The New York Times’ tweet Tuesday night claiming that U.S. troops found thousands of chemical weapons during the Iraq War already has conservatives and liberals re-fighting that conflict on Twitter.

Don’t be fooled into thinking that the New York Times is contributing in any way to the rehabilitation of President Bush’s legacy, though. The Times’ report is on soldiers who were injured by chemical weapons — thousands of them — left behind since the early ’90s.

Speaking of:

Unfunny and unhelpful as usual, Mr. Fugelsang.

The presence of even these weapons wasn’t a secret to many of those who were there in Iraq.

True.
