About Those WMDs....

Here's hoping that all of you out there enjoyed a very merry Christmas and further hopes that your New Year's celebration will be equally entertaining. And now, back to our regualr posting...

Thanks to Captain Ed Morrissey, it appears that a major hole has just been poked in the Democratic/MSM argument that Bush Lied about WMDs in Iraq.

According to the London Times, a Dutch businessman has just been sentenced to fifteen eyars in prison for supplying those non-existent WMDs to Saddam Hussein! In fact, he was specifically sentenced for supplying the WMDs used agains the Kurds in 1991. The same WMDs that the treaty that ended the First Gulf War specifically called on Saddam to either give up or present proof of destruction. Proof that Saddam never provided, which was one of the many valid reasons why George W. Bush finally deposed him.

Hmmm, haven't noticed much play on that story by our own so-called 'mainstream' purveyors of propaganda (ie the New York Times, CNN, CBS, ABC, NBC, et al....) But of course, if the MSM actually took note of htis story, as Captain Ed so correctly notes, that would mean they might actually have to acknowledge that their trademarked Bush Lied story does not now and did not then hold any water whatsoever. And we all know how much the MSM hates to admit their many mistakes.

Hat tip to Captain's Quarters.
