It is an article of faith to the Left that Iraq did not work with Al Qaida - this despite all evidence to the contrary and the absurdity of the premise to start with. It isn't stopping the Left. The latest denial comes from Ron Suskind and his new book claiming the White House had the CIA forge a document showing that Al Qaida leader Mohammad Atta trained in Iraq. Problem is Suskind's argument is laughably inaccurate. It includes some shots at Richard Cheney that reveal the Left's continuing ignorance of a lot of issues, notably Watergate.
What has to happen for the Left to admit Bush was right all along remains a mystery.
