WASHINGTON — Throw the flag on: Sarah Palin.

Call: Pass interference.

What Happened: On the 7th anniversary of the Sept. 11, 2001 terrorist attacks, Palin linked Iraq to those attacks.

“You’ll be there to defend the innocent from the enemies who planned and carried out and rejoiced in the deaths of thousands of Americans,” Palin told an Army brigade in Alaska that will ship off to Iraq later this month.

Why that’s wrong: The bipartisan National Commission on Terrorist Attacks Upon the United States said it found “no credible evidence that Iraq and al Qaida cooperated on attacks against the United States.”

The panel also said that contacts between al Qaida and Iraq before the attacks “do not appear to have resulted in a collaborative relationship.” Source Article
