Attacks Kill 10 U.S. Soldiers in Iraq

    From ThinkProgress

    Bush Admits Iraq Had ‘Nothing’ to Do With 9/11

    At his press conference today, the president came refreshingly (although just a tad belatedly) clean about the fact that Iraq played no part whatsoever in the Sept. 11 attacks. Watch it.

    Hayden, Gonzales and Cheney

    Were Cheney, Gonzales and Hayden Lying About Wiretap Capabilities?

    Bush never let the nation in on the fact that the Energy and State departments had given him reports that cast major doubts on Saddam’s WMD capacity and his willingness to attack the U.S. The National Journal has this major exclusive.
