Very Important Ping.
The complete picture of Saddam's Iraq is clearly in focus now for anyone who cares to look.
David Kay: "It was absolutely prudent to go to war. The system was collapsing, Iraq was a country with desire to develop WMDs, and it was attracting terrorists like flies to honey."
Smoking gun? Damn sure looks like it! Once again, great work!
What else did they think he'd do with something like that? Of course they knew what it was for.
Thanks...you're right it is an important document.
So the IAEA knew the furnaces were there and the intention of the previous program. Why wouldn't they have a seal? I know absolutely nothing about these furnaces - how big they are or how difficult to transport. Why were they left in Iraq with no seal?
Looks to be a very important find, jveritas. Your work is much appreciated.

Jveritas, you magnificent ...
The Degussa Vacuum furnaces were supplied to Iraq in the 1980s by a German firm (Degussa AG based in Frankfurt Germany)
At the time Saddam handed his last-minute "compliance" to the UN in late 2002, there were some articles (NYT was one place I believe) about how he seemed to be using the disclosures to blackmail certain German companies, or something to that effect. I have the articles somewhere but will need to dig them up.
Check this out.......

Thanks. I do remember something about removal of seals. Just wanted to make sure I wasn't missing something.
But there's the rub. So few "care to look." This should be headline material for all the networks, but it doesn't even get a mention, let alone a headline.
I actually had one lady the other day tell me that the UN sanctions against Iraq said that Saddam didn't have any WMD. I asked her if she knew what UN sanctions were, and she said yes, but wouldn't describe what she thought they were.
She also said that WE gave Saddam the weapons he used on the Kurds. I pointed out to her that, no matter where he got them, his use of the weapons on the Kurds proved he had WMD. Her response? "No it doesn't!"
They're looney, I tell ya.
Not yet :)
