Get With It, Fred

Fred Thompson, campaigning in Iowa, says that Saddam Hussein clearly had WMD’s.

“We can’t forget the fact that although at a particular point in time we never found any WMD down there, he clearly had had WMD,” Thompson said. “He clearly had had the beginnings of a nuclear program, and in my estimation his intent never did change.”

Yeah, but the problem with that is that even President Bush abandoned that line long ago and found a lot of other lame excuses for this war.

Perhaps in his acting career, Mr. Thompson got used to having a stand-in. This time he’s standing in for Dick Cheney.
