A Flip-Flop I Can Agree With « GWOT »

"It appears, as they peel away the weapons of mass destruction issue - and we may yet find them," [Kerry] told host Chris Matthews. "Look, I want to make it clear. Who knows if a month from now, three months from now, you find some weapons? You may."

What does he know, that we don't? Think he's just hedging his bet.

Oh, I'm sure he doesn't know anything.

But many people have said for months that the lack of success in searching for actual examples of WMD means "Bush Lied!", despite the fact that many other people (me included) have said that there are at least three ways that President Bush was 100% correct that we still wouldn't find WMD:
1) Saddam destroyed it at the last minute
2) Saddam moved it into Syria
3) Saddam hid it too well

Now that the Democrat presidential candidate says we might still find it, it lends support to those of us counseling patience, and undermines those who use that issue to attack President Bush and his policies.

So I appreciate Kerry's honesty on this issue, even if it comes from a weasely, self-serving motivation.
