"Wrong Again" Yes, Indeed. Neo-cons (Radical Rightwing Zionists) just can't give it up. They want to impugn the credibility of the 9/11 Commission's finding that there is "no credible evidence" that Saddam was in any way connected with al-Qaeda, and now suggest that the 9/11 Commission could end up being as doubted as the Warren Commission. But the great bulk of Americans believe the Warren Commission. Only conspiracy nuts have major doubts.
One way people decide whether to believe or disbelieve anything is by checking it against common sense. When you test the premise of a connection between Saddam and al-Qaeda against common sense, you quickly see that it makes no sense, so cannot be believed. Now Americans' suspicions are confirmed by the finding of a nonpartisan 9/11 Commission whose impartiality and patriotism are beyond contention, whose credibility in lite of their impartiality and patriotism cannot be discredited by absolutely unsupported and malicious slander from neo-conservative liars. They've been caught in Big Lies too many times: no WMD, an army that caved in weeks so couldn't possibly ever have endangered us, and now no connection to al-Qaeda. They have no credibility left, so try to destroy the credibility of the 9/11 Commission to divert us from the fact that neo-cons are inveterate, habitual liars. It won't wash.
The majority of Americans now know, and may make plain in November their indignation, that the neo-cons LIED to us to get us to attack a country that never attacked us, never had WMD, and never had ties to al-Qaeda. Why don't the Israel-uber-alles crowd just tell the truth: they wanted us to attack Iraq to protect Israel, not the U.S. Americans can then decide if that was a good enough justification or was a supremely evil con or should that be "neo-con"?
