Cheney’s Lies

Wednesday, October 6th, 2004 · No Comments

Dick Cheney, October 5, 2004: “The senator has got his facts wrong. I have not suggested there’s a connection between Iraq and 9/11, but there’s clearly an established Iraqi track record with terror.”

Dick Cheney, September 13, 2003: “If we’re successful in Iraq … then we will have struck a major blow right at the heart of the base, if you will, the geographic base of the terrorists who had us under assault now for many years, but most especially on 9/11.”

(Bold mine.)

In other words, as the Washington Post puts it in the same story: “Cheney argued that new evidence found in Iraq proved more ties between Hussein and Osama bin Laden’s al Qaeda organization, and he argued that Iraq was the ‘geographic base’ for the perpetrators of the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks.”
