So Wrong, for So Long

Emily Udell

Once again, folks, repeat: No WMDs in Iraq. The Boston Globe reports that the search for chemical and biological weapons in Iraq has "quietly concluded." House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi released a written statement that said:Now that the search is finished, President Bush needs to explain to the American people why he was so wrong, for so long, about the reasons for war. A New York Times article, just released, reports: "Some administration officials have suggested that some arms might have been moved out of Iraq, perhaps to Syria." White House spokesman Scott McClellan apparently ruled this out, but it sounds like some officials want to keep their options open…. Read the press briefing with McClellan, and watch him dodge questions by resorting to platitudes like: "The President knows that by advancing freedom in a dangerous region, we are making the world a safer place."

Help kick off the new era of In These Times! Without a media that brings people together and creates a written record of the struggles of workers, their voices will be fragmented and forgotten.

The mission of In These Times is to be that written record, and to guide and grow those movements.

We have a lot of work ahead of us, and that work starts today. Early support is the most valuable support, and that’s why we’re asking you to pitch in now. If you are excited for this new era of In These Times, please make a donation today.
