David Kay's interim report on whether Saddam Hussein had a serious program to build weapons of mass destruction—an investigation that Kay and 1,500 agents from the Pentagon's Iraq Survey Group have been conducting for three months now—is a shockingly lame piece of work.
I'm doubtful that my letter will be published. Lately it seems that the Op-Ed page has been increasingly one-sided. They even stopped printing Molly Ivins's columns. Now it's mostly stuffy Republican syndicated columnists shilling for the whitehouse and loony right-wingers from the backwoods of Boxford or Windham writing letters to the editor -- himself a tool in the Washington spin-machine. Ah well.
