Helen Thomas: "I asked a very simple question: 'Why are we in Iraq, when Iraq did nothing to us?'. Certainly was not tied to 9/11, they were not involved. Ahh, no ties to al-Qaeda, no weapons of mass destruction, but so many people dead."
Apparently Helen and Mark haven't been reading the news about the declassified Iraq documents (doesn't surprise me seeing as how the media has been keeping it quiet...)
Now, I don't speak Arabic, but here's some interesting synopsis of some of the documents:
"Iraqi Minister of Defense calls for an investigation into why documents of WMD nature were found by a UN inspection team"
"IIS report on Kurdish activities, mention of Kurdish reporting on Al Qaida, reference to Al Qaida presence in Salman Pak "
"An order from Saddam Hussein to present $25,000 for the suicide bomber families in Palestine "
"Secret meeting with Taliban group member and Iraqi government"
Ya know Helen, Hitler never did anything to us either. I suppose we could have left him alone no? Personally I think it's reprehensible that we left Hitler and Saddam) alone for so long to conduct their evil.
A "reporter" interviewing another "reporter" who apparently waited three years to ask a politically motivated question . Sad.
