Saddam Not Involved in Septmeber 11th

Finally George Bush has cleared up the widespread belief in the US about links between Saddam Hussein's administration and Al Q'aida saying, No Evidence of Hussein Tie to 9/11.

One of the significant issues for those who have read widely around the recent war in Iraq was why a huge number (a majority according to surveys) of US Citizens believed that Saddam was involved in 9/11. Bush's statement clears up a load of non-commital innuendos and confirms that "we've had no evidence that Saddam Hussein was involved with September the 11th".

Didn't stop Bush referring to Sept 11 numerous times in his speech on the 6th I think (?) which was ostensibly about Iraq.
He, Rumsfeld, Cheney, Rice and Wolfowitz among others have consistently gone out of their way to link sept 11 and Saddam for the last two years.

Unfortunately this hasn't cleared much up, the American public continue to believe Saddam was involved. The press doesn't help - the New York Times reported the story on page 22, the Washington Post relegated it to page 18.

This is what happens when the press becomes so close to the administration that it becomes part of their propoganda machine. It's now in the press's interest to not clear up these lies, as they were part of the lie.
