There He Goes Again

Cheney: Iraq Tied to al-Qaida

ORLANDO -- Vice President Dick Cheney said Monday that Saddam Hussein had "long-established ties" with al-Qaida, an assertion that has been repeatedly challenged by some policy experts and lawmakers.

"He was a patron of terrorism," Cheney said of Hussein during a speech before The James Madison Institute, a conservative think-tank based in Florida. "He had long-established ties with al-Qaida."

Cheney offered no details to back up his claim of a link between Hussein and al-Qaida.

Man, when will Dick Cheney learn to stop making such ridiculous statement in public? He tried this nonsense last September when he said that there was no evidence suggesting Saddam Hussein wasn't involved with 9-11 (implying that Saddam might have been responsible), a claim so outlandish that George W. Bush backed away from it. If Cheney really is the brains behind the Bush Administration then there is no wonder why everything is a mess.
