WTF? Could someone PLEASE brief her? Maybe show her page 18 of the Washington Post where it was finally reported in the US that the intel was FIXED?

I don't believe it. I can't believe she said such a thing. That is truly shocking.

If she is saying such stufff, I am surprised she didn't speak of the WMD they found.

I imagine they would all nod enthusiastically when you share your bombshell regarding Bush intentionally allowing 911.

The 911 Commission found evidence that OBL and Saddam's intermediaries had at least three meetings.

What was that about?

Interesting, Lash. I heard that the US government and Saddam had at least three meetings...

So maybe Saddam and the US gov were behind 9/11?

I'm sure we'll all be clamoring for your foreign policy expertise now.

In the pages here, we have members who said there is no way Saddam and OBL would work together because of religious differences. When conservatives said a common enemy could bring them together--it was disbelieved.

The 911 Commission uncovered that it was true.

Now, you try to equate the significance of a meeting between OBL and Saddam with what? circa 1980 meetings?

Al Qaeda-Hussein Link Is Dismissed

"The Sept. 11 commission reported yesterday that it has found no "collaborative relationship" between Iraq and al Qaeda, challenging one of the Bush administration's main justifications for the war in Iraq. "

SOURCE WASHINGTON POST

Quote:


[Adam Boulton, Sky News (London):] One question for you both. Do you believe that there is a link between Saddam Hussein, a direct link, and the men who attacked on September the 11th?

THE PRESIDENT: I can't make that claim.

THE PRIME MINISTER: That answers your question.

I listened to it. Didn't you?

They said they did have proof that at least three meetings took place between OBL and Saddam's intermediaries.

Do you deny it?

Lash - You might also read the following so you can be fully informed:

http://www.cbc.ca/stories/2002/11/01/bushiraq021101

http://www.govexec.com/dailyfed/0803/080803nj2.htm

And most recently we know the war was preplanned so the "connection" was just a selling point that I guess you bought.

I see the first paragraph in your link, but your second paragraph isn't there at all. What the article actually quotes her as saying is:

"The absence of freedom in the Middle East -- the freedom deficit -- is what produced the ideology of hatred that allowed them to fly airplanes into a building on a fine September day."

This does not to me seem to imply that she thinks Iraq was behind 9/11.

The connection was documented and accepted by the bipartisan 911 Commission.

If you buy crap such as the war was pre-planned, then you close your eyes to facts where ever they appear.

Meetings took place.

No matter how much you hate Bush, or buy alien melodrama. Meetings took place.
