Iraq - No WMD's, ya hear me? No--WMD's!

US gives up on search for nonexistent WMD's:

Bush's comments came as the White House said the US had quietly halted its search for Weapons of Mass Destruction (WMD) in Iraq, the key reason for going to war.

"Well, like you, I felt like we'd find weapons of mass destruction," Bush said, according to excerpts released from an ABC television interview.

"Or like many, many here in the United States, many around the world, the UN thought he had weapons of mass destruction, and so, therefore, one, we need to find out what went wrong in the intelligence gathering. Saddam was dangerous. And .. the world was safer without him in power," Bush commented.

Asked whether it was worth it to invade Iraq even without WMD found, Bush replied, "Oh, absolutely." Meanwhile, the White House confirmed the US has ended the physical search for WMDs in Iraq.

So, there was nothing. Bush just says "Gee, we thought he had something...". Just how sure of themselves were they back when they were selling us this garbage back in '03?

...Powell also showed satellite photos that he said indicated the presence of "active chemical munitions bunkers" that had been disguised.
Those were followed with photos he said illustrated the facilities had been "sanitized" before U.N. inspectors arrived....


Powell also gave the most detailed explanation yet of possible links between Baghdad and al Qaeda.
He said high-ranking Osama bin Laden lieutenant Abu Musab Zarqawi, who is an expert in chemical and biological weapons, led a terrorist network that had been operating freely in Iraq for more than eight months.

So, back in 2003, Saddam not only had active chemical weapons factories, but we knew where he had them. And, to boot, he had an Al Queda mastermind in country who was an expert on chemical and biological weapons.

Now, in 2005, we cannot find any chemical weapons, even in places we "knew he had them", and
Zarqawi has turned out to be an independent terrorist, who only recently declared his allegiance to Osama. And, by the way, has not used any of his supposedly extensive knowledge of WMD's in attacking US soldiers. Rather, he (and the rest of the insurgents) have been making great use of all the freely accessible munitions that were 'liberated' when we invaded.

Just how stupid does the Bush administration think the Ameri......oh, I get it.

Never Mind.
