Does Ray LaHood (R-Ill) know something we don’t?

Yesterday, at an editorial meeting with a local newspaper, Lahood was asked about the impact of Iraq on next year’s election.

LaHood replied that the US is on the verge of capturing Saddam and once that happens the resistance will collapse. When a member of the paper’s editorial board asked LaHood if he knew something they didn’t, the five-term congressman — who sits on the House Intel Committee — said “Yes I do.”

So is LaHood just blowing smoke or does he know something we don’t?

Put me down for smoke. But read this and make your own decision.
