Bush did use 911 for his invasion of Iraq. There is no doubt about that. His speech to the world outlining the threat Iraq had on the world (october 2002) was filled with false statements and fear tactics.
Most of us bought them.
Denying that the war triggered al-Qaida's operations in Iraq, President Bush again links isurgents to 911 terrorists.

CHARLESTON, S.C. — President Bush today lashed out at critics who say that al-Qaida's operation in Iraq is distinct from terrorists who attacked the United States on Sept. 11, 2001.
"The merger between al-Qaida and its Iraqi affiliate is an alliance of killers and that is why the finest military in the world is on their trail," Bush said.
Citing security details he declassified for his speech, Bush described al-Qaida's burgeoning operation in Iraq as a direct threat to the United States. Bush accused critics in Congress of misleading the American public by suggesting otherwise.

Pray to God he comes to his senses and a controlled withdraw starts as soon as the next update from the generals on the ground reaches his desk. Or does he answer only to himself?
