Free Pass for Bush

Tuesday, September 30th, 2003 · No Comments

Anna Quindlen has an excellent commentary in the latest (October 6, 2003) issue of Newsweek (Free Pass for the President): “The most underplayed story of the past month was the one about the events of September 11 and Saddam Hussein.

“There is no direct link between the two. This despite the fact that George W. Bush and the members of his administration have labored tirelessly to suggest one ever since they decided to invade Iraq. This despite the fact that they’ve been spectacularly successful at convincing American citizens of this fiction: more than two out of three believe the Iraqi leader was personally responsible for the terrorist attacks. ‘No evidence,’ the president finally was forced to admit publicly, that this was so.”
