Former Vice President Dick Cheney continues traveling the nation spouting his claims the invasion of Iraq was justified because Iraq possessed WMD and it had links to Osama bin Laden. When asked why the WMD have not yet been uncovered, Dick emphasizes just because they have not yet been found, that doesn’t mean they never will. FBI interviews with Saddam Hussein have just been released. Saddam said he allowed the world to believe he had weapons of mass destruction because he was worried about Iran and wanted to frighten them into avoiding an invasion of his country. He also termed Osama bin Laden as a “zealot” and never had any dealings or connections to the man or his organization. Ironically, he told the FBI that he was so frightened of an Iranian invasion that he was prepared to seek a “security agreement with the United States” to avoid such an outcome.
We can only wonder how Rush Limbaugh and Ann Coulter and all the boys and girls at Fox News who had daily reports concerning the famous WMD and commentators like Bill Bennett who never hesitated to inform the American public President Bush was correct about Saddam Hussein’s ties with al-Qaeda and his connection with the 9/11 bombing.
Does anyone believe Fox News will carry reports how they misled Americans. Or, should we more accurately say, how they lied to the American public?
