Gov. Palin Washington Post blows it

Washington Post blows it By Michelle Malkin  •  September 12, 2008 07:31 AM

In a page 1 news story, Washington Post reporter Anne Kornblut accuses Sarah Palin of asserting “that the Iraqi government under Saddam Hussein helped al-Qaeda plan the attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon.”

Just one problem: Palin said no such thing. She simply said that Iraq-bound U.S. troops would “defend the innocent from the enemies who planned and carried out and rejoiced in the death of thousands of Americans.”

As McCain Campaign blogger Michael Goldfarb notes, “It seems we are to assume that this group [al Qaeda in Iraq], despite sharing a name and leadership with the group responsible for the 9/11 attacks, has nothing at all to do with those who ‘planned and carried out and rejoiced in the death of thousands of Americans.’”

No connection at all?
