Chris Cox Update

CHRIS COX UPDATE….Did Rep. Chris Cox (R?Kevin Drum) really say “We continue to discover biological and chemical weapons and facilities to make them inside Iraq”? Brendan Nyhan called him up and the answer is:

  1. Yes.

  2. But the quote got unfairly truncated.

  3. But it doesn’t matter much, because even the full quote is a serious exaggeration of the actual evidence. Sort of like practically every statement about WMD before the war too.
