Did Saddam Offer Osama Sanctuary in 1999?

Many reporters and politicians claim that Osama Bin Laden and Saddam Hussein were enemies, but according to this CNN article of 2/13/99, Saddam once offered Osama asylum in Iraq:

"Iraqi President Saddam Hussein has offered asylum to bin Laden, who openly supports Iraq against the Western powers."

The Foreign Military Studies Office Joint Reserve Intelligence Center at Leavenworth and West Point's Combatting Terrorism Center have released documents captured in Iraq.
The documents include details about Iraq's sponsorship of terrorism and about the relationship and cooperation of the Iraqi intelligence with Al Qaeda.

Saddam was such a helpful fellow. According to the tenured Plagiarist of Ethnic Studies, Ward Churchill, even the American Indian Movement (AIM) received money from Saddam Hussein.
