US Supports Nazis, Communists, Gang Members, and Dick Cheney

WASHINGTON - Vice President Dick Cheney repeated his assertions of al-Qaida links to Saddam Hussein’s Iraq on Thursday as the Defense Department released a report citing more evidence that the prewar government did not cooperate with the terrorist group.

Cheney contended that al-Qaida was operating in Iraq before the March 2003 invasion led by U.S. forces and that terrorist Abu Musab al-Zarqawi was leading the Iraqi branch of al-Qaida. Others in al-Qaida planned the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks.

“He took up residence there before we ever launched into Iraq, organized the al-Qaida operations inside Iraq before we even arrived on the scene and then, of course, led the charge for Iraq until we killed him last June,” Cheney told radio host Rush Limbaugh during an interview. “As I say, they were present before we invaded Iraq.”

Has evil Dick Cheney lost his cotton picking mind? What is wrong with that man. My headline speaks to the fallacy of his argument. Osama Bin Laden and Saddam Hussein did not get along with each other. Let's review for the retarded amongst us. Hi George!

Osama Bin Laden wanted to promote theocracy. He envisions a reborn Caliphate where the Islamic world is re-united under religious rule. In contrast, Saddam Hussein supressed radical islamists. He ruled secularly. He put nominal christians such as Taraq Aziz in his government. Osama Bin Laden was not very amused with him. But, there was a person who was loosely allied with Osama who fled into Iraq. Therefore Iraq must be destroyed in order to save it.

Under Cheney's theory, if there is any member of any organization who breathes air in a country, that means there is a link. By his logic, there are members of every group that pisses off somebody in the United States; therefore everybody has the right to invade us.

We harbor Henry Kissinger at the moment. Several countries believe he is a war criminal. Do they have the right to invade us to take him? This is just window dressing. Cheney's policy is actually worse than this crap he spews. It is simple might makes right. In a way, I wish he would just say that then bellowing out these inanities.

Al-Zarqawi had nothing to do with 9/11 as far as any intelligence shows. The intelligence shows that we knew where he was however. We could have dropped one massive bomb on his neighborhood and killed him and a few hundred people if he was truly our concern. Instead we have chaos. Cheney can not stop lying.

The Washington Post today has a story titled "Hussein's Prewar Ties To Al-Qaeda Discounted". This is from a report from the Pentagon. This would be the opposite of what Dick Cheney is saying. Funny that.
