Howard "YARRRRGH" Dean insists Osama Bin Laden wasn't responsible for 9/11

Democratic National Committee head and former Presidential candidate Howard Dean said on NBC's Meet The Press this morning that Osama Bin Laden had nothing to do with the 9/11 attacks.

But the thing that really bothered me the most, which the 9-11 Commission said also wasn't true, is the insinuation that the president continues to make to this day that Osama bin Laden had something to do with supporting terrorists that attacked the United States. That is false. The 9-11 Commission, chaired by a Republican, said it was false. Is it wrong to send people to war without telling them the truth.
The 9/11 Commission said no such thing.

The Commission certainly questioned the information regarding Iraq's role in 9/11. The Administration has answered that; they insisted that they operated based on faulty information provided by the CIA. But Dean neglects to address that point, only taking the President to task and repeating the party mantra that insists that Bush lied to the American people regarding Iraq.

And now Dean looks to extend that mantra by falsely exonerating Osama Bin Laden.

This makes Dean no better than the terrorists themselves. He's handing them the right to continue to attack Americans on a silver platter. At this rate, any future attacks should lie on Dean's shoulders.

1 He misspoke on a live TV news appearance. Have you ever done that? If you read the whole transcript it's clear that when he said Osama, he was thinking of Saddam. Why did you leave that part out of your rant. Or are you really too stupid to know better?

3 Haywood: Doesn't feel so good when it's one of your guys who misspeaks and corrects himself gets attacked anyway, does it?

4 It is not a "misspeak" (is that a word?) when we are in a war fighting a country for what another man did. Howard Dean mad a mistake. Our president and many people in this country STILL believe there is a Sadam - Bin Laden link, and many STILL believe Sadam had an active and recent WMD program. Dispite the evidence to the contrary. And I believe that one of those people is our President.

5 Bush-haters make the most absurd arguments! Bush never said that Saddam was behind 9/11. He is not responsible for what people believe, and as to WMDs, nobody knew for sure what Saddam had or didn't have, not even, evidently, did Saddam. Now we know and the butcher is gone and that's a good thing.

6 It's not like he confused Barack Obama with Osama bin Laden. That would be unforgiveable. Oh wait, Ted Kennedy did that. Never mind, forgiveable, he's a Dem.
