Cheney - No link between Iraq and 9/11

ArticleFormer Vice President Dick Cheney says there was “never any evidence” that Saddam Hussein’s Iraq played any role in the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks on New York and Washington.

“On the question of whether or not Iraq was involved in 9/11, there was never any evidence to prove that,” Cheney said during an interview Monday night with Fox News’ Greta Van Susteren.

“There was some reporting early on, for example, that Mohammed Atta had met with a senior Iraqi intelligence official,” Cheney said. “But that was never borne out.”

In a 2003 interview on NBC’s “Meet the Press,” Cheney said that “the Czechs alleged that Mohamed Atta, the lead attacker, met in Prague with a senior Iraqi intelligence official five months before the attack.”

But Cheney added, “We’ve never been able to develop any more of that yet, either in terms of confirming it or discrediting it. We just don’t know.”

Cheney said Monday that former CIA Director George Tenet brought to the Bush White House information pertaining to potential links between the hijacker and Iraq as “it became available.” But Cheney pointed out that Tenet “did say and did testify that there was an ongoing relationship between al Qaeda and Iraq, but no proof that Iraq was involved in 9/11.”

What do you think this guy will go down in history for?

Im gonna say the pure bullshit that followed him everywhere he went.

hopefully as being the only 1st former American politician to be hanged for war crimes. Engaged in aggressive war for profit? check Ordered Humans rights abuses during the above? check Lied under oath in order to instigate the war? check.

This guy has all the qualifications that the US has lined foreign leaders against the wall for. He'll skate of course. thats how hypocrisy works.

The irony is he used to make quite a lot of sense. Whether it's just that the desire to save his arse stopped him from speaking up later on or whether it's some sort of neural degeneration I don't know or care.

While 9/11 was ONE of the reasons it was by far the only. There were the 17 sanctions against Saddam, Saddam was shooting at US and other UN planes in the no- fly zone which he signed during the "truce" to allow.

At the time the thought of WMD's. The truth is they(Bush and Cheney didn't have a clue). Saddam was playing games with the inspectors. He was talking about going back into Kawait.... oh yea and then there's the oil.....that's why we were paying over $4 a gallon.

if by 'UN' you mean USAF and RAF planes conducting no fly zone coverage that was neither specified by the UN nor sanctioned by it. Actually the UN was quite against the no fly zone policy put forth by the US because they claimed it would escalate tensions as US encroachment over Iraqi territory would lead to bombing and eventually war. good thing that never panned out oh wait....
