One basic purpose of the Democrats’ “missing WMD” attacks is to sow doubt about the Administration’s credibility so as to prevent it from taking military action in the future. This Washington Post/ABC News poll suggests that so far, most Americans are failing to get the point. By a 56% to 38% margin, respondents support “the United States taking military action against Iran to prevent it from developing nuclear weapons.”
This is quite striking, especially given the wording of the question: it doesn’t imply anything about Iran’s possession or imminent possession of nuclear weapons, but simply asks whether we should take military action to prevent them from developing such weapons.
In the same poll, 63% of respondents said that the Iraq war is justified whether or not weapons of mass destruction are found; only 23% said the war would be justified only if such weapons are found.
