No WMD Stockpiles, Says Chief Inspector

NYT has this story based on Dr. Kay's interview with Reuters on his last day as head of the US efforts to find WMD in Iraq. (Kay stepped down because resources were being diverted from his team's efforts to find WMD evidence to counter-insurgency efforts.) According to Kay, Iraq may have had illicit weapons after the Gulf War, but "got rid of them" sometime before the war.

Of course, the White House is still claiming that Iraq possessed stockpiles of WMD. At some point they are going to have to admit that Iraq did not have WMD, although I guess Bush's use of the phrase "WMD related activities" is a tacit acknowledgement that he lied through his FUCKING teeth, as did Powell, as did Cheney, as did Rumsfeld, as did Rice.. Regime change begins at home people.
