WMD Proof? Tis True, Tis True

The New York Times reports that Saddam Hussein's Iraq did have a nuclear weapons program after all. It's hard to believe that it's the NY Times actually printing this, but, that gives it more credibility in the eyes of those who've called President Bush a liar about WMDs.

Last March, the federal government set up a Web site to make public a vast archive of Iraqi documents captured during the war. The Bush administration did so under pressure from Congressional Republicans who had said they hoped to "leverage the Internet" to find new evidence of the prewar dangers posed by Saddam Hussein.

But in recent weeks, the site has posted some documents that weapons experts say are a danger themselves: detailed accounts of Iraq's secret nuclear research before the 1991 Persian Gulf war. The documents, the experts say, constitute a basic guide to building an atom bomb.

Last night, the government shut down the Web site after
The New York Times asked about complaints from weapons experts and arms-control officials. . . .

Among the dozens of documents in English were Iraqi reports written in the 1990s and in 2002 for United Nations inspectors in charge of making sure Iraq had abandoned its unconventional arms programs after the Persian Gulf war. Experts say that at the time, Mr. Hussein's scientists were on the verge of building an atom bomb, as little as a year away.

So, here we are back to knowing that Saddam did have WMDs. Time for another prediction (Yeah!)...

Unless the mainstream media plays down this very important story, we'll be hearing flip-floping Senator Kerry switch back to remembering that he actually did see the intelligence reports about Iraq's WMDs. And, that he was one of the members of Congress who approved the invasion of the Middle Eastern country, and the removal of Saddam Hussein from power.
