rJune 26, 2004 "Probably" is apparently the word du jour for Vice President Dick Cheney.

Earlier this week on the floor of the U.S. Senate, Mr. Cheney used a four letter expletive in advising Senator Patrick Leahy what he could do with himself. When asked whether he had said such a thing, Mr. Cheney replied "probably"

Earlier in this month, during the course of an interview, the Vice President repeated his frequent claim that Saddam Hussein and Al Qaeda were in close collaboration. Since this contradicted the conclusions reached by the interim report of the 911 Commission, he was asked if he had information that the Commission did not possess. Mr Cheney replied, "probably".

Although all experts and most people agree that Iraq had no role in the 911 attack, polls show that prior to our invasion of Iraq 50% or more of the American people believed that Iraq was jointly responsible for 911. How did they come to form this false impression? Could it have been that President Bush and Vice President Cheney created it? Probably.
