From a Freeper's outstanding research to millions of ears.
Rush is just started talking about this--- he's been lurking again.
Rush is doing this beautifully!
Bush even is on fire, reading the 1940's article from the NY Times that Rush mentioned yesterday.
LOL ... all they need is google ..
I found LOADS of articles from 1998 mentioning the connection
Like this one .. Gosh I love research *L*
Saddam Hussein's regime has opened talks with Osama bin Laden, bringing closer the threat of a terrorist attack using chemical, biological or nuclear weapons, according to US intelligence sources and Iraqi opposition officials.
The key meeting took place in the Afghan mountains near Kandahar in late December. The Iraqi delegation was led by Farouk Hijazi, Baghdad's ambassador in Turkey and one of Saddam's most powerful secret policemen, who is thought to have offered Bin Laden asylum in Iraq
Pakistan helped Osama, Iraq didn't: 9/11 panel
Of course they have amnesia, it doesn't fit into their agenda. The truth according to liberals is whatever is more politically expedient at the time, and many times it is quite marxist.
You don't get it. We apoligized for our mistaken, biased coverage in the run-up to the war in Iraq because it fits our agenda to defeat Mr. Bush at all costs. This includes any statement made by anyone claiming Mr. Hussein was a bad man or acted in concert with bad men, like Osama Bin Laden. It's not like we're going to tell you that there's a tape graphically depicting prison torture directed Mr. Hussein. Only American troops can systematically torture Iraqi prisoners. Remember Abu Ghraib?
We apologized. Why hasn't Mr. Bush apologized? Mr. Bush should apologize to the American people for letting them think Mr. Hussein was an evil dictator. Things are not so black and white. Why hasn't Mr. Bush apologized? Mr. Bush is not nuanced and his world view is simplistic. Why hasn't Mr. Bush apologized? We apologized. Why hasn't Mr. Bush apologized?
The New York Times
P.S. Why hasn't Mr. Bush apologized?
From one El Dorado to another, his name is Stephen Hayes, his new book is called "Connection".
He also writes for the Weekly Standard.
I am certain they will maintain that "the truth changed", as "everyone knows" WJC's administration was riddled with lies....
See post 30 for link.
That's the sort of thing I was hoping for.
Dave, here's a link to Peach's outstanding list of connections:
Thanks, I could not remember his name.
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?
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.
