A Disturbing Claim

The Wall Street Journal's Melanie Phillips has a story in the UK Spectator about a man who claims to have found Saddam's WMD bunkers:

Saddam’s WMD did exist. [Dave Gaubatz] should know, because he found the sites where he is certain they were stored. And the reason you don’t know about this is that the American administration failed to act on his information, ‘lost’ his classified reports and is now doing everything it can to prevent disclosure of the terrible fact that, through its own incompetence, it allowed Saddam’s WMD to end up in the hands of the very terrorist states against whom it is so controversially at war.

Even if this worst-case scenario is true, the American people should know about it. Any anger directed at the Administration for having "lost" the WMD would, in my view, still be preferable to anger at the Administration for having allegedly gone to war "for no reason," as the conflict's adversaries like to put it.

It's a two edged sword in the hands of defeatists. I agree with you, knowing about it will awaken some sleepy-heads. Maybe an administation that is so "incompetent" could not possibly be as sinister as the conspiracy theorists surmise. Then again, to play devil's advocate, perhaps the true conspiracy is a Govt. that pretends to be so omnipotent to veil it's incompetence. Whenever there is a human element there is the possibility of fallibility. There is only one who was perfect, and maybe that's where the secular humanists fall off the track, trying to replace God with Government. God's laws are eternal. Sufficient and complete.
