"The Pentagon adopted a new strategy in its search for Iraq’s weapons of mass destruction. It is called the “big impact” plan.
The plan calls for gathering and holding on to all the information now being collected about the weapons. Rather than releasing its findings piecemeal, defense officials will release a comprehensive report on the arms, perhaps six months from now. The goal of the strategy will be to quiet critics of the Bush administration who said claims of Iraq's hidden weapons stockpiles were exaggerated in order to go to war. "
[Rummyspeak] Is this is a shuck? Heavens, yes! [/Rummyspeak]
Note especially the six month time frame. The plan, apparently, is to answer all inquiries with a stall flavored with a dollop of horsepucky. “Yessiree, Bob, got documents up the ying-yang, scientists crawling out of the woodwork to 'fess up, gonna pile it all together and totally cream you non-believers, you truculent troglodytes, you nattering nabobs. Start cringing, 'cause in six months you’re really gonna catch it!”
Also note how neatly this dovetails with the “weapons program” Bushwah, the recently minted bar-lowering that pretends that the issue never was real, actual weapons, but conspiracy to intend to consider such weapons. Presumably, if a damp cocktail napkin with “Nukes!” written in Saddam’s delicate hand can be found, a “weapons program” can therby be asserted/proven. At least they didn’t have the chutzpah to suggest a release date of late November, 2004.
Think it will work? Are we this stupid?
