Our ever-changing stories on WMD

More rosebushes?

WASHINGTON (AP) - U.S. officials in Iraq have solid evidence of weapons of mass destruction programs and details probably will be released soon, two leading Senate Republicans said Thursday, after returning from Iraq.

But Democrats on the same trip said the evidence wasn't definitive. They said the Republicans were trying to shift the focus from proving that Saddam Hussein had weapons to proving he was developing them.

``That was not the basis on which the nation went to war,'' said Sen. Jay Rockefeller of West Virginia, top Democrat on the Senate Intelligence Committee.

Gosh, can't these guys get their stories straight? Can't they just plant the weapons and have done with it? The wait is getting really tiresome.
