Daviid Corn does a good job on the way Bush has reacted to the 9/11 commission’s conclusions on the (non-)link between Hussein and al Qaeda: Bush sticks to misrepresentations on the al Qaeda link. From Corn’s conclusion:
At this point, if Bush–who keeps mischaracterizing the Zarqawi connection–wants anyone to believe him rather than the 9/11 commission, he better present hard and clear evidence. All that he offers is assertions and misrepresentations. No wonder he initially opposed the creation of the 9/11 commission. It can be awfully irritating to be confronted with a factual record and reasonable analysis.
