The question that weighs on my mind remains. Why did Bush allow the "no weapons were found" lie continue to be told.

For the longest time, I was convinced that the administration was merely playing a big game of rope-a-dope, which it used to do very effectively.

Yet the lie is now truth. It was told often enough that "factual" nature of the mantra has settled with the American public. The damage is done, so it doesn't matter how much new evidence comes forth.

Even more perplexing is the fact that Bush contributed to the lie himself. One recalls the joke he played on himself at a Washington Press Club dinner (or some other event) where he went "looking" for the weapons while up on stage.

With this stunt, even the discovery of a cache of nuclear war-heads will barely provide the administration when any moral weight since the administration itself seems to have written off the "weapons" exist argument.

Perhaps there was a reason for this. If so, can somebody please explain?

Nobody wants to hear it. The lie of "Iraq had no WMDs" has spread so far and wide that anything, including the truth, is heresay and neocon wet dreams. Sad really, because if you dug up the bekka valley you would find all kinds of WMDs...

"... mobile labs, some of which were buried ..."


So .. Powell was correct in his statements to the UN about the mobile labs.

In the liberal world, WMDs will never be found. Not if a hundred Shahab-3s were found in an bunker, WMDs were not found.

If the White House was converted into a plutonium-ringed crater and Osama Bin Laden appeared on CNN announcing he got it from Saddam, WMDs were not found.

If poison gas was sprayed over all of Europe and they were plunged back into the days of the Black Death, and Mohammad Al Ima Gona Killu was on TV proclaiming it came from Iraq, WMDs were not found.

If every single liberal on planet Earth was rounded up by crazed Muslim militants in Iraq, and were systematically tossed into a swimming pool of nerve agent so acidic that the bodies vaporized on contact, the very last liberal tossed in would proclaim "Bush lied! No WMDs were ever found!" with their last dying gasp.

["Both mustard and nerve agents were used against U.S. troops in Iraq in 2003."]

Okay, I'll play the devil's advocate. Tell me where the evidence is?

As far as the Left is concerned, that we didn't find WMD 5 minutes after we entered Iraq, everything from that point on is a lie. The Left never did and never will want to know the truth about ANYTHING that upsets them.

My Soldiers found a rather large stockpile of chemical weapons in Iraq on their last deployment. For some reason it was all hushed up very quickly. No one knows why.

I think the Iraqi documents release and jveritas' translation of them the MSM running scared. Todays crawl on msnbc repeats the story of the two trucks that were found to have been possible mobile WMD labs. They are trying to say that Bush lied about them to the American people. I have no doubt about WMD presense in Iraq before, during and after the initial war there. The MSM has it's credibility on the line on this one and will stop at nothing to smear the President and this administration. Why? Because they hate him. Nothing else. Just hate.
