Skip to comments.Sarah Palin on Fox says she thought Iraq was behind 9/11
Posted on 01/13/2010 8:08:37 AM PST by Al B.
In her debut as a contributor to Fox News, former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin admitted Tuesday that leading up to her 2008 vice presidential debate she thought Iraq may have been behind the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001.
Interviewed by Fox Newss Bill OReilly on his show The OReilly Factor, Palin trashed many of the critical accounts of her candidacy in the new book Game Change. But one story from the book that Palin did not say was made up or a lie was the description of her uncertainty as to whether Iraq had a hand in the planning of the September 11 attacks.
I did talk a lot to [campaign strategist] Steve Schmidt about the history of the war and where the attackers could have come from, Palin said of her debate prep during the fall of 2008 more than five years after the start of the war in Iraq and seven years after the terrorist attacks that hit New York and Washington.
I do admit to asking questions about that, she said.

so because she asked did Saddam have anything to do with it , the writer says she said saddam was behind it.
I hope Beck show everyone this article and then shows the video to make this writer look stupid as he is.
These media fools are so twisted with hate that they forget that there is video .
Gone are the old days of saying something in a paper and everyone goes with it. We have camera, recorders, video’s etc now and all Sarah has to do is show the clip.
Get this media fools, Sarah is not going away and the more you keep attacking her and lying about her the more folks will side with her
She DID NOT say that. Politico is lying.
The Governor is sitting down with Glenn today at 5 PM EST...I believe the re-broadcast is at 2 AM EST. Considering the ratings this will bring to FNC; I suspect this show will also be rebroadcast several times this weekend...
O’REILLY: Was it a lie that you thought Saddam Hussein was behind 9/11?
PALIN: You know what, on that, I did talk a lot to Steve Schmidt about the history of the war and about where, perhaps, the 9/11 terrorists came from and could there have been any connection to Saddam.
O’REILLY: OK, so that’s...
PALIN: So I admit that I have questions about it.
O’REILLY: ...that’s not a lie but it’s right. But you didn’t you weren’t blaming 9/11 on Saddam Hussein?
PALIN: No. No, no, no.
TV. 5pm EST
I’m going to be sure to watch it
Did not comment on a growing problem with people kicking midgets in the shin. She must agree with it.
Blah Blah Blah Blah Hitler Blah Blah Blah Blah Tea Bag Blah Blah. Same DNC talking points.
EMAIL ANDY BARR TELL HIM HES A LIAR.
I’m sending that part of the transcript off to the writer, thanks, I’ll also be letting him know what a complete fool he is and don’t insult us again with your blatant lies
“Lying bstrds...she said nothing of the kind...and as she was about to explain what happened. OReally, of course, cut her off...”
Which is why she should not have signed on to the tv deal, if she any aspirations for prez. Everyword she says will be twisted and miscontrued, and it doesn’t matter how much is later clarified. She was fine on Facebook. She could say what she wanted to, when she wanted to, with the luxury of going over and editing before it appears.
If you thought she was badgered and lied about before, just wait a few weeks or so when the MSM gets to their twisting and bending whatever she says.
And Barr - politico
How would he know? Young Andy apparently forgot to watch the actual interview but he absolutely knew an easy way to get hits for the site even though the dag ate his homework. Wake up Andy, it's time for school.
just sent the part of the transcript off to him and I also told what thought of him
Bush never pinned blame for the attacks directly on the Iraqi president. Still, the overall effect was to reinforce an impression that persists among much of the American public: that the Iraqi dictator did play a direct role in the attacks. A New York Times/CBS poll this week shows that 45 percent of Americans believe Mr. Hussein was "personally involved" in Sept. 11, about the same figure as a month ago.
There were allegations that Iraq had ties with Al Qaida within the GWB admin. Later the info was proven inaccurate, but documents captured by US forces from the Iraqi Intel indicated that Saddam was making overtures to Al Qaida and vice versa. That was an eye openner for the CIA because their experts allege that Saddam is secular and will never work with Islamic fundamentalists like Al Qaida and vice versa way before 9/11. New info indicated that both groups needed each other that time, AQ wanted a backup sanctuary just in case Afghanistan kicks them out and Saddam wanted as much Muslim support for his weakening regime. Alot of this info is still being interpretted from Arabic to English and stored in the US intel archives. GWB never used the info to strengthen his reasons for war in Iraq. Maybe it contained sensitive info that cannot be publicized, who knows, maybe our grandchildren will get to peruse them in the future.
Looking at Andy Barr’s photo, I can tell he has Obama and Levi Johnston photos pasted on his ceiling.
Right now, Andy Barr, Ben Smith, and Jonathan Martin got their Obama thongs in a twist because his approval numbers are under 50%.
Today, the three of them are going to put their diapers and suck their thumbs while they watch Palin on Beck’s show.
Did he ask her about why there is a North and South Korea and what the Federal Reserve does? I am disturbed that she possibly didnt know.
She did not say that. I heard what she said. They really feel threatened by her and want to destroy her.
Saddam was behind the '93 attack on the WTC. Why is it so hard for them to see?
When they have to lie to prove a point, maybe they should review the point they’re trying to make.
Actually, there was good reason to think that Saddam Hussein was involved with 9/11, if not the primary motivating force behind it. His intelligence chief met with one of the leading 9/11 hijackers in Prague not long before the bombing.
George Tenet denied it, repeatedly. But who are you going to believe, Clinton’s lying stooge in the CIA, or the government of Czechoslavakia? George Bush took far too long to get rid of Tenet. As a result the war was undermined, as was Bush’s reputation. Bush just stood there and let them lie about it. As, apparently, Palin was supposed to do.
“There were allegations that Iraq had ties with Al Qaida within the GWB admin”
There were a lot of allegations about a lot of stuff within that admininistration.
