the war decision came first, the excuse will have to come later

When the U.N. received the Iraqi dossier, it was supposed to have weapons inspectors analyze it, translators translate it, copies copy it, and THEN it was supposed to release it to member states who may need to know its content. But why bother? The 12,000-page Iraqi dossier has already been put in the hands of the U.S. by the ever-cooperating Security Council. The Council even figured it shouldn’t bother doing the copies. Let the U.S. do it. Kind of gives you an idea how things are going.
Meanwhile, the article says, “Inspectors hit several sites, including the alleged center of Iraq’s nuclear program near the Syrian border at al-Qaem. The facility, 400 km (250 miles) northwest of Baghdad, has been alleged to be where Iraq produced “yellow cake” — refined uranium ore — used in Iraq’s nuclear program.
Inspectors also searched an animals vaccine facility, the Al-Furat Chemical Industries General Company, the Ibn al-Haitham research facility in a northern Baghdad suburb and returned to the Tuweitha nuclear site for the fourth time in a week.”
And guess what? They’ve found nothing. But that won’t deter Bush. The Shadow Knows that the Big Bad Bogie Man has weapons and is a clear and present danger, and so he must be eliminated (and the Shadow will also be able to have more gas for his Shadowmobile.)
