Don't forget Rumsfeld's memo:
He told his underlings to make a connection between 911, Osama bin Laden, and Saddam Hussein.
"Go massive." "Sweep it all up. Things related and not."
"Rumsfeld Files Reveal Pre-9/11 Focus on Iraq"
Later we found out that the Bush administration had war plans in place before 911 for BOTH Afghanistan and Iraq:
"US planned war in Afghanistan long before September 11"
"The Afghanistan War was Planned
Months Before the 9/11 Attacks"
