Same thing he’s been saying since 2003.
No, they didn't. But the left said they did and they said it over and over and over again till it was believed.
Lies, lies and more lies.
exactly right! Cheney is only reiterating what he always said...and the news media makes it seem like he is making a huge admission!
Cheney and company NEVER said Iraq was part of 9/11 BUT he did say...and it was borne out...that Iraq and Al-Quada had a relationship.
Most important...Iraq was eager and able to be home to terrorists like AlQuada
The other point never brought out was in the report that mentions NO WMD...the media ignored the fact that Iraq was able, willing, and ready to begin the nuclear program once the sanctions were lifted...something that Europe was gungho on before 9/11.
The Bush Administration never alleged that the Iraqis were involved in 9/11. That was a straw man argument constantly brought up by the MSM.
What the Bush Administration did say was that after 9/11, they couldn’t risk Saddam giving weapons of mass destruction to terrorists, so either Saddam had to admit inspectors, turn over all biological, chemical, and nuclear technologies, or be removed from power.
Saddam chose option B.
Nope, I don’t recall the Bush admin saying there was a link. I do recall the left twisting everything around and then blaming Bush.
Since shortly after 09/11, the left in this nation took on the persona of a 12 year old girl who wanted to go out on a date with a 19 year old boy, without a chaperon. Every excuse in the book has been used to try to get permission. The adults just aren’t having any of it.
Hussien had to go. In a world facing terrorism, the terrorists biggest soul-mate wasn’t going to be ignored.
My disappointment wasn’t focused on the targeting of Hussein, but the lack of targeting of the leaders of Hamas, Hezballah, (the West Bank [Arafat’s] terrorist org.), South East Asian terrorist organizations, and anyone else who could be tied to terrorism in any way.
We fell down on that IMO.
Alert MSNBC and the SRM.
A quote from James Woolsey:
Woolsey [former CIA director] also noted the meeting. Maybe Iraqi intelligence and the chief bomber of Sept. 11 like Pragues beautiful architecture, he said sarcastically. But at some point, it seems to me, we begin to get to at least a strong likelihood Iraq has been involved in some way.
I still get so angry reading media accounts of this type of thing.
“There is no evidence PROVING Saddam was involved in 911”
“Cheneys says there was no evidence Saddam was involved in 911.”
They have to lie everytime they report anything from a Conservative. They cannot speak straight because they so adore mass murdering Dictators who rejoiced at the slaughter in 911 and who used WMD as “human insecticides” to wipe out thousands of Kurds.
It does not matter because on the moral compass of Bush haters there is nothing more evil than a Dick Cheney defending the good and wellbeing of a great nation known as America.
And while we are at it the Duelfer report indicates more than 500 illegal WMD were found by the end of the reporting period. But alas, we have to pretend that the relentless lies of the media constitute facts.
What’s done is done.
Nobody but the left cares now.
