Presidential Malepractice

Trying to link prior terrorist attacks to Iraq is no means for justifying going to war on faulty intelligence and an active imagination. Because we weren't there then is not a case for being there now. This logic is shameful and a reprehensible attempt to mislead the public. I think Moxie Grrrl coined the phrase, but I sure wish there was a law agains "presidential malpractice."
We were not in Iraq in 1993, when the terrorists tried to blow up the World Trade Center in New York. We were not in Iraq in 1998, when the terrorists bombed our embassies in Kenya and Tanzania. We were not in Iraq in 2000, when the terrorists killed 17 American sailors aboard the USS Cole. There wasn't a single American soldier in Iraq on September the 11th, 2001, when the terrorists murdered nearly 3,000 people in the worst attack on our home since Pearl Harbor.
