Jason Krueger's Regurgitated Propaganda

On September 16, 2008 at 8:57 p.m., the commentator known as Jason Krueger refers us to this web page as “evidence” that “Bush lied”. On that page, the very first piece of “evidence” reads:

“On August 26, 2002, in an address to the national convention of the Veteran of Foreign Wars, Cheney flatly declared: ‘Simply stated, there is no doubt that Saddam Hussein now has weapons of mass destruction. There is no doubt he is amassing them to use against our friends, against our allies, and against us.’ ”
1) There is no question as to the extreme bias of Jason’s source. But, bias alone (real OR imaginary) is never a sufficient rebuttal (except in the “minds” of so-called “Liberals”). So, let’s proceed.

2) Was Cheney accurately quoted? Yes.

3) As merely one of many examples, did Jason and his source both miss this report from the Philadelphia Inquirer? How about this report from the New York Sun?

4) Is Jason unaware that, of the 17 UN Security Council Resolutions on Iraq which were issued over a period of 12 years, 14 of them dealt directly with WMD?

5) Is Jason unaware that UNSCR 1441 essentially told Saddam (paraphrasing):

“Better hide the WMD, The United States will be invading 30 days from today”

6) Is Jason unaware that the U.N. gave Saddam that heads up on 11/8/02 and we did not actually invade until 3/20/03? No wonder we have not found most of the WMD which the United Nations KNEW was there! That WMD was in Syria long before we invaded!

7) Is Jason unaware that, in July of 2004, the BIPARTISAN Senate Select Committee on Intelligence UNANIMOUSLY concluded:

“The Central Intelligence Agency reasonably and objectively assessed in Iraqi Support for Terrorism that the most problematic area of contact between Iraq and al-Qaida were the reports of training in the use of non-conventional weapons, specifically, chemical and biological weapons”
Chapter XII, Page 346, Conclusion 94

In other words, Saddam trained al Qaeda in the use of biological and chemical WMD.

8) Is Jason unaware that the BIPARTISAN 9/11 Commission reported that Bin Laden was offered “a safe haven in Iraq” (and even Bill Clinton knew it)?

Quoting The Bi-Partisan 9/11 Report:

“Iraqi officials offered Bin Ladin a safe haven in Iraq”
Page 66

“Saddam Hussein wanted bin Laden in Baghdad”
Page 134
In other words Saddam wanted to give al Qaeda precisely the same state sponsorship that led to 9/11.

Any source which alleges to have 935 examples of “false statements” and begins the list with “evidence” which is as demonstrably specious as this one is not worth another nanosecond of my time or anybody else’s time.

This nonsense from Jason is PATHETIC PABULUM blindly consumed by naïve little children!
