A Quick Reminder: WMDs = Bad

The discovery of one shell with sarin gas in Iraq has some people on the right getting excited. (Lots of links here, and see here too.) While this minor discovery may help Bush a little, it strikes me as putting politics over security. If there really are some WMD remnants, as Republicans seem to be hoping, that suggests there might have been more that the evildoers made off with. If there aren't any such remnants, then Bush is embarrassed by being wrong about the rationale for war, but at least we don't get killed by the deadly weapons. That's why I find it rather distasteful to be cheering the discovery of this material.

Oliver Willis has a good post on this.
