"in the war against al Qaeda, Saddam Hussein was one of our best allies."
Ok, Donks! Defend your lying comrade! I'll lay out the facts. Either refute them, or admit that you are nothing more than a pack of liars desperate to regain power and willing to say and do anything in order to accomplish that goal.
1) Scheuer was the head of the CIA's bin Laden unit in 1998, when Clinton's Justice Department indicted bin Laden.
2) This is from Count 4 of the indictment:
"Al Qaeda also forged alliances with the National Islamic Front in the Sudan and with the government of Iran and its associated terrorist group Hezballah for the purpose of working together against their perceived common enemies in the West, particularly the United States. In addition, al Qaeda reached an understanding with the government of Iraq that al Qaeda would not work against that government and that on particular projects, specifically including weapons development, al Qaeda would work cooperatively with the Government of Iraq."
3) In a recent issue of Commentary Magazine, Gabriel Schoenfeld wrote a devastating critique of the CIA titled "What Became of the CIA?" In the March edition of the magazine. Scheuer responded by writing a letter to the editor that was one of several published in the June edition. In his list of self-proclaimed accomplishments, Scheuer claimed that he and his team “supplied all of the information used in the federal indictment of Osama bin Laden.”
Also from the Powerline article, we learn:
In the 9-11 Commission Report “Mike” is referenced quite a bit. We now know that “Mike” is Michael Scheuer. Did he have any influence on the language in the report which said there was no “operational” relationship? If so, one of the 9-11 Commission’s sources has major credibility problems.
Democrats are LIARS, THEY LIE AND LIE AND LIE AND LIE and the media REFUSES to hold them accountable. And then they crow about how much damage their lies have done to the President of the United States.
