We knew after all before the war that there was a very good chance the WMD were pretty much gone. That is unless you were listening to the President or anyone in his administration or the intelligence community or the media. Of course this man told us but not many listened, Bomb Saddam, Save the G.O.P.
Today the Washington Post says it's sorry for not doing its job. Sorry it has cost tens of thousands of lives and hundreds of billions of dollars, The Post on WMDs: An Inside Story.
