Default Panetta appears to link al-Qaeda presence with Iraq invasion

Panetta appears to link al-Qaeda presence with Iraq invasion

Quote:
Defense Secretary Leon Panetta on Monday appeared to justify the U.S. invasion of Iraq as part of the war against al-Qaeda, an argument controversially made by the Bush administration but refuted by President Obama and many Democrats.

Panetta made his remarks during his his inaugural visit to Iraq as Pentagon chief. Speaking to about 100 soldiers at Camp Victory, the largest U.S. military installation in Baghdad, he said his primary goal as defense secretary was to defeat al-Qaeda worldwide.

The reason you guys are here is because on 9/11 the United States got attacked,” Panetta told the troops. “And 3,000 Americans — 3,000 not just Americans, 3,000 human beings, innocent human beings — got killed because of al-Qaeda. And we’ve been fighting as a result of that.
Hmmm...

I'll be on the lookout for that big Democratic rebuttal and all of the pundits calling Panetta a liar....

Not even the right is trying to say al-qaeda was in Iraq. I know nobody who believes that. I really don't care what Panetta says. He speaks for himself in this instance
