Speaking to American troops in Iraq:

“The reason you guys  are here is because of 9/11. The U.S. got attacked and 3,000… human beings got killed because of al Qaeda.”

U.S. Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta

This is news to me. I didn’t know Iraq had any connection with 9/11 and thought there were no al Qaeda in Iraq when we invaded. Does Leon know something we don’t know? Was he brainwashed, or just jet-lagged?
