President Bush makes his case to Brian Williams regarding the war on terror and Iraq. Bush laid it all out again. It is all George Bush, no BS. Williams succumbed to the obligatory ridiculous question of was Saddam Hussein involved in the 9/11 attack. Aside from the fact that no investigation ever said, nor did the President say (as he also refutes), that Saddam had an involvement in the 9/11 attack. That was Ted Kennedy's interpretation. Obviously impaired.
Why is it that Brian Williams never heard that terrorists, even al Qaeda, had been in and were operating in Iraq both before and after 9/11/2001?
Jog your memory 10 years ago, Clinton administration. Iraq is a terrorist state. They harbor and support terrorists. Axis of evil, another reminder. Since 9/11 Saddam was supporting suicide bombings in Lebanon and Israel. Doesn't take a rocket scientist, but apparently more than say John Kerry, to figure out that it is only a matter of time before Saddam hooks up with third parties, like al-Qaeda, to provide nifty weapons for them to use on us. Bush saw that too. And that's why it was Iraq. It boils down to this, Kerry, Feingold, and people like them, would bet your life that Saddam wouldn't do that. Bush, on the other hand, will not.
The Islamofascists that got away from Afghanistan went to Iraq and Iran, and a cave somewhere in Pakistan.
