Why so quiet?

The Washington Post tells us that the Search for Banned Arms In Iraq Ended Last Month. Somehow Bush hasn't made a big deal out of that.

A while back I pored over the pre-war Bush State of the Union address, and the case for taking down Iraq in that is almost totally based on WMD, with a minute sop here and there to humanitarian impulses. But I'm sure you knew that.

Bush has expressed disappointment that no weapons or weapons programs were found, but the White House has been reluctant to call off the hunt, holding out the possibility that weapons were moved out of Iraq before the war or are well hidden somewhere inside the country. But the intelligence official said that possibility is very small.

I doubt we'll hear much about WMD from Bush, and a supine press corps won't ask him about it.

What a total disaster.
