White House press secretary Scott McClellan said there no longer is an active search for weapons. "There may be a couple, a few people, that are focused on that" but that it has largely concluded, he said.
"If they have any reports of (weapons of mass destruction) obviously they'll continue to follow up on those reports," McClellan said. "A lot of their mission is focused elsewhere now."
But the warmongers need not despair. As Bush's evangelical supporters might point out, God never closes a door without opening a window. And that window just happens to be facing Syria.
