Show me where even one democrat declared that Al Qaeda was in Irak. Unless they were repeating White House bullsh*t.
In the final analysis,Hayes said nothing of substance. Bayh spoke of a relationship, not a presence in Iraq. If we accept "relationship" as presence, then you'd better start invading Saudi Arabia, the Emirates, Kuwait, Qatar etc. No proof that. Lieberman a democrat? Tenet a congressman/senator? Thought he was a civil servant? Richard Clarke? What district did he represent as a democrat? Hillary Clinton was bamboozled by the White House and the CIA. Her tough luck, and she surely cannot be proud of that. She went so far as to say the 18 terrorists came from Canada. I never really forgave her for that outright lie and she never apologized.<quoted text>
Stephen F. Hayes: If the Iraq-al Qaeda connection is a neocon myth, those neocons are even more resourceful than the conspiracy theorists suggest and they sure have got a lot of unlikely people making their arguments. Evan Bayh, Democrat from Indiana, has described the Iraq-al Qaeda connection as a relationship of "mutual exploitation." Joe Lieberman said, "There are extensive contacts between Saddam Hussein's government and al Qaeda." George Tenet, too, has spoken of those contacts and goes further, claiming Iraqi "training" of al Qaeda terrorists on WMDs and provision of "safe haven" for al Qaeda in Baghdad. Richard Clarke once said the U.S. government was "sure" Iraq had provided a chemical-weapons precursor to an al Qaeda-linked pharmaceutical plant in Sudan. Even Hillary Clinton cited the Iraq-al Qaeda connection as one reason she voted for the Iraq War.(NRO)
And so on. You have more holes than a kilo of Swiss cheese, loser.
