Eat At Joes

Just a regular Joe who is angry that the USA, the country he loves, is being corrupted and damaged from within and trying to tell his fellow Americans the other half of the story that they don’t get on the TV News.

Bush Claims Reason He Ordered Iraq War was 9-11 Which He Himself Contradicted

President Bush is now once again claiming that the reason he ordered the invasion of Iraq was because of September 11. Ignoring that 15 of the 19 highjackers were Saudis and ZERO of them were Iraqi. Ignoring that the Republican lead September 11 Commission concluded that there were no operational links between Saddam’s Iraq and al Qaeda and that Saddam was not involved with or in any way behind 9-11. Bush himself had to admit this over a year ago when the evidence against Iraq’s involvement in 9-11 was overwhelming and his prior claims to the contrary were presented to him. Now he is once again promoting the lie that he previously promoted. And the US Corporate-Owned News Media is--------SILENT ONCE AGAIN. Some “liberal media” these Corporate-Owned Big Business Media Moguls wield in the US. When will we get a REAL free press in this country? And when will the American People learn of their Leaders Lies and the Media’s Complicity in these lies?

Let's review some of the Bush Admin's prior admissions that Saddam was not involved in 9-11 courtessy of this article:

Sky News (London): "One question for you both. Do you believe that there is a link between Saddam Hussein, a direct link, and the men who attacked on September the 11th?"

Bush: "I can't make that claim.'

Bush: No evidence Saddam Hussein involved in Nine-Eleven attacks

Rice: U.S. Never Said Saddam Was Behind 9/11

Rumsfeld sees no link between Saddam Hussein, 9/11

Wolfowitz: Iraq Was Not Involved In 9-11 Terrorist Attacks, No Ties To Al-Qaeda

Brent Scowcroft, one of the Republican Party’s most respected foreign policy advisors;

"Don't Attack Saddam. It would undermine our antiterror
efforts. There is scant evidence to tie Saddam to terrorist
organizations, and even less to the Sept. 11 attacks."

Allies Find No Links Between Iraq, Al Qaeda

"What I'm asked is if I've seen any evidence of that. (Iraq
links to al Qaeda) And the answer is: I haven't.” -British
Foreign Secretary Jack Straw, who supports U.S. invasion &
occupation of Iraq.],0,4538810.story

British Intelligence agencies, MI6 and MI5

A dossier prepared by the two agencies “showed no discernible
links between Iraq and al-Qaida,”

Richard Kerr, a former deputy CIA director who lead an internal review of the CIA's prewar intelligence;

“the CIA has not found any proof of operational ties between al
Qaeda and Saddam Hussein's regime.”

The White House’s own publication, A Decade of Defiance and Deception, makes no mention of Osama bin Laden or al Qaeda.

The 2002 congressional joint intelligence committee’s report on the Sept. 11 attacks revealed that the Bush administration had no evidence to support its claim that Saddam’s government was supporting al-Qaeda.

No proof links Iraq, al-Qaida, Powell says

According to a "top secret British document", quoted by the BBC, "there is nothing but enmity between Iraq and Al Qaeda." The BBC said the leak came from intelligence officials upset that their work was being used to justify war." (quoted in Daily News, New York, 6 February 2003).

Three former Bush administration officials who worked on
intelligence and national security issues have told National
Journal that the prewar evidence tying al Qaeda to Iraq was
tenuous, exaggerated, and often at odds with the conclusions of
key intelligence agencies.

"…analysts at the Central Intelligence Agency have
complained that senior administration officials have exaggerated
the significance of some intelligence reports about Iraq,
particularly about its possible links to terrorism, in order to
strengthen their political argument for war, government officials


"At the Federal Bureau of Investigation, some
investigators said they were baffled by the Bush administration's
insistence on a solid link between Iraq and Osama bin Ladens
network. "We've been looking at this hard for more than a
year and you know what, we just don't think it's there," a
government official said."

This is consistent with what they were saying back in October

"There's absolutely no evidence that Iraq was supporting
al Qaeda, ever."

