We see Orrin Hatch and countless of Republican apologists continue to pretend that Iraq had something to do with Al Qaida in order to justify the clusterfrack in Iraq.
Then there's the United Arab Emirates. And what's the UAE record on terrorism?
The UAE was one of three countries in the world to recognize the Taliban as the legitimate government of Afghanistan. The UAE has been a key transfer point for illegal shipments of nuclear components to Iran, North Korea and Lybia. According to the FBI, money was transferred to the 9/11 hijackers through the UAE banking system. After 9/11, the Treasury Department reported that the UAE was not cooperating in efforts to track down Osama Bin Laden's bank accounts.
We bomb Iraq which had nothing to do with 9/11, yet we hand UAE the keys to our ports.
That's the Bush Administration in action.DailyKos)
