US gives up search for Iraq WMD

So can we just say we are sorry and go home now? I bet we could spend less by just sending checks to help the Iraqi's rebuild on their own, then by keeping the largest military presence there in the history of the conflict. Not to mention how much our presence in the Middle East just radicalizes new generations of Islamic youth. Oh, wait I forgot about the OIL!

"We have believed that there weren't any weapons since around May or June 2003. First came David Kay in September 2003 [who said] that he hadn't found any weapons and that was a big sensation - but he thought that there were programmes still," he told the BBC.

"But then came Duelfer last November [who] said that he hadn't seen any programmes, but maybe Saddam would have intended to restart the programme, and there is no evidence of that.

Mr Blix said he assumed it would be natural for the United States to now report their finding to the UN Security Council "because the US took the inspections out of the hands of the UN to undertake it themselves".
