Al Qaeda, Iraq, and Google 2001

While looking at Sal’s Google 2001 “timesuck”, I discovered something that isn’t a timesuck at all. After Googling “Osama Bin Laden Iraq” on Google’s 2001 site and index, I found this article from 2000 in the Guardian about the connections between Al Qaeda and Iraq on the USS Cole bombing.

So let me get this straight.  In 2001, the first page results of a search on the liberal Google search engine for “Osama Bin Laden Iraq” led to the left-wing Guardian’s article about a connection between Iraq and Al Qaeda, all before Bush was President.  The same people who have calling the President a liar for the last eight years?

What’s even better is that the search took about four and a half seconds.   I wonder what a twenty second search would have revealed?  Seems like Google forgot to rewrite their history on this one.

A practical timesuck… I think that may be a first! Seriously, it has always been amazing to me how the left, inclusive of the media, gets away with re-writing history. It is interesting to compare the results of searching for “weapons of mass destruction in Iraq” in 2001 and 2008.
