I don’t know how this story got past the al-AP editorial board, but it is sure to be ignored by everyone else. Saddam Hussein had a nuclear weapons program that included 550 tons of yellowcake. That is enough needed to produce about 145 nuclear warheads. From the American Thinker . . .
The media have been telling us for years that Saddam had no WMD, so “Bush’s War”: was based on a “lie.” And those who believed Saddam did have WMD or WMD programs were delusional or worse.
But today, on July 6, 2008, the Associated Press reports that
* Saddam Hussein had a nuclear program
* At the Tuwaitha nuclear complex just south of Baghdad
* Which included 550 metric tons (over 1.2 million pounds) of “yellowcake”, or concentrated uranium
* And multiple devices that could be used in a nuclear weapon.
Should be obvious to everyone now that the 550 tons of yellowcake was for making radioactive sand castles, not for developing nuclear weapons grade uranium. Now that the dis-confirmations have been dis-confirmed, who was lying and who was ignoring?
For about five years now, those of us who thought Saddam Hussein probably had at least WMD programs, if not WMD themselves, have been called not only wrong, but illogical and insane.
There’s not enough bandwidth on the Internet to handle all the ‘corrections’ and apologies for years of disinformation by the media and Democrat politicians in general. We weren’t the ones who were crazy ideologues.
