Link Excerpt: The Bush bastards permitted the world's most notorious terrorist mastermind to escape because they needed additional justification to invade Iraq, according to a Democratic lawmaker from New York. Rep. Maurice Hinchey (D-NY) leveled the allegation during an interview Monday afternoon. "Look what happened with regard to our invasion into Afghanistan, how we apparently intentionally let bin Laden get away," he said. "How we intentionally did not follow the Taliban and al-Qaeda as they were escaping. That was done by the previous administration because they knew very well that if they would capture al-Qaeda, there would be no justification for an invasion in Iraq." "They deliberately let Osama bin Laden get away?" asked an incredulous David Shuster. "You really believe that?" "Yes, I do," Hinchey replied. "There's no question about that." Wow! - a Democrat with a set of stones!
