Bush slammed for Iraq link to 9/11
Critics of the U.S. war in Iraq have condemned President George W. Bush for attempting to link the insurgency there with the September 11, 2001 attacks on New York and Washington.
In a televised address marking a year since the U.S. handover of sovereignty in Iraq, Bush urged Americans not to “forget the lessons of September 11.”…
…But Democrats accused the president of reviving a questionable link between Iraq and 9/11.
“I think the American people are a lot smarter than that,” Delaware Sen. Joseph Biden said. “They’ve figured this out.”
And in Britain, Lynne Jones, a lawmaker in Prime Minister Tony Blair’s ruling Labour Party, said any attempt to suggest that Iraq was a response to the September 11 attacks was “absolute nonsense.”
“There is absolutely no connection between Saddam Hussein and al Qaeda,” she said.
“What they have ensured, in invading Iraq, is they have actually promoted al Qaeda’s involvement in other countries, including Iraq.”
When are the Bush supporters going to finally come out of the woodwork and admit they were wrong? There was no link between Osama and Saddam. There were no Weapons of Mass Destruction. John Kerry didn’t fake it in Vietnam. And Bush takes waaaay too much vacation. etc etc etc
Both candidates have pretty dismal school records, both candidates are silver-spooned trust fund babies, and both candidates have hot daughters (wait, what?)
So come on, Republicans, just admit that the war was a bad, unjustified idea, and having an alcoholic religious zealot in the White House might not have been such a great idea after all. We’re lazy liberals, man, that’s all we need! We’re not going to go to the actual trouble of doing anything about it. There’s no way we could muster up the energy to go through anything as tedious as an impeachment… I mean we can barely motivate ourselves enough to protest. All we need is for you to admit it.
