How Soon We Forget

Warbloggers seem to have memories no longer than about 24 hours. Brian Carnell seems to think Al Gore was lying when he claimed the Bush Administration was leaving the false impression "Saddam Hussein was partly responsible for the attack against us on September 11th, 2001, so a good way to respond to that attack would be to invade his country and forcibly remove him from power."

Richard Perle, New York Times, December 28, 2002:

His collaboration with terrorists is well documented. Evidence of a meeting in Prague between a senior Iraqi intelligence agent and Mohamed Atta, the Sept. 11 ringleader, is convincing.

Dick Cheney was pushing this as well:

The Bush administration also cites a meeting in Prague between Sept. 11 ringleader Mohammed Atta and an Iraqi intelligence official.

“We have reporting that places him in Prague with a senior Iraqi intelligence official a few months before the attack on the World Trade Center,” Vice President Dick Cheney said on NBC’s “Meet the Press” in September.

In fact, this was a favorite of InstaHack and the rest for months.

The rest of Brian's little rant is equally silly. Instahack has done one of his "Hey, I'm not sure I agree with all of this but I'm going to link to it anyway!" little games.

Jesse has much more.
