Man…that was a common talking point of the left leading up to Operation Iraqi Freedom. IIRC, the Administration was trying to make the case that the Hussein regime was a main sponsor of international terrorism. Seems like the left wanted to skew that as saying ‘the Bushies claim Iraq was responsible for 9/11’

Bush did spend an entire National Address on the Iraq war trying to make the link. Here’s the CSM’s coverage: csmonitor.com

The National Review was still flogging it in June of 2004 nationalreview.com

Cheney did think so, but later (sort-of) denied it: open.salon.com

While I don’t think Bush ever came out and said it directly, the Administration seemed to have a policy of thinking it was convenient for people to think so.
