Victory Is a Moving Target?

George Bush, in remarks prepared for a speech at Osan Air Base in South Korea Saturday:
"'And as long as I am the commander-in-chief, our strategy in Iraq will be driven by the sober judgment of our military commanders on the ground. So we will fight the terrorists in Iraq, and we will stay in the fight until we have achieved the victory our brave troops have fought and bled for.'"

Unless his commanders on the ground are telling him that it's still possible for Saddam to acquire WMDs, victory is pretty much achieved, no? I'm sure that's what he means by "victory" — he would never try to rewrite history and claim there was some other objective, would he? I mean, if the purpose of all of this were not the separation of Saddam from his WMDs, it really wouldn't matter whether we found them or not; it wouldn't matter whether the White House twisted WMD intelligence or not; it wouldn't matter whether there were massive intelligence failures or not — and the Bush administration has fought very hard to convince us that all of those things matter very much.
