Report says X is Up, movement conservatives reply that report proves X is Down

Via Think Progress

On March 13, the Pentagon released a detailed study (pdf) confirming “no direct link between late Iraqi leader Saddam Hussein and the Al-Qaeda network.” But oddly, numerous conservatives and Iraq war supporters — including the Wall Street Journal — have cited the report as vindication of their theories about a Saddam Hussein-al Qaeda alliance.
They exist in their own reality, governed by their own rules of logic. Apparently, on their bizarro Earth-2, "no direct link" means "a direct link."
