Airbrushed from history
"[W]ith Saddam's capture, we're being urged to forget that the U.S. was ever looking for anything other than the dishevelled dictator.

"David Bercuson, director of the Centre for Military and Strategic Studies at the University of Calgary, argued on CBC-TV's The National last week that Saddam's capture was 'going to help do away with the weapons of mass destruction issue.'

"This makes it sound as if the whole weapons issue was just some trifling matter that disgruntled types keep harping on, rather than being the very centre of the administration's case for war.

"It wasn't the left that turned WMD into a household phrase last winter; it was the White House."
