Kos Busts Bush

Bush is now back-pedalling from the al-Qaida/Iraq connection: "This administration never said that the 9/11 attacks were orchestrated between Saddam and al-Qaida," Bush said. "We did say there were numerous contacts between Saddam Hussein and al-Qaida. For example, Iraqi intelligence officers met with (Osama) bin Laden, the head of al-Qaida, in the Sudan. There's numerous contacts between the two."

That sounds pretty convincing - the strategy of the right wing seemed to revolve around constantly using "al-Qaida" and "Saddam" in the same sentence, without specifically linking the two bogey-men.

Well, Kos found an easy-to-overlook claim by Bush that they were connected - in the letter to Congress declaring war on Iraq!! "I have also determined that the use of armed force against Iraq is consistent with the United States and other countries continuing to take the necessary actions against international terrorists and terrorist organizations, including those nations, organizations, or persons who planned, authorized, committed, or aided the terrorist attacks that occurred on September 11, 2001."

You're so out of touch with the world Dan. Why do you insist on going down with the ship? Don't you know where this is headed? All the liberals jumped on the bandwagon with the media coverage on the connection to Iraq and now even the ineffectual 9-11 commission knows and has found there is a connection.

Now the media has pie in their eye because they exploited and exaggerrated and they are the ones backpedalling. Too bad the dems have tied their hitch to this wagon. Even worse, Kerry's in the driver's seat. Lib newscasters are even admitting the commission's findings are inconsistent with the media's coverage. Something they never seem to learn is that you shouldn't act as if you know the truth until the truth comes out. Too bad they never seem to remember that classified information is always the most damning.
Going to be a lonely November for you.

LJ - what in the world are you talking about? I didn't mention the 9-11 commission. I'm talking about the contrast between Bush saying the administration never said the 9/11 attacks were orchestrated between Saddam and Al-Qaida, and Bush saying Saddam was one of the ones "who planned, authorized, committed, or aided the terrorist attacks."

Another Bush flip-flop.
