Comments: SARIN

I agree. The President's job is to keep the country as informed as possible in time of war. Talking to the people of the country is one of his jobs. Whether or not he uses the correct and fancy words - he needs to talk. This has always bothered me about Mr. Bush. It seems as if he is of the opinion - I've already said this, I shouldn't have to repeat myself. He's very wrong in that regard.

If I recall correctly there were both sarin and mustard agents.

Question: Do you still have a copy of that report I e-mailed you and the pics about the exposure to a single half-century old mustard artillery round that I sent you waaaaaay back in the day?

Yes, Kalroy, it was both sarin and mustard agents. The only talk I heard was "Yeah, but they were old, some being pre-Gulf War I." It still doesn't matter; Saddam said he got rid of everything, and obviously he didn't. I also think Bush should address the issue. Anytime there's a revelation such as this, it gets swept under the carpet, and then half of the US doesn't learn the truth.

A desperate political stunt by "Dead Fetus in My Bed" Santorum. Have some more koolaid

Since you posted the same comment on two posts, I'll post the same response...

Question -- how is this statement, taken from your link, different from the quotes I provided?

"We were able to determine that [the missile] is, in fact, degraded and ... is consistent with what we would expect from finding a munition that was dated back to pre-Gulf War," an intelligence official told NBC. "However, even in the degraded state, our assessment is that they could pose an up-to-lethal hazard if used in attacks against coalition forces."

Your link just said the exact same thing my post said...

This is just more of the wanting to have it both ways that the anti-Bush crowd seems to be so fond of.

It should be quite plain that there's a movement in this country that would find fault with this administration if they figured out a way to run automobiles on water, found a cure for cancer, and developed better head protection for NHL players. While I do agree that Bush needs to communicate more effectively than he does at times on a number of different issues, I can understand the hesitancy to throw raw meat to his detractors.

I find it interesting that Gore's movie backed by questionable scientific research gets "rave" reviews and attention while Mr. Bush's claims go mostly unnoticed. Guess that's just the way things are going to be until we get some balance out there...or until the media chooses to go back to reporting news in stead of spinning it.

See you on the high ground.
