Oh I see... everyone in the world (Clinton, Bush, Powell, most of Congress, the UN, etc.) has been lying about the WMD for years except you and JohnGalt. Y'all are in good company with Ritter and Blix. You could at least add some humor like Baghdad Bob. Give me a break already.
First of all, I am a female : ) Maybe you did not listen to Powell very well...
"We know that in late January, the Iraqi Intelligence Service transported chemical and biological agents to areas far away from Baghdad, near the Syrian and Turkish borders, in order to conceal them," U.S. Secretary of State Colin Powell said on Wednesday. "And they have concealed them from the prying eyes of inspectors."
In an address to the Washington-based Center for Strategic and International Studies, Powell did not identify or say how many BW and CW weapons were transferred by Iraq. But Powell and other officials said Iraq is believed to have produced such agents as anthrax, VX and botulinum toxin.
So yes...the Bush administration HAS confirmed it. And no, we have not gone in yet, but Bush just signed the Syria Accountability and Lebanese Sovereignty Restoration Act of 2003 last month, which "seeks to punish Syria for its alleged ties to terrorism by authorizing economic and diplomatic sanctions against Damascus". So we are applying pressure.
