I can’t get beyond the fact that both Saddam and Osama both had the same goal, which was to get the US out of the middle east…

Hussein had no interest in dealing with AQ - the areas that Bin Ladin was able to get any traction in are the same areas where Hussein was never able to fully establish control. Allowing AQ to gain a foothold in Iraq would have been detrimental to Hussein maintaining the kind of power and control that he wanted.
