#2 I hate to sound political (LOL) but I suspect that Bush WILL sit on this until sometime next year. By that time every sniveling French-loving demoncrat will have spewed out all they could about 'phantom weapons'. Then Bush shows his royal flush and wins the game. Plausible? I think so. Can you imagine what Dean would do then? Daschele would have a nervous breakdown on the Senate floor.
#3 I hope this is right. But if there is one lesson for news junkies from the Iraq war, it's don't jump at the first news reports. That goes for good news and bad and it has been ignored to varying degrees by both camps.
It seems pretty plausible that there will be WMDF evidence found at some point. It also seems clear that the programs were not as extensive as previously believed. The politicization of all news reports is becoming absurd, although I do hope it has been useful in making people think harder about the deeper issues.
I hope we do find something for a little vindication but we must remain realistic and leave the raving to the anti-Bush folk.

#4 State of the Union speech, January, 2004:
GW: "Ladies and Gentlemen, distinguished guests;
I have with me tonight five people who will present information more important than I might say.
They will detail Iraq's program of developing and using weapons of mass destruction.
They will detail Iraq's links with terror groups.
They will reveal how members of the ruling houses throughout the Middle East have tried to manipulate the US economy to pitch it into a recession, and how they funded and supported terrorist activities against the United States.
They will detail how members of the opposition party stonewall, ambush, ennervate, and undercut every major homeland security issue, from increasing patrols along our physical borders to denying judicial appointments to assisting in the filing of frivilous lawsuits to undermine American justice.
Finally, they will provide specific details of our programs, both our successes and our failures, to overcome these problems, and keep America - and Americans - safe."
