Palin: War in Iraq, response to 9/11

Palin: War in Iraq, response to 9/11 Sat, 13 Sep 2008 16:23:07 GMT

Republican vice-presidential pick Sarah Palin has renewed the discredited claim that the war in Iraq was a response to the 9/11 attacks. Addressing a brigade of soldiers heading to Iraq, Governor Palin said they would 'defend the innocent from the enemies who planned and carried out and rejoiced in the death of thousands of Americans.' This is while the view that Iraq shared responsibility with al-Qaeda for the attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon has even been discredited by the Bush administration. Following the 9/11 terrorist attacks, Vice President Dick Cheney made a false claim on NBC that Iraq had been the 'geographic base' for the attacks. However, President George W. Bush acknowledged on September 17, 2003 that, "We have no evidence that Saddam Hussein was involved with the 11 September attacks." Since she became the Republican vice presidential nominee, Gov. Palin has been widely criticized over her fitness for office and her knowledge of foreign policy. CS/HGH

"Truth's Validity"

Even if solid truth has been locked up in jail,
The truth can liquify or turn into a hale
And free itself without bargaining into sale.
The validity of truth shall never fail;
And its precious worth or value is not for sale!
