Final Word: No WMD
Search for Banned Arms In Iraq Ended Last Month
Bush has expressed disappointment that no weapons or weapons programs were found, but the White House has been reluctant to call off the hunt, holding out the possibility that weapons were moved out of Iraq before the war or are well hidden somewhere inside the country. But the intelligence official said that possibility is very small.
So, do we now shift to the secondary argument? Sadaam was a tyrant and tortured his people? And now that he's gone, the people are 'safer' and there is no longer any 'torture' in the country?
Elephant is all for using America's might as part of its foriegn policy. But no WMD, $220 Billion in taxpayer money and worse yet 1,200 lives, I'm still unsure of the utility of this endevor.
