I was just thinking about this when I came across this post at Atrios's manor. The Bush campaign must not be going so well.
President Bush said Monday that the U.S. is studying whether Iran had any role in 9/11.
"We will continue to look and see if Iranians were involved," Bush said. "I have long expressed my concerns about Iran. After all, it's a totalitarian society where people are not allowed to exercise their rights as human beings."
The CIA continues to maintain that there is no connection.
Ok, this begs a couple of questions: the first is how the hell would he know what rights human beings are supposed to have? Secondly, seriously, WTF? Is the administration now going to cook up some intel that shows a connection between Iran and 9/11 and use that as an excuse to invade Iran? And what is he going to use for an army?
The question is not whether the Bush Administration would do this but whether the press are going to give them the same pass they did the Iraq War.
