Fact #12
from The Facts Speak For Themselves


In the days and months following the attacks, several people within the administration and elsewhere tried to tie Iraq to 9/11.


General Wesley Clark said,

"there were many people, inside and outside the government, who tried to link Saddam Hussein to Sept. 11."

According to George Tenet, shortly after 9/11, Richard Perle said,

"Iraq has to pay a price for what happened yesterday, they bear responsibility."

Former CIA Director James Woolsey said,

"[I]ntelligence and law enforcement officials investigating the case would do well to at least consider another possibility: that the attacks-whether perpetrated by bin Laden and his associates or by others-were sponsored, supported, and perhaps even ordered by Saddam Hussein," he writes.


"As yet, there is no evidence of explicit state sponsorship of the September 11 attacks. But absence of evidence is not evidence of absence."

Dick Cheney claimed the bogus Atta-Iraqi spy meeting had been,

"pretty well confirmed, that he did go to Prague and he did meet with a senior official of the Iraqi intelligence service in Czechoslovakia last April, several months before the attack."

Since that time, they have done so again, and again, and again, and again, and again, and again, and again, and again, and again, and again, and again, and again, and again, and again, and again, and again, and even Hillary did it.

"We went to war BECAUSE WE WERE ATTACKED, and we are at war today because there are still people out there who want to harm our country and hurt our citizens."

‘No One Was Arguing

That Saddam Hussein Somehow Had Something To Do With 9/11′

On PBS’s Charlie Rose yesterday — six years after the eve of the Iraq invasion — former secretary of state Condoleezza Rice discussed the decision to invade Iraq.


Rice said she has had no “second thoughts” about striking the country, and when pressed by Rose on whether Saddam Hussein had connections to 9/11, Rice blankly said that “no one” believed in such a link:

ROSE: But you didn’t believe it had anything to do with 9/11.

RICE: No. No one was arguing that Saddam Hussein somehow had something to do with 9/11.

ROSE: No one.

RICE: I was certainly not. The President was certainly not… That’s right. We were not arguing that.

Rose also tried to press Rice on whether Cheney pushed the link, but she didn’t answer. Watch above video...


Of course, there was no link between Saddam and 9/11. But these supposed ties formed the basis of the administration’s causus belli.


A letter from the White House to the House Speaker on March 18, 2003, read:

“(2) acting pursuant to the Constitution and Public Law 107-243 is consistent with the United States and other countries continuing to take the necessary actions against international terrorists and terrorist organizations, including those nations, organizations, or persons who planned, authorized, committed, or aided the terrorist attacks that occurred on September 11, 2001.”

In his book, Bush At War, Bob Woodward noted that Bush said after 9/11,

“I believe Iraq was involved, but I’m not going to strike them now.”

Rice was no exception either.


On Sept. 15, 2002, she said that Saddam had,

“links to terrorism [that] would include al-Qaeda.”

As late as September 2006, she remarked,

“there were ties going on between Al Qaeda and Saddam Hussein’s regime going back for a decade.”

Cheney still believes there was a link between Iraq and al Qaeda.

In recent weeks, former Bush administration officials have continued to push the link. Bush maintains that he was right to make a false link between Iraq and 9/11.


Former press secretary Ari Fleischer said last week,

“But after September 11th, having been being hit once, how could we take a chance that Saddam Hussein might not strike again?”
