Tom- Are you deliberately trying to confuse the 9/11 attack by Osama Bin Laden of Afghanistan for Dubya's goat otherwise known as Saddam Hussein and Iraq? Afghanistan was haven for the Taliban/Al Qaeda that originated the plotted attack against the US. OBL is the terrorist most responsible for master minding 9/11 and is in the back of cave somewhere, probably Pakistan or Syria, sipping lemonade. Iraq was ran by a dictator that murdered his own people and refused our nuclear inspectors access, and violated fly zones. Hussein was then brought to justice and put to death for crimes against humanity, while the Iraqi people run amuck among civil unrest and daily violence even today. And now they are conditioned to become welfare recipients of the US government via hard working Americans.
