What a Moron
No, not Sarah Palin, but the reporter who tries
to paint her that way:
FORT WAINWRIGHT, Alaska, Sept. 11 -- Gov. Sarah Palin linked the war in Iraq with the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks, telling an Iraq-bound brigade of soldiers that included her son that they would "defend the innocent from the enemies who planned and carried out and rejoiced in the death of thousands of Americans."
The idea that the Iraqi government under Saddam Hussein helped al-Qaeda plan the attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon, a view once promoted by Bush administration officials, has since been rejected even by the president himself. But it is widely agreed that militants allied with al-Qaeda have taken root in Iraq since the U.S.-led invasion.
Yes, and five years ago you could have said that Palin was wrong. But Anne Kornblut is wrong here; does anybody deny that the soldiers heading over to Iraq are going there to fight Al Qaeda?
Seriously, I used to have some respect for the Washington Post but they've gone overboard for Obama.
