Now let’s compare reality with the parallel universe Democrats are living in.
The latest in a stream of eye-opening Iraqi documents shows Saddam Hussein’s regime was planning suicide attacks on U.S. interests six months before 9-11.”
Ted Kennedy - “There was no imminent threat. This was made up in Texas, announced in January to the Republican leadership that war was going to take place and was going to be good politically. This whole thing was a fraud.”
Saddam, in a tape made in 2000, talks with Iraqi scientists about his plans to build a nuclear device. He discusses Iraq’s plasma separation program — an advanced uranium-enrichment technique completely missed by U.N. inspectors.
An Iraqi intelligence document, released just two weeks ago, describes a February 1995 meeting between Saddam’s spies and Osama bin Laden. During that meeting, bin Laden offered to conduct “joint operations” with Iraq. Saddam subsequently ordered his aides to “develop the relationship” with the al-Qaida leader.
John Kerry - “Iraq was a profound diversion from [the war on terror] and the battle against our greatest enemy, Osama bin Laden and the terrorists.”
A fax, sent on June 6, 2001, shows conclusively that Saddam’s government provided financial aid to Abu Sayyaf guerrillas in the Philippines. Abu Sayyaf is an al-Qaida offshoot co-founded by bin Laden’s brother-in-law.
Nancy Pelosi - “For nearly three years, the Bush Administration has misrepresented the depth of the relationship between Saddam Hussein’s Iraq and al Qaeda.”
I think I finally figured out where the Democrats are getting their brilliant political strategies.
