Saw it on TV last night: Cheney says that there has been a firmly established link between Saddam and AQ, then in a different interview a few months later says there was no proven link. When confronted by the reporter about his earlier allegations, he claims he never said there was a firmly established link.

He's a liar. Grady, are you reading this?

If you want to know when Bush, Cheney and Rummsfeld are lying, just folow these easy steps:

1: Is sound comming out of his mouth? Then hes lying.
2: Is he alive but not talking? Then hes thinking up the next lie to tell.

He might read it but, he won't reply.

Everything this administration says is a lie. The sad thing is that alot of people buy in to their lies. On the plus side, they'll be outta power soon.

Yes, but can they credibly talk about anything else? They mentioned 9/11 at least 30,000 times last night at the convention. Pathetic and shameless.

Cheney opens his mouth and lies come out. This is nothing new. He has never dropped the Iraq-AQ connection.

Here's your reply. I haven't seen the tape you're speaking of. Maybe he erred. I don't know. It's not hard for a politician to forget some of what he says, since they are constantly being interviewed about something. So, until I see something I can evaluate, I'll reserve my opinion.

WASHINGTON (CNN) -- Vice President Dick Cheney said Thursday the evidence is "overwhelming" that al Qaeda had a relationship with Saddam Hussein's regime in Iraq, and he said media reports suggesting that the 9/11 commission has reached a contradictory conclusion were "irresponsible."

"There clearly was a relationship. It's been testified to. The evidence is overwhelming," Cheney said in an interview with CNBC's "Capitol Report."

What is so hard to understand about there being a relationship between aq and Iraq. Saddam harbored aq. Helped to train them, Sent money to other terrorist organizations, and would do anything to strike at the USA. Was there a link? Of course there was. Was Iraq directly involved in 911? No but that does not mean there was no link. The 911 commision clearly states that there was a link between Saddam and aq just not a direct link to 911. Get your facts straight people. Listening to only what you want to hear will only make you blind to the truth.

Okay! I have watched the Comedy Central analysis of the administrations policies regarding the war on terror and I have decided to change my mind and vote for the American traitor.


Jon Stewart is a journalist extraordinaire. Might he have done better to factor in the broader issues involving the decisions to go to war? Naw. Laughs are far more important than truth.

This thread is about Cheney's blatant lies about Iraq sponsoring AQ.

Oh, did I fail to mention that I watched the "news analysis" of Dick Cheney's statements regarding the meeting of al Queda's oprerative Mohammed Atta with Iraqi operatives? Did I fail to note an evident contradiction? No. Did I see an unbiased analysis that might have clarified the contradicition? No. Did I see a comedian making jokes about the very serious war on on terror? Yes. Do I rely on Comedy Central for my news analysis? No. Did any of this convince me to vote for the American Viet Cong, John Kerry? Not on your life.

Here you go

Here's the full Daily Show video. Let me look for the full interview...


Here's the transcript from that section of the interview:





Borger: Well, let's get to Mohamed Atta for a minute because you mentioned him as well. You have said in the past that it was, quote, "pretty well confirmed."

Cheney: No, I never said that.

Borger: OK.

Cheney: I never said that.

Borger: I think that is...

Cheney: Absolutely not. What I said was the Czech intelligence service reported after 9/11 that Atta had been in Prague on April 9 of 2001, where he allegedly met with an Iraqi intelligence official. We have never been able to confirm that nor have we been able to knock it down, we just don't know.




And how convenient! The June 17 interview is NOT on the White House site!


The fact that this was on the Daily Show has NOTHING to do with the contents of the video displayed. Get your . out of your ass and stop avoiding the subject. Do you deny these interviews exist? Do you deny that they are contradictory?

Cutwolf-

If Cheney says that they could never find a direct link between AQ and Iraq and the 9/11 commission says they couldn't find a direct link between the two - but both believe there was a link - how was Cheney lying?

Cheney was lying because he claimed that he never said that it was "pretty well confirmed" that Atta met in Prague. Yet he did say that.

That is a lie.

I saw the whole report on Comedy Central and one interview and one contradiction by the Vice President is not sufficient to besmirch his over all credibilty. The anti-Bush folks are grasping at straws. It's as simple as that.
