    'whats the difference' has been used by a variety of people, including our president when asked about our intelligence being wrong about WMD's in Iraq.

    you keep coming back to that...WMD thing - wow. :)

    I haven't heard you chastize John Kerry - or others about not finding the actual weapons; it was the world's consensous Saddam possessed mass quantities.

    Excerpt from "Alice's Adventure in Wonderland"....as I read it, I couldn't help but see a strong parallel to the present situation!

    There's more evidence to come yet, please your Majesty,' said the White Rabbit, jumping up in a great hurry; `this paper has just been picked up.'
    `What's in it?' said the Queen.
    `I haven't opened it yet, said the White Rabbit, `but it seems to be a letter, written by the prisoner to--to somebody.'
    `It must have been that,' said the King, `unless it was written to nobody, which isn't usual, you know.'
    `Who is it directed to?' said one of the jurymen.
    `It isn't directed at all,' said the White Rabbit; `in fact, there's nothing written on the OUTSIDE.' He unfolded the paper as he spoke, and added `It isn't a letter, after all: it's a set of verses.'
    `Are they in the prisoner's handwriting?' asked another of they jurymen.
    `No, they're not,' said the White Rabbit, `and that's the queerest thing about it.' (The jury all looked puzzled.)
    `He must have imitated somebody else's hand,' said the King. (The jury all brightened up again.)
    `Please your Majesty,' said the Knave, `I didn't write it, and they can't prove I did: there's no name signed at the end.'
    `If you didn't sign it,' said the King, `that only makes the matter worse. You MUST have meant some mischief, or else you'd have signed your name like an honest man.'
    There was a general clapping of hands at this: it was the first really clever thing the King had said that day.
    `That PROVES his guilt,' said the Queen.
    …
    `Let the jury consider their verdict,' the King said, for about the twentieth time that day.
    `No, no!' said the Queen. `Sentence first--verdict afterwards.'
    `Stuff and nonsense!' said Alice loudly. `The idea of having the sentence first!'
    `Hold your tongue!' said the Queen, turning purple.
    `I won't!' said Alice.
    `Off with her head!' the Queen shouted at the top of her voice. Nobody moved.
    `Who cares for you?' said Alice, (she had grown to her full size by this time.) `You're nothing but a pack of cards!'
