    Powerline make this obvious lie.

    “…And John Kerry wants to base his campaign on the claim that this constitutes “incompetence” on the part of the U.S. Army?”

    Kerry wants to base his campaign on claiming the US Army is incompetent??? Do they believe that? This signals to me that Powerline’s article is simple Rovian hack-analysis. Can you imagine if the New York Times article closed with that line? How upset the rightwing would be about the biased, lying, liberal media?

    Actually what’s more interesting than the hackdom Powerline yadda-yadda is what President Bush’s Iraqi arms inspector David Kay had to say about the issue:

    “…Well, at least with regard to this one bunker and the film shows one seal, one bunker, one group of soldiers going through and there were others there that were sealed, with this one, I think it is game, set and match.

    There was HMX, RDX in there. The seal was broken and quite frankly to me the most frightening thing is not only is the seal broken and the lock broken but the soldiers left after opening it up. I mean to rephrase the so-called (UNINTELLIGIBLE) rule if you open an arms bunker, you own it. You have to provide security.”

    Even as a Kerry supporter, I can’t get worked up about this issue. But it doesn’t look good for Bush, IMHO, if this is the story that dominates the weekend. And it’s David Kay’s word against the Republican hacks?
