Bush Lies: Saddam & 9/11: A Smoking Gun And A Warm Body

09/20/03 Information Clearing House

In an article titled, "Bush: No Saddam Links To 9/11" the Associate Press reported "President Bush said Wednesday there was no evidence that Saddam Hussein was involved in the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11, 2001 disputing an idea held by many Americans." 

The article quotes President Bush  "We have no evidence that Saddam Hussein was involved with the Sept. 11" attacks".  Yet on the March 18, 2003, President Bush made the following statement in a letter to Congress, 

(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.

The letter to Congress is reproduced in full below. The original document may be viewed by clicking here. http://usinfo.state.gov/topical/pol/terror/03031906.htm

This was a clear attempt to implicate Iraq with the attack on 9/11 and to successfully convince 70% of the American public that Saddam was involved in the Sept. 11 "attacks"


Bush Tells Congress Diplomacy Alone Will Not Resolve Iraq Crisis

Says use of force is consistent with international efforts against terrorism

President Bush formally informed the U.S. Congress of his determination that diplomatic and peaceful means alone would not lead to Iraqi compliance with United Nations demands that it would disarm.

In a March 18 letter to Congressional leaders, Bush said that his use of the Congressional authorization to wage war against Iraq is consistent with the international effort against terrorism, "including those nations, organizations, or persons who planned, authorized, committed, or aided the terrorist attacks that occurred on September 11, 2001."

Following is the text of Bush's letter to the Speaker of the House of Representatives and the President Pro Tempore of the Senate:

 

The White House
Office of the Press Secretary
March 19, 2003
Text Of A Letter From The President To The Speaker Of The House Of Representatives And The President Pro Tempore Of The Senate

March 18, 2003

Dear Mr. Speaker: (Dear Mr. President:)

Consistent with section 3(b) of the Authorization for Use of Military Force Against Iraq Resolution of 2002 (Public Law 107-243), and based on information available to me, including that in the enclosed document, I determine that:

 

    (1) reliance by the United States on further diplomatic and other peaceful means alone will neither (A) adequately protect the national security of the United States against the continuing threat posed by Iraq nor (B) likely lead to enforcement of all relevant United Nations Security Council resolutions regarding Iraq; and

     

    (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.

Sincerely,

George W. Bush
