Plastered all over the favorite websites of the neoconservative war party are headlines trumpeting the news – WMD’s found in Iraq! From FoxNews:

“Report: Hundreds of WMDs Found in Iraq”,2933,200499,00.html

The Senator from warmongering, Rick Santorum, pulled his head out of his ass long enough to read the news of a newly declassified pentagon report detailing the find:

“"Since 2003, coalition forces have recovered approximately 500 weapons munitions which contain degraded mustard or sarin nerve agent. Despite many efforts to locate and destroy Iraq's pre-Gulf War chemical munitions, filled and unfilled pre-Gulf War chemical munitions are assessed to still exist."”

You can put your head back, turkey… This is old news – we’ve been hearing about these finds every few months for two years now. As the recycled report states:

“The weapons are thought to be manufactured before 1991 so they would not be proof of an ongoing WMD program in the 1990s.”

Old weapons, old news… And no ongoing program; no thousands of liters of anthrax, no thousands of rounds of nerve gas. A few hundred rotted rounds found here and there, leftovers from the Iran war and the mostly destroyed pre-Desert Storm stocks.

What has really been found here? What has been found is the neocons are desperate for good news to bolster their popularity, and they think the American people are stupid enough to confuse 2003 with 1990 and hundreds with thousands…

What remains to be seen is whether or not they’re right. My bet is they’re wrong again…

You bet we're hoping for good news. Even when there is good news, all we get is bad news.
