A fanatic sees something when they believe it.
That is just what Republican Rep. Robin Hayes of North Carolina is, a fanatic.
A Republican congressman from North Carolina told CNN on Wednesday that the "evidence is clear" that Iraq was involved in the terrorist attacks against the United States on September 11, 2001. "Saddam Hussein and people like him were very much involved in 9/11," Rep. Robin Hayes said.
When asked about the fact that no investigative body has ever found any link between Saddam and 9/11, he replied:
"I'm sorry, but you must have looked in the wrong places."
Oh? And where should we have been looking?
Hayes, the vice chairman of the House subcommittee on terrorism, said legislators have access to evidence others do not.
So, is he admitting that the government did not turn over all the information to the 9/11 commission? Is he saying that the government has been hiding evidence from the American people?
The 9/11 commission could find no evidence. Bush could cite no evidence. I'm sorry, but if there was one iota of evidence that there was any link between Saddam and 9/11, Bush would have undoubtedly revealed it by now. Hayes is just another nutty fanatic in Congress that should not be there.
