Saddam and his weapons of mass destruction were a threat but aren't any longer, got it!
By Max Standard
Well Operation Iraqi Freedom took care of that. I'm not sure how since Saddam is still unaccounted for and the weapons of mass destruction have not been declared non-existent, but President George W. Bush said on April 24 that "one thing is for certain: Saddam Hussein no longer threatens America with weapons of mass destruction" so it must be true.
And there is no reason to concern yourself with Sunday's Associated Press report by Dafna Lizner:
The Iraqi scientist who headed Saddam Hussein's long-range missile program has fled to neighboring Iran, a country identified as a state sponsor of terrorism with a successful missile program and nuclear ambitions, U.S. officers involved in the weapons hunt told The Associated Press.Nope, President Bush said on May 2, "[o}ne thing is for certain: Terrorists will no longer have a source of weapons of mass destruction in the regime that used to be in Iraq."
Nor should you worry about what Josh Marshall's reporting on inadequate steps being taken by the occupying force in Iraq to make sure that knowledge about weapons of mass destruction does not spread. On August 14 President Bush said, "Because of our military, catastrophic weapons will no longer be in the hands of a reckless, unstable dictator. Because of our military, Middle Eastern countries no longer fear subversion and attack by Saddam Hussein," which means that he is right.
Max Standard is an important intellectual who always tells the pro-American truth. His piece "Troops" appeared in yesterday's edition of this blog.
