No connection between Iraq and Terrorism or preventing another 9/11?

By: Seth Leibsohn from Bill Bennett's morning radio show..

--Prior to our liberating Iraq, master terrorists Abu Nidal, Abu Abbas, and Abu Zarqawi lived and operated in Iraq.

--Prior to our liberating Iraq, Saddam Hussein tried to assassinate a former U.S. President.

--Prior to our liberating Iraq, Saddam Hussein invaded an ally and attempted to invade another to control the world's oil supply.

--Prior to our liberating Iraq, Saddam Hussein fired missiles into Israel.

--Prior to our liberating Iraq, Saddam Hussein endowed and paid homicide bombers in Israel (bombers with American blood on their hands).

--Prior to our liberating Iraq, Saddam Hussein used chemical and biological weapons on Kurds and Shiites.

--Prior to our liberating Iraq, Saddam Hussein fired at British and American planes in the no-fly zones.

--Prior to our liberating Iraq, Saddam Hussein ran a terrorist training camp in Salman Pak.

--Prior to our liberating Iraq, Al Qaeda bombed the USS COLE. The USS COLE was bombed in Yemen because it was enforcing sanctions against Iraq. Containment did not work!

Knowing that we should have liberated Afghanistan before 9/11; would it be smarter to have left this regime in place?

Richard Clarke was a hero for saying we should have taken out Afghanistan before they could attack us; the liberation of Iraq was our first effort to act in prevention of another state-sponsored attack on us.
