Dick Cheney spouts the big lie again

Dick Cheney is once again spouting his lies about the supposed link between al-Qaida and Saddam Hussein link. What's so laughable - and telling - is Cheney told the whopper to Rush Limbaugh on-air yesterday.

[Abu Musab al-Zarqawi]He took up residence there before we ever launched into Iraq, organized the al-Qaida operations inside Iraq before we even arrived on the scene and then, of course, led the charge for Iraq until we killed him last June. As I say, they were present before we invaded Iraq.

Is there any wonder why such a significant portion of the population believes in the fairy-tale of the Saddam-AQ link? Hell, no. Not when the kool-aid drinkers are newsing up on a steady diet Rush and Fox and Friends. This kind of information gathering is like trying to lose weight on the McDonalds Diet.

So, what would make big Dick spout the big lie again? Just the release of a declassified Pentagon report that AQ and the Saddam government were not working together before the invasion. Here's a PDF of the report.

Has he actually convinced himself of his own lies?

The combo of Bush/Cheney have lived by the credo if you say the same lie over and over, it will always be believed.

Cheney hasn't strayed from that principle.

Hi Ron,

Whether I agree with the view expressed in your site is not the point, what I cannot disagree with, I must confess, is that you are running a truly lucid and elegant blog.

As regard to Abu-Mussa, he was in Baghdad receiving medical treatment prior to the liberation of Iraq by American-led forces.

What is interesting is the report was released the same day Dick Cheney told this link lie.

Remember GWBush's 'catapult the propaganda' line?
