Even Kay is out. Anyway, there are many things one could say about this but I'd just like to say that this is yet another indictment of our media.

Let's grant everyone the benefit of the doubt for a moment. Let's suppose the Bush administration truly believed their own rhetoric. Let's suppose they were operating on good intelligence and, though they were a bit selective in their reading, they were true believers. Fine.

But, at the time, there were also plenty of reasonable people running around saying that this whole WMD stuff was nonsense. Remember how they were treated by our media? They were treated like escapees from an insane asylum who needed to up their Thorazine dose. Remember how radical and controversial it was to even suggest such a thing?

How embarassing for them all, if they could feel such emotions.
