Powell Ties 'bin Laden' Message to Iraq

By BARRY SCHWEID, AP Diplomatic Writer

WASHINGTON - Secretary of State Colin Powell (news - web sites) told a Senate
panel Tuesday that what appears to be a new statement from Osama bin Laden
(news - web sites) shows why the world needs to be concerned about Iraqi ties
to terrorism.

Powell said he read a transcript of "what bin Laden — or who we believe to be
bin Laden" will be saying on the Al-Jazeera Arab satellite station later
Tuesday, "where once again he speaks to the people of Iraq and talks about
their struggle and how he is in partnership with Iraq."

"This nexus between terrorists and states that are developing weapons of mass
destruction can no longer be looked away from and ignored," Powell told the
Senate Budget Committee.
