Today in The Sun, Katie (19, from Liverpool) – who so memorably was almost moved to tears after the departure of David Blunkett – is alarmed to see Prince Harry sporting a Nazi armband. She says: “British people will be horrified by a Royal wearing such gear. The snap will send shockwaves around britain. He really ought to know better.”
Deeper in, it’s HarryHitlerHitlerHarryHitlerHitler… which is probably why the paper that assured us we were 45 minutes from doom ran out of room and didn’t have space for the following news item:
Washington Post – Search for Banned Arms In Iraq Ended Last Month: The hunt for biological, chemical and nuclear weapons in Iraq has come to an end nearly two years after President Bush ordered U.S. troops to disarm Saddam Hussein. The top CIA weapons hunter is home, and analysts are back at Langley.
Guardian – US gives up search for Saddam’s WMD: The US investigators searching for Saddam Hussein’s alleged weapons of mass destruction have given up the hunt and left Iraq with an appeal to the Pentagon for the release of several Iraqi scientists still being questioned, it was reported yesterday… (The) assessment found Saddam had destroyed his last weapons of mass destruction more than 10 years ago, and his capacity to build new ones had been dwindling for years by the time of the second Gulf war.

Oh, Murdoch-related item. Bit of a rush this morning. No time to explain. Via TTR2:
UPDATE – Hahahahahahahahaha! Headline Of The Day from Peter.
The B3ta board is bound to be alive with this today. Worth watching if you have the time. Feel free to post any highlights you see under comments.
