War in Iraq Is Gone on Fox

Reported by Donna - August 3, 2005

I've been monitoring Studio B since January and they have been using two banners - one that states 'The War on Terror' and another that states 'The War In Iraq'.

Well, I haven't seen the banner 'The War In Iraq' lately. So, with this in mind, I waited for the story that would follow 'The War on Terror' banner today.

Sure enough, the 'War on Terror' was a story on the 'War in Iraq'.

While Fox managed to blur the lines between the war on terror and the war in Iraq at the beginning of the war in Iraq, we've since learned from the 9/11 Commission Report that there were no links between Saddam Hussein and Al Qaeda.

In fact, we know that most of the reasons for going to war with Iraq have since been found to be false. There were no weapons of mass destruction, Iraq was not a nuclear threat, they had no ties to Al Qaeda, yet this administration spoke about mushroom clouds.

Maybe Fox is right, maybe Iraq is now a war on terror, but if it is, then it is this administration who is to blame, because there was no war on terror in Iraq before we invaded them.

And the war on terror? In Afghanistan we've seen more Al Qaeda and Taliban attacks and we've failed to secure Osama Bin Laden. We've seen attacks in Spain and England. And domestically? Only time will tell, but there is an awful lot of grumbling about the money that was spent in Iraq that could have done a great deal to secure our own country.

Our hearts go out to the 14 American soldiers killed today and the 6 that were killed two days ago. 43 U.S. soldiers have been killed in Iraq in the last 10 days.
