I can’t think of a better way to illustrate feeble-minded 9/10 thinking than to memorialize this little exchange between Helen Thomas and White House press secretary Scott McClellan from today’s daily press briefing:

THOMAS: Scott! Why do you keep linking Iraq and 9/11 and so forth? Iraq had nothing to do with 9/11. And you keep–we started the war in Iraq. We brought the terrorists in, so-called (makes quote-unquote gestures with her fingers). People are dying every day in Iraq…

Download and watch the video for McClellan’s (too polite, IMHO) response. (.wmv file)

Question: Will Bush-deranged journalists, so-called, like Thomas ever acknowledge the existence of Saddam’s terror training camps?

Thomas Joscelyn at The Weekly Standard has more today on the story. Must-read. (Hat tip: reader R.D.)

Transcript:

THOMAS: Scott! Why do you keep linking Iraq and 9/11 and so forth? Iraq had nothing to do with 9/11. And you keep–we started the war in Iraq. We brought the terrorists in, so-called.

MCCLELLAN: See I think that’s a misunderstanding of the—

THOMAS: [Unintelligible.] People are dying every day in Iraq!

MCCLELLAN: I think, one, that’s a misunderstanding of the global War on Terrorism that we are engaged in. Some people take a narrow of the war on terrorism. The president recognizes–

THOMAS: [Unintelligible.] –there are innocent Iraqis been paying this price!

MCCLELLAN: Well, first of all, the Iraqi people, we have heard from many of them who have expressed their appreciation–[Thomas interrupting]—for the removal of a brutal and oppressive regime. [Thomas interrupting.] Second of all, Zawahiri, bin Laden’s number two leader, has talked about how Iraq is the central front in the war on terrorism. [Thomas interrupting] We know that the terrorists want to create a safe haven from which they can plan and plot attacks. The stakes are high in Iraq, and that’s why it’s critical that we prevail in Iraq. Because it’ll be a major blow to the ambitions of the terrorists. They don’t want us in the Middle East. The Middle East is a dangerous region of the world. It has been a breeding ground for terrorism, a breeding ground where people have flown planes into building and attacked innocent civilians across the world. And that’s why it’s so critical that we prevail in Iraq as well, and we will, and the Iraqi people no longer live under a brutal, oppressive regime—a regime that was responsible for the systematic torture and killing of people who simply spoke out against that regime.
