It becomes quite an excercise to try to think of a single issue on which the ideological, extremist Bush administration has not been discredited. The latest example comes from the government's 1,000-page report by chief U.S. weapons inspector Charles Duelfer, called "most definitive account of Iraq's arms programs," writes The Washington Post.
The officials said Duelfer, an experienced former United Nations weapons inspector, found that the state of Hussein's weapons-development programs and knowledge base was less advanced in 2003, when the war began, than it was in 1998, when international inspectors left Iraq.
"They have not found anything yet," said one U.S. official who had been briefed on the report.
More than 1,000 American soldiers killed, not to mention tens of thousands of Iraqis, and hundreds of billions of dollars of tax funds wasted on an ideological war that went awry and this guy has the temerity to seek re-election?
