Confusing

Ok....Did anybody else know that it is the five year anniversary of 9/11? I haven't seen any television coverage or heard any radio coverage! Nothing on the internet either.....Oh wait....It's everywhere.
Anybody else watching this "Path to 9/11" thing on ABC? It gives me goosebumps. The movie scares the hell out of me.....and I know how it ends!

Anyway, In a September 9, 2006 article in the Los Angeles Times:
The Senate Intelligence Committee on Friday said it had found no evidence that Saddam Hussein had ties to Al Qaeda or provided safe harbor to one of its most notorious operatives, Abu Musab Zarqawi — conclusions contradicting claims by the Bush administration before it invaded Iraq.

In a long-awaited report, the committee instead determined that the former Iraqi dictator was wary of Al Qaeda; repeatedly rebuffed requests from its leader, Osama bin Laden, for assistance; and sought to capture Zarqawi when the terrorist turned up in Baghdad.
White House spokesman Tony Snow on Friday downplayed the significance of the report, describing it as "nothing new."

"It's … kind of relitigating things that happened three years ago," Snow said. "In 2002 and 2003, members of both parties got a good look at the intelligence we had, and they came to the very same conclusions about what was going on."

Wait, what? The response we get from the White House spokesman is "Yeah, we knew that already." Wait a minute.... What? Why? Why are we in Iraq then? I am sooooooo confused.

It's a long article, so I'll include a link to it here......
"Iraq Not Linked To Al Qaeda"
