All those years of "Where's the WMDs?", generally thrown mockingly. Now, some of us knew that WMDs had been found in Iraq - the general media just didn't report it. We also knew that a lot of them got sent to Syria during the build up to the invasion - the head of the Iraqi program himself pointed us that way. But all these years people of accused Bush of leading us into war over something that didn't exist.
Last week, pigs flew again. I don't know what's gotten into the New York Times recently, but suddenly it's occasionally actually reporting and it published a piece about the thousands of WMDs found in Iraq after the invasion, about soldiers being injured by them, about how some of them got shipped to Syria. They pointed out that satellite photos showed transports swarming weapons dumps and then heading for the border. Yeah, I'd already seen those photos. I also already knew about our soldiers being injured. The fact that I could find that just by spending time researching through Google kinda makes me wonder how much the NYT pays its reporters.
But, it's funny. I haven't heard a peep from the usual bash-Bush, "Bush lied and soldiers died" crew. You'd think that at least Hillary Clinton, John Kerry, and Harry Reid would point out that their YES vote to go to war has been vindicated. And you'd think they'd step up and say, "See, Bush was right - Saddam had WMDs".
Yeah, I was only kidding about that. That would require integrity.
