There's overwhelming evidence there was a connection between al Qaeda and the Iraqi government. I am very confident that there was an established relationship there.
More serious evidence the GOP is in systemic decline & demise
From the Washington Post:
[so what they lean liberal?, their facts are consistent].
Outside of Idaho, where Dems can really smell blood (& take action), it would not surprise to have it unfold like this: as the economy gets better, the GOP, who has this secular narcissitic narriative floating around their brains that they're on track to win back Congress, suddenly realizes about Halloween---that ain't gonna happen.
If you think they're crazy now, just wait until then. Of course, none of this applies to Idaho, not yet anyway.
