Bush: Iraq NOT linked to 9-11
President Bush has abandoned the farce that Saddam Hussein had a hand in the 9-11 attacks.
Yesterday the president flat-out stated, "We've had NO evidence that Saddam Hussein was involved with Sept. 11."
At this point, around 70% of the American public believes Saddam DID have a connection to the terrorist attacks.
Why would they believe that? Because that's the impression the Bush administration has emphasized.
About a year ago (9-26-2002) Secretary of State Colin Powell said a link between Iraq and Sept. 11 "can't be dismissed."
In March of this year (3-14-2003), before our invasion of Iraq. The Christian Science Monitor reported this:
I hope this sinks into the heads of the 7 in 10 Americans who have been spoon-fed the belief that Saddam caused the 9-11 attacks. I repeat, for strong emphasis: President Bush has now stated, "We've had NO evidence that Saddam Hussein was involved with Sept. 11."
