Is that really what happened the other day? The Senate rejected an amendment to pull our troops out of Iraq? I guess the ignorant readers of the Washington Times (owned by the Rev. Sun Myung Moon)might want to believe that.....but it's a lie. What actually happened is that a minority of Republican Senators voted against allowing a vote on whether to pull out of Iraq or not (cloture vote). Why did the Republicans do that? Because a majority of Senators would vote to begin pulling troops out of Iraq. Although Bush would almost certainly veto such a bill.

I'm just wondering. Do conservatives really believe headlines like that? Do they really buy the story Tony Snow is selling in a guest editorial in USA Today?
We never argued that he (Saddam)played a role 9/11; political opponents manufactured the claim to question the president's integrity.
Does the Washington Times and Tony Snow think their readers are stupid? Surely anyone can search the internets and see that Snow is lying. How about this line in the joint resolution to authorize force in Iraq?
Whereas members of al Qaida, an organization bearing responsibility for attacks on the United States, its citizens, and interests, including the attacks that occurred on September 11, 2001, are known to be in Iraq;
Why does 40% of the population of the USA believe that Saddam was involved in the 9/11 attacks?

Snow goes on to say:
Al-Qaeda doesn't have the strength it had six years ago, but it remains committed to killing Americans.
The recently released National Intelligence Estimate seems to disagree with Tony boy.
Six years after the Bush administration declared war on al-Qaeda, the terrorist network is gaining strength and has established a safe haven in remote tribal areas of western Pakistan for training and planning attacks, according to a new Bush administration intelligence report to be discussed today at a White House meeting.
And more here.

Just who are the people that buy in to this claptrap?
