"President Bush Was Right"

As Investors Business Daily points out, evidence continues to emerge suggesting that there were, indeed, WMD in Iraq.

Once again Carol tries valiantly only to founder on the shoals of logic. The IBD piece combines all of the prominent theories--massive semi convoys, air lifts in civilian jets, and Spetznatz commandos--in the hope of finding something, anything, that might gain some traction. Unfortunately, nothing will gain any traction until it passes the "smell test."

In its simplest form, the smell test lies in answering one simple question. It is the same question I have asked repeatedly and that neither Carol nor anyone else has ever even attempted to answer.

No one can deny that the failure to find WMD in Iraq has had huge negative impacts for the United States both on the international and on the domestic front.

Internationally, U.S. standing in both the Middle East and around the world stands in tatters because no WMD were found in Iraq. This limits our options in handling other situations of national interest (e.g., Iran).

Domestically, the administration's political credibility has been shredded because no WMD were found in Iraq. This is one of the primary drivers behind the cratering of public support for the war in Iraq.

Given the corrosive effects of the failure to find WMD in Iraq, why doesn't the adminstration provide evidence that Iraq WMD were shipped to Syria if they have it? What does the Bush administration have to gain by refusing to prove that Iraq had WMD exactly as they claimed prior to the invasion?

Until someone can provide a persuasive answer to this simple question,it is clear they are grasping at conspiratorial straws.

You'll find things will more easily pass the "smell test", Mr. Twister, when you get your head out of the sand.

You can't smell anything like that.

A perfect response to your non-argument.

Grasping at straws? Not likely. I think one problem is that by revealing what is on the tapes, we would also be telling the world that our "allies" France and Russia aided Saddam in moving the weapons to Syria. Unfortunately, we kind of need them right now. Plus, if this information comes out, many in the intelligence community may lose their jobs.

These are NOT good reasons to not come forth with this information. However, I think these are reasons why the information is so slow moving. Politics is pretty dangerous, isn't it?

However, the media did have a huge story on their hands with these tapes in February, I guess they didn't want to admit that (maybe - just maybe) Bush was right. Just give the facts for heaven's sake! Instead, they focus on anything else they can.

The fact is, these tapes are authentic and they discuss moving the weapons and attacks on America.

So what is going to be done?

Why doesn't some news channel talk about them before anyone else? I mean talk about them in depth - not the 15 minutes they got IN ALL from the other 3 stations.

Bunch of Chickens!
