Weapon of Mass Destruction in Fallujah

When I first heard about the discovery of this lab, I shuddered and figured that the Bush Administration would start crowing about how they were right all along about Iraq and WMD.

This morning, however, I woke up to CNN and realized that this lab supposedly belonged to the insurgents, not to the Ba'ath Party. Oh joy.

War in Iraq: Stopping terrorism and removing the threat of WMD. Or the opposite of that. I'll have to check my notes.

Let me see...
Saddam's regime: No WMD; no al-Quada connections.
U. S. occupied Iraq: Overflowing with terrorists who apparently are developing WMD capabilities.

"Mission accomplished."

Just a Quick Post...

I've been wanting to write something about the turnover of cabinet members for Bush II, but I haven't had the chance to do the proper research yet.

I just want to say that while most of the people leaving were expected to leave, the administration's nominations for their replacements is terrifying. Everything that I fear to see in a second term for these guys (and gals) is being set up by these nominations.

Condi: Replacing one of the only sane foreign policy voices in the government with one of the most insane voices. I am sure that Rice is a very smart person, but putting the author of "How to Mismanage the Hegemony: 2001-2004" in place as the face of American foreign policy is deeply disturbing.

Likewise the new AG. Ashcroft's departure was not unexpected, but now we have the author of the memo explaining why the Geneva Conventions do not apply to the United States as the Executive Branch's primary defender of civil rights in America. If you happen to be in a cell in Gitmo, just hang yourself now. You'll never see home again.

Anyone notice this guy's record in Texas? Or his peculiar strategy when briefing GWB on death row inmates?

I've heard a mumble, though, that the nominee for Secretary of Education is not actually evil. I am guessing that I just haven't done my research yet.

Seriously people, it is time to organize.
