So It Has Come To This

The 9/11 Commission says there was no relationship between Al Qaeda and Iraq. This morning President Bush says there was a relationship between Al Qaeda and Iraq.

I guess that depends on what your definition of 'was' was.

The commission stated there was no prior Al Qaeda / Iraq link explicitly regarding 9-11-01 attacks. The media extrapolated this in their banners to "No Link, Period".

The Al Qaeda / Iraq linkage - weapons procurement quid pro quos, etc - was documented before Bush took office. Hillary, Kerry, and many other folks are on record pre-9-11 condemning these contacts. They're have a tough time repudiating these words now.

True-Lib has it right. The comission said there is a clear line drawn from 9/11 and Al-Queda. We've seen there are clear lines between Hussein and Al-Queda. But never has Bush or his proxies claimed a direct link from Hussein to 9/11. The problem I have with taking out Hussein is that we didn't go after some of the other terrorist states and sponsoring states (Syria, the Saudi royalty).
