Ummm, the munitions story was another Geortz bag of hot air. Note no one is talking about it now that the 2 day orgy of conspiracies are passed. DoD admitted to using them to blow up 400,000 tons of other munitions. ABC's cameras showed they were still there. The blame the Russians first crowd needs to chill out, they come in 2 brands: Cold War left overs who want their glory and Islamics who don't want a new Glory on their heads.
The people that believe we can totally trust the Russian govt are naive, to put it nicely. There's too much corruption in what's left of their shattered military. It's been well documented that a former Russian mafia figure assisted American authorities in the prevention of a nuclear submarine sale. I wont't go as far to say that the operation to spirit munitions (chemical, or otherwise) was an order that came from the top, but the Russians definitely had dealings with Iraq well after the sanctions were in place and leading up to the start of combat. If Gertz said it, you can believe it. He's no Dan Rather.
