What a difference a day makes...
AP: U.N. Nuclear Agency Will Give Iraq Good Grades in Report to Security Council, Spokesman Says (via Interesting Times)
WaPo: Bush Evidence of Iraq 'Appetite' for Nuclear Weapons in Doubt (via Daily Kos)
CNN: White House weighs extending inspections
...not that I put a lot of stock in the latter report, mind you. My distinct impression is that Bush long ago made up his mind that he wants nothing short of an invasion (let's face it, using "military force" could mean just bombing any Iraqi WMD sites we know of, and that's a step that seems to offer not only some good effect but also offers some chance of gaining support, but the hawks don't seem to offer limited strikes as an option), that he's going to go ahead with it regardless of what anyone else thinks, and that Bush's petulance at the way things aren't going according to his script is obvious to both an increasingly skeptical American public and allies smarting under the daily dish of dissing from Administration officials. I don't think this combination spells a successful policy or a benefit to the national interests.
