Hey, Carry_Okie and Publius6961. What is your DEAL? Don't be back-stabbers; you're too eager on this one and you've jumped the gun. I googled Sodium cyanide, and found no healthful use for it on the Wikipedia listing, unless Iraq is big into mining. It's one of the most rapidly-acting poisons. Granted, hydrogen cyanide can be used for good purposes, but so can nuclear bombs, and we didn't send THEM to Saddam either.
Avacado, good catch. I checked out the PDF and couldn't find quanities listed anywhere. Is there any way of finding that out, I wonder?
Ping to Greg and Peach, my other FRiends who were (and presumably still are) interested in the WMD discussion.

Saddam had a past history of using sodium cyanide to manufacture the chemical weapon called tabun.

Countries could freely export to Iraq anything on List A that is less than 10% solution and if more than that concentrate then they were supposed to submit a form to the UN. I believe a company in Finland exported sodium cyanide to Iraq in 2002 without submitting a form to the UN. And since the program was handled by the Oil-for-Food program, we all know how honest that operation was.

Good post, avacado; thanks for the thread and thank you for assisting freeper's trying to translate those documents.
Thanks for the ping, Dave, and for remembering my interest in this matter.
The UN hasn't dealt honestly with the Iraq/WMD situation for their own agenda-driven reasons and since the UN is so dirty, I tend to trust freeper translations more than any others.
