Really???  I am still absolutely flabergasted when I think of how easily the public were fooled by this.  I have to reiterate though, how I believe that GW Bush cannot be blamed for this.  His only crime is his innate stupidity (case in point:   "The French don't have a word for entrepreneur", just one quote of very many) and his slavish obedience when he was told to "shut up and say exactly as you are told to say).  Hey, this could a lesson for all Americans, who the president is, is very unimportant.  He's just a "mouthpiece" after all.

However, for anyone who didn't already realise this, years ago, the following article explains:

http://www.washingtonsblog.com/2012/10/5-hours-after-the-911-attacks-donald-rumsfeld-said-my-interest-is-to-hit-saddam-he-also-said-go-massive-sweep-it-all-up-things-related-and-not-and-at-2.html

5 hours after the 9/11 attacks, Donald Rumsfeld said “my interest is to hit Saddam”.
 
He also said “Go massive . . . Sweep it all up. Things related and not.”
 
And at 2:40 p.m. on September 11th, in a memorandum of discussions between top administration officials, several lines below the statement “judge whether good enough [to] hit S.H. [that is, Saddam Hussein] at same time”, is the statement “Hard to get a good case.” In other words, top officials knew that there wasn’t a good case that Hussein was behind 9/11, but they wanted to use the 9/11 attacks as an excuse to justify war with Iraq anyway.
 
Moreover, “Ten days after the September 11, 2001, terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon, President Bush was told in a highly classified briefing that the U.S. intelligence community had no evidence linking the Iraqi regime of Saddam Hussein to the [9/11] attacks and that there was scant credible evidence that Iraq had any significant collaborative ties with Al Qaeda”.
 
And a Defense Intelligence Terrorism Summary issued in February 2002 by the United States Defense Intelligence Agency cast significant doubt on the possibility of a Saddam Hussein-al-Qaeda conspiracy.
 
And yet Bush, Cheney and other top administration officials claimed repeatedly for years that Saddam was behind 9/11. See this analysis. Indeed, Bush administration officials apparently swore in a lawsuit that Saddam was behind 9/11.
