A Washington Post reporterseems to think that Sarah Palin has claimed that Saddam Hussein's now deposed regime in Iraq was responsible for the 9-11 attacks.
This is what she said:
Gov. Sarah Palin linked the war in Iraq with the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks, telling an Iraq-bound brigade of soldiers that included her son that they would "defend the innocent from the enemies who planned and carried out and rejoiced in the death of thousands of Americans."
Sarah Palin quite obviously does not believe that these soldiers are going over to Iraq to defend the innocent from Hussein's regime. He's dead. It's gone.
What she does believe is that they are going over to Iraq to defend the innocent from al Qaeda in Iraq. Al Qaeda did, as I recall, have something to do with 9-11.
