Click the graphic for the rest of the story... There's an awful lot of speculation about the hussein/bin laden connection but I think we know who gave birth to him!<br><br><br><br>

Now Matt... you know this is all just speculation that was later found false. It's untrue, so why are you trafficking in it?<br><br>-- Charlie Alpha Roger Yankee Whiskey<br>

Hmm. Christmas is a christian religious celebration. I don't think those guys are of that persuasion wether or not they're connected. <br><br>But now that you bring religion up , considering all the furor over church and state separation issues such as "under God" on money, prayer in schools, the Ten Commandments in government installations, etc., I wonder if Christmas, along with Easter, Good Friday, Sundays and perhaps Thanksgiving should no longer be considered federal holidays. We could have mail delivered every day and Congress and the Supreme Court could be in session every day too. I'm sure they could get more done working seven days a week and not having to worry about interruptions for christian traditions. It could save taxpayer dollars too because those religious days would be like any other day so no overtime considerations. <br><br><br><br><br><br><br><br>

So they talked. So did our government and Bin Laden as well as our government and Hussein. Does that make our government 9/11 collaborators too? There is still no Bin Laden connection to Hussein shown in regards to 9/11.<br><br>And no, still no Christmas card. Not even a Ramadan card.<br><br>
