9/11 Linked To Iraq

By Christopher R Rice

Remember the ad campaign sponsored by a group of Bush allies under the name Freedom's Watch, four spots aired in 60 congressional districts in 20 states. The commercials urged Congress to stick with the president's strategy in Iraq. The most poignant of them starred a soldier identified as John Kriesel, who was wounded on Dec. 2, 2006, and is shown walking with two artificial legs.

The television commercial was grim and gripping: A soldier who lost both legs in an explosion near Fallujah explains why he thinks U.S. forces need to stay in Iraq.

"They attacked us," he says as the screen turns to an image of the second hijacked airplane heading toward the smoking World Trade Center on Sept. 11, 2001. "And they will again. They won't stop in Iraq."

Every investigation has shown that Iraq did not, in fact, have anything to do with the Sept. 11 attacks. But the ad, was part of a $15 million media blitz launched by an advocacy group allied with the White House, an overt attempt during the debate in Congress over the war to link the attacks with Iraq.

Former Bush White House press secretary Ari Fleischer, one of the group's founders, said the ad is not misleading by saying "they attacked us" in the context of Iraq and showing the image of the Sept. 11 attack. "Iraqis did not attack us on 9/11," he agreed. But it does not matter, Fleischer added, because some of the same sorts of people who did are now fighting U.S. forces in Iraq.

So what Mr. Fliescher is telling us is that if the US attacks a sovereign nation with a democratically elected president that it doesn't matter. International law is meaningless and worthless when applied to the US. Because when the US commits war crimes who's going to say shit?

At a Senate hearing. Sen. Russell Feingold (D-Wis.), a leading war opponent, suggested Iraq has diverted too much attention and resources. "The question we must answer is not whether we are winning or losing in Iraq but whether Iraq is helping or hurting our efforts to defeat al-Qaeda," Feingold said. "That is the lesson of 9/11, and it's a lesson we must remember today."

WTF kind of Banana Republic has America become? A leading war opponent? Really, no Feingold (D-Wis.) is also a war criminal. Instead of questioning the legitimacy of invaded a sovereign nation, killing civilian woman and children and committing numerous war crimes, Feingold's only concern is whether the cost is too great.
