Heard: Missing Link Between 9/11 and Saddam Hussein

Intern insists on having the last question during an informal question-answer forum with a high level official in the Department of Defense attended primarily by senior staffers (and one intern).

In-the-Know Intern authoritatively states that he is an “INTERN for Representative’s Office” and ferociously asks, as if he’s found the smoking gun, what the official thinks of “Cheney’s” recent comments that “9/11 and Saddam Hussein were not linked.” The Defense official demurely states that he didn’t think that there ever was a link between 9/11 and Saddam Hussein, and In-the-Know Intern proceeds to argue his point with the senior official. In-the-Know Intern finally realizes he's not getting anywhere, looks like a hurt puppy and sits down.

Senate staffers stifle their snickers. . . .
