Bush Sticks Up For His Boss

Bush was faced this morning with the prospect of either:

(1)agreeing that the 9/11 Commission’s conclusions – reached after painstaking, non-partisan examination of mountains of evidence – about the non-existence of an Iraq link to Al-Qaeda are probably correct, while simultaneously admitting that Cheney was wrong when he insisted the other day on the mythical link between Iraq and Al-Qaeda;

or (2) ignoring the factual evidence, further shredding Bush administration credibility, and siding with Vice President Cheney.

Can guess which one he chose?

WASHINGTON (AP) – President Bush on Thursday disputed the Sept. 11 commission’s finding that there was no “collaborative relationship” between Saddam Hussein and the al-Qaida terrorist network responsible for the attacks.

“There was a relationship between Iraq and al-Qaida,” Bush insisted following a meeting with his Cabinet at the White House.
