-- Awol McCodpiece on Saddam Hussein.
Bush/Cheney purposely let bin Laden escape in order to justify Iraq war, get “re”elected.
On Monday afternoon, Rep. Maurice Hinchey (D-New York) told MSNBC host David “duh?” Shuster that bin Laden was let go because "the [mis]administration... knew very well that if they would capture al Qaeda there would be no justification for an invasion in Iraq."
Shuster, incredulous, pushed back: "You really believe that?"
Hinchey, himself incredulous that Shuster could be such a fucking blind doucheknob, replied "Oh, there's no question about that because the leader of the military operation in the United States called back our military, called them back from going after the head of al Qaeda because there was a sense that they didn't want to capture him."
Shuster began talking over Hinchey: "You can accuse them of malfeasance, you can accuse them of dropping the ball, of having an awful plan, and all of them would be justified, but to suggest that they would deliberately let, deliberately let Osama bin Laden get away so they could justify the war in Iraq... That will strike a lot of people as crazy."
Hinchey leaned back and smiled wrily. "I don't think it'll strike a lot of people as crazy. I think it'll strike a lot of people as very accurate."
