Bush, Iraq, and More Lies

George II went to the Coast Guard Academy and...tied 9/11, Iraq, and Ossama together, again. There are few things in life that I like less than people who lie and here's some whoppers,

"Here in America we are living in the eye of a storm." Sorry, there are storms and this ain't it.
"Hear the words of Osama bin Laden: He calls the struggle in Iraq a `war of destiny.'"
"Victory in Iraq is important for Osama bin Laden, and victory in Iraq is vital for the United States of America."

Not to pick nits, but Ossama could give a rat's patoot about winning in Iraq, he can't and he knows it - unlike George II - what he wants is to kill Americans and destabilize the area.

All of the stuff he trotted out was old news and mostly speculation about "credible" but unconfirmed intelligence. The people involved dead or Gitmo'ed, mostly dead. Iraq was posed as the center of al-Qeda, rather than Pakistan - possibly because Pakistan/Afghanistan is embarrassing.
