bgill—boy, how I wish I knew the answer to that. I’ve asked that question over and over, and never received a satisfactory answer. Usually it’s something like “national security” but honestly, that one makes no sense.

” Usually it’s something like “national security” but honestly, that one makes no sense. “

Here’s a speculation —

The revelation of the full WMD story would have revealed facts that would have constituted ‘casus belli’ against Russia (remember the reports - since swept under the rug and lost - in the runup to OIF that a batallion of Russian Special Forces were escorting convoys to Syria??) and China...

There is a possiblilty that the Bush Administration was subjected to nuclear and economic blackmail from our erstwhile ‘allies’, if the subject of WMD wasn’t dropped....

/speculation
