Even THEY can't get totally away with this s**t anymore.

The UN and the liberals are desperate to get control of the Interenet because they rely on obfuscation and ignorance to control people.

Was that indictment prior to Clinton refusing to take Bin Laden because we didnt have a legal basis for arresting him?

They aren't journalists, they are propagandists.

If you just examine the behavior of the progressive news outlets the past 3 to 4 years one has to wonder. The progressive networks tried to steal the election for Gore by announcing that the State of Florida went to Gore before the voting booths had even closed in the Florida panhandle. After the voting was finished Gore himself then was reluctant to acknowledge that he lost and the progressive news outlets eventually tried to then claim Bush used the Supreme Court to steal the Election. A few months later Al Queada under direction of Bin Laden unleashed a devastating attack on the US. Bush responds by Invading Afghanistan and then Iraq. There ends up being plenty of evidence that Iraq and Al Queada were working together against US interests. Some of this evidence even appeared years ago (before the progressive news outlets went into denial mode) in the progressive news outlets themselves. Now as the connections between Saddam and Al Queada, the connection between the Socialist Baath Party and Al Queada, is finally being fully documented and reported in conservative news outlets (the few that exist) the progressive news outlets proceed to out right lies that no connection existed. What are they afraid of ? What are they trying to cover up ?

The connection between the progressive socialists and Al Queada ? It was fairly obvious that leftists in Spain utilized the jihadists attacks on Spains mass transit system to win an election. Thats why Brokaw flat out lied yesterday. A connection between the Baathist Socialists and Al Queada illuminates the leftist/jihadists collusion.

Well, one Richard Clarke seemed to have thought that there was a connection between Saddam and the terrorists...when he worked for Bubba.
Iraq conspired with Bin Laden to produce WMDs...according to Richard Clarke

...and lets not forget that he was paying off suicide bombers' families to send their kids to blow themselves up for Allah

From CBS' John Roberts on the 9/11 Commission:

"...It is one of President Bush's last surviving justifications for war in Iraq, and today, it took a devastating hit when the 9-11 Commission declared there was no collaborative relationship between Saddam Hussein and Osama bin Laden. ... Those repeated associations left the majority of Americans believing Saddam was involved in 9/11, but the commission today put the nail in that connection, or for that matter, any other al-Qaida acts of terror against America, declaring, 'There is no credible evidence that Iraq and al-Qaida cooperated on attacks against the United States.' The report is yet another blow to the president's credibility as he struggles to find the exit door in Iraq and opens him up to new criticism on the wisdom of taking on Saddam with al-Qaida's leadership still at large...."

..from A. Sullivan's Blog

Okay .. here goes .. I'm posting my first picture. If it doesn't work .. well .. back to the drawingboard. Question: Why would Saddam have a painting made showing his pleasure at 9/11 .. IF he was not a participant in it ..?? Maybe Saddam didn't plan it, organize it, or train the terrorists .. but he could easily have funded it, and provided the place for training as evidenced by the airline shell at Salmon Pak.

Woohoo! Great find!

ALL: In case anyone you know who is 'skeptical' about the Bush Admin approach to WOT, or if anyone tries to tell you the Clinton Admin was equally as tough, here is the difference in a nutshell, straight from their mouth:

Clinton Admin approach: "We will identify, locate and prosecute all those responsible, right up the line, from those who constructed and delivered the bombs to those who paid for them and ordered it done."

Bush Admin approach: "We will identify, locate and KILL all those responsible, right up the line, from those who constructed and delivered the bombs to those who paid for them and ordered it done."

Add one more thing for GWB..."until the job is done"

The indictment was from the Clinton Justice department, under Janet Reno's authority and also State Department officials took part in the news conference announcing the indictment.

I totally forgot about that indictment

Should we send a blowup chart of this to Babs Boxers??

1998 was also the year that Clinton had the UN withdraw Weapons inspectors and ordered the DESERT FOX bombings of Irqi WMD sites which they now claim never existed.

This was spoke of at the beginning of the war. This, I assume, is when Bin Laden contacted Iraq but they never got a response. Good find but it has been discussed since the War in Iraq began.
