Today's Washington Post talks about Rumsfeld's recent trip to Iraq and Afghanistan, and specifically his avoidance of questions about the search for WMD. When asked about his half hour meeting with David Kay (the guy who is looking for the weapons):
How can you have a half hour meeting with the guy whose only job is finding weapons and not talk about whether he has found any weapons? This is a dramatic change in rhetoric from the leaks about a major unveiling in mid-September.
Is it possible that the hype they've created about the "September Surprise" is nothing but a ruse to quell the media firestorm about the lack of weapons in Iraq? Keep the wolves at bay by leaking promises, hoping that when the time comes, fewer people will care. Abruptly halt the momentum.
