Moron heaven,

Hey Glenn!

You write the WMD from Iraq are in Europe according to the UN.

Except that the very article in the Wa Po you cite says that:

Mohammed ElBaradei, the director general of the International Atomic Energy Agency, warned the U.N. Security Council in a letter that U.N. satellite photos have detected "the extensive removal of equipment and, in some instances, removal of entire buildings" from sites that had been subject to U.N. monitoring before the U.S.-led war against Iraq.

ElBaradei said an IAEA investigation "indicates that large quantities of scrap, some of it contaminated, have been transferred out of Iraq, from sites monitored by the IAEA." He said that he has informed the United States about the discovery and is awaiting "clarification."

After the 1991 Persian Gulf War, U.N. inspectors discovered, inventoried and destroyed most of the equipment used in Iraq's nuclear weapons program. But they left large amounts of nuclear equipment and facilities in Iraq intact and "under seal," including debris from the Osirak reactor that was bombed by Israel in 1981. That debris and the buildings are radioactively contaminated.
[emphasis added]

I hope you're joking Glenn, because I'm getting sick of how many times are pro-war idiots going to point to already defanged and well-known not to mention mothballed and antique nuclear gear as evidence of a weapons-grade reconstituted production program!!!

In fact, since these sites were known and monitored prior to invasion their sudden reappearance as scrap means that the invasion was so poorly managed as to allow widespread looting and reselling of sanction-monitored and sealed equipment.

Yes, that's right there is now clear supporting evidence that the invasion has increased illegal nuclear proliferation (via Needlenose).

Are you joking Glenn or maybe just plain dumb?
