Now Playing: "Knowing Me, Knowing You" by ABBA
Says The Power Line's John Hinderaker:
The mainstream media continue their faux outrage over the link that President Bush drew between September 11 and the Iraq war in his speech Tuesday night; here is one of countless examples. This is, frankly, mystifying; as one of our readers pointed out yesterday, the connection between the Iraq war and September 11 was made explicit in the text of the Congressional resolution that authorized military action in Iraq.Go ahead and read them. At least for a few hours there, the lying assholes in Congress who are [mad] at Bush right now thought that there was a link between the Saddamites and the atrocities of 11 September 2001.
One would think that administration critics like Joe Biden, John Kerry, Harry Reid and Chuck Schumer would remember what was in the resolution, since they voted for it. I can understand why it would be convenient for the Democrats to forget that the resolution that authorized the Iraq war specifically and repeatedly linked the rationale for that war to the September 11 attacks. It is not so clear why mainstream reporters and commentators are so willing to share the Democrats' amnesia.Does anyone remember how we first took on Hitler's Third Reich? By invading North Africa. If only we had sent in more troops and sent them into Fortress Europa from the start, all our boys would have been home in a couple of months and basking in the light of victory! Those idiots Roosevelt and Marshall and Eisenhower. What incompetence!
