Wow, according to the NY Times, another acknowledgement of misleading by our “Fearless Leader”.
Mr. Cheney, on “Meet the Press” on NBC-TV, was asked about polls that showed that a majority of Americans believed that Mr. Hussein had been involved in the attacks.
“I think it’s not surprising that people make that connection,” said Mr. Cheney, who leads the hawkish wing of the Bush administration. Asked whether the connection existed, Mr. Cheney said, “We don’t know.”
He described Mr. Hussein’s reported connections to Al Qaeda, connections that American intelligence analysts say were not very deep.
Mr. Bush, asked by a reporter today about that statement, said, “No, we’ve had no evidence that Saddam Hussein was involved with September the 11th,” a far more definitive statement than the vice president’s.
