” Lehman introduced the information on NBC’s “Meet the Press” to counter a commission staff report that said there were contacts between Iraq and al Qaeda but no “collaborative relationship.”

Yesterday, the senior administration official said Lehman had probably confused two people who have similar-sounding names.

One of them is Ahmad Hikmat Shakir Azzawi, identified as an al Qaeda “fixer” in Malaysia. Officials say he served as an airport greeter for al Qaeda in January 2000 in Kuala Lumpur, at a gathering for members who were to be involved in the attacks on the USS Cole, the World Trade Center and the Pentagon.

Iraqi military documents, found last year, listed a similar name, Lt. Col. Hikmat Shakir Ahmad, on a roster of Hussein’s militia, Saddam’s Fedayeen.

“By most reckoning that would be someone else” other than the airport greeter, said the administration official, who would speak only anonymously because of the matter’s sensitivity. He added that the identification issue is still being studied but “it doesn’t look like a match to most analysts.”

Besides investigating Ahmad Hikmat Shakir Azzawi and Lt. Col. Hikmat Shakir Ahmad, the 9/11 commission is also investigating Shakira to find out why her music is so gosh-darned danceable and how she can be so blonde and yet so delightfully Latin…
