IRAQI WMD WATCH....Turns out those mortar shells the Danes found in southern Iraq didn't have any blister agent in them after all. What a surprise.

What is a surprise about this episode is that nobody really believed it from the start: it got only minor play and even war supporters decided to wait for conclusive results before saying anything. We've finally cried wolf one time too many.

Anyway, it doesn't matter. Everybody who's anybody knows that (a) WMD didn't matter in the first place, and (b) it's all in Syria anyway, driven across the border in a cunningly disguised fleet of ambulances. I guess Paris taxi drivers weren't available.
