Outrage! Majority of Democrats Link Iraq to 9-11
— Ace

Says so right there in the preamble of the resolution for war they voted for.

This is outrageous. We all know Saddam had nothing to do with 9-11. How can they use this sacred and horrific part of our history for political purposes?

I demand an investigation into articles of impeachment for all Democratic Congressmen who voted for this lie. And I don't care that you can't impeach a Congressmen. I want articles drawn up anyway. The Constitution is, after all, a "living document," which playful little minx of a charter that sexifully changes to adapt to modern needs.

How dare they sell us this war on a lie.

This is going to make the Downing Street Memos look like, well... the Downing Street Memos, I guess.

Thanks to Lorie.

Update: Powerline notices, too.

This was mentioned on Brit Hume's report yesterday, and I doubt anywhere else in the big media.

And Steven Hayes Too: In the Weekly Standard:

"THERE IS NO EVIDENCE that Saddam Hussein was connected in any way to al Qaeda."

So declared CNN Anchor Carol Costello in an interview yesterday with Representative Robin Hayes (no relation) from North Carolina.

Hayes politely challenged her claim. "Ma'am, I'm sorry, but you're mistaken. There's evidence everywhere. We get access to it. Unfortunately, others don't."

CNN played the exchange throughout the day. At one point, anchor Daryn Kagan even seemed to correct Rep. Hayes after replaying the clip. "And according to the record, the 9/11 Commission in its final report found no connection between al Qaeda and Saddam Hussein."

The CNN claims are wrong. Not a matter of nuance. Not a matter of interpretation. Just plain incorrect. They are so mistaken, in fact, that viewers should demand an on-air correction.

But such claims are, sadly, representative of the broad media misunderstanding of the relationship between Iraq and al Qaeda. Richard Cohen, columnist for the Washington Post, regularly chides the Bush administration for presenting what he calls fabricated or "fictive" links between Iraq and al Qaeda. The editor of the Los Angeles Times scolded the Bush administration for perpetuating the "myth" of such links. "Sixty Minutes" anchor Lesley Stahl put it bluntly: "There was no connection."

Conveniently, such analyses ignore statements like this one from Thomas Kean, chairman of the 9/11 Commission. "There was no question in our minds that there was a relationship between Iraq and al Qaeda." Hard to believe reporters just missed it--he made the comments at the press conference held to release the commission's final report. And that report detailed several "friendly contacts" between Iraq and al Qaeda, and concluded only that there was no proof of Iraqi involvement in al Qaeda terrorist attacks against American interests. Details, details.

1 Is "sexifully" a word?

2 "... concluded only that there was no proof of Iraqi involvement in al Qaeda terrorist attacks against American interests. "

And let's remember that due to compartmentalization within terrorist organizations, where one cell doesn't know what others are involved in, most of al-Q is also 'innocent' of plotting to attack on 9-11. Most al-Q members did not know about, and did not contribute, to that operation. In fact, most of the actual hijackers did not know about that operation until the morning of.

So I guess we shouldn't have been shooting at all those innocent non-attackers merely on 'guilt by association'....?
