The various intelligence agencies knew about this for some period of time, yet they apparently never told the commander-in-chief until a few days ago. Uh huh.
Bush has learned well from the departed Karl Rove in the art of spinning. This was not another case of missing weapons of mass destruction at all but an example of good work by our spies and analysts as a result of reforms he put in place after the "intelligence failure" that failed to predict 9/11. Besides, he said, "What is to say they couldn't start another nuclear program?"
As a palliative to the head games he is playing, here is a piece that is circulating on the "Internets" about plans for the George W. Bush Library, which will contain:
The Alberto Gonzales Room - Where you can't remember any of the exhibits.
The Hurricane Katrina Room - It's still under construction.
The Texas Air National Guard Room - Where you don't have to even show up.
The Walter Reed Hospital Room - Where they don't let you in.
The Guantanamo Bay Room - Where they don't let you out.
The Weapons of Mass Destruction Room - Nobody has been able to find it.
The War in Iraq Room - After you complete your first tour, they can force you to go back for your second and third and fourth and fifth tours.
The K-Street Project Gift Shop - Where you can buy an election, or, if no one cares, steal one.
The Men's Room - Where you could meet a Republican Senator (or two).
To be fair, the President has done some good things, and so the museum will have an electron microscope to help you locate them.
When asked, President Bush said that he didn't care so much about the individual exhibits as long as his museum was better than his father's.
