“And because George Bush has said so—facts be damned!”

Of course, some of this is the President’s own fault. Early in the war when they started to find various caches of WMD’s the White House said that those weren’t the WMD’s they were talking about before the war. I expect that it was because they didn’t want to open up that discussion again, but it was still pretty dumb.

It was a very dumb move--and now, most of the media believes that there was never any evidence of WMD in Iraq. The fact of the matter is that we have found substantial evidence of WMD in Iraq. I'll give two examples, just to start off:

1) Polish military officials were able to buy chemical weapons warheads from so-called Iraqi insurgents, for about five-thousand dollars a piece in 2004, per the BBC ("Troops 'foil Iraq nerve gas bid,'"BBC News, July, 2004).

2) In 2004, we managed to seize 1.77 metric tons of highly enriched, weapons grade uranium from a facility in Iraq. ("US reveals nuclear operations," BBC News, 7 July, 2004.)

There are several other incidents, from around the same time--June to November of 2004--in which evidence of WMDs was found. Timing is a funny thing, especially during an election cycle.
