WMDs found in Iraq

Senator Rick Santorum and Representative Pete Hoekstra held a news conference today, where they announced a newly-declassified report that summarizes our discovery of ~500 warheads full of chemical weapons in Iraq since the 2003 invasion.

That's right, kiddies, you won't have to hear "no weapons of mass destruction were found in Iraq" for very much longer.

What a bad week for the Democrats this is.

The whining is that these were pre-1991 weapons and weren't usable, and it appears to have a bit of traction with the MSM. Although how many microseconds it would take to make them usable, or to retrieve the chemical weapons housed inside them, is conveniently ignored.

Of course that's BS, but I half-expect the claim to change to there were "no new WMDs" or "no immediately useful" in Iraq.

It remains to be seen if the tide will turn with the general pop's perception in the war of words of this. SOP is that when the battle is lost, the MSM stops talking about it and says it's old news.
