Shooting Fish In A Barrel. Bush, June 17, 2004: "This administration never said that the 9/11 attacks were orchestrated between Saddam and al Qaeda."

Bush, in a letter to the Speaker of the House of Representatives and the President Pro Tempore of the Senate, dated March 18, 2003 (link at the White House website): "Consistent with section 3(b) of the Authorization for Use of Military Force Against Iraq Resolution of 2002 (Public Law 107-243), and based on information available to me, including that in the enclosed document, I determine that ... acting pursuant to the Constitution and Public Law 107-243 is consistent with the United States and other countries continuing to take the necessary actions against international terrorists and terrorist organizations, including those nations, organizations, or persons who planned, authorized, committed, or aided the terrorist attacks that occurred on September 11, 2001." [bolding by me]

Well, to be fair, he didn't use the word "orchestrate." I guess he's not lying.
