No Evidence Connecting Iraq to Al Qaeda, 9/11 Panel Says

This Washington Post article has a great quote:
There is "no credible evidence" that Saddam Hussein's government in Iraq collaborated with the al Qaeda terrorist network on any attacks on the United States, according to a new staff report released this morning by the commission investigating the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks.
Followed by:
The findings come in the wake of statements Monday by Vice President Cheney that Iraq had "long-established ties" with al Qaeda, and comments by President Bush yesterday backing up that assertion.
In my opinion, the Bush administration has a history of getting away with playing loose with the truth - hopefully this will change by election day. (As another example: comments about the "Clean Air Act" - in my opinion, the worst case of "non truth telling" besides issues dealing with Iraq.)
