But a history of failure never seems give pause to the neo-cons. Check out a comment made Thursday on MSNBC's Hardball by Frank Gaffney, a neo-conservative security "expert," who is still trying to make the case that Saddam Hussein was tied to U.S. terrorism.
Note especially his effort to have it both ways, claiming there's "compelling circumstantial evidence" but that this evidence is "not proven by any means."
Here is Gaffney's outlandish claim involving the Oklahoma City bombing:
There‘s also circumstantial evidence, not proven by any means, but nonetheless some pretty compelling circumstantial evidence of Saddam Hussein‘s Iraq being involved with the people who perpetrated both the 1993 attack on the World Trade Center and even the Oklahoma City bombing.
