The Fabulous True Story of Curt Weldon's Iraq Adventure That Wasn't
Here is a goofy picture of Curt Weldon we found on the internet.
Story of the day: Contractor spends a couple months in Iraq in '03, becomes convinced of existence and location of WMDs. Comes back to US, convinces Representative Curt Weldon of same. Weldon decides to take secret trip to Iraq with Peter Hoekstra, get equipment and men, "go digging by the Euphrates," find weapons personally. Without telling Pentagon, press, or Democrats. Over Memorial Day weekend.
Strangely, it doesn't work out. Curt Weldon, we love you.
