Oh, but they are serving. Serving canapés at conferences. There is no democracy without canapés. Defend democracy! Defend canapés!

Since coming to power in 2000, he has defied U.N. sanctions to provide Saddam Hussein with military equipment--lots of it. And now, U.S. officials are speaking on the record of Syria's secret production of weapons of mass destruction and its weaponization of missile batteries and rockets. Assad's spokesmen are busily fanning out to news outlets to deny these charges and denounce them as Israeli-inspired disinformation. We've bought this rug before.

Well, the rug has definitely been sold before. Of course the threads have so far proven impossible to find.
