News Limited's Greg Sheridan: WMD doubts are ludicrous: "THE US has material in its possession in Iraq which, if it checks out, will be conclusive evidence of Saddam Hussein's weapons of mass destruction programs. The evidence that Hussein had WMD programs is so overwhelming, he can barely understand how it is doubted."

Frightful propaganda from Sheridan. Not to mention the little phrase "if it checks out", he has performed a switch (or in fact retailed the official line) that we are looking for programs. Readers will need to remind themselves that the war was sold on the basis of weapons, not programs. That is one that Bush/Blair/Howard/Murdoch would like to see in the Memory Hole, no doubt.
