    Yes.
    That was the UN putting its 'appoval' on the agreement signed on 3-3-91.
    How good of them.

    June 1 (Bloomberg) -- Former Vice President Dick Cheney disavowed intelligence he once cited to suggest that then-Iraq dictator Saddam Hussein collaborated with al-Qaeda to stage the Sept. 11 attacks.

    Cheney said today that information by the Central Intelligence Agency of collaboration between Iraq and al-Qaeda on Sept. 11 “turned out not to be true.” Still, Cheney said a longstanding relationship existed between Hussein and terrorist groups, including al-Qaeda, that justified the U.S. invasion of Iraq in 2003.

    “I thought it was strong at the time and I still feel so today,” Cheney said at a National Press Club lunch in Washington. “There was a relationship between al-Qaeda and Iraq that stretched back 10 years. That’s not something I made up.” Citing 2002 Senate testimony by George Tenet, then the CIA director, he said, “We know for a fact that Saddam Hussein was a state sponsor of terrorism.”

    On whether Hussein helped al-Qaeda carry out the 2001 terrorist attacks, Cheney said, “I do not believe, and I have never seen any evidence, that he was involved in 9/11.”

    On whether Hussein helped al-Qaeda carry out the 2001 terrorist attacks, Cheney said, “I do not believe, and I have never seen any evidence, that he was involved in 9/11.”

    I'm telling you folks this guy is pathetic..now that investigations are progressing and information is coming out in reguards to the Bush Administrations apparent motivatons for torturing people Cheney comes out and makes this stunning admission..why now?

    Re: Cheney Says There Was No Iraq Link to 9/11 Attacks

    The post is in English, and the descritptions of the threat are plain.
    Please show me where you outlined what this threat was.

    Show this to be true.
    1. There was no treaty between the US and Iraq; the cease-fire agreement was in the form of a security council resolution.
    2. The US was not being threatened in any way.

    Show that the resolution you cited remains relevant.
    Show that it doesn't.

    You've been show that a cease-fire was signed between the earring parties directly, seperate from any UN action to that effect.
    Yes, a UN cease-fire was signed by both parties. This was a cease-fire with the UN and not the United States, and it was specifically UNSCR687. Now, unless you know of a separate cease-fire agreement between the US and Iraq, then you are blatantly wrong.

    You don't have to like this, but you should accept it.

    Heck, I'll do you one better -- I'll link you to a 1992 statement by the Security Council that says Iraq was already violating the terms of the cease-fire.

    Security Council Says Iraq Violating Cease-Fire Terms

    The cease-fire was ratified as UN SC Res 687.
    Because the cease-fire agreement was with the UN, through UNSCR687, and not with the United States, only the UN Security Council had the power to authorize the use of force, which never happened.

    Therefore, whether or not Iraq violated UNSCR687 is irrelevant to the issue of the US invasion.

    If you can't read the plain englsih, let me know what language you CAN read, and I will try to have it translated.

    1. There was no treaty between the US and Iraq; the cease-fire agreement was between Iraq and the UN.
    Show this to be true, especially given that the was a cease-fire signed on 3-3-91

    2. The US was not being threatened in any way.
    Your saying so doesn't make it so; those that know better than you and that have the power to make that determination disagree wirh your position.
    So, your statement here holds no water.

    Show that doesn't.
    No...
    Your claim is that it remains relevant thru March 2003.
    Show that to be true.

    Yes, a UN cease-fire was signed by both parties. This was a cease-fire with the UN and not the United States, and it was specifically UNSCR687. Now, unless you know of a separate cease-fire agreement between the US and Iraq, then you are blatantly wrong.
    '
    I suggest you check the date of UNSCR687 amd the ceae-fire that ended hostilities. You'll see that the cease-fire between the US (et al) and Iraq predates the UN resolution by almost a month.

    Thus, seperate cease-fires.

    You don't have to like this, but you should accept it

    Until you provide a link to a cease-fire agreement between Iraq and the United States, I am going to assume you are lying.

    Your saying so doesn't make it so; those that know better than you and that have the power to make that determination disagree wirh your position.
    You aren't even able to outline what these threats were, instead resorting to saying "I already said it, but I'm not showing you where!"

    Cheney is like the "wicked witch of the west" riding on a broom, blowing smoke, and spelling out letters in the sky that clearly say "Surrender Obama".

    He is one evil bastard.

    The terms were set forth in Res 686 and signed by the US, et al, and Iraq on 3/3/91. It was formalized in Res 687 in April.

    He's scared to death that 1) he will someday be tried for war crimes and/or 2) is so conceited that he's worrying about his legacy. So, he is trying to rewrite history. As if any of us could be brainwashed as easily as Bush was to the point where we attach his puppet strings to our limbs ourselves.

    Cheney has run out of puppets. He is very worried indeed.
    Thank You Barack Obama for Restoring Honor To The Presidency.
    President Obama will rank as one of our greatest presidents!
