Taking potshots

Publisher York’s usually cogent editorials lost a little of their luster when he joined the ranks of the Bush knee-jerk detractors in postulating that there were never any weapons of mass destruction in Iraq, with the implication that there are none there now. Almost every day, terrorists in Iraq set off explosions. Explosions require explosives. Prior to their use, such explosives must be stored somewhere. There is no way to know if existing caches of explosives in Iraq also include WMDs. Consequently, we do not know if some are there now. I realize that this sort of thinking is rather rare among American journalists, especially in an election year. Nevertheless, it is worth cultivating. It’s called logic.
