Jeebus. They just can’t stop:
Ahead of a five-day trip to Europe, Vice President Dick Cheney said Thursday that the administration has not given up on the so far fruitless search for weapons of mass destruction in Iraq. The â€œjury is still out,â€ he said.
â€œItâ€™s going to take some additional, considerable period of time in order to look in all the cubby holes and the ammo dumps and all the places in Iraq where you might expect to find something like that,â€ Cheney said in an interview with National Public Radio. â€œIt doesnâ€™t take a large storage space to store deadly toxins, or even just the capacity to produce it.â€
Cheney also said that heâ€™s confident that there was a relationship between al-Qaida and ousted Iraqi leader Saddam Hussein. The Bush administration, however, has said in the past that there is no evidence that Saddam was behind the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks.
â€œI continue to believe â€” I think thereâ€™s overwhelming evidence that there was a connection between al-Qaida and the Iraqi government,â€ Cheney said. â€œIâ€™m very confident that there was an established relationship there.â€
The Administration says that there is no evidence. Dick Cheney thinks there is “overwhelming” evidence.
