Subject: RE: BS: Maliki doesn't want more U.S. troops
Bush continues to make the connection EVEN NOW, when he talks about taking the fight (of the war on terrorism) to the enemy ie. in IRaq.

if there is no connection between Saddam/Iraq and 9/11 why even say that.
Anyway Dickie youre flogging a dead horse- most Americans now see they were misled , that Iraq was a mistake (with more and more Republicans lining up against Bush) and the overwhelming view even of the troops is that the so-called militarily meaningless 'surge' of 21500 troops is not going to accomplish anything (other than possibly leave the situation in the next administration)..

you can nitpick the past all you want but the issue is long decided.

well I guess you can say there is a connection betn Iraq and Alqaeda,
(what with Abu Ghraib and gitmo) its served as a good recruitment tool for Alqaeda ,but that was only after the US invaded.
