Pincus in Spider-Hole of Denial 

I'm not sure I understand the point of this news story. Hasn't Walter Pincus been informed that Saddam has been captured from a terror-hole? Was he not listening when our president said, "So what's the difference? The possibility that he could acquire weapons. If he were to acquire weapons, he would be the danger"? Doesn't Mr. Pincus understand that because our president receives his national security intelligence via divine revelation (which by its nature obviates temporal categories like "past," "present" and "future") the distinction between "present fact" and "future possibility" is moot?

Plus, didn't all of this happen, like, a long time ago? I can hardly remember what any of this stuff was about--the uranium intelligence claims, all the other public claims about WMD, the Valerie Plame smear; not to mention the redacted stuff on Saudi Arabia in the 9/11 report; not to mention either almost anything Dick Cheney has said, done, known about, or been involved with, like ever...Can't we just have a nice Christmas and then move on with the business of building a safer, better tomorrow?
