Someone knew the truth
I’m not quite sure what to make of this. Is this proof that they were full of poop when they started the war in Iraq? This is from page twelve of a State Department publication called The Network of Terrorism. It was posted on the State Department site on November 10, 2001 and appears to be a PowerPoint style justification for the war in Afganistan.

What’s missing from this map and list?

At the time we were invading Afganistan, we were actively publishing materials that said there was no link between Iraq and al Qaeda. This publication is still up on the State Department's website. No one ever thought to correct their own materials as the official line changed.

Update: Credit where credit is due department. It looks like The Village Voice was the first one to discover the map.
