What Scuds?

This morning, CNN reported, “In Baghdad, Iraqi Information Minister Mohammed Al-Sahaf said he had heard a report that U.S. forces had downed a Scud. “But we don’t have Scud missiles,” he said.” As GMU law professor Ronald Rotunda notes, “This is an existential question: if Iraq does not have Scud missiles, how can a US missile down it? The French are very interested in existentialism, so perhaps they will explain.”
