Latest Bushism: 'We Found' Banned Weapons
WashPost -- KRAKOW, Poland, May 30 -- President Bush, citing two trailers that U.S. intelligence agencies have said were probably used as mobile biological weapons labs, said U.S. forces in Iraq have "found the weapons of mass destruction" that were the United States' primary justification for going to war.
What is this, a Polish joke? Two trucks with no biological agents and no evidence that they were ever used to make biological weapons are now the proof that Iraq was a threat to the United States?
The agency reported that no pathogens were found in the two trailers and added that civilian use of the heavy transports, such as water purification or pharmaceutical production, was "unlikely" because of the effort and expense required to make the equipment mobile.
