The Smell Of Desperation In The Morning

Washington Post (07.01.06):
"Do the 20-year-old Iraqi chemical munitions found by U.S. and coalition forces support the prewar contention that Saddam Hussein had weapons of mass destruction, and justify the invasion of Iraq?" Munitions Found in Iraq Renew Debate
Yes, say some Republicans. "Committee Chairman Duncan Hunter (R-Calif.) contended that an April report by the U.S. Army's National Ground Intelligence Center (NGIC) is clear evidence of Hussein's weapons of mass destruction." Ha! What a joke. This was crap left over from the Iran-Iraq war. The GOP is trying so hard to make something of this to justify the invasion. On the other hand, why don't we ask someone who knows something? CBS (06.23.06):
"Hundreds of chemical weapons found in Iraq were produced before the 1991 Gulf War and probably are so old they couldn't be used as designed, intelligence officials said Thursday. (I)ntelligence officials, who spoke on condition of anonymity because of the subject's sensitive nature, said the weapons were produced before the 1991 Gulf War and there is no evidence to date of chemical munitions manufactured since then. They said an assessment of the weapons concluded they are so degraded that they couldn't now be used as designed." Weapons Found In Iraq Old, Unusable
David Kay, "who headed the U.S. weapons-hunting team in Iraq from 2003 until early 2004": "'It is less toxic than most things that Americans have under their kitchen sink at this point'". As in it would fuck you up if you drank it, but it wouldn't kill bugs.
