Greg Palast on .:Democracy Now!:.
What we have to understand is that our president said, I actually just looked at his speech from last March 17. He said we're going into Iraq to get those who have aided, harbored and trained terrorists, including those associated with al Qaeda. That's a quote, from our President, and he didn't find any people connected to al Qaeda that were there with Saddam Hussein's support. But now that we are there — now it's like it's a welcome mat for al Qaeda now. So, the question is, is our President correct? Is he correct that we are safer? Yeah. He's right. There may well be al Qaeda in Iraq, but they didn't come until after our tanks arrived.
