But, but, but

So Bush admits today that we haven't found any WMDs in Iraq (wonder if that means Cheney will change his standard lines). But don't worry your pretty lil' heads True Believershe still says we made the right choice in starting the war:

"Although we have not found stockpiles of weapons of mass destruction, we were right to go into Iraq," Bush said after inspecting a display of nuclear weapons parts and equipment, including assembled gas centrifuges for uranium enrichment, from Libya. . . .

"We removed a declared enemy of America who had the capability of producing weapons of mass murder and could have passed that capability to terrorists bent on acquiring them. In the world after September 11th, that was a risk we could not afford to take," Bush said.

Ooohh, I see. So he still coulda made WMDs if he wanted too, right? Since we found all those stockpiles of materials and schematics, and chemical labs, and - - wait, what? We didn't? We didn't even find evidence of his capabilities? And those other reports said that Iraq refused to help Al-Q in the past - what about that?

Golly gee, Mr. President, why don't I just give you the benefit of the doubt a little longer. Sounds like a sound defense to me.
