in Stupid People

US Report states that there is no evidence supporting any theory that Saddam Hussien possesed WMDs.

from the article:

“Contradicting the main argument for a war that has cost more than 1,000 American lives, the top U.S. arms inspector said Wednesday he found no evidence that Iraq (news – web sites) produced weapons of mass destruction after 1991. He also concluded that Saddam Hussein (news – web sites)’s ability to develop such weapons had dimmed — not grown — during a dozen years of sanctions before last year’s U.S.-led invasion.”I like the fact that no one can account for the weapons that Saddam claimed to have had in 1991.  One associate of mine thinks that they must have been smuggled out of the country. My thought: We based our estimates of what weapons were in his possesion based off of Saddam’s own statements. Don’t you think that maybe he was lying?

    A co-worker of mine suggested that Saddam actually BELEIVED he had those weapons but that his advisors lied to him about having them to preserve their own necks smile

    Another entirely reasonable explanation.

    Saddam: “Amir! Where are my 52 shells tipped with mutard gas?”

    Amir: “They are right here, beloved leader! See the canisters? They clearly say “mustard”!”

    Saddam: “They say ‘French’s Old Style Mustard’! What buffonery is this?”

    Amir: “No, no sir. It is a clever ruse to trick the stupid agents of the Great Satan! They will never suspect it!”

    Saddam: “Very good!”

    I hate to sound like a hippy..

    but i’d really like to see one of those “that has cost 1000 american lives” reports include the number of Iraqis we’ve killed, as well.
