WASHINGTON - The search for weapons of mass destruction in Iraq has quietly concluded without any evidence of the banned weapons that President Bush cited as justification for going to war, the White House said Wednesday.

The Iraq Survey Group, made up of some 1,200 military and intelligence specialists and support staff, spent nearly two years searching military installations, factories and laboratories whose equipment and products might be converted quickly to making weapons.

White House press secretary Scott McClellan said there no longer is an active search for weapons. "There may be a couple, a few people, that are focused on that" but that it has largely concluded, he said.

"If they have any reports of (weapons of mass destruction) obviously they'll continue to follow up on those reports," McClellan said. "A lot of their mission is focused elsewhere now."

Chief U.S. weapons hunter Charles Duelfer is to deliver his final report on the search next month. "It's not going to fundamentally alter the findings of his earlier report," McClellan said, referring to preliminary findings from last September. Duelfer reported then that Saddam Hussein not only had no weapons of mass destruction and had not made any since 1991, but that he had no capability of making any either. Bush unapologetically defended his decision to invade Iraq.

Bush has appointed a panel to investigate why the intelligence about Iraq's weapons was wrong.

No need to appoint a panel. Everybody knows that it was all a big plot to overthrow the President of the U.S. by giving him false intelligence. The plan was to give false info in hopes of sabotaging his re-election. I'm not a big conspiracy theory type person, but some things are just obvious. Heads will roll!!

But he is still looking.
However, he seems to be concentrating his search at golf courses. /ccboard/images/graemlins/confused.gif

And he just skates along and 3/4's of America think its just fine. It will be 50 years before any non American will believe the United States again. So what-what harm could that do?

So true, Nostroke, but the Bushyites don't want to ever address that little detail.
