Professional Career

His writing has featured in the New York Post, Washington Times,, National Review, and Reason as a career political journalist. He has been on CNN, The McLaughlin Group, Fox News Channel, MSNBC, CNBC, and C-SPAN as a commentator. In 2016, he was named editor-in-chief of The Weekly Standard. Clarity Media Group stated on December 14, 2018, that the magazine would be discontinued after 23 years of publication. Hayes, along with Jonah Goldberg and Toby Stock, founded The Dispatch, a conservative media firm, in 2019.

Prior to the proposed 2003 invasion of Iraq, Stephen Hayes spoke to BBC News, arguing for American intervention: “I think liberating Iraq will send a strong message to Iran, North Korea, other hostile regimes not only because it will show that we will – the United States will not tolerate bullies, especially bullies with weapons of mass destruction, but it will also I think hopefully show what a free liberated people, what a free liberated Iraqi people can do for themselves and it will be – again it will be a fabulous model, not only for the Middle East but for places throughout the world that haven’t had these kinds of freedoms in the past or haven’t had them realised.”

Hayes was regarded as “the most relentless proponent of the Iraq-Al Qaeda link outside the administration” by Gideon Rose, editor of Foreign Affairs, in 2004. Hayes was described as one of the most successful amplifiers of the Bush administration’s Iraq War allegations regarding an Iraq-Al Qaeda link by Spencer Ackerman in 2008. There was no link between Hussein and Al Qaeda, according to investigations. The 9/11 Commission found in 2004 that “no collaborative operational linkages” existed.

His 2004 book, The Connection

How al Qaeda’s Collaboration with Saddam Hussein has Endangered America, claimed to show that Saddam Hussein’s Iraq and al-Qaeda had an operational link. A leaked document from Undersecretary of Defense for Policy Douglas J. Feith to the United States Congress on October 27, 2003, was his main source; Feith had been instructed by Deputy Defense Secretary Paul Wolfowitz to link Hussein to Al Qaeda. In a 2003 piece for the Weekly Standard, Hayes stated that “there can no longer be any real debate about whether Saddam Hussein’s Iraq collaborated with Osama bin Laden and al Qaeda to plan against Americans.”

Other intelligence officials, including W. Patrick Lang, the former head of the DIA’s Middle East section, disputed the accuracy of Feith’s memo’s contents, calling the Weekly Standard article “false.” “a collection of unconfirmed reports, many of which suggest that the two groups were still attempting to form some sort of relationship. Why did they have to keep trying if their relationship was so fruitful?” The contents of Feith’s report were disproved by Pentagon and CIA assessments.
