What a news day: The Pope comes out with new deadly sins and Gov. Spitzer Swallows is caught in a prostitution ring. Surely some stories are going to get buried. Like this one -
Exhaustive review finds no link between Saddam, al Qaida

WASHINGTON — An exhaustive review of more than 600,000 Iraqi documents that were captured after the 2003 U.S. invasion has found no evidence that Saddam Hussein's regime had any operational links with Osama bin Laden's al Qaida terrorist network.
Probably some left wing liberal media bias study.
The Pentagon-sponsored study of the Iraqi regime's archives found no documents indicating a "direct operational link" between Hussein's Iraq and al Qaida before the invasion.
Pentagon-sponsored!? Oooo, that can't be good. So much for Donald H. Rumsfeld's
"bulletproof" evidence.
So much for Bush tying al Qaida to the ongoing violence in Iraq.
"The same people that attacked us on September the 11th is a crowd that is now bombing people, killing innocent men, women and children, many of whom are Muslims."
And so much for The Short Fuse's assertion
"I have some news. Al Qaida is in Iraq."
And now, back to the whores!

The phrase "Al Qaeda in Iraq" is so classic 1984 Newspeak it is scary.

The airwaves are now so saturated with this phrase that many people believe that "Al Qaeda in Iraq" was always in Iraq and somehow was behind 9/11.

The reality, of course, is that our removal of a militantly secular anti-Wahhabi Ba'atish regime in Iraq opened the door for Al Qaeda to move in.

Al Qaeda is in Iraq because Saddam is not.

Last time I checked, secular Ba'athists didn't kill my neighbors on 9/11.

The sworn enemies of Ba'athism, the fundamentalist Saudi-based Wahhabis in Al Qaeda, killed my neighbors.

Yet for some odd reason the US supports the Wahhabi Saudi regime till this day.

(I wonder what Harrison, Recchia, and Fossella have to say about that).

Anyway, leave it to the neo-cons to toss around the Newspeak "Al Qaeda in Iraq" whenever they need to, like in response to this report that shows that there was no Al Qaeda in Iraq before the war.

Amen. And for those who want to do more than post, there are several local protest events going on next week, around the 5th anniversary of the invasion of Iraq.

One is right in Bay Ridge: a protest at Rep. Fossella's office, at noon on March 19. Fossella has supported Bush's Iraq policy down the line. Do people know that? They should, before they decide to vote for him in the fall.

Another is that same evening: a march co sponsored by MoveOn and Brooklyn for Peace, from Grand Army Plaze down Flatbush to the military recruiting station at Livingston St.

My God, what a crime. So many soldiers, so many innocent Iraqi people have died in this fiasco.

If Elliot Spurtzer has to go, then Chimpy has to go with him.
