Yeah, you could say, "Damn eight years late and a few billion short", but okay better late than never.

Rep. Hinchey: Bush Administration 'Intentionally Let bin Laden Get Away' In Order To Justify Iraq War
Quote:
On Monday afternoon, Rep. Maurice Hinchey (D-New York) told MSNBC host David Shuster that the Bush administration "intentionally let bin Laden get away" in order to justify the Iraq war.

Hinchey is from a historically Republican district (though it includes Democrat-heavy in places like Woodstock and Ithaca) and his statement seemed to shock Shuster.

"Look what happened. Look what happened with regard to our invasion into Afghanistan. How we apparently intentionally let bin Laden get away. How we intentionally did not follow the Taliban and al Qaeda."

Hinchey alleged that bin Laden was let go because "the previous administration... knew very well that if they would capture al Qaeda there would be no justification for an invasion in Iraq."

Shuster, incredulous, pushed back: "You really believe that?"
...

Uh, yeah David. Where you been all this time?

Shuster's usually pretty good with comebacks, and he may have been trying to get Hinchey to say more...but that's not to say that Shuster could have simply been so taken aback by the fact that someone was actually criticizing Bush in this public way...and about this subject, that he really was very surprised. I'd sure like to know what was being said into Shuster's little earpiece! :wink:

It is so shocking to actually hear something true in media, perhaps Shuster was surprised? It is hard to believe he didn't already know about this.
