Where have we heard this one before?

As the public's support for the war in Iraq continues to drop we again have the claim that Iraq was involved in 9/11. The twist this time is courtesy of North Carolina Rep. Robin Hayes:

"Told no investigation had ever found evidence to link Saddam and 9/11, Hayes responded, "I'm sorry, but you must have looked in the wrong places." Hayes, the vice chairman of the House subcommittee on terrorism, said legislators have access to evidence others do not."

You know who does have access to that evidence? That's right, Arizona Senator John McCain. Lets see what Sen. McCain has to say:

"I haven't seen compelling evidence of that," McCain, a member of the Senate Armed Services Committee, told CNN."

So as support for the was wanes we have Karl Rove falsely accuse Democrats of not having supported the military action in Afghanistan (which again is unrelated to Iraq,) and now a US Representative claim Iraq was involved in 9/11 based on evidence that apparently only he has seen. And we trust these guys to lead the War on Terror?
