Someone send him an invitation to the Hague? Along with all those others that helped pull this off. You'll find a lot of them working for the Romney campaign, nowadays.

THIS

The voters NEED to know this. Elliott Cohen, Robert Kagan, Robert "16 words" Joseph, Dan Senor, and Eric Edelman... instead of walking away from politics with their heads hanging in shame, they see Romney like a piece of putty: get in now, and they'll once again have the White House and Pentagon under their control.

And they've made it perfectly clear that they want war with Iran.

Really though, imagine being responsible for the deaths of hundreds of thousands of people all so your stock goes up a few points making money that you'll never even live to spend. I cried when I had to put my beagle to sleep. Remind me never to run for office.

Like Oliver North, I expect. After all, he, too, carried water for a corrupt Republican administration.

The entire group lied their asses off. We know that. There was no connection between Iraq and the heinous actions of Sept. 11, 2001. The Bush administration worked hard to exploit the world - they lied to the American public, they lied to other countries, they manipulated and even manufactured evidence - into supporting our actions with Iraq.

I'm still baffled by the fact that Bush, Cheney, Powell, Gonzales, Rice, and the rest of them aren't at The Hague.

Cheney supported aparteid in South Africa, shot his friend in the face (the friend later apologized to Cheney), oh, and he literally doesn't have a pulse.

The only good thing I can say about Cheney is that at least he didn't rape dozens of boys in the Penn State gym shower.

So... where's all the folks who used to call me a "traitor" here on Fark for saying that the Bush admin was lying about the reasons for going to war with Iraq?

Don't worry... we know you guys are still here. Only today you go on and on about Obama... and you're just as right about him as you were about me.

The contents of the document, that which isn't redacted, make it crystal f'n clear that what Cheney would go on to claim was an absolute lie. Its a factual refute of anyone who could claim or pretend otherwise.

Lie about a hooker or some blow, whatever.

Lie about why people should listen to you and sacrifice their lives is absolutely evil. M'r F'r better hope there is no hell or rebirth.

I remember talking/arguing with co-workers that there was no link to Iraq, that the administration was actively lying to start a war in Iraq.

I wonder what a poll today would show "Did you support the invasion of Iraq?" I certainly remember it being in the 90% range back then.

I hate to put a damper on all the fun but the meeting to which Cheney referred allegedly took place in April of 2001.

By May 31, 2001, the iraqi diplomat had already been expelled.

Atta the hijacker WAS in Prague in June of 2001, but the person he had allegedly met with in April was already long gone.

In other words, the linked article is a sham.

Wiki explains it pretty clearly, and has the links you need.

Thanks halfie for keeping us on the straight and narrow.

Are you joking?? I am absolutely 100% positive that the CIA documents attached to the linked article do not contradict Cheney's statements about the APRIL meeting that he was referring to.

There were two Attas in Prague in May and Early June 2001, one was the hijacker one was not. The linked documents refer to the one that was not. As I have already said, the Iraqi Minister that was the subject of the APRIL meeting had been expelled by May 31, 2001.

Perhaps it is you who is missing the point?
 
2012-06-20 06:30:25 PM
i see the point, and suggest a hat to properly conceal it.

From the article:

A document declassified this week by the National Security Archive reveals that the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) delivered a briefing to the Bush administration which directly contradicts former Vice President Dick Cheney's claim that 9/11 hijacker Mohamed Atta visited an Iraqi intelligence official in Prague.

The document (PDF), dated Dec. 1, 2001 and delivered to the White House on the 8th, claims that Atta "did not travel to the Czech Republic on 31 May 2000," and adds that "the individual who attempted to enter the Czech Republic on 31 May 2000... was not the Atta who attacked the World Trade Center on 11 September 2001."

Despite this briefing, just days later on Dec. 9, 2001, Cheney told the late Tim Russert, host of Meet the Press, that the meeting in Prague had been "pretty well confirmed."

Well, what we now have that's developed since you and I last talked, Tim, of course, was that report that's been pretty well confirmed, that he did go to Prague and he did meet with a senior official of the Iraqi intelligence service in Czechoslovakia last April, several months before the attack."

It seems that the facts have a halfof33 bias, don't it?

/I seriously cannot believe that people are barking at me over my pointing out the gross flaws in the article.

Because you don't understand how the International Criminal Court works, I'm guessing. And also because they haven't committed any crimes that an international tribunal can charge them for. "Lying to one's people to go to war" isn't an offense the Hague can do anything about. That's on the people who elected them, and we keep electing them.

Um...

"The meeting to which Cheney referred allegedly took place in April of 2001..."; however, "On June 2, the hijacker Mohamed Atta, who had a visa, arrived in Prague by bus from Cologne, Germany, and flew to Newark the next day".

The "other Atta", to which this document refers, was in May 2000.

Th 9/11 commison report says, ""the FBI has gathered intelligence indicating that Atta was in Virginia Beach on April 4 (as evidenced by a bank surveillance camera photo), and in Coral Springs, Florida on April 11, where he and Shehhi leased an apartment. On April 6, 9, 10, and 11, Atta's cellular telephone was used numerous times to call various lodging establishments in Florida from cell sites within Florida. We cannot confirm that he placed those calls. But there are no U.S. records indicating that Atta departed the country during this period.""

So, WTF was Cheney or are you talking about April 2001 for? You can't even lie right.

tical: So, WTF was Cheney or are you talking about April 2001 for? You can't even lie right.


Excuse me? I have linked the Wiki on this. Czech Intelligence reported that Atta met with an Iraqi diplomat in April of 2000, that was what Cheney was referring to.

The fraudster author is mixing up two different stories, one from late May. Cheney was not referring to that.

Subsequent investigation has called into doubt the Czech Intelligence report, as noted by the 9/11 Commission report.

But the linked article and documents HAVE NOTHING TO DO WITH THAT ALLEGED MEETING IN APRIL, and his claim that it does is FALSE.

I realize that my explaining this will be met with furious wrrgggbblll, but facts is facts.

Halfies got them.

Raw Story does not.

WIKI also has links that you can click on. You know that right?

And the linked article quotes Cheney talking about an April meeting, but refers to documents referring to an Atta's visit in late May.

Things that make normal people go: hmmmm.

Things that make farkers RAGE at old halfof33.
