A tribute to Condoleeza Rice and George W. Bush who, despite voluminious evidence to the contrary, said, "I don't think anybody could have predicted that these people would take an airplane and slam it into the World Trade Center, take another one and slam it into the Pentagon, that they would try to use an airplane as a missile," adding that "even in retrospect" there was "nothing" to suggest that" and "I don't think anyone anticipated the breach of the levees," respectively.

Doesn't Seem Plausible, But if You Say So... 

From Meet the Press, September 14, 2003

VICE PRES. CHENEY: No. I don’t know Joe Wilson. I’ve never met Joe Wilson.

Intersection in History:

From 1988-1991, Wilson was the Deputy Chief of Mission at the U.S. Embassy in Baghdad, Iraq. He was the last official American to meet with Saddam Hussein before "Desert Storm."

Mr. Cheney also served a crucial role when America needed him most. As Secretary of Defense from March 1989 to January 1993, Mr. Cheney directed two of the largest military campaigns in recent history - Operation Just Cause in Panama and Operation Desert Storm in the Middle East.

The Secretary of Defense during Desert Storm doesn’t know the last official American to meet with Saddam before the conflict began. Okay.
