Rachel Maddow: "Why We Did It" - The Invasion of Iraq (FULL VIDEO)
The House vote came hours after President Bush released an interim progress report that says the Iraqi government has failed to meet most key benchmarks set by Congress. These include the passage of a U.S.-backed oil law heavily criticized by Iraqi unions. Speaking at the White House, Bush dismissed recent polls showing 70 percent of Americans back a withdrawal and called on Congress to continue funding the war. The president also repeated his erroneous linkage of the Iraq War to 9/11. President Bush: "The same folks that are bombing innocent people in Iraq were the ones who attacked us in America on September the 11th, and that’s why what happens in Iraq matters to the security here at home."
UK Officials: Iraq War Planning Predated 9/11 Attacks
In Britain, a hearing into Britain’s involvement in the Iraq war opened on Tuesday with testimony that the drumbeat for war predated the 9/11 attacks. British officials said they began hearing of US plans to invade Iraq nearly two years before the March 2003 invasion. The head of the inquiry, Sir John Chilcot, said the panel would be unsparing in its criticisms. Sir John Chilcot: "No one’s on trial here. We cannot determine guilt or innocence. Only courts can do that. But I make a commitment here that once we get to our final report, we will not shy away from making criticisms either of institutions or processes or individuals where they are truly warranted."
Former Terrorism Czar Criticizes Bush 9/11 Response
President Bush’s former terrorism czar Richard Clarke is publicly accusing Bush of ignoring the threat posed by Al Qaeda up until Sept.11, 2001 and that after the US was attacked, Bush wanted to immediately to strike Iraq. According to a new book by Clarke, Bush said on the evening of Sept. 12: "Go back over everything, everything. See if Saddam did this." When Clarke responded that Al Qaeda was responsible, Bush said "I know, I know, but . . . see if Saddam was involved. Just look. I want to know any shred."
9/11 Commission Debunks White House Justification For Iraq War: No Link between Iraq and Al-Qaeda
Cheney Defends Iraq Invasion; Claims Iraq-9/11 Link
Vice President Dick Cheney yesterday aggressively defended the administration’s handling of Iraq saying there is no reason to "think that the strategy is flawed or needs to be changed." Cheney claimed that the White House, which last week asked for $87 billion in additional funding, had not underestimated the cost of war. He described the Iraq operation as a "major success" and claimed that Americans are being viewed as "liberators" in Iraq He also continued to make long debunked allegations linking Iraq to the attacks of Sept. 11. At one point Cheney claimed Iraq was the "geographic base" for the Sept. 11 attack. And despite doubts from both the FBI and CIA, Cheney claimed that one of the hijackers, Mohamed Atta, may have met with an Iraqi intelligence officer five months before the attack. Cheney however said little about Saudi Arabia’s ties to Sept. 11. He said "I don’t want to speculate." He then went on to say Sept. 11 is "over with now, it’s done, it’s history and we can put it behind us." Cheney’s comment came as polls show hat Americans are more concerned than ever about the President’s handling of the Iraq situation. A new Washington Post/ABC News poll found six out of 10 Americans opposed Bush’s request for $87 billion.Bush, Unlike Cheney, Rejects Iraq-9/11 Link

After Ron Suskind Reveals Bush Admin Ordered Iraq-9/11 Fakery, House Judiciary Chair John Conyers Opens Congressional Probe
Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Ron Suskind joins us for part two of an interview on his new book, The Way of the World: A Story of Truth and Hope in an Age of Extremism. Suskind reports that in 2003 the White House ordered the CIA to forge and disseminate false intelligence documents linking al-Qaeda and Iraq. While much of the attention on the book has focused on the forged letter, Suskind also reveals that the Bush administration and the British government knew prior to the war that Iraq had no weapons of mass destruction. We also speak to Rep. John Conyers, chair of the House Judiciary Committee, which is investigating some of the explosive findings in Suskind’s book.
Another Former Intelligence Official Blows the Whistle on 9/11
Veteran Pentagon Middle East analyst Peter Molan speaks out on the invasion of Iraq, his work on the 9/11 investigation and why he is protesting in front of Walter Reed Medical Center today. [Includes transcript] Peter Molan, Department of Defense Middle East analyst for 25 years. He began his military career with the US Army in the Middle East during the 1967 Arab-Israeli War. Went on to work at the Department of Defense until August 2001, when he retired. After the 9-11 attacks, he was recalled to duty because he speaks fluent Arabic. He was one of the people working on the bin Laden dossier for the Pentagon.

