Edited on Wed Oct-06-04 02:53 PM by MsMagnificent
Vice President Dick Cheney told National Public Radio in January that there was "overwhelming evidence" of a relationship between Saddam and al-Qaida. Among the evidence he cited was Iraq's harboring of Abdul Rahman Yasin, a suspect in the 1993 World Trade Center bombing.

10. But here's the rub:
My understanding is that he's claiming he never mentioned a link between Iraq and 9/11 -- that claiming a link between Iraq and Al Qaeda isn't the same thing. It's the kind of parsing they always do, as if the idiots who believe them are making that "subtle" distinction. And as Edwards hammered last night, the connection between Iraq and Al Qaeda is "tenuous, at best."
