What Part of “No WMD” Don’t You Understand?

WHAT PART OF “NO WMD” DON’T YOU UNDERSTAND?….Even David Kay is now telling the White House that they need to get their heads out of the sand ? literally:

The Bush administration is hampering efforts to improve intelligence by clinging to the false hope that weapons of mass destruction may be found in Iraq, the former chief U.S. weapons inspector said Thursday.

“My only serious regret about the continued holding on to the hope that eventually we’ll find it is that it eventually allows you to avoid the hard steps necessary to reform the process,” David Kay said in an interview with The Associated Press.

David Kay is on the side of the angels here and he’s also the guy with the most ground level experience in this. They really ought to listen when he tells them to knock off the crap and start getting serious.
