So the hunt for Weapons of Mass Hallucination, er, Weapons of Mass Destruction officially comes to a quiet end . There aren't any, there never were any, and there was no way to conceivably make any. Period. Which is pretty much what everyone with two brain cells to rub together already knew. How many front pages will this make south of the 49th? How many newscasts in the states will have this as their lead story? I would be willing to go out on a limb and say, oh, about zero.

The deeper question, of course, is why aren't the average Janes and Joes rioting in the streets? Their sons and daughters are being sent off to die in the sand for nothing more than a transparent and knowing lie told by a raving idiot. Is the general level of xenophobia and red-white-and-blue hysteria so all-pervasive in the U.S.A. that people will turn a blind eye to literally any atrocity as long as the flag is waved hard enough? The mind boggles ...
