robbins-hayes.jpg ON the premiere of Real Time with Bill Maher, Tim Robbins told Cheney's new BFF, Stephen Hayes to apologize for writing a book that tried to link al-Qaeda and Saddam so that it would appear he was in on the 9/11 attacks. And as C&L and many other blogs have been arguing is why are these people still considered "experts?"

Robbins: You're partly responsible, you could start with an apology. You wrote a book saying there was a connection Saddam Hussein and al-Qaeda.

Hayes: You want to know why I wrote that book? Because there was a connection Saddam Hussein and al-Qaeda.

Maher: No there wasn't.

Robbins: You can lie a thousand times---it doesn't make it true.

Everyone knows that this was more propaganda from Hayes, but it landed him a nice paycheck to write a Cheney book. The White House continually linked the two together so it made it easier for the public to accept the attack on Iraq. To the detriment of the world it worked. However, once the American people caught on to the lies of the Cheney/Bush administration---and their warmongering puppets---they turned.
