'Imminent' Is in the Eye of the Beholder

Maru does a fantastic summary of today's news that the white house is claiming "we never said the wmds were an imminent threat!"

On January 26, 2003, CNN asked White House
communications director Dan Bartlett "is he
(Saddam) an imminent threat to US interests,
either in that part of the world or to Americans
right here at home?"

"Well, of course he is," Bartlett replied.

On May 7, 2003, a reporter asked then WH
spokes-tool Ari 'the liar' Fleischer: "We went
to war, didn't we, to find these - because
we said that these weapons were a direct
and imminent threat to the United States?
Isn't that true?"

"Absolutely," he replied.

Well, there you are.
