Former White House Press Secretary Ari Fleischer defended an ad campaign aimed at convincing Congress to support President Bush’s strategy for Iraq. ” ‘Nine-one-one absolutely is a bona fide, legitimate reason to remind people what’s at stake,’ he said. ‘The point is not that Iraq was responsible for 9/11. They’re not. But 9/11 should be a vivid reminder to everyone about how vulnerable our country is and that’s why we need to win in Iraq.’ ”
