Finally, Good News From Iraq

The liberal Hemiblogosphere often is criticized for neglecting to mention "all the good news" coming from Iraq.  I intend to rectify that here, and atone for my past omissions.  Original source here.
Q: But, still, those countries who didn't support the Iraqi Freedom operation use the same argument, weapons of mass destruction haven't been found. So what argument will you use now to justify this war?

THE PRESIDENT: We found the weapons of mass destruction. We found biological laboratories. You remember when Colin Powell stood up in front of the world, and he said, Iraq has got laboratories, mobile labs to build biological weapons. They're illegal. They're against the United Nations resolutions, and we've so far discovered two. And we'll find more weapons as time goes on. But for those who say we haven't found the banned manufacturing devices or banned weapons, they're wrong, we found them. [emphasis added]
Ooops.  Check the date.  May 29, 2003.  I guess that's not exactly news, then.

Now, the apology.  I did not dig this up.  Another blogger did, who deserves a link back, but I closed the tab and now can't remember who it was.
