"The burden of proof is now on the Libs. If they can disprove this book, then let’s get it on and put up the facts."


The facts are all out there. Take this quote:

"Nuclear material to include yellowcake and enriched uranium were found in Iraq after the 2003 invasion."

That is so demonstrably false that I actually laughed when I read it. The yellowcake and enriched uranium that was found in Iraq was not touted as a "find" by the administration because we already knew it was there legally - it was tagged, sealed and monitored by the IAEA:

"The visit was agreed after weeks of pleading by the IAEA, which has kept the radiological materials at the site safely under UN seal for 12 years" - http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/middle_east/3009082.stm

The invasion, and subsequent looting, actually led to the possibility of this stuff falling into the wrong hands, so it's little wonder that it's kept quiet. Seriously, how can this book be taken seriously if it contains such obvious misinformation?

You offered, perhaps naively: "it was tagged, sealed and monitored by the IAEA". Uh, we found out that the U.N. inspectors were allowed to 'tag and seal' lots of things, but were not permitted to check their 'tags and seals' easily, sometimes having to wait months for permission to check their 'tags and seals'. Try another approach other than placing faith in the same fools who waltzed the oil for food program.

It was tagged but it wasn't sealed. After they knew it wasn't sealed the UN demanded its removal and was ignored.
