The Snipe Hunt in Iraq Continues

Scott Ritter, a former United Nations weapons inspector in Iraq, writes about the baffling methodology that has been/is being used to find the infamous WMD presence President Bush said was the most pressing reason for launching his go-it-alone war to liberate the suffering people of Iraq: “Some 1,500 American investigators are scouring the Iraqi countryside for evidence of weapons of mass destruction that has so far eluded them…”.

After reading Ritter’s OpEd piece in the New York Times we are left to wonder -- what was/is really going on with the so-called search for WMDs?

Regarding such brutal futility, as appears to be in the air in Iraq, perhaps Marvin Gaye put it best in his classic 1971 anti-war song: “What’s Going On?”
