    "I do not believe and have never seen any evidence to confirm that [Mr. Hussein] was involved in 9/11," Mr. Cheney told an audience gathered for lunch at the National Press Club in Washington. "We had that reporting for a while, [but] eventually it turned out not to be true."

    Ya cause he only said that repeatedly before the invasion of Iraq. As did the President and the Military and the Intelligence.

    Iraq was invaded for misdeeds Iraq did, not because of 9/11. That is one of the biggest lies ever told, that we invaded Iraq claiming they had anything to do with 9/11.

    I knew not to come in here and read bullshit like what you just typed.

    We know waaaayyyy tooooo much information for you to get away with this lie.

    They even tried to get Powell to suggest a connection when he went to the UN and Powell refused.

    Are you stupid or a liar?

    Bingo

    All that has to be read is the actual resolution.. all of the reasonings were given directly in there.... it has been known for a long time, and stated for a long time, that Iraq's justification was not Iraq but indeed things including (but not limited to) the violations of the cease-fire agreement

    But you will still have puppets and assholes like bobo (and the other extreme partisan lefties) that will claim otherwise until their dying (and lying) breath

    violations of the cease-fire agreement?

    Not enough to invade. Sorry, but you are a liar or a fool. Bush needed more ammo, so he made up WMD's and a link to 9-11.

    YOU'RE A FOOL BOY!!!

    When asked directly, Bush admitted there was no connection either, but that didn't stop Bush and Cheney from implying that there was a connection and the implication was strong enough to accomplish their goal. A huge number of people still believe there is a connection.

    Well that's good to know. Now can you show us a link where Cheney said there WAS a connection between Iraq and 9/11?

    Do we need to? You don't remember? :cuckoo: or :eusa_liar:???

    Recalling that he had told Russert two years ago that he knew of no Iraqi link to the attack, Cheney said Sunday, "Subsequent to that, we've learned a couple of things."

    The Vice President contended that more recent evidence indicates "that there was a relationship between Iraq and al-Qaeda that stretched back through most of the decade of the '90s, that it involved training, for example."

    Though he did not specifically mention the South Baghdad terrorist training camp Salman Pak, where radical Islamists rehearsed 9/11-style hijackings on a Soviet-era Tupelov 154 airliner, Cheney noted that "al-Qaeda sent personnel to Baghdad to get trained on the systems that are involved."

    Cheney also cited reports of a meeting between lead 9/11 hijacker Mohamed Atta and an Iraqi in intelligence agent in Prague just months before the attacks, saying that U.S. intelligence has not yet been able confirm or discredit the information.

    In perhaps his most startling remarks, the vice president became the first White House official to argue that there was a link between Saddam Hussein and al Qaeda's attempt to destroy the World Trade Center in 1993, telling Russert:

    "We know, for example, in connection with the original World Trade Center bombing in '93 that one of the bombers was Iraqi, returned to Iraq after the attack of '93. And we've learned subsequent to that, since we went into Baghdad and got into the intelligence files, that this individual probably also received financing from the Iraqi government as well as safe haven."

    The vice president might have also mentioned that Ramzi Yousef, who masterminded the 1993 attack and whose laptop computer contained plans to crash U.S. airliners into the World Trade Center and Pentagon, entered the U.S. with an Iraqi passport.

    After his capture in 1995, the FBI flew Yousef over the World Trade Center and reminded him that his plan to destroy the Twin Towers had not succeeded. His reported response - "Not yet."

    Last Wednesday Russert insisted to radio host Don Imus, "No one will say there was a direct involvement of Saddam Hussein in Sept. 11. ... There's no direct link that can be substantiated." The full exchange between Russert and Vice President Cheney on the evidence tying Iraq to 9/11 went like this:

    RUSSERT: The Washington Post asked the American people about Saddam Hussein, and this is what they said: 69 percent said he was involved in the September 11 attacks. Are you surprised by that?

    CHENEY: No. I think it's not surprising that people make that connection.

    RUSSERT: But is there a connection?

    CHENEY: We don't know. You and I talked about this two years ago. I can remember you asking me this question just a few days after the original attack. At the time I said no, we didn't have any evidence of that. Subsequent to that, we've learned a couple of things. We learned more and more that there was a relationship between Iraq and al-Qaeda that stretched back through most of the decade of the '90s, that it involved training, for example, on BW and CW, that al-Qaeda sent personnel to Baghdad to get trained on the systems that are involved. The Iraqis providing bomb-making expertise and advice to the al-Qaeda organization.

    We know, for example, in connection with the original World Trade Center bombing in '93 that one of the bombers was Iraqi, returned to Iraq after the attack of '93. And we've learned subsequent to that, since we went into Baghdad and got into the intelligence files, that this individual probably also received financing from the Iraqi government as well as safe haven.

    Now, is there a connection between the Iraqi government and the original World Trade Center bombing in '93? We know, as I say, that one of the perpetrators of that act did, in fact, receive support from the Iraqi government after the fact. With respect to 9/11, of course, we've had the story that's been public out there. The Czechs alleged that Mohamed Atta, the lead attacker, met in Prague with a senior Iraqi intelligence official five months before the attack, but we've never been able to develop anymore of that yet either in terms of confirming it or discrediting it. We just don't know. [End of Excerpt]

    Cheney Lectures Russert on Iraq-9/11 Link

    Did you also forget that you yourself argued that Saddam was connected to 9-11?

    I can't wait for you guys to forget/deny that you approved torture.

    Ummm ... idiot ... Bush said Iraq had nothing to do with 9/11 on 9/13. Trying to re-live the 8 years of the past administration day by day does NOTHING to keep people with functioning minds from watching what the CURRENT administration is doing.

    You are the same morons that whined like little babies the second Clinton's name was mentioned beginning the day Bush was declared winner of the election.

    Try addressing the current fascist administration. Deflective smokescreen denied.

    LOLOL God Bless the simple. You basically draw erroneous conclusions of the conversation and then attempt to put words in Cheney's mouth?
    I hardly see where Dick Cheney is to be blamed for your inability to follow a complex conversation involving multiple subjects.
