Iraq, 9/11, and OKC?

Pushing the envelope a bit--but let's start here:

Al-Watan al-Arabi (Paris) reports that two Iraqis were arrested in Germany, charged with spying for Baghdad. The arrests came in the wake of reports that Iraq was reorganizing the external branches of its intelligence service and that it had drawn up a plan to strike at US interests around the world through a network of alliances with extremist fundamentalist parties.
The most serious report contained information that Iraq and Osama bin Ladin were working together. German authorities were surprised by the arrest of the two Iraqi agents and the discovery of Iraqi intelligence activities in several German cities. German authorities, acting on CIA recommendations, had been focused on monitoring the activities of Islamic groups linked to bin Ladin. They discovered the two Iraqi agents by chance and uncovered what they considered to be serious indications of cooperation between Iraq and bin Ladin. The matter was considered so important that a special team of CIA and FBI agents was sent to Germany to interrogate the two Iraqi spies.

Got it? Iraqi intelligence agents were very active in Germany, meeting with AlQuaeda-types, at least by the reporting of Al-Watan-Al-Arabi.

Now what do we know about Germany which is also of interest in dealing with terrorism?

We also know (as usual, NOT covered by the MSM) that a GERMAN national, known to the FBI and to the Southern Poverty Law Center, was very well-acquainted with the American perpetrators of the OKC bombing. (See:

It was also reported, someplace, that an Iraqi army officer had been hanging around with McVeigh--and in fact, that a "Middle-Eastern" appearing individual had been on the scene at OKC, but disappeared quickly.

We KNOW that Hussein would be happy to blow up a US building, especially within the USA. We KNOW that AlQueda has the same sentiments.

Suppose they were just friendly enough to do a JV here?
