Earlier today, Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin linked the Iraq war to the attacks of September 11, 2001, “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.’” “America can never go back to that false sense of security that came before September 11, 2001,” said Palin at the deployment ceremony. Watch it:
As the Washington Post’s Anne Kornblut points out, “The idea that Iraq shared responsibility with al-Qaeda for the attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon, once promoted by Bush administration officials, has since been rejected even by the president himself.”
I give up!! If Palin gets into office, it's all over - for any form of intelligence in Washington. The Republicans can't live this 9/11 down:
- John McCain's release pictures from Viet Nam are "discovered"
- Palin's son and the Alaskan troops are sent off on this day!
- Palin declares that Iraq was involved in 9/11!!
Is Bush giving this lady lessons in rhetoric and reasoning?
