WMD UPDATE….We found some old mortar shells full of blister gas in southern Iraq on Friday. WMD at last! War supporters must finally feel vindicated, right?
Instapundit: “It appears to be genuine, but it’s hardly news: Saddam gassed people, after all, so we know he had WMD.”
Andrew Sullivan: “Of course, we’ve had stories like this one before and they haven’t panned out.”
The Corner: “Just realized this story has not been mentioned in The Corner yet.”
Eugene Volokh: “I’ll believe it when more thorough tests are done — in the past, supposed discoveries of chemical weapons haven’t panned out.”
That’s a remarkably restrained reaction, no? Perhaps they’ve finally learned their lesson.
