Now he tells us: Bush admits Iraq had NOTHING to do with 9/11
Here's how that trainwreck of an "update on the Middle East" press conference went for Capt Clueless: BUSH: Imagine a world in which you had Saddam Hussein, who had the capacity to make a WMD, who was paying suiciders to kill innocent life, who had relations w/ Zarqawi. You know, I’ve heard this theory about, you know, everything was just fine until we arrived in Iraq and -you know, the stir-up-the-hornet’s- nest theory. It just doesn’t hold water, as far as I’m concerned. (raising his voice) The terrorists attacked us and killed 3000 of our citizens before we started the freedom agenda in the Middle East. They were …" QUESTION: What did Iraqi have to do with that? BUSH: What did Iraq have to do with what? QUESTION: The attacks upon the World Trade Center. BUSH: Nothing. . . . .Except for it’s part of — and nobody’s ever suggested in this admin that Saddam Hussein ordered the attack. Iraq was a -Iraq- the lesson of Sept the 11th is: Take threats before they fully materialize." (Before they fully materialize? Umm, just like you what DIDN'T do when you got that memo saying "bin Laden determined to crash planes into buildings?) Now I know practically all of us libs knew that Iraq had nothing to do with 9/11, hell, we've been screaming this from the rooftops for yrs now, but having Bush openly admit this just may slap some sense into the heads of these 64% of people polled by Harris in July '06 who say it is true that Saddam had strong links to Al Qaeda. And while we're at it, maybe we should enlighten the people who are actually in Iraq since a Zogby poll from Feb 28/06 shockingly found this: 85% (that’s eighty-five, folks) of US troops in Iraq think they are there in "retaliation for Saddams role in 9-11" Well, our troops gullibly guzzling this belief down wouldn't have anything to do w/the fact that like Joseph Goebbels, our esteemed Cheney & Feith, and Bush & Rice and 9/11 Commission witness, Judith Yaphe repeatedly spewed the lie THAT somehow Saddam was connected to 9/11, now would it? And I guess Bush's own March 18, 2003 letter to the Speaker of the House to announce the Authorization for Use of Military Force Against Iraq that stated this: "Acting pursuant to the Constitution and Public Law 107-243 is consistent with the US and other countries continuing to take the necessary actions against internatl terrorists and terrorist orgs, including those nations, organizations, or persons who planned, authorized, committed, or aided the terrorist attacks that occurred on Sept 11, 2001." was somehow just simply misconstrued, huh? What's next for the BushCo lies? We will stand down when Iraqis stand up? Err... umm... wait a minute... he already nixed that by also announcing at this press conference that "we will remain in Iraq for as long as he is President."
