The Treasure Hunt for WMDs

PoliticWhere exactly are those WMDs? It seems a lot of people are starting to ask that question. How about the change in spin by U.S. officials -- From Colin Powell's presentation to the UN on the "proof" of WMDs in Iraq back in January to Rumfeld's comments late last week that "I don't think we'll discover anything, myself..." "I think what will happen is we'll discover people who will tell us where to go find it. It is not like a treasure hunt where you just run around looking everywhere, hoping you find something." It is clear that the administration is getting worried about how long proof might take to find. Wing Cmdr. Sebastian Kendall who is leading efforts on the ground said of the current search efforts “It’s very young,” he said. “It’s in its infancy.”

Why the sudden change in tune? After searching most of the top sites in the initial hit list and finding nothing, defense planners are becoming worried that in the general looting, former Iraqi officials stole weapons and materials that they will sell in other countries. Despite unheaded calls by Jay Garner's team to secure more ministries in Baghdad than just the oil ministry that the troops initially protected (but the war was not about oil right?), we have finally moved to secure many more facilities. They are also concerned by reports that most of the weapons were ordered destroyed by Iraqi leaders as U.S. troops moved in.

It would be unfortunate if by attacking Iraq -- WMDs, precursor material/equipment, scientists and instructions that would have stayed in Saddam's hands as a potential threat end up widely available in street markets in Syria, Jordan, Iran, etc sold to the highest bidder and used by a new generation of terrorists spawned by heatred for our attack on Iraq.

When inspectors couldn't find WMD, W's spinmeisters said that was evidence enough of the evilness of Wham-bam-Saddam.

Now that captured Iraqi soldiers say there aren't WMD they know about, the spin is that they're distancing themselves from Iraqi leadership.

Nonsense. We had really good intelligence about WMD, right? That was the pretense for the war. Let's go follow those damn leads!

FaceTime, Apple's video-calling technology, is great for iPhone and Mac ... but there's no official Facetime for PC  Windows app that's been released by Apple.
