Take A Short Walk Off A Long Pier

Talk about timing. From the Washington Post:

There is "no credible evidence" that Saddam Hussein's government in Iraq collaborated with the al Qaeda terrorist network on any attacks on the United States, including the Sept. 11, 2001 hijackings, according to a new staff report released this morning by the commission investigating the hijacking plot.
Although Osama bin Laden briefly explored the idea of forging ties with Iraq in the mid-1990s, the terrorist leader was hostile to Hussein's secular government, and Iraq never responded to requests for help in providing training camps or weapons, the panel's report says.

The findings come in the wake of statements Monday by Vice President Cheney that Iraq had "long-established ties" with al Qaeda, and comments by President Bush yesterday backing up that assertion.

President Bush commented today that, if he and Vice President Cheney "can just find a way to repair the flux-compacitor," the two will travel back in time to April of 1995; where, at the "Baghdad Ball," Osama bin Laden almost asked Saddam Hussein to dance, but chickened-out and got beat up by Biff instead.

The President then went on to say that, after making sure bin Laden asks Hussein to dance, he will play guitar with Chuck Berry's brother and "do that crazy thing where he hops around on one foot".
