Powell, then and now



“I have not seen smoking-gun, concrete evidence about the connection” between Iraq and al Qaida.

– Secretary of State Colin Powell, 1/9/04


THEN


“I want to bring to your attention today [to] the potentially much more sinister nexus between Iraq and the al-Qaida terrorist network…al-Qaida affiliates based in Baghdad now coordinate the movement of people, money and supplies into and throughout Iraq for Saddam’s network, and they have now been operating freely in [Baghdad].”

– Secretary of State Colin Powell, 2/5/03


This is also know as “making shit up”. In related news



Three experts at the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace said in a report yesterday that the Bush administration systematically misrepresented a weapons threat from Iraq, and U.S. strategy should be revised to eliminate the policy of unilateral pre-emptive war.
