Spin city

Hang on, I thought these didn't exist.

Obviously a single shell does not a WMD stockpile make, but it is certainly an interesting development.

It will be interesting to see what the spin on this is by many commentators. My guesses:

* It's a plant by the US. I guess finding WMD and picking up Osama from his Kurdish captors in the same week before the election would have been too obvious. Best to spread them out a bit.

* They weren't Iraqi weapons - they were smuggled from Iran or Syria.

* Even if there were WMD, we never said they didn't exist, we just said that they weren't the reason for the invasion.

* It will be ignored. Front page news for a day, then no follow up. It worked for the Nick Berh execution, it will work for this as well.

In the mainstream media, my money is on option 4. The moonbats at Indymedia etc will try a combination of all of them.
