    He was referring to the AQ and other Islamofascist insurgents, not the pre-invasion government of Iraq/saddam.


    Not sure how this supports your claim:



    Dont see anything from Bush making the claim.

    When you get something, let me know.
    Of course there is no direct quote, but there is much supporting the attempts to link the two in the minds of the American people, without directly saying it. It is called plausible deniability.

    Apparently, you don't know that the two words mean the same thing.

    "But Bush's Yale transcript shows that he was a C student. He got particularly poor grades in political science and economics. In his freshman year -- the only year for which The New Yorker obtained rankings -- Bush was in the 21st percentile of his class. In other words, 79 percent of the students had better grades than he did. Indeed, when he gave a speech at Yale's 2001 commencement ceremony, he joked, "To the C students I say, you, too, can be president of the United States.""
    Show how this supports the claim that we "failed his way" through Harvard/Yale. Nothing here makes mention of him failing anything.

    "At the time Bush's application landed at Harvard Business School, Bush Senior -- who had recovered from his defeated bids for U.S. Senate in 1964 and 1970 and was by then a former congressman from Texas, former U.S. ambassador to the United Nations and former U.S. diplomatic liaison to China -- was chairman of the Republican National Committee. Might Senior's fame have played a role?"
    Again:
    Show how this supports the claim that we "failed his way" through Harvard/Yale. Nothing here makes mention of him failing anything.

    I particularly like those parts.
    I particularly like how your abject and wanton failure to support your claim so very clearly illustrates your partisan bigotry.

    So, you admit that Bush/Cheney never made the claim that Iraq/Saddam was involved in 9-11.
    Thank you.

    It is called plausible deniability.
    No... its called a willful inference, where you hear what you want to hear, or suggestive interpretation, where you hear what other people tell you should hear.

    Are you actually arguing that they did not try to make that connection between the two in the minds of the public? You know that they did indeed.

    ..but neither did Russert, who could have asked Bush to explain a letter he sent to Congress shortly after the start of the Iraq war, in which he explicitly linked Iraq to 9-11.
    There you go.

    Again: Suggestive interpretation.

    Nothing that I read heard or saw from anyone in the administration led me to anythig close to the conclusion that Iraq was involved in 9-11.

    Given the statements that were made, I cannot imagine how anyone with any mastery of the English language could reach such a conclusion.

    I did not say I fell for it, but perhaps you are giving the voting public more props than they deserve. I still say, though, that intentially try to make the connection to gain support. Iraq, in of itself really had nothing to do with the War on Terror, unless it was to create a base of operations in th Middle East. I think, this was the actual reason for invasion and the rest smoke-screen and mirrors. Sadly, if posed as the actual reason, it would more than likely garnered zero support.
