Bush Still Trying To Link Iraq And September 11th

Speaking in Cleveland yesterday, president George W Bush, took his audience through his warped logic that links Iraq and the September 11th terrorist attacks in his mind.

"al Qaeda is doing most of the spectacular bombings, trying to incite sectarian violence," Bush told a business group in Cleveland, Ohio. "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."

As this report points out, the so-called "al Qaeda in Iraq" insurgent group came into being after the war began in 2003 and, at least initially, was not linked to Osama bin Laden's group.

Senior U.S. intelligence, which obviously excludes Bush, consider the sectarian violence between Shi'ites and Sunnis a more serious threat the the stability of Iraq than the al Qaeda movement.

Expect another round of this fear mongering from Bush as Congress begins another attempt to change the course of the war.
