Cheney Admits He Lied Us Into War in Iraq: "No Iraq Link to 9/11 Attacks"

And, no one in the media really noticed. Now, he didn't say, "I lied." But what he did do was say he never believed there was a Saddam-9/11 link, which is exactly the same thing.

Now think about that for a minute. He just admitted there was no link, hence, he lied us into War.

Bloomberg has this Gem From Dick:

“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.”

DKos' henry porter reminds us that:
"...as recently as 2007, Cheney was still asserting Saddam and al Qaida were actively working together. Even though Pentagon reports denied his claim. As the linked report notes, the mistaken reporting didn't originate in the CIA... it originated with DOUG FEITH who worked at Cheney and Wolfowitz's behest in the Office of Special Plans."
