I’m linking to this Josh Marshall post to establish a record in my own archives of things that we’ve been told along the way by the current denizens of the White House. Dick Cheney went on TV today with Tim Russert and said some things that just weren’t true in order to pretend like the American people are justified in believing that Saddam Hussein had something to do with the 9/11 attacks. As I’ve said from day one, there are some real arguments to make about why it made sense to invade Iraq, but the President and his friends have eschewed those in favor of a load of crap that they thought sounded better. (The post that follows also has some information about the report on Iraq’s weapons capabilities that may now never be released publicly.)