-Richard Clarke, former terrorism chief under bush.

Iraq-al Qaeda ties have not been found

Bush administration hyped sketchy and false evidence to push for

The Bush administration’s claim that Iraqi leader Saddam Hussein
had ties to al Qaeda — one of the administration’s central
arguments for a pre-emptive war — appears to have been based on
even less solid intelligence than the administration’s claims
that Iraq had hidden stocks of chemical and biological weapons.

Nearly a year after U.S. and British troops invaded Iraq, no
evidence has turned up to verify allegations of Saddam’s links
with al Qaeda, and several key parts of the administration’s
case have either proved false or seem increasingly doubtful.

Iraq and al Qaeda: What Evidence?

bush's own hand-picked Republican weapons hunter ISG, Dr. David

David Kay was on the ground for months investigating the
activities of Hussein's regime. He concluded "But we simply
did not find any evidence of extensive links with Al Qaeda, or for
that matter any real links at all."

He called a speech where Cheney made the claim there was a link,
as being "evidence free."

Israeli intelligence (the Moussad)

“According to Israeli intelligence, Palestinians are still not
connected to the global terror network, and neither is Iraq.”

bush's second and final hand-picked Republican weapons hunter
ISG, Dr. Charles Dueffler;

Report: No WMD stockpiles in Iraq, no capability since 1991, no
evidence of ties to al Qaeda, no serious threat;


No evidence of Iraq-Al Qaeda ties: 9/11 commission

"CIA Review Finds No Evidence Saddam Had Ties to Islamic

NO ties between Iraq and international terrorists, al-Qaeda or

1. Central to the Saddam - al Qaeda connection claim is the
assertion that Czech authorities had evidence of a meeting between
one of the September 11 hijackers, Mohammed Atta and an Iraqi
agent in Prague in April 2001.

Both Czech President Vaclav Havel and Czech intelligence refuted
this report.

More than that, so do the FBI and CIA; Only one problem with that
story, the FBI pointed out. Atta was traveling at the time between
Florida and Virginia Beach, Va. (The bureau had his rental car and
hotel receipts)

This lie of BushCo's was debunked last year. But to this day,
members of the Administration cite the Prague report as evidence
of an Iraq - al Qaeda connection.

2. Cheney also claimed that 1993 World Trade Center bombing
co-conspirator Abdul Rahman Yasin had received “financing” and
“safe haven” from Saddam’s government.

You have to really love this one...yeah he did. Sort of. He was in
an Iraqi JAIL from 1994 until shortly before the invasion;

"He was being clothed and fed by them so long as he wore
stripes,” joked one U.S. investigator.

Yasin had hopped onto a plane for Iraq. He was picked up by the
Iraqi police a year later and had been held without a charge
placed against him. Iraq had twice offered to deliver him to the
United States, but only upon written receipt that Iraq had given
him up… "like a receipt for a FedEx package"

but the US refused the offer.

Yasin was picked up by the FBI a few days after the bombing in an
apartment in Jersey City, N.J., that he was sharing with his
mother. He was so helpful and cooperative, giving the FBI names
and addresses, that they released him.

Yasin says he was even driven back home in an FBI car.

The FBI agree, saying they decided to let Yasin go free.

Yasin, whose picture is on the FBI Web site along with Osama bin
Laden, is one of President Bush’s 22 most-wanted terrorists.

3. Ansar al-Islam, a radical Kurdish group, whose leader lives a
free man in Norway, after 2 FBI interrogations found nothing to
even declare him an "enemy combatant".

Of course there's that other pesky little fact, that Ansar al
lives in the Kurdish north of Iraq, out of Saddam's control and
under Kurdish AND AMERICAN control for the past 13 years.

Iraq had no ties to al Qaeda, and nothing to do with the 911
attacks; so would a bush-supporting moran please explain why bush
is suddenly again LYING by implying Iraq was involved with the 911

And yes, Bush's recent claim "We went to war because we were
attacked..." is clearly a LIE.
