WMD UPDATE....We found some old mortar shells full of blister gas in southern Iraq on Friday. WMD at last! War supporters must finally feel vindicated, right?

Not quite:

  • Instapundit: "It appears to be genuine, but it's hardly news: Saddam gassed people, after all, so we know he had WMD."

  • Andrew Sullivan: "Of course, we've had stories like this one before and they haven't panned out."

  • The Corner: "Just realized this story has not been mentioned in The Corner yet."

  • Eugene Volokh: "I'll believe it when more thorough tests are done -- in the past, supposed discoveries of chemical weapons haven't panned out."

That's a remarkably restrained reaction, no? Perhaps they've finally learned their lesson.
