From what I know that's been told to me in confidence from a full bird Spec Ops that has spent quite a bit of time in Iraq, the "cover-up" in the Lib media and "oops" "we really didn't find any WMD's" from the Bush admin., coupled what is being continuously found month to month, is that the US now has quite a bit of info, documented proof, that implicates a number of certain UN member European nations (allies?) and 2 of Iraq's next door neighbors were in serious violation of several UN sanctions of "dealings" with Iraq after the 1991 Gulf War right up to the 2003 "political rearrangement" of Iraq.
So, in all honesty, the administration, CFR folks, Trilateral Commission members, and the Bildeburg members, have agreed to the need of the cover-ups as not to scare the general public (world that is) as to threaten global economic business, and most importantly cover their butts from a political viewpoint.

I find some plausibility in your reply. Perhaps not as much of a "cabal / conspiracy" kind of thing mind you, but the basic premise could be part of it.
This goes to Eastforker's original statement too - Russia and China. But we all do recall that France doth protested just a wee bit too much.
I assumed it was b/c they were getting rich off "oil for food." But, I suppose they could have had other types of dealings contrary to UN sanctions.
Of course, if MOST of the weapons are in Syria, we can't really start pounding the table quite yet.
