Way too little, way too late.

BAGHDAD (Reuters) - A small amount of the nerve agent sarin has been found in a shell that exploded in Iraq, the U.S. army says -- the first announcement of the discovery of any of the weapons on which Washington made its case for war.

The questions raised are three:

1.) Will the administration use this to justify the invasion and subsequently revise their stump speeches to include the news as part of the Bush "successes?"

(Answer: yes.)

2.) Will American citizens be convinced?

(Answer: yes--those who didn't care if we found them in the first place, and no--everyone else.)

3.) Will the tiny quantity found provoke conspiracy theorists to assert that the US planted to Sarin?

(Anwswer: yes.)
