Iraq’s WMD Finally Found In New York City; Will Bush Invade the Upper East Side?

Yup.  They’ve been in a storage closet at the United Nations since 1996.

Flashback to March 2003:

MR. STEPHANOPOULOS: Finally, weapons of mass destruction. Key goal of the military campaign is finding those weapons of mass destruction. None have been found yet. There was a raid on the Answar Al-Islam Camp up in the north last night. A lot of people expected to find ricin there. None was found. How big of a problem is that? And is it curious to you that given how much control U.S. and coalition forces now have in the country, they haven’t found any weapons of mass destruction?

SEC. RUMSFELD: Not at all. If you think — let me take that, both pieces — the area in the south and the west and the north that coalition forces control is substantial. It happens not to be the area where weapons of mass destruction were dispersed. We know where they are. They’re in the area around Tikrit and Baghdad and east, west, south and north somewhat.

Ironically, Colin Powell was at the U.N. telling the world that that Iraq had WMDs.  Little did Powell know that the weapons would be found by a couple of janitors, four and a half years later, a few hundred yards from the place that Powell spoke.
