If you happen to have a moment of instability this evening and decide to watch ABC at all, much less the miniseries that falsely depicts Clinton Administration Officials letting Osama Bin Laden escape...Remember this:
It was the President of the United States that let Bin Laden escape. But not before 9-11...After. That would be George Bush, the president who called off the hunt for Bin Laden in Afghanistan. They had him...And let him go!
The CIA reports that they have a video tape of Bin Laden walking on a trail heading towards Afghanistan. They have Special Ops troops and CIA counterparts in a paramilitary division hunting for Bin Laden and are hot on his trail. Flynt L. Leverett, Middle East expert at the National Security Council expressed outrage that Bush pulled them out of the country, saying...
"I was appalled...It's very likely that Bin Laden would be dead or in American custody if we hadn't done that."
So what do republican apologists do when presented with the truth? They spend $40 million creating a work of fiction to mislead America.
Shortly after Bin Laden was spotted walking toward Afghanistan, Bush pulled our people off the hunt, claiming that they were going to be needed in Iraq. He said that the CIA had proof that Al Qaeda was in Iraq working with Saddam. Last Friday, The Senate Report was issued that said a false link to Al Qaeda was "inserted" in a CIA report inorder to justify the Iraq war.
Let's check the instant replay on that one...A false link to Al Qaeda was "inserted" in a CIA report in order to justify the Iraq war. A 2005 CIA report explicitly states that Saddam's government "did not have a relationship, harbor, or turn a blind eye toward" al-Qaida operative Abu Musab al-Zarqawi or his associates. So ...States an AP report by Jim Abrams.
The Iraq war simply never was about Terrorism...9-11...or anything else except Oil and lying and treason.
