In the final part of it’s report, to be released Thursday, the 9/11 Commission will indicate that there was some cooperation between al Qaeda and an “axis of evil” country in the Middle East, the name of which begins with the letter “i”.

Although evidence of coordination between al Qaeda and Iran is also sketchy (perhaps the Neocons laying the groundwork for the next war?) this latest piece of information lends still more credence (as if anymore was needed) to the fact the U.S. attack on Iraq was entirely arbitrary.

The likely response from the White House, Pentagon or CIA: There’s not much separating a “q” from an “n.”
