WMDs

A good NY Post article, via DGCI:

The report condemns the CIA for overstating the intelligence it did have on Iraq's weaponry. But it doesn't claim that the CIA actively discarded or disregarded contravening evidence. There was almost no evidence that Saddam did not possess weapons of mass destruction until after the war was won and we began looking for them.

I know I've become a linker lately; the truth is that I don't have time for anything else. In fact, I should be grading papers right now instead of reading the NY Post. (I also don't have anything new to say that hasn't already been said elsewhere, but that's a different issue altogether.) My friend here, known for throwing hilarious fake tantrums, grumbled at me yesterday because I never come knit or sew with her anymore; I have a half-made quilt that's been sitting there for over six weeks. She's right; I don't do much of anything anymore except work, teach, grade, and try to get some sleep while other people's dogs are keeping me up all night. Only two and a half more weeks of this school term though, and then I get a break until October.

LIAR

Joseph Wilson is a liar. I wish the President would be more pro-active in pointing out stuff like this.

LIAR

Michael Moore is a liar. But you knew that already, didn't you? Lileks wants to make sure you don't forget that Moore lies off-screen too.

Mmmm. Screed.

SNAFU

You should read all of Iraq Now today. Just keep scrolling. I especially liked the reference to the Offspring. And my husband said that no one he knows in the military actually uses the word "snafu", despite its frequency in movies.

LINKS

I have some papers to grade, so here are some links in the meantime:

Iraq Now points out the win-win nature of the 12 chemical shells the Poles found.

The sister of one of the pilots killed at the Pentagon crash has some words for the American public regarding the 9/11 commission.

And watch Saddam play a rousing game of Paper Rock Scissors (via Smash).

REIGN

I have seen discussions of whether President Bush -- reputation for being a complete idiot -- meant to say "reign" or "ring" in his note. I think he said it exactly right.

TESTIFY

Good lord, what a nightmare.

MORE TO GROK:

Apologies for being vague: the reason I think it's a nightmare is because the US might have to testify on behalf of that monster. Not because I'm hoodwinked.

CHINA

One Hand Clapping has a moving entry on the current events in China and the power of one man. I've said it before: would that I had an ounce of his conviction.

DEUCE

Wow. Yesterday's LGF (2 July) was a doozy. I laughed, I gasped, I ohmygoded. If you didn't see it all, go back. And follow links. And adopt the phrase "the deuce" into your vocabulary.

Carla's right: this cartoon brings a little smile to my face. So does this story.
