On Iraq/9-11 connection, Bush is flipping us all off!
This week's radio address includes the following gem, much exercising lefty bloggers:
We went to war because we were attacked...
It's that fantasy Saddam/Al Qaida connection again. He knows - or his people do - that's it's bunk, but, just to demonstrate for the umpeenth time to the reality-based community their own impotence in the face of his fabulation, he indulges himself again.
There's another interpretation: he's merely saying that the 9/11 attack was a causa sine qua non of the Iraq invasion, which, if that's what he meant, has the merit of being plausible.
Of course, that's not what he meant. And only the lowliest in the WH manipulation machine would think worthwhile the synapse wear necessitated by considering such an evasion.
The trained seals of the Corps may get frisky with Scott McClellan on occasion, but they know not to take things too far. Like calling emperors on their nakedness.
