About Those Lost Weapons...

James writes that the story itself is sort of a dud: it reminds people that unlike the happiness and sunshine image that Michael Moore tried to paint Iraq in, it was a very dangerous place, full of very dangerous weapons.
On the other hand, as Lorie Byrd notes, if, God forbid, there is a Madrid-style terrorist attack on the US between now and next Tuesday, it allows Senators Kerry and Edwards to have positioned themselves perfectly to lay the blame on the administrationís incompetence.
If that's true, it's interesting bit of chess playing, thinking a couple of moves ahead. On the other hand, as typical for the left, they treat bad news for America as good news for them.
Meanwhile, Charles Johnson links to an article that say CBS was planning to run with this story this coming weekend, until the New York Times decided to beat them to the bunch--only to get themselves beaten up by NBC, CNN, and of course, the Blogosphere.
And continuing the extremely close interconnection of the New York Times and its subsidiaries with Senator Kerry, Johnson notes that Camp Kerry had ads ready to go, before the ink was dry on this past Sunday's Times.

What They're Saying
"Just this week, the McCain camp released an ad that looked astonishingly similar to a parody ad created by blogger Ed Driscoll, which combined Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton's famous '3 AM' ad with a second segment telling viewers that Mr. McCain also could be relied upon to respond to a crisis situation." --The Washington Times, September 5, 2008
