"The Republican Party linked Saddam Hussein with 911."
No, that is not true. Osama bin Laden was linked as the mastermind behind 9/11 and, because the Taliban, who controlled Afghanistan, gave him safe harbor, they were invaded.
Government officials DID suspect a relationship between Hussein and Al Qaeda but never stated that Saddam Hussein ever supported or even knew about the 9/11 attack.
If you can provide credible documentation that Bush and Cheney stated outright or or insinuated that Hussein was linked to the 9/11 attack, please provide it.
