No WMD? Not so fast, Sean Penn...

At the Oscars in 2004, Sean Penn inserted a little comment into his Best Actor acceptance speech about there being no WMD in Iraq. This was one of thousands of references I have heard over and over - from callers on talk radio, leftist guests on the cable news shows, and mainstream news broadcasts - about there being no WMD in Iraq. "Funny," I always thought, "If there were never any WMD in Iraq, then how did Saddam gas 5,000 Kurds in 1988? How come Clinton and the Democrats said that Saddam had them back in 1998?"

Today, it seems as though the first big WMD find in Iraq has been confirmed. The not so surprising part is that this news might be new to us, but the information is rather old. Apparently, records of WMD finds have been kept since our invasion in 2003, but some of the classified documents are just now being released. Rather than reinvent the wheel, I will direct you to a blogger who has a lot more time on her hands to write about this big news than I do: Michelle Malkin.

Good Day to You, Sir
