Here we go.
You don't suppose a little thing like 50,000 tubes at $100+ a pop could be the reason the Germans were not that thrilled with the fall of Saddam, do you?
Nah, couldn't be.
Headache to who? :)

So Condi was right!
We must not let truth get in the way of the agenda............
Bush Lied ..these were used for bicycles
There was a great show on AQ Kahn on one of the Discovery Channels last week. VERY informative. His method using smaller tubes and bypassing various procdures to come to a smaller and quicker processing of uranium/plutonium was shown to use such tubes.
Everytime I see one of those shows, it completely shatters what Liberals and most Democrats say about Iraq/Iran and recent world events.
Oh, I thought they were for baseball bats and jungle gymns at the renowned Baghdad parks where children and families play.
Send this to Joe Wilson, Scott Ritter and John Kerry.
Another nail in the naysayers coffin. Thanks jveritas.

..only at first,but then came the need for Kazoo's to lead the giant spiders out of Baghdad
I am probably just being more dense than usual here but what is new in these documents? They obviously ordered the tubes but I don't think that was ever in doubt.
What is in this info that would lead someone to believe that they were to be used for centrifuging and not as rocket parts?
Thanks....I can't believe we're still hearing that there were no WMD by congresscritters on the Sunday Morning BS Programs.
OK, someone who has familiarity with armaments please comment on this: the aluminum tubes had an outer diameter of 81 mm, not an inner diameter of 81 mm. When armaments are being discussed in terms of their dimension (for example 105 mm tank ammunition or 122 mm artillery rocket launcher), wouldn't the meaningful dimension of the tube/barrel from which that round was launched be the inner diameter, and not the outer diameter? So, if the Iraqi intent was to use the tubes for such purposes, why isn't it described as a "74 mm rocket program"? Was the 81-mm program designation invented by the ISG, or was it used by the Iraqis?
