For those who may have forgotten (and I envy your talent for it), members of the administration, including most notably former Vice President Dick Cheney, continued to contend that Hussein was connected to the perpetrators of 9/11, Al-Qaeda, for literally years after the alleged connection had been thoroughly debunked.
