In the meantime AP is reporting that Stephen Cambone, the Under Secretary for Intelligence (both Nous and information gathering!), has reported on the first evidence of WMD, the mobile bioweapons lab that has been found. Cambone said in part this:
"While some of the equipment on the trailer could have been used for purposes other than biological weapons agent production, U.S. and U.K. technical experts have concluded that the unit does not appear to perform any function beyond what the defector said it was for, which is the production of biological agents." Read the whole thing. Note also in the story that General Wallace is saying that there is plenty of documentary evidence suggesting that Iraq had an active program for WMD. I can feel Hersh’s heart sinking. Can a reporter by fired because he is always wrong? Or, does he have tenure?
