    rncoutry also has a thread about the capture [good news]

    since this thread says news flash I'll post from Newsweek
    http://www.msnbc.com/news/876128.asp
    March 3 issue-_Hussein Kamel, the highest-ranking Iraqi official ever to defect from Saddam Hussein's inner circle, told CIA and British intelligence officers and U.N. inspectors in the summer of 1995 that after the gulf war, Iraq destroyed all its chemical and biological weapons stocks and the missiles to deliver them. _ <<<

    this was the guy in charge of the nuclear, biological, chemical and missile programs. why was this information supressed then? why has it remained buried until now?


    In other war related news
    Putin again says no
    Turkey says no
    Arab states say no
    Pope sends envoy to Washington D.C.

    Well, dadgum, I think that there could be 2 possibilities. One is that his veracity is doubted by TPTB. Another is that TPTB don't give a rat's rear about what's supposedly been destroyed...they want the docmentation.

    After all, if it's not documented, it's not done, right?

    from today's AP
    http://www.nytimes.com/aponline/inte...l/AP-Iraq.html

    >>Iraq said it would submit a detailed written report to the weapons inspectors in about a week with a proposal for verifying its claims that it unilaterally destroyed anthrax stores and about 1.5 tons of VX, a deadly nerve agent, Ueki [an inspector spokesperson] said.

    Saddam Hussein's scientific adviser, Lt. Gen. Amer al-Saadi, said Sunday night that Iraq wanted to use DNA testing to help determine the characteristics of the destroyed anthrax. <<

    about documentation, sure it is important.....

    most recently some 1,600 guns
    a goggle search

    That is a very good question, one I hope to see more people asking.

    Can Mr. Bush take "NO" for an answer?

    Can Mr. Bush take "NO" for an answer?

    Bush sits, with his fingers in his ears, saying "lalalala....I can't hear you!!"

    Well if Bush gives up, he may not be able to say "Sa-damn" all the time. I think he does it just to p*ss him off...
