COMING CLEAN....David Kay isn't very happy with George Bush's continuing nonresponse to the news that Iraq never had stockpiles of WMD after all. He says it's time to quit shilly shallying:

Mr Kay, who was formerly a UN weapons inspector, called for the president to go further. "It's about confronting and coming clean with the American people. He should say we were mistaken and I am determined to find out why," he said.

....Mr Kay said that continued evasion would create public cynicism about the administration's motives, which he believes reflected a genuine fear of WMD falling into the hands of terrorists. He also said that if the administration did not confront the Iraq intelligence fiasco head-on it would undermine its credibility with its allies in future crises "for a generation".

Kay seems to be getting a little more annoyed with every passing week. Give him another couple of months and he'll be making television commercials for John Kerry.