Not long after the planes hit the World Trade Center and Pentagon, Molan received a call from the Pentagon saying his services were once again needed. Fluent in Arabic, he was pulled out of retirement to work on the bin Laden case for the Defense Department. After four months of work, Molan went back to retirement. Then he began hearing the Bush administration amplifying the rhetoric against Iraq, implying that Saddam Hussein was tied to the 9-11 attacks. "The justifications for that war were completely counter to everything that I had learned in that 20-odd years of government service working on the Middle East," Molan told Democracy Now!. "I was simply outraged by the twisting and turning of intelligence information that I had helped develop to what was clearly, to my mind, a preordained policy decision that I felt to be profoundly wrong. Nothing about this suggests that Saddam Hussein was anything but a brutal dictator. He was. But that’s not why we went to war." Molan said that due to restrictions on revealing classified information, he cannot discuss details of his work on the bin Laden/9-11 investigation. "But what I can tell you," he said. "Is that my involvement, my direct, immediate involvement, day-to-day involvement with Veterans for Peace arises precisely out of the subsequent decision by the Bush administration to go to war with Iraq."

Gore Vidal on the "United States of Amnesia," 9/11, the 2000 Election and the War in Iraq
On Sunday, Sen. Bob Graham accused the Bush administration of engaging in a "cover-up" of intelligence failures before and after the Sept. 11 attacks to shield it from embarrassment, and said the war with Iraq has allowed al-Qaeda and other groups to become a greater threat to Americans than ever before. This according to a report in the Los Angeles Times. Graham, a presidential candidate and former chairman of the Senate Intelligence Committee, also accused the administration of jeopardizing the safety of Americans by blocking the release of a landmark congressional report on the government failures that preceded the attacks on the World Trade Center and Pentagon. The Florida Democrat said the White House has withheld from the public important information about the continued existence of terrorist cells in the United States — including some with ties to foreign governments that the U.S. has been afraid to go after. Graham’s critique in many ways is similar to one that appeared in a book that recently topped the New York Times bestseller list. The book is Dreaming War: Blood for Oil and the Cheney-Bush Junta. The author is Gore Vidal. Gore Vidal is one of America’s most prolific and best-known writers. He has written more than 22 books and more than 200 essays. A collection of his essays won the National Book Award in 1993.
Bush Continues 9/11-Iraq Linkage
As the U.S. bombings continue, President Bush appealed for more public support for the Iraq War at home. Speaking at Charleston Air Force Base in South Carolina, the president repeated what has now become his nearly daily linkage of the war in Iraq to the 9/11 attacks. President Bush: "Some say that Iraq is not part of the broader war on terror. They complain when I say that the al-Qaeda terrorists we face in Iraq are part of the same enemy that attacked us on September the 11th, 2001. They claim that the organization called al-Qaeda in Iraq is an Iraqi phenomenon, that it’s independent of Osama bin Laden and that it’s not interested in attacking America. That would be news to Osama bin Laden."

Media's Iraq War Coverup In A Nutshell
To help this war for oil, Fox News helped to spin the soldier deaths as 'not so bad' given the bed of lies it was being marketed in (they spun it the other way for Benghazi! i.e. 4 people became more important than 4000+ killed for oil profits!);
THE WORD - PERSPECTIVE OCTOBER 26, 2005 - There's nothing wrong with the number 2,000. Hell, five years ago we were celebrating it. (3:41)
Note: The "liberal media" is basically the GOP's "news for liberals". Since liberals prefer facts, and are willing to read/watch other news sources in search of facts, the only way the "liberal media" can bend news to benefit their owners is to cover it up. Why covering up truth to make lies sound more true helps these corporations is anyone's guess.Mine is that it's basically GOP/9/11 guys in control/on-the-boards.
