Iran has accused the United States of double standards in fighting terrorism by refusing to hand over People's Mujahideen Iranian rebels disarmed by U.S. forces in Iraq.
While branded as terrorists by the State Department, analysts say Pentagon hawks are mulling whether to use the group against Iran.
Uh. And this is from reuters??? Wtf?????
In this Washington Post article on the inability of the administration to find the WMDs and their comments on that, there is the paragraph:
The U.S. invasion force moved so quickly into Iraq, Defense Secretary Donald H. Rumsfeld said Tuesday in response to questions at the Council on Foreign Relations in New York, that the Iraqis "didn't have time to . . . use chemical weapons. . . . They may have had time to destroy them, and I don't know the answer."
Uhm. How do you have time to destroy something so completely, you remove all traces of its existance (and that takes effort with chemical weapons), but not simply, well, fire them off at your enemy?
Why does anyone swallow this?
