No WMD?

The Bush administration has admitted that Saddam Hussein probably had no weapons of mass destruction.

Senior officials in the Bush administration have admitted that they would be ‘amazed’ if weapons of mass destruction (WMD) were found in Iraq.

At this point, I would be “amazed” too.

This is truly frightening. It also makes me wonder — how much cognitive dissonance will supporters of this adminsitration have to maintain just to keep functioning? Especially when, with every executive utterance, they need to come up with new reasons for their support almost every day. And yet they seem to be able to do so without incurring even mild whip lash. It’s like there isn’t a single fact (such as, say, there were no WMD) that will make them wake up and say, “Hey! What are these people doing? This has gone too far!”

Wake up! This has gone too far!
