The actual opening line from the New York Times' article on Dubya's speech to the UN:

President Bush has formally changed the face of America's primary enemy from Osama bin Laden, whereabouts unknown, to Saddam Hussein, an old nemesis who cheated both Mr. Bush's father and President Clinton out of fulfillment of the terms of surrender that ended the 1991 Persian Gulf war.

Printing plants at the Ministry of Truth are working overtime to have the posters ready for today's Daily Hate.

(For a more substantive take on the pro-war arguments, such as they are, see Monday's post, or the Nicholas Kristof op-ed piece also in today's Times. Incidentally, both New York Review articles I referred to on Monday are now online at their web site. I may have more to say about the Kristof piece in a day or two....)
