"Now flash forward a year or so and you start hearing the administration mention Al Qaeda and global terrorism in the same breath as Iraq when there is virtually no established link between the two. Over and over again, Al Qaeda...terrorism...Iraq. The administration was forming a link in people's minds between terrorism and Iraq for the purpose of tapping the national sentiment built up around terrorism after 9/11 to gain support for their desire to invade Iraq."

From www.factcheck.org

"It's a matter of record that Bush and Cheney repeatedly accused Saddam
Hussein of aiding al Qaeda terrorists and providing them a base, but
stopped short of accusing him of aiding the September 11 attacks
specifically."

And they were right about aiding al Qaeda terrorists and providing them a base.

All this other nonsense about melding words together is ridiculous. I remember when Ariana Huffington said, "We went into this war based on the lie that Saddam Hussein was responsible for 9/11", which was, of course, a big lie about a non-existent lie.
