Rove advised Bush admin to cover-up Iraq's real WMDs because they 'lost the argument'

What an Architect! FoxNews, maybe it's time to show this regularly-attending clown the door, ya think?
On Thursday's Mark Levin Show: Mark talks about a breaking news story that there were indeed many chemical weapons found in Iraq since 2003 and yet the Bush Administration, via Karl Rove, said not to release this info. Rove said that it wouldn't be politically wise to do so around the 2006 election, that the issues of WMDs was in the past and that they lost the argument on it. Meanwhile, it was the Democrats constantly attacking Republicans as well as our military saying that the war was on false pretenses, that there were never any weapons there and now we find out there were and it was kept secret!

Whether they're causing the same degree of destruction from within is another argument, but with secrets like this, is it no wonder why so many view the GOP as equally corrupt as the Democratic Party when you've got a guy like Rove advising a Republican president? Imagine those advising Obama!
TheDailyBeast: There’s one man, some Republicans say, who kept the public from learning about the chemical shells littered around Iraq. He was Bush's most important political adviser.

Starting in 2004, some members of the George W. Bush administration and Republican lawmakers began to find evidence of discarded chemical weapons in Iraq. But when the information was brought up with the White House, senior adviser Karl Rove told them to “let these sleeping dogs lie.”

The issue of Iraq’s WMD remnants was suddenly thrust back into the fore this week, with a blockbuster New York Times report accusing the Bush administration of covering up American troops’ chemically induced wounds.

To people familiar with the issue, both inside that administration and outside, the blame for the coverup falls on one particular set of shoulders: Rove’s.
The cover-up unravels further as Rick Santorum and Dave Wurmser are tapped for more details as theDailyBeast piece goes on. But Levin summed it up nicely last night:
"So this was all about politics and manipulating the press! We sent men and women to war for among other reasons to get these damn weapons. ... I'm sorry, ladies and gentlemen, I know families who lost sons over there. And the President of the United States and his staff should have announced, 'We found these weapons!' But they didn't, because they say they lost the argument. 'Why bring it up now in the 2006 election cycle? It's beyond us; it's past; let's not get into it now.'"

I wish conservative politicians, pundits and voters would unify behind something better than what these Rovians have transformed the Republican Party into, 'cause we need a New one.

ADDENDUM: Is it finally starting to sink in why Levin continues to view the current incarnation of the Republican Party as a 'liberal, neo-statist party' as clearly stated the day before?

More from Friday's Mark Levin Show:
Rick Santorum calls in to discuss a new article which showed that Karl Rove amongst others didn't want to release to the American people that WMDs were actually found in Iraq. Rove decided to play politics rather than inform the people who are the ones actually fighting and supporting the war efforts. Karl Rove wants to play both sides, he goes after conservatives when it's convenient for him, as well as the Democrats.
