WMD lies easier to discover than WMD +

A new study from the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace comes out today, arguing that the Bush administration systematically mislead everybody about the threat of Iraq's WMD program. Here's coverage from The Guardian, from the Washington Post, and from Reuters.

The report will be released and discussed at a press conference at 12:30 EST. You can listen here. As I write this, the report hasn't been posted, but I'm sure it will be availble on the Publications page, or the main page of the site shortly.

So Bush misled us about WMD. Well, at least he didn't lie about having oral sex with an intern. Now that would be something you could impeach somebody over.

Update: The site seems to be getting heavy traffic, but if you can get through, you can read the full report here.
