Letters from readers: “Why so sad?
The two-year search for weapons of mass destruction in Iraq has ended and no weapons were found. President Bush says he is disappointed. Why?
Isn’t that good news? After all, it shows it’s not always necessary to go to war to disarm a tyrant. Sanctions and inspections, previously mocked as ineffective, obviously worked.
The failure to find anything means that the president and his men were spectacularly wrong about a key reason we are now immersed in a war that is costing a lot more American lives and dollars than anyone anticipated.
But even now the president says he has no regrets and would do it all over again.
