Saddam Hussein had nothing to do with 9/11

“The art of leadership … consists in consolidating the attention of the people against a single adversary and taking care that nothing will split up that attention…. The leader of genius must have the ability to make different opponents appear as if they belonged to one category.” — Adolf Hitler (1889–1945), German dictator. Mein Kampf, vol. 1, ch. 3 (1925).

In some clips from yesterday’s Senate debate on The Daily Show last night, several Senators were giving testimony that repeatedly made it sound like 9/11 and Saddam Hussein were linked. Give it a rest, people. The two had nothing to do with each other. Even George Bush says there was no link.

Oh, and by the way, the other featured event on the Daily Show is that apparently the White House created fake news reports supporting the Medicare bill and distributed them to TV stations as if they were real. I’m hoping it was a fake story, but it’s a sad commentary that I can easily believe it. Shudder
