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.
They were indeed permitted to check their tags and seals - the last check was made less than two months prior to the US warning the UN inspectors to leave the country.
Face it - this was not a 'find'. The international community knew that they were there, legally. Wise up.
