Asked at his press conference what invading Iraq had to do with Sept. 11, Bush seemed so dumbfounded that at first he answered directly. "Nothing," he said, before sliding into a falsely aggrieved self-defense -- "except for it's part of -- and nobody has ever suggested in this administration that Saddam Hussein ordered the attack."Of course, the last bit is a lie. Fox News, conservative attack dogs like David Horowitz, and Cheney, have certainly been busy doing that very thing(which means that Bush is calling them all liars). But this is something they need to be held to. Because without that suggestion, which many still believe, we would never have gone into Iraq, and just think how many thousands would still be alive and how much of our national resources would not have been wasted.
