Speaking to two critical players in the search for Iraq WMD and the mystery of the Iraq Survey Group’s inability to find the weapons and systems in 2003-2004. The facts on the ground do not support the political rhetoric that there was no WMD. The facts on the ground support that Saddam Hussein and his ministers and their allies in more than one European state conspired to deny and deceive the UN, the U.S., and the post-war search teams. The facts on the ground support that there is a library of evidence to be identified, translated, and explained by ops, scholars, pols, and historians. Case in point this day is Nasariyah, summer 2003, where an American agent, with Arabic, met and developed Iraqi sources who led him to most-suspect sites. The sites are underground caves, then flooded, having thick concrete walls. The Iraqis said that the sites had been built and sealed over during six months in the middle of 2002. This anecdote suits exactly the untold story. This suits anyone who understands that the last laugh will be for those who find the biologicals, the chemicals, and the nuclear weapons plans that remain the threat until it is destroyed.

It won’t take long for conservatives to scratch this presidential wannabe off their 2008 scorecard.
The American Christmas, like the songs that celebrate it, makes room for everybody under the rainbow. Is that why so many people seem to be hostile to it?
Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
