But a pac can have legitimate information so lets roll that bean footage.
In a report which might alternately be termed “stunning” or “terrifying”, United Nations weapons inspectors confirmed last week not merely that Saddam Hussein had weapons of mass destruction, but that he smuggled them out of his country, before, during and after the war.
Late last week, the UN Monitoring, Verification and Inspection Commission (UNMOVIC) briefed the Security Council on Saddam's lightning-fast dismantling of missile and WMD sites before and during the war. UNMOVIC executive chairman Demetrius Perricos detailed not only the export of thousands of tons of missile components, nuclear reactor vessels and fermenters for chemical and biological warheads, but also the discovery of many (but not most) of these items - with UN inspection tags still on them -- as far afield as Jordan, Turkey and even Holland
And since the IRAQ SURVEY GROUP was well... surveying IRAQ of course it wouldn't find weapons that are outside of Iraq.
Looking at the fact several former Baathists are now in Yemen and offered positions in the Yemeni military it begins to make you wonder about the Scudesque missles being shipped into Yemen by Kim Jung Il.
But until Iraq was calmer ( and it is calmer now) and until people were safer with their families no actual progress could have been made.
Perricos highlighted the proliferation danger to the Security Council, as well he should: UNMOVIC has no idea where most of the WMD material is today, just that it exists and it's gone; and anything in Syria is likely to be in Jerusalem or New York tomorrow.
So folks... Syria hasn't been investigated. And we have instability on the Harrari case...
and rumors and half news items talking that Assad wants protection outside of Syria makes me wonder about some of the house cleaning that happened in Syria.
but he adds in another Jab about the No WMD crowd.
You probably haven't heard about Canada's Prime Minister Paul Martin either -- a socialist and no friend of America. Addressing a group of 700 university researchers and business leaders in Montreal last month, Martin stated bluntly that terrorists have acquired WMDs from Saddam. “The fact is that there is now, we know well, a proliferation of nuclear weapons, and that many weapons that Saddam Huseein had, we don't know where they are…. [T]errorists have access to all of them,” the Canadian premier warned.
Why would the Canuk PM say this well after the US government declared "No WMD existed."
Well charley the Canadian Navy was responsible for much of the UN embargo actions on Iraq during the time period of the war. So Paul Martin and his government if any boats got through their blockades would have real and credible knowledge on the subject.
