Some Folks Didn't Get The Memo

A new Zogby International poll finds that 85% of US troops in Iraq said the US mission is mainly "to retaliate for Saddam's role in the 9-11 attacks."

Yet, Sept. 17, 2003, President Bush stated "[w]e have no evidence that Saddam Hussein was involved in the September 11th attacks." (BBC link)

Moreover, Bush may have none as early as 10 days after 9-11-01.

The Sept. 11 Commission found no "collaborative relationship" between Iraq and al Qaeda.

Rumsfeld has "not seen any indication," Cheney says he knew of no evidence, and Rice says "[w]e never claimed that Saddam Hussein had either direction or control of 9-11."

Christian Science Monitor story on the future impact of the false link back in March 2003.

On the bright side, 72% of American troops serving in Iraq think the US should exit the country within the next year, and nearly one in four say the troops should leave immediately.
