The 75th Exploitation Task Force “for months before the [Iraq] war had been assembling biologists, chemists, computer experts and special forces to locate the weapons of mass destruction over which we had gone to war. By June [2003] they had retired from Iraq, baffled by their inability to uncover any of the weapons which they had been equipped to trace. As one of their officers expressed it in a candid, idiomatic expression, ‘We came loaded for bear country, but we found no bears.’ ” [The 15th of the month used for date sorting purposes only.]
