"We have no evidence that Saddam Hussein was involved with the 11 September attacks."
~~George W. Bush, Sept. 18, 2003
On September 11, Sarah Palin addressed her son's Army unit, which is being deployed to Iraq. From The New York Times:
"You'll be there to defend the innocent from the enemies who planned and carried out and rejoiced in the death of thousands of Americans," she told the soldiers. "America can never go back to that false sense of security that came before September 11, 2001."
Ummm, hadn't she heard about the truth of the situation? Heck, Pres. Bush said that back in 2003, so the information has been out there for a while! The guy was certainly a despotic dictator, but he wasn't reponsible for the WTC attacks. I thought it was common knowledge, but I even read some stuff over the weekend that seemed to attribute the attacks to Saddam.
It seems to me that if you don't know about this, you've been living in a cave down the street from Osama bin Laden.
On a happy note, congratulations to George Takei (who played Lieutenant Sulu in "Star Trek"), who over the weekend married his partner of 21 years. May they live long and prosper!
