In tonight’s speech, President George W. Bush offended millions of Americans. He did it repeatedly throughout a speech that lasted slightly more than 30 minutes. How? In a speech about the war in Iraq, Bush mentioned the events of September 11th, 2001 a whopping 8 times, sometimes specifically linking the two. In what has come to be called “playing the 9/11 card,” Bush repeatedly
jabbed his finger in the wounds tugged on the heartstrings of not only the millions of people who were in New York, D.C. and Pennsylvania on September 11th, but of the billions of people around the world affected by those attacks.
For the six or seven people out there who don’t yet know, there was NO link between Saddam Hussein and Osama Bin Laden. There was NO link between the 9/11 hijackers and Iraq. The War in Iraq has NOTHING to do with that tragic day in 2001.
Clearly, Bush doesn’t remember his words of September 18th, 2003 when he said: “”No, we’ve had no evidence that Saddam Hussein was involved with September the 11th,” according to The Seattle Post-Intelligencer.
