Whaaaaa?

But... I thought that there was already proof that linked Iraq to Al Queda. That's why we're bombing them, right? RIGHT?

Uh huh. That's what I thought.

I hope that our policy is not to just start blowing up everywhere that terrorist train, as the article suggests... because I still have friends in Arizona, where a couple of the 9/11 hijackers learned to fly.

One of my dearest friends was a student alongside one of the hijackers at a particular pilot school down south.

He said he was a nice enough guy. He never would have guessed.

Scary.

What's your friend's name? Which pilot school? One of the hijackers trained at the same school where I got my pilot's license, except I think he might have been there just slightly after me.

Smoking Gun?
Notice that they are looking in the camps run by "Ansar al-Islam, a Kurdish radical Islamic group." This group is a Kurdish group. The Kurds are our friends, remember. As we know, there are "good" Kurds and "bad" Kurds. Just like there are "good" dictators, and "evil" dictators. The article fails to explicitly mention that Saddam has not had any control over Kurdish areas since the first Gulf War. So if Al Qaida were there, Saddam probably had nothing to do with it. They also fail to mention that Al Qaida hates Saddam, and Saddam has been stifling Islamic radicals in Iraq for 30 years. Details, details. We just need an ex post facto reason to invade, and that'll make everything all right. Apperently "connecting the dots" translates into "making shit up."
