Cheney reasserts al-Qaida-Saddam link

WASHINGTON – Vice President  Dick Cheney repeated his assertions of al-Qaida links to  Saddam Hussein‘s  Iraq on Thursday as the Defense Department released a report citing more evidence that the prewar government did not cooperate with the terrorist group.

Cheney contended that al-Qaida was operating in Iraq before the March 2003 invasion led by U.S. forces and that terrorist Abu Musab al-Zarqawi was leading the Iraqi branch of al-Qaida. Others in al-Qaida planned the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks.

“He took up residence there before we ever launched into Iraq, organized the al-Qaida operations inside Iraq before we even arrived on the scene and then, of course, led the charge for Iraq until we killed him last June,” Cheney told radio host Rush Limbaugh during an interview. “As I say, they were present before we invaded Iraq.”

However, a declassified  Pentagon report released Thursday said that interrogations of the deposed Iraqi leader and two of his former aides as well as seized Iraqi documents confirmed that the terrorist organization and the Saddam government were not working together before the invasion.

The Sept. 11 Commission’s 2004 report also found no evidence of a collaborative relationship between Saddam and  Osama bin Laden‘s al-Qaida network during that period.

Sen. Carl Levin (news, bio, voting record), D-Mich., the chairman of the  Senate Armed Services Committee, had requested that the Pentagon declassify the report prepared by acting Defense Department Inspector General Thomas F. Gimble. In a statement Thursday, Levin said the declassified document showed why a Defense Department investigation had concluded that some Pentagon prewar intelligence work was inappropriate.

The report, which had been released in summary form in February, said that former Pentagon policy chief Douglas J. Feith had acted inappropriately but not illegally in reviewing prewar intelligence. Levin has claimed that Feith’s intelligence assessment was wrong and distorted but nevertheless formed part of the basis on which  President Bush took the country to war.

Although Feith’s assessment in mid-2002 offered several examples of cooperation between Saddam’s government and al-Qaida, the report said, the  CIA had concluded months earlier that no evidence supported the existence of significant or long-term relationships.

One HUGE reason I don’t want Bush Impeached is …. then I’d be plagued with half of Bush’s brain (BIG DICK Cheney ~ Karl Rove being the other half) for the next year or so.

Can you believe this: here’s BIG DICK, STILL running around the country vomiting these LIES and ‘Tall Tales of Fantasy’! This despite the Pentagon’s assertions to the contrary; this despite the Intelligence (?) Community assertions to the contrary; this despite Saddam’s FACTUAL hatred for al Qaida!

You People have been ‘played’ for so long now, that kats like Cheney believe you’re as stupid and dim witted as they are!! And why not: after all, you kats were out there waving Old Glory and singing “God Bless America” when they told you Saddam had WMDs (which were never there); that Saddam was an imminent THREAT to the U.S. and Britain (which he never was); and that Islam was a Terrorist Religion that somehow was a THREAT to Western Culture & Values!

Either the above or simply wrap your Mind around the FACT that BIG DICK Cheney is DELUSIONAL like his puppet George.

And some of ya have the audacity to ask:

“I don’t think Obama has the experience to be President.”

P-l-e-a-s-e.
