One More Thing Before I Go

Andrew Sullivan, on the discovery of eleven nerve-gas shells in Iraq by U.N. inspectors:

There can be no further excuses. Saddam had one absolutely last chance and he lied.

Actually, he does have one more excuse, and it's a good one, because it's very probably true. It would have been easy to forget about these eleven shells if, as is more than likely, he has thousands more squirreled away in dozens of other locations. Of course, that's the kind of excuse that will not, and should not, save him.
