Duelfer Report

I also heard this today. Unsurprisingly, the media are focusing hardest on the fact no WMDs were found in Iraq rather than on Saddam's intent to reconstitute his WMD programs, the crumbling UN sanctions regime or the Oil-For-Food bribery revelations.

It is simply premature to state with any degree of certainty that Iraq had no WMD. After all, China still finds Japanese chemical weapons caches dating from WWII. But if the media thinks it makes Bush look bad...

Michael Barone thinks the report makes a good case for war. It's too bad Bush didn't forcefully emphasize this during Friday's debate.
