IT'S OFFICIAL: NO WMDs. Now that the election season safely over. After UN and US inspectors unqualifiedly declared it months ago. After strong assertions to the contrary were made by our President to both Congress and the citizens. After presuring the UN into a justification for attack on Iraq based primarily on the assumption of WMDs. Long after U.S. Secretary of State Colin Powell, having made the Bush Administration's case to the UN Security Council, repented of his assertions--along with any connections between Saddam Hussein and 9/11/01. After billions of dollars of taxpayers money have been wasted on ammunitions and over 1,000 American lives and countless thousands of Iraqi lives have been lost in the US-led attack based on the assertion of WMDs. Now the Bush Administration makes it official: "Oops! We were wrong. There were no weapons of mass destruction in Iraq."

The release of this information came without any apology or regrets. The President still thinks he did--and continues to do--the right thing regarding Iraq.

How do you react or respond to this information?
