Shorter Joscelyn

Osama Bin Laden calls a jihad after American's bomb muslims. Since Saddam dispatched a guy who met with Bin Laden. And, since we cannot be sure that this meeting had anything to do with Osama's America hating, even though the 9/11 commision has found no collaborative operational relationship between Saddam and Osama. We here at the Daily Standard still think its important to let you all know that Saddam Blew up the World Trade Center from his golden toilet in the East wing of his Baghdad palace. He was having phone sex with Osama Bin Laden at the time.

Please disregard all government reports stating anything to the contrary. And don't forget, we are fighting them over there so we don't have to fight them over here. Even though on 9/11 we didn't really have a chance to fight them over here cuz they blew themselves up too fast.

(I thought the Standard was populated by folks who believe that democratization was the truest justification for the war in Iraq, why are they hashing out these old lies?)

UPDATE: Also noteworthy is this quote from the enlightened beings at Powerline:
reports of a relationship between Saddam and bin Laden continued until the eve of the war in Iraq.

Yes because up until the eve of war with Iraq practically every newspaper would print the false justification for the war as the justification of the war.
