Yup, if they've got the goods on him. Course, if the "info" came from the same guys who told us there were WMDs in Iraq, I would not make assumptions.

Still I am delighted that Galloway came here to defend himself. Now maybe we'll get some of those documents that the participants in this oil for food fraud have been holding back. He's submitted himself to the jurisdiction of our courts.

Of course- the people of Halabja were killed by baseball bats... it just looked like a chemical attack.

Those mobile labs were for making balloons for children's parties at baghdad area Burger Kings. You know, the ones former UNSCOM inspector Scott Ritter liked to go to.

All those Iraqi scientists were really engaged in rose gardening.

The high tolerance aluminum parts in Libya before they opted for maraging steel were originally intended for centrifuges for enriching uranium as we've now established- but in Iraq they were only for making ridiculously expensive small rockets.

Every chemical factory should have a missile as a mascot.

There's no reason to be suspicious when purchases are made through front companies, after all.

The Iraqi long-range missile program was intended to develop peace bombs for delivering pamphlets, laughing gas and candy.

The pesticides stored at military sites weren't precursors or degraded chemical weapons- Iraq just had 10 foot tall killer roaches living in their military barracks.

The contaminants in the river was just fish sweat.

Those new digs at al Tuwaitha that UNSCOM failed to find were for storing potatoes. OK, so what if the potato idea doesn't work very well when the facilities are flooded- some day you might be able to dive down there and see all those soggy French fries.

Iraq really needed to import Niger peas and goats. It was a craving.

Iraq bribed presstitutes, politicians and so on because of Hussein's generosity, not necessity.

Iraq needed ring magnets to make toys for kids.

Iraq needed bulk packaged agar to make beer.

Iraq needed all that aerosil/cabosil to make huge quantities of skin lotion for the notoriously dry cracked skin of Bedoin tribesmen, and as filler in making trophy fish replicas out of fiberglass. Nevermind we haven't found these copious quantities of consumer goods they were making with all these dual-use materials.

Some Iraqi scientists fled to Syria and Europe just before the war because they were afraid the US would ask them about their copyrighted cutting edge research into *gasp* wheat germ.

All those hollow shells were really stylish vases for holding flowers.

Sudan? Where's that?

The binary chemical shell circa 1996 that was part of a failed bombing of US troops was just a one-of-a-kind protoype carried into Iraq by an African swallow - there are no more shells to be had, not even if you take a look in the Bekaa Valley.

Saddam Hussein learned his lesson and would never reconstitute full scale weapons programs if sanctions were lifted.
