Cheney Didn't Put Up
Salon's War Room has an excellent note on the recent Cheney falsehoods. He has reasserted the relationship between Hussein and al-Qaeda, recently discredited by the 9-11 Commission. Salon points to this Los Angeles Times article, which quotes Al Felzenberg, spokesman for the Sept. 11 commission: "We believe we have seen all the information the vice president has seen, and stand by the staff statement released at the last hearing." Remember, Cheney said he "probably" had more information than the 9-11 Commission, part of the reason he insisted there was a stronger collaborative relationship between Hussein and al-Qaeda. The 9-11 Commissioners politely requested this additional information. If anything was given, the 9-11 Commission Staff certainly doesn't seem to think it's significant.
