Joe Lieberman is taking a page out of Dick Cheney's playbook and carefully connected al-Qaeda to Iran with an answer he gave to Nora O'Donnell on MSNBC moments ago. Much has been made of McCain's foreign policy gaffe on his middle east tour when he said that Shia/Iran was training the Sunni/al-Qaeda. Lieberman had to whisper the correct answer in his ear at that time to correct that fallacy. However, we can see a clear pattern of deception the Senator from CT is using to try and once again confuse the American public about the nonexistent ties between al-Qaeda and Iran.

Liebermann: ...we can do it on conditions on the ground, but if we just pull out there will be chaos, maybe genocide and al-Qaeda and Iran will win.

Al-Qaeda is a very small percentage of the resistance that is on going in Iraq as we all know. Why hasn't Holy Joe addressed the ethnic cleansing that has already occurred in Iraq between the Sunni and Shia's militias in Baghdad alone? Joe can't do that and admit the horror that he has enabled already. His only hope is to confuse the public into thinking that al-Qaeda is aligned with Iran. Have you no decency, sir?

Can you help us out?
