In this news conference as Bush was yammering on about 9/11 and Iraq, a reporter asked him what Iraq had to do with the World Trade Center. This question forced W. to admit one of his lies. The short answer is, “Nothing.” He tried to spin the answer by going off on his “freedom agenda” nonsense, which claims that invading and occupying Iraq and killing hundreds of thousands of innocent people, including men, women and children, injuring and displacing many more and poisoning the country for centuries with depleted uranium somehow gives the Iraqis freedom. Yeah right.
This admission by W. is very significant. In the minds of most Americans and U.S. soldiers the U.S. is in the Iraq war because of the World Trade Center attacks on September 11, 2001. That’s plain and simple. Bush said so earlier in this video; they came here and attacked 3,000 of our citizens. (We know that that was done by people in the top of the U.S. military and intelligence agencies, that explosives brought down the WTC in 3 controlled demolitions, and that W. became the best known conspiracy theorist in history for the remainder of his 2 terms as President.)
Bush and his administration repeatedly made statements that tied Iraq to 9/11. Without directly saying, “We invaded and occupied Iraq because of the WTC attacks”, they insinuated the connection. This is well documented in the book by Vincent Bugliosi The Prosecution of George W. Bush for Murder.
