Alan Colmes on H&C said they were the "wrong WMD" and were "all pre-1991 and unusable" and that this report doesn't mean anything, implying that the release was for a Santorum election boost. The impression I had from the 2 congress-critters was that they found out about this report from an outside-the-government source, and only got access to it because they asked specifically for this report.
They said that Intelligence will only provide any information to congress if you know exactly what to ask for. That makes me wonder if part of the issue isn't so much the preference for 'closedness' of the Bush administration, but that the Intelligence Agencies are playing the same game with this kind of info they are with translation - 'we don't have the resources, that report isn't ready to be released, we don't have enough info to put together the pieces of the puzzle', etc.
Offering the official administration response to FOX News, a senior Defense Department official pointed out that the chemical weapons were not in useable conditions.
"This does not reflect a capacity that was built up after 1991," the official said, adding the munitions "are not the WMDs this country and the rest of the world believed Iraq had, and not the WMDs for which this country went to war."
