One Drops And Another Follows

According to the transcript of today's White House Briefing, a "reporter" named John had this Gannon-like intro to his question:

Q You talked about sanctions against Iran if they don't comply with dismantling their nuclear energy program. Sanctions, in the past, have proven to be a joke – that they didn't work against Iraq…

Of course, according to the administration's handpicked weapons inspector, David Kay, that's untrue:

"Iraq's large-scale capability to develop, produce, and fill new chemical weapon munitions was reduced - if not entirely destroyed - during Operations Desert Storm and Desert Fox, 13 years of UN sanctions and UN inspections."

We all understand paritsanship politics, but give me a break.
