    Anyone see The Daily Show last night. Here is an article on Rumsfeld's screwup.



    Rumsfeld mixes up U.S. foes Saddam and bin Laden
    10 Sep 2004 19:37:57 GMT

    Source: Reuters

    WASHINGTON, Sept 10 (Reuters) - U.S. Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld mixed up al Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden and deposed Iraqi President Saddam Hussein twice in a speech on Friday about the war against terrorism.

    Critics accuse the Bush administration of having concentrated on going after Saddam at the expense of the hunt for bin Laden whose al Qaeda network carried out the Sept. 11 attacks.

    Saddam is imprisoned after being captured by U.S. forces in Iraq, while bin Laden has not been found.

    In a speech to the National Press Club on the eve of the third anniversary of the Sept. 11 attacks, Rumsfeld began by saying the world just before the attacks was not as serene as some people now suggest.

    "The leader of the opposition Northern Alliance, Masood, lay dead, his murder ordered by Saddam Hussein, by Osama bin Laden, Taliban's co-conspirator," Rumsfeld said.

    He was referring to Ahmad Shah Masood who was in opposition to the ruling Taliban in Afghanistan and was killed by al Qaeda two days before the Sept. 11 attacks.

    Later in responding to a question, Rumsfeld again confused Saddam and bin Laden in a discourse about how U.S. and coalition actions had made it more difficult for terrorists to operate.

    "It's harder for them to travel between countries, it's harder for them to communicate with each other, it's harder for them to raise money, it's harder for them to transfer money, it's harder for them to buy weapons, it's harder for them to do everything," Rumsfeld said.

    "Saddam Hussein, if he's alive, is spending a whale of a lot of time trying to not get caught. And we've not seen him on a video since 2001," Rumsfeld said.

    "Now, he's got to be busy. Why is he busy? It's because of the pressure that's being put on him," he added.

    The moderator later asked Rumsfeld if he had meant bin Laden, and the defense secretary replied: "I did. I meant we haven't seen Osama bin Laden."

    what an idiot..
    he's one of those fools who was foaming at the mouth for a decade to get Iraq..
    he signed the now famous letter to Clinton in 97..he/wolfiwitz,pearl, cheney, feith...
    saying they would support Clinton if he attacked iraq..

    you would think Saddam raped their mothers !!
    this loser also asked 'Can we tie this to S.H." (saddam Hussein) at about 10:30 on the morning of 9-11-01!!

    Not theirs but plenty of Iraqi's. Somehow that doesn't seem to bother you bman.

    Oh yah I forgot, Iraq under Hussein was Disneyworld in your eyes.

    As long as you are consistent in your belief in "pre-Emption" pope. I expect to see you leading the charge for pre-emptive invasions on Iran, Syria, North Korea and China on this board. All of those nations are bigger potential threads to the US than Iraq was.

    Consistency of view, right.

    Don&#39;t count on it, Warfish. People like pope are so gung-ho about this war and about pre-emptive strikes but they&#39;re certainly not lining up to fight these wars. It&#39;s all good as long as somebody else does the dying.

    Just think...if North Korea delcared war on the USA tomorrow, the&#39;re be no way for us to mount an effective defense, thanks to Vietnam II. And unlike Iraq, N Korea really DOES have the capacity to make mushroom clouds appear over our cities. Too bad people don&#39;t think anymore.

    I can&#39;t wait for Pope&#39;s response to this dunghole.....

    pope&#39;s response will be about as insightful as a fart&#33;
    "saadm was bad"..he tortured plympic athletes&#33;&#33;
    that sums up Pope&#39;s response&#33;

    No no no pope, you&#39;re not getting off the hook this time. Don&#39;t give me the typical GOP response and not give an answer. Go ahead, give me a response..an itelligent one. I&#39;ll listen and respond in kind. I want to hear what you have to say about leading the charge. Come on. I thought Republicans were tough guys&#33;

    NE Hick, instead of swinging on pope&#39;s nutsack begging him for a response, why don&#39;t you give a response yourself? You are capable of just such a thing, are you not? Hello, McFly?

    You&#39;re right pope, some of us here don&#39;t know you in the real world or your family. Personally, I would be interested to hear what you had to say, re: defending freedom and the USA. I was unaware you, or members of your family, were in the Millitary. If you don&#39;t mind my asking, where and what did you do, where have you served?

    By the way, I know it&#39;s sometimes hard to gauge my intent when I ask a question. This is in no way an attack on you or your views, just interest in what you have done, millitary service wise. Just so I am being clear (or at least trying to be, LOL&#33;)
