Tony Snow
From Think Progress

Asked whether Bush still thinks there was a relationship between Hussein and Al Qaeda honcho Al Zarqawi, White House spokesman Tony Snow nearly admitted the absence of such a relationship, but then said one existed because Zarqawi “operated” in Iraq. But as ThinkProgress points out, that’s like saying America had a “relationship” with the Unabomber because he was ?operating? in the United States.


[A]t today?s press briefing, White House Press Secretary Tony Snow insisted that Saddam had a ?relationship? because Zarqawi was in the country. Snow refused to ?go into the vagaries of the Senate report.? Watch it:

This is the equivalent of saying that the United States government had a ?relationship? with unibomber Ted Kaczynski because he was ?operating? in the United States.

The White House?s insistence that Zarqawi had a relationship with Saddam ? in the face of overwhelming evidence to the contrary ? borders on pathological.

You know what, if you don’t have an “ah-ha” then you don’t need a war. You should surely stay your ass at home! We needed an “ah-ha” before going to war.

Bush, you took our girls away, you took our boys away, you killed those innocent people in the WTCs, and you faked the Pentagon attack, and you faked the Flight 93 crash. Why wasn’t there a ceremony in Philadelphia for those supposed victims? It’s simple, there weren’t any.

Impeach! Impeach! Impeach! Impeach!
