Posted on 06/14/2006 8:52:58 AM PDT by Peach
Two major issues were used by the President in the run up to war with Iraq. One was the WMD issue and the other was Iraq's support for Al Qaeda.
Since the war began in March 2003, the Democrats and media have repeatedly lied to the American public that Saddam didn't have a relationship with Al Qaeda or Osama bin Laden. They have been permitted to lie without challenge by Congressional Republicans or the President or his administration.
It is well past time that we educate Republican Congressmen and the conservative media, and try to encourage Tony Snow and Karl Rove on the importance of not letting this lie go unchallenged.
Since the 1990's, the media wrote dozens and dozens of articles about the world's alarm at the growing relationship Saddam and Iraqi military officers had with Al Qaeda and bin Laden. In the next post, I will detail some of those links.
Additionally, our very own freeper, translator and national treasure, jveritas, has translated documents which show that Saddam had direct ties to the Taliban in Afghanistan.
It is my firm belief that if more Americans knew about the relationships discussed above, support for the war and our beloved military would increase substantially. The media has gotten away with this lie for long enough.
I am looking for specific suggestions on how to get the word out to the administration with the suggestion they use this evidence of a relationship between Saddam and the jihadists more often, and how to directly write or call our Congressmen, the media, Ken Mehlman as Chair of the GOP, talk radio hosts, etc.
Good job Peach
It probably wouldn't hurt to send send letters to the mainstream media
You just never know if an open minded staffer investigates the story a little further.
Thank you so very much, lormand. I appreciate it!
Thanks, Appy. I hope you'll consider sending just one e-mail.
Ping to an activism thread.
Wow, Peach, you've done your homework!!!
A great collection of links and articles. Good on you!
And a bump ;-)
Great work - I'll save this list for the "there's no connection..." crowd.
Zarqawi died trying to foment a civil and sectarian war.
Great job, Peach!
Here's a link to a speech by James Woolsey on July 27, 2004.
And the question and answer session after the speech.
Let's get to work guys! If everyone on the ping list would send a few emails to a few of the email addresses, it would get noticed!!
Get typing - you don't even have to get up from the chair or go anywhere! If you have any suggestions, please do post them!
Ironic, isn't it, that this topic is current the week that Zark bought the farm? Don't any of these people know Zark was operating in Iraq long before our invasion?
That's quite possible. I've had the same thought - as well as wondering if surrounding Iran wasn't the plan all along. Interestingly, I read a post by an Iraqi sunni yesterday that said "we're bringing the U.S. to us, so we don't have to fight them over there."
Thanks for those links; Woolsey is terrific which means that, of course, Clinton completely ignored him.
