WMD found

In the right-wing blogosphere. Okay sort of. Okay not really. It was just, you know, "capabilities." Which, coincidentally, is the word Bush turned to when his face wouldn't form the words: "I made a mistake." A NYT story reported that some materials that could be used to manufacture parts for WMD were looted. While it's fun to watch loony-toon right-wingers dance with glee due to sub-par reading comprehension, it's important to note that: A. There were no WMD facilities in Iraq (without enriched Uranium, a nuke is just a bomb) and B. Bush left dangerous facilities unguarded, weapons from which are now far more likely to come into contact with enriched Uranium. In a nutshell: Right-wing patriotism. (Peek)
