President Bush invoked 9/11 five times last night. He refereneced Osama bin Laden twice.
It was a desperate attempt to imply a link between the increasingly deadly war in Iraq and the attacks on American soil in 2001. America knows that’s not true. Actually, so does President Bush.
In a press conference on 1/31/03, asked if he believed there was a link between Saddam Hussein and 9/11, President Bush admitted, “I can’t make that claim.”
