Define Irony.

And no, not in that Alannis Morrisette sort of sense of the word.

OSLO (Reuters) - President George W. Bush and Prime Minister Tony Blair are among nominees for the 2004 Nobel Peace Prize before a Sunday deadline for nominations despite failure to find weapons of mass destruction in Iraq. (full story linked, @ reuters.co.uk).

US reporting here? Nil.
