More goodies for your files.
Thanks for the ping. It's illogical to believe there were no WMD in Iraq, IMO. And it's pointless for Powell to lament about not being told of that possibility at this juncture. In fact, it's irritating.
As others have pointed out, Saddam was allowed time to move or hide them. And they are likely dispersed.
The question I'd like to see Powell or any admin official ask publically is "who" had the interest in allowing Saddam to do just that. And why.
Thanks for the ping to this; I'd have missed it otherwise, kayak.
I'll save it to my files for future use. What I'd love to know is if Powell really thinks the intel was bad, or if he thinks the weapons were moved to Syria but can't say for a variety of reasons.
Nearly all the head guys put in charge of finding the WMD have said they have credible evidence that WMD were moved to Syria before 3/03. In fact, Powell himself showed satellite photos to the UN that showed convoys of trucks leaving known WMD sites in Iraq for the Syrian border.
Maybe someday we'll know.
