Well, well, well, Chris Wallace jumped in and became a journalist. Why can't all these talk shows do something of this nature? Hold politicians accountable instead of allowing them to "control the message" on important issues.

Feith: Nobody in our office said there was an operational relationship between Iraq and al Qaeda. It’s not correct. Words matter.

Wallace: ...it turns out he did make that case in a memo he sent to the Senate Intelligence Committee in October of 2003. “The Weekly Standard,” which saw the Feith memo, described it this way: “Osama bin Laden and Saddam Hussein had an operational relationship from the early 1990s to 2003.

That involved training and explosives and weapons of mass destruction, logistical support for terrorist attacks, al Qaeda training camps and safe haven in Iraq, and Iraqi financial support for al Qaeda.” Later, VP Cheney said the article was the best source of information on the Iraq/al-Qaeda connection

Hint---hint---hint---Tim Russert....
