Our ever-changing stories 

Proconsul Bremer ratchets down the test for success in the WMD hunt here:

"[CIA adviser] David Kay has now got about 1,200 people in country working for him on weapons of mass destruction. He's making progress. . . . I'm confident we will find evidence of the biological and chemical programs."

It used to be weapons... Then it was weapons programs... Now it's evidence of weapons programs.... And—please note—"biological and chemical." Nothing nuclear.

And I like the Freudian-slippy wording of "working for him on weapons of mass destruction"—not working on finding them, just "working on them." No crude forgeries this time, eh?
