Santorum said many more WMD sites had been found, but were still 'classified'. The problem seems to be that the admin. thinks they've moved on, that WMD's was an argument they didn't win, so why revisit it despite the fact that they have proof the weapons were there in numbers. Insane. Why not just hand the keys to the WH and congress to Hill so she can take things away from us that we already have...for the common good.
They are at war with us, of course they will discredit it. My question to everyone is, how are you supporting the effort on our side?
Denial: It's not just a river in Egypt anymore.
Sounds more like some Kos-mosexual's blog entry.
A: Because some of the weapons are still useful for killing and destroying.
2) Much of what is said in this blog is based again on conversation with unnamed "Pentagon" officials, etc. and we are supposed to dismiss this find since the weapons are considered to be "no threat". I've yet to see someone who is arrested with an illegal substance be acquitted because the substance is "no threat".
3) What has been declassified is only a small part of the entire report. We don't know what else is in the report. Why has the left not demanded the immediate declassification of the entire report if they are so sure this is "bogus"? Further, why have they not demanded to know why this is classified in the first place?
4) What we may be seeing is only the hint of a "trump" card being played in a "game" that is much larger than just the finding of WMD in Iraq. The obvious question should be which contries supplied the materials for Saddam to make these weapons and did these same countries help him make post-91 weapons? Methinks we may see both China and Russia show a little more interest in both North Korea and Iran in the next few weeks.
Why aren't the liberals interested in these questions? Cognitive dissonance may prevent them from asking the obvious questions.

We still don't know where the sarin shell came from--and whether or not there are more of them out there. "Yet more than a year later, American troops still have not found any weapons of mass destruction (unless a single artillery shell, produced in the 1980s, that possibly contained sarin nerve gas, counts)."Wishful Thinking on Sarin Weekly Standard ^ | June 14, 2004 [Because The Left Forgets] | Michael Goldfarb Posted on 11/15/2005 1:50:33 PM EST by conservativecorner
SO SAID Ivo Daalder and James M. Lindsay in the Los Angeles Times, on May 31, 2004. Such statements are fairly typical of the media's disdain for the mere suggestion that significant caches of weapons of mass destruction existed in Iraq at the time of the U.S.-led invasion in March of 2003.
(Denny Crane: "Every one should carry a gun strapped to their waist. We need more - not less guns.")
This moving of the goal posts really pi$$es me off. These are danagerous weapons and proves that Saddam had not destroyed them.
Recommend all doubting parties personally examine WMD specimens and sample their contents ASAP.
$6 billion in direct costs, five dead soldiers and 40 wounded, not to mention hundreds of dead Iraqis, for each unusable round. Heckuva job, George.
It is nice to know that these materials are harmless. We should bring them back as trophies of war and display them. (Outside the New York Times seems like a good spot.)
This would demonstrate how safe these "old, deteriorated" weapons are.
Today we mourn the passing of a beloved old friend, Mr. Common Sense.
Mr. Sense had been with us for many years. No one knows for sure how old he was since his birth records were long ago lost in bureaucratic red tape. He will be remembered as having cultivated such value lessons as knowing when to come in out of the rain, why the early bird gets the worm
and that life isn't always fair.
Common Sense lived by simple, sound financial policies (don't spend more than you earn)and reliable parenting strategies (adults, not kids, are in charge).
His health began to rapidly deteriorate when well intentioned but overbearing regulations were set in place. - Reports of a six -year old boy charged with sexual harassment for kissing a classmate; teens suspended from school for using mouthwash after lunch; and a teacher fired for reprimanding an unruly student, only worsened his condition.
Mr. Sense declined even further when schools were required to get parental consent to administer aspirin to a student; but, could not inform the parents when a student became pregnant and wanted to have an abortion.
Finally, Common Sense lost the will to live as the Ten Commandments became contraband; churches became businesses; and criminals received better treatment than their victims.
Common Sense finally gave up the ghost after a woman failed to realize that a steaming cup of coffee was hot, she spilled a bit in her lap, and was awarded a huge financial settlement.
Common Sense was preceded in death by his parents, Truth and Trust, his wife, Discretion; his daughter, Responsibility; and his son, Reason. He is
survived by two stepbrothers; My Rights and Ima Whiner.
Not many attended his funeral because so few realized he was gone.
I knew this would be the response. What's inconvenient for the democrats, and nobody talks about this, is that Richard Clarke and David Kay testified under oath that Saddam was 12 to 18 months away from having a nuclear weapon. Well, not anymore.:o) And all I can say is thank you President Bush.
Here is how the liberals are responding to the announcement of the discovery of WMDs in Iraq. They are using quotes from FOX News Chanel's Jim Angle, to discredit the announcement:
"Fox News Jim Angle contacted the Defense Department who quickly disavowed Santorum and Hoekstras claims. A Defense Department official told Angle flatly that the munitions hyped by Santorum and Hoekstra are not the WMDs for which this country went to war.
The liberals then say they are degraded weapons and are no threat, so they really aren't WMDs.
My responses is that the reason fro the UN Sanctions were to find and destroy all of Iraq's WMDs and the onus was on Iraq to do so. 500 degraded shells filled with nerve agents are still extremely lethal from all I have read and heard. It would be great to hear from someone who can verify this.
