Condi still dishing out lies to the public
Why would anyone believe anything coming out of the mouth of any member of the Bush Administration? First, we have Dick Cheney still lying about a connection between Al-Qaeda and Saddam Hussein, now we get fellow lapdog Condoleezza Rice echoing the pathetic talking point that no one is buying.
US Secretary of StateCondoleezza Rice insisted that Al-Qaeda operatives in Iraq were developing weapons of mass destruction prior to the ousting of Saddam Hussein.
Rice, giving a series of interviews ahead of the fifth anniversary of the September 11 Al-Qaeda attacks on the United States, brushed aside a recently released US intelligence report saying there was no evidence Saddam's regime was helping Al-Qaeda obtain such arms.
"There were ties between Iraq and Al-Qaeda," she said on Fox News Sunday.
I guess she was too busy buying shoes and playing tennis to read the Senate Intelligence Report that clearly states the obvious...
Rice stood by the claim Sunday despite a February 2002 report from the Defense Department's intelligence arm which was just released by a Senate Committee and stated that Iraq was "unlikely to have provided Bin Laden any useful (chemical or biological) knowledge or assistance."Yeah, I'm sure you or the President don't recall seeing that report.
"That particular report I don't remember seeing," Rice said when asked if she and Bush had not ignored the assessment by the Defense Intelligence Agency.
Why would anyone trust these people?
Remember, Democrat take over the Congress equals subpoena power.
Unlike other bloggers, for me, the anniversary of 9-11 reminds me why it's so important that the Democrats need to be in a position where they can hold the Bush Administration accountable not only for the lies they told during the run-up to the war, but also for their failures in the lead up to 9-11, taking their eye off capturing Osama Bin Laden as well as their failure to help American citizens during the Katrina disaster.
Unlike cheerleaders Nancy "drug queen" Johnson, Chris "flip-flop" Shays and Rob "the Gitmo rice is great" Simmons, you know that Chris Murphy, Joe Courtney, and Diane Farrell will do right thing and ask the tough questions from people in this administration.
