Looks as if these folks need to get their stories straight. (Thanks to CalPundit for the pointer.)
Since the humanitarian case for deposing Saddam Hussein was reasonably strong, why the continued insistence on weapons of mass destruction in the face of what seems to be accumulating negative evidence?
The quote from the Tory spokesman makes me wonder: If a Democrat were in office and had invaded Iraq — a move, let’s recall, that Bill Clinton supported when Bush made it — would the Republicans be as noisily anti-war as the Tories in Britain are? Many Americans probably aren’t aware of it, but the Telegraph isn’t some sort of left-wing rag; it’s basically a Tory Party organ, in a journalistic system in which newspapers are expected to have partisan identities and to reflect those positions in their news columns as well as in their “leaders” (editorials).
