Video: Fox News

In an interview with Greta Van Susteren, Dick Cheney admitted there was never any evidence that Iraq was involved in the attacks on September 11, 2001.

“On the question of whether or not Iraq was involved in 9-11, there was never any evidence to prove that…”

You read that headline correctly. Dick Cheney actually admitted Monday (on Fox News) that the United States never had any evidence of Iraqi involvement in the 9/11 attacks. Back in 2003, it was a far different story seeping from the lips of Dick Cheney. He didn’t actually come out and say Saddaam pulled the trigger, but he certainly left that impression in the capable hands of the mainstream media for their saber-rattling pleasure. It looked something like this on September 16, 2003, even in the dubious Boston Globe:

But Cheney left that possibility wide open in a nationally televised interview two days ago, claiming that the administration is learning “more and more” about connections between Al Qaeda and Iraq before the Sept. 11 attacks. The statement surprised some analysts and officials who have reviewed intelligence reports from Iraq.Anne E. Kornblut and Bryan Bender

As Raw Story puts it, this comes just a bit late for the 4,308 U.S. military personnel killed in Iraq. That says nothing of the 100,000-ish Iraqi civilians that have died as a result of our unnecessary invasion. I guess we just add this to the ever-expanding Bush/Cheney dossier at The Hague.
