9/11 and Iraq 

While writing that last post, I'm listening to Giuliani in the other room. Another blatant attempt to create a false connection between Iraq and 9/11, despite the fact that Iraq is and was, in Michael Moore's words:
A nation that had never attacked the United States. A nation that had never threatened to attack the United States. A nation that had never murdered a single American citizen.

Giuliani said this:
And it was here in 2001, in the same lower Manhattan, that President George W. Bush stood amid the fallen towers of the World Trade Center, and he said to the barbaric terrorists who attacked us, "They will hear from us."

Well, they heard from us.

They heard from us in Afghanistan and we removed the Taliban.

They heard from us in Iraq, and we ended Saddam Hussein's reign of terror.

And we put him where he belongs, in jail.
Was Bush actually promising that he would attack Iraq that day? Were there terrorists in Iraq that had been involved in 9/11? I ask again - are there any Bush-supporters out there who still read this blog with any thoughts on this matter? I really want to know: do you think this administration has been responsible for linking 9/11 and Iraq? Do you deny this, do you defend Bush's saying it, or do you think that it's true?
