Okay move the goal posts back another 100 yards.....

May 31, 2004

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)."

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.

Ivo Daalder and James M. Lindsay:
"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)."

Daalder and Lindsay sure do pick their words carefully! Their spinning would be good fodder for a SNL skit.

It's almost too easy to write the script for the two SNL comedians playing Daalder and Lindsay:

"Although Santorum talked of weapons being found in Iraq, he was alluding to the broken Saracen blades that US troops found in the Iraq museum."
LOL
