Former Vice President Dick Cheney said CIA intelligence he cited to connect Saddam Hussein with the 9/11 attacks was wrong, Bloomberg is reporting.

Even though the information “turned out not to be true,” Cheney said Saddam had a history with terror groups, including al Qaeda, that necessitated the U.S. invasion of Iraq.


“I thought it was strong at the time and I still feel so today,” Cheney said at the National Press Club. “There was a relationship between al Qaeda and Iraq that stretched back 10 years. That’s not something I made up.”

Well, it’s nice to know he didn’t make it up because, you know, that would be wrong.

Whew! I’m just glad we got that information before we did something dangerous in Iraq.

To tell you the truth, I forget why we invaded Iraq in the first place. Something about women of mass demonstrations or something.
