    Default Bush acknowledges absence of Al Qaeda in pre-occupation Iraq with a 'so what?'

    Reality-based observers have long known that the Bush administration's attempts to connect al Qaeda with pre-invasion Iraq have been nothing more than a campaign of misinformation. Al Qaeda had no presence in Iraq prior to the 2003 invasion, and even afterward, the so-called "al Qaeda in Iraq" never amounted to anything more than a "microscopic terrorist organization" with "850 full time fighters." But regardless of the facts, one theme has been constant from this administration. The presence of al Qaeda, terrorists, "special groups," and foreign fighters (typically from Iran) is sold as justification for the invasion and occupation, when it is actually the result of the invasion and occupation.

    That's what makes this part of the interview between President George W. Bush and ABC News' Martha Raddatz, highlighted by Ali Frick at Think Progress, so extraordinary.

    BUSH: One of the major theaters against al Qaeda turns out to have been Iraq. This is where al Qaeda said they were going to take their stand. This is where al Qaeda was hoping to take-


    RADDATZ: But not until after the U.S. invaded.

    BUSH: Yeah, that's right. So what? The point is that al Qaeda said they're going to take a stand. Well, first of all in the post-9/11 environment Saddam Hussein posed a threat. And then upon removal, al Qaeda decides to take a stand.

    Wow. "That's right. So what?" That's how he admits that the repeatedly mentioned links between the September 11 attacks, al Qaeda, and Iraq were just manipulations?

    I believe President Bush just threw both his shoes at our intelligence. Duck!Bush Acknowledges Absence Of Al Qaeda In Pre-Occupation Iraq With A 'So What?'
    God, he really is a clueless dickhead who doesn't give a flying fuck about anything but his own personal agenda.

    "They're becoming defeated."

    And I'm sure all of the families of the troops who have been killed or injured in Iraq think a 'so what' is a perfect response.

    And I'm sick of him taking credit for there being no more attacks since 9/11. There weren't any attacks here BEFORE 9/11 and the one that happened was on his watch because he chose to ignore all of the intelligence about Al-Queda planning an attack.

    Has anyone else noticed recently that Bush seems to grind his teeth a lot? Is he sniffing again?

    There's really nothing left to say about him. He's beneath contempt.

    But I really like Martha Raddatz.

    Yeah, so what? YOu only lied and misled 150 million (idiots) people, went to war for those lies, killed about 4 to 10,000 US troops and untold hundreds of thousands of iraqis.. but so what, eh?

    Fuck you. I hope you die the most horrible death imaginable. Anal cancer maybe.

    He's been sniffing Dick "Satan" Cheney's ass the last 8 years.

    Too bad Cheney wasn't around when the shoes went flying.

    I wonder if they were Nikes... Just Do It.

    Shoot, if Cheney would've been there, he woulda shot the guy. Or someone would've sceamed "PULL!", and he woulda shot the shoes in mid-air.
