"Saddam Celebrates September 11", Little Green Footballs, 7/21/2003
"Hereís a photograph taken by members of the 3rd Infantry Division near the Baghdad Airport, that you havenít seen published by our quagmire-obsessed, relentlessly negative media. It doesnít prove a connection between Saddam Hussein and the September 11 atrocities, of course; but clearly, he wanted someone to think the connection existed, whether it did or not."

NASIRIYA, Iraq (CNN) -- U.S. Marines searching Iraqi military headquarters in this southern city that was the site of intensive fighting came across a mural (background) depicting a plane crashing into a building complex resembling New York's twin towers, a news agency photograph showed Wednesday. The plane's logo and coloring resembled that of Iraqi Airlines, said Getty Images News Service executive Brian Felber, based in New York. The photograph, showing two rifle-toting Marines in front of the mural, was shot by staff photographer Joe Raedle, who is accompanying the 1st Marine Expeditionary Force from Task Force Tarawa.
