We Won Or We Think We Did

The teevee tells me it's the official end of the Iraq war, except for the 50,000 or so we seem to leave behind everywhere we go.

Not really the end, of course, but I guess we can pretend for a bit. Here's a reminder of how we went there in the first place, from Richard Cohen.

The evidence he presented to the United Nations -- some of it circumstantial, some of it absolutely bone-chilling in its detail -- had to prove to anyone that Iraq not only hasn't accounted for its weapons of mass destruction but without a doubt still retains them. Only a fool -- or possibly a Frenchman -- could conclude otherwise.

And Natalie can speak for the fools and Frenchmen among us.
