The truth is Oama Bin Laden hated Saddam and wanted nothing

Go to you tube and watch the Dick Cheney Dec. 9th 2001 interview on Meet the Press. Cheney says Atta (leader of the 9/11 attackers) met with the Iraq Republican Guard in Prague before the attacks. Cheney says this is fact. Of course its all BS.

You tube is your friend, Rice goes on PBS newshour on Sep. 2002 and says several of the high level Gitmo detainees have told us that Iraq provided Al-Quaeda with training and chemical weapons development. Of course this was all BS too.

Bush says in a sppech on Oct. 7th 2002 that we have learned that Iraq has trained Al-Quaeda terrosits on bomb making, poisons and deadly gasses.

Aug. 2002 Cheney in Nashville to the VFW "there can be no doubt that Saddam Hussein has weapons of mass destruction. No doubt that he amassing them to use agaisnt our friends. allies and against us."

Two weeks later on Meet the Press. Cheney says "We know with absolute certainty that Saddam is enriching uranium and plans to build a nuclear weapon."

I could go on and on. They sold us BS. 4,300 dead Americans. 32K wounded, $3 TRILLION of our tax $ spent just to get rid of some tin horn dictator.
You forgot several others, but I'll point to this one for you.

In 1990, Biden voted against the first Gulf War after Iraq under Saddam Hussein invaded Kuwait. In 1998, Biden expressed support for the use of force against Iraq, and urged a sustained effort to "dethrone" Saddam Hussein over the long haul. In 2002, as Chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, he stated that Saddam Hussein was "a long term threat and a short term threat to our national security" and that United States has "no choice but to eliminate the threat".He also said, "I think Saddam either has to be separated from his weapons or taken out of power."

Biden also supported a failed resolution authorizing military action in Iraq only after the exhaustion of diplomatic efforts, Biden argued that Saddam Hussein possesses chemical and biological weapons and is seeking nuclear weapons;he subsequently voted in favor of authorizing the invasion of Iraq in 2003. Biden has since said that he believes it was a mistake to support the Iraq War because it has been mismanaged by the Bush Administration. In 2005, Biden said, "We can call it quits and withdraw from Iraq (but) I think that would be a gigantic mistake, or we can set a deadline for pulling out, which I fear will only encourage our enemies to wait us out equally a mistake."

Regarding his belief that Iraq maintained stockpiles of weapons of mass destruction, Biden said in 2007 that inspectors had seen and cataloged the existence of the materials required to make such weapons prior to their expulsion from Iraq and pondered why Saddam Hussein didn't tell the international community that he had disposed of them. stated in July 2002 that most chemical and biological agents produced by Iraq would have been neutralized or degraded in storage, encouraging the Senate Foreign Affairs Committee to convene hearings to reassess the threat. When the committee scheduled hearings in the beginning of August 2002, Scott Ritter, the chief United Nations weapons inspector in Iraq, stated that "Sen. Joe Biden is running a sham hearing. It is clear that Biden and most of the Congressional leadership have pre-ordained a conclusion that seeks to remove Saddam Hussein from power regardless of the facts, and are using these hearings to provide political cover for a massive military attack on Iraq."
