I hope they were lying

That is the best scenario to the problem of not finding WMD. The alternatives are that there were in fact all of these WMDs, but they have now been scattered around the middle east; or that U.S. intelligence is so bad, we were way off the mark on what Saddam had. It is pretty sad when the best thing you can hope for is that your government is lying to you.

So I guess I won't worry that the press, the American people, and the rest of the elected officials are willing to accept the best-case-scenario lying and just stick my head in sand with the rest of them.

But even if the weapons are never found, it may be smart politics to let the subject drop. "Our constituents like a victory, and at this point it's a victory," said Sen. Lincoln D. Chafee (R-R.I.). "In the beginning, our constituents were saying, 'They better find weapons of mass destruction.' With it over so quickly, we are not hearing that refrain."
No Weapons, No Problem for Bush
