Two Things That Stink And I'm Embarrassed To Live Near

1. People who believe Saddam had WMDs.
2. FOX News

TV News Failing To Get Across WMD Story
Media analysts are saying that they are baffled by a new poll showing that half the U.S. population continues to believe that Saddam Hussein's government possessed weapons of mass destruction at the time of the U.S.-led invasion in 2003. Media critic Michael Massing, who was one of the first to condemn the New York Times and the Washington Post for their coverage of the lead-up to the invasion, told the Associated Press Sunday that he was "flabbergasted" by the poll's results. "This finding just has to cause despair among those of us who hope for an informed public able to draw reasonable conclusions based on evidence," Massing said. The wire service blamed talk radio, "die-hard bloggers," and what it called "a growing need for people, in their own minds to justify the war in Iraq." Opinion analyst Steven Kull told A.P. that in such circumstances people sometimes come to conclusions "independent of reality." In its report, A.P. pointed out that as recently as July 21, Fox News was suggesting, "with no evidence," that Saddam's illusory WMDs may have had a different destination, as it headlined, "ARE Saddam Hussein's WMDS NOW IN HEZBOLLAH'S HANDS?"

You deny, then, the published reports from site inspectors of hundreds of CW shells discovered, including Sarin gas?

You deny then, the documented surveillance of trucks from Iraq into Syria as the war commenced?

Apparently, you are in serious denial.

I deny the WMDs that were supposed to be used to attack American. The ones the war was sold on.

To attack America, I meant.

That why U.S. inspectors called off their search for WMD's on January of 2005. No banned Iraqi weapons were found after Saddam was removed. NONE. That sir, is a fact, that you are in denial of.

Saddam did not have any WMD stockpiles and had not started any program to produce them. Iraq's WMD program was stopped in 1991 after the Persian Gulf War.

Charles Duelfer's report to the sentate in October of 2004. Look it up.
