The Bush-Putin Love Affair Bush and Putin meet recently at the G8. They have a lengthy private meeting. Now, Putin says that he had information that Saddam was planning terror attacks against the United States and that he, Putin, passed this information to Bush in the run-up to the war. The best evidence Bush could have had to go to war - that Saddam was plotting terrorism against the United States - was never mentioned. Putin never mentions it. Bush never mentions it. Until now. This is perhaps the boldest lie so far. Bush's reasons for war have completely fallen apart, so he plots with his buddy Putin - who just last week attacks US Democrats for criticizing Bush - to trot out this lie in the campaign season. Wolf is beside himself over this information. Will the media ask the obvious questions: Why was this kept secret until now? Will the American people fall for so obvious a lie?
