Cheney: "Facts be damned"

From MSNBC: Cheney reasserts al-Qaida-Saddam connection
Vice President Dick Cheney repeated his assertions of al-Qaida links to Saddam Hussein’s Iraq on Thursday as the Defense Department released a report citing more evidence that the prewar government did not cooperate with the terrorist group.

Cheney contended that al-Qaida was operating in Iraq before the March 2003 invasion led by U.S. forces and that terrorist Abu Musab al-Zarqawi was leading the Iraqi branch of al-Qaida. Others in al-Qaida planned the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks.

“He took up residence there before we ever launched into Iraq, organized the al-Qaida operations inside Iraq before we even arrived on the scene and then, of course, led the charge for Iraq until we killed him last June,” Cheney told radio host Rush Limbaugh during an interview. “As I say, they were present before we invaded Iraq.”
You know, he must be desperate to sell this war to the 30% if he's going to go against the facts that blatantly. Worse yet, he doesn't assert these lies in the real media, where there's even the slightest chance he might be told how much of a lying sack he is, just on right-wing shitholes like Flush Limpballs' show. The sad part? His "boss", Dubya, has already said that the Saddam-AQ link was bullshit.

Oh, and to steal a bit from Craig: You can hear Limbaugh's show locally on 1190 AM WOWO, Fort Wayne's home for deranged far-right garbage.
