In today's edition of my local Liberal Lies, or Tulsa World, newspaper, there's piece in the editorial section titled No Link. It's about the Kangaroo Commissions findings. The piece starts off with
"That thud you heard Wednesday came from the White House. The reason was that the 9/11 commission reported that there was never any link between Iraq and al-Qaida or between Saddam Hussein and the attacks of Sept. 11, 2001"
1. The reports actually doesn't say there wasn't a link between Saddam and al-Qaida. It's been proven that there was
2. Bush NEVER said that Saddam had anything to do with 9/11. He never made a connection or used it as a reason to go into Iraq.

It went on to say
"That link was, in fact, one of the main selling points in President Bush's pitch to invade Iraq in the first place."
I believe I've already covered this.

"No doubt, Saddam was a tyrant and a mass murderer, but those were not the main reasons given for the invasion. It is doubtful that the American public would have approved the invasion based solely on removing Saddam because he was a bad guy."
Actually, I think they would have.

"It was the threat of weapons of mass destruction and the possible connection with the terrorist of 9/11 - although 15 of the 19 hijackers were from Saudi Arabia - that rallied the support of most America for the invasion.

There have been no WMD's found yet and now the 9/11 connection has been debunked."
No WMD's? What was that sarin filled bomb? What about the Useless Nations report that said Saddam did have WMD's and shipped them to other countries before and during the war?

"The attempt to tie 9/11 to Saddam was a mistake."
Ahh...Never mind.

"It's time to tell the truth. The American people can handle it."
I agree. Right minded Americans can handle the truth. It's the American Left that have trouble with the truth.
