Hussein's Prewar Ties To Al-Qaeda Discounted
Oh, I can't help myself. You stupid fuckers, I could (and did) have told you that. I guess I should be happy that the WAPO is printing this story in part to refute Cheney's ridiculous assertions on Limpball's show yesterday, such as:
The report's release came on the same day that Vice President Cheney, appearing on Rush Limbaugh's radio program, repeated his allegation that al-Qaeda was operating inside Iraq "before we ever launched" the war, under the direction of Abu Musab al-Zarqawi, the terrorist killed last June.But since the WAPO led the charge in pre-war hysterical reporting, I'm not letting them off the hook.
"This is al-Qaeda operating in Iraq," Cheney told Limbaugh's listeners about Zarqawi, who he said had "led the charge for Iraq." Cheney cited the alleged history to illustrate his argument that withdrawing U.S. forces from Iraq would "play right into the hands of al-Qaeda."
They can kiss my centaur ass.
