There needs to be a law that all liberals have to wear “Iraq was working to build nukes” tattooed on their face.

It was really weird to hear sense on the ABC news and nonsense on Brinker’s show. The audience *slammed* Brinker’s fill-in. :-)

I heard it too. It was on WABC-AM 77O in NYC at 5PM. I made a comment here.

Check the links from Yahoo and Google News in comment# 1.

Apparently, Sharon Begley, Jim Lobe and a whole lot of other people not only believed Saddam had no WMD programs, but that anyone who did believe such a thing was clearly illogical or insane. In fact, the only interesting question to them was what is wrong with our minds.

Well I guess that would have to apply to our inept Commander In Chief who apparently doesn't have a clue on how to fight a propaganda war.

"Now, look, I didn’t—part of the reason we went into Iraq was—the main reason we went into Iraq at the time was we thought he had weapons of mass destruction. It turns out he didn’t, but he had the capacity to make weapons of mass destruction. But I also talked about the human suffering in Iraq, and I also talked the need to advance a freedom agenda. And so my question—my answer to your question is, is that—imagine a world in which Saddam Hussein was there, stirring up even more trouble in a part of the world that had so much resentment and so much hatred that people came and killed 3,000 of our citizens".

If he wasn't half retarded he would have never said anything remotely like "It turns out they didn't".

The only reason the media have been able to get away with this is because the the administration comes to the propaganda war unarmed.

It's too bad the Strategerist has left the room.

I'd be very interested to know what the Strategerist's opinion is of why Ambassador Zawahi, Iraq's representative on nuclear issues (VERY passionate arguing for Iraq's nuclear armament at the 1995 NPT Conference), went to Niger on what the IAEA called a trade mission?

Looking at Niger's only significant exports, was Zawahi looking for:

A. Cowpeas?
B. Peanuts?
C. Goatskins?
D. Uranium?

I wonder why the Strategerist believes it was probably A, B, or C?

..or why would the IAEA lie about this?

The IAEA was concerned enough that they investigated and interviewed Zawahi about the trip, though at the insistence of the Iraqi government, the interview was monitored by Saddam's agents.

The CIA group that Plame was associated with thought the idea that Hussein was attempting to obtain (more) yellowcake (from Niger) was ridiculous, justified that by arguing that because he already HAD this huge quantity they couldn't see him wanting more.

Exactly. The MSM and their left-wing blowhards continuously said this was a fools errand and that the mission to NIGER, WHICH WILSON SCRWED-UP, found nothing. Not to mention it was stupid to even try.

Funny then nobody (press or Democrats) mentions the Nigerian yellowcake already in country.

And if I remember correctly, when our troops got to Tuwaitha, they found some barrels of (can't remember what) but no nuclear material.

Some of us never lost sight of the fact that Saddam Hussein was a threat both in theory and in actuality. The President’s worst mistake was “admitting” the premise for going to war (more diverse than WMD, but the WMD was still made the definitive magic bullet reason) was incorrect. This marked the downturn of his presidency, effectively souring much of his legacy and depleting his political capital which leaves the Republican party in such a weak position today.

For want of a nail the shoe was lost,
for want of a shoe the horse was lost,
for want of a horse the knight was lost,
for want of a knight the battle was lost.
So it was a kingdom was lost - all for want of a nail.

Soon as Barak gets in office, the news on Iraq will get very positive.

Remember when Bill Clinton took office, about a month in he said something to the effect they “just discovered” a revenue shortfall and had to raise taxes. They’ll pull the same shenanigans regarding Iraq, and I wouldn’t be surprised, Iran.

Thanks....that’s what I keep thinking. If it’s all pre-1991 and the same stuff we already knew existed, what’s the big hoopdedoo?

There is no hoopdedoo, except perhaps Neocons' last hurrah, trying to resurrect their failed big-government ideology once again, using warmed-over minor stories.

OK, Gondring, maybe you can cover for Strategerist.

Let me repeat the unanswered question:

I'd be very interested to know what the Strategerist's opinion is of why Ambassador Zawahi, Iraq's representative on nuclear issues (VERY passionate arguing for Iraq's nuclear armament at the 1995 NPT Conference), went to Niger on what the IAEA called a "trade mission"?

I wonder why the Strategerist believes it was probably A, B, or C?

..or why would the IAEA lie about this?

The IAEA was concerned enough that they investigated and interviewed Zawahi about the trip, though at the insistence of the Iraqi government, the interview was monitored by Saddam's agents.

...Perhaps the Iraqi's nuke guy was hoping to export fine oil paintings of The Great Hussein to penniless Nigerien goatherders?

"This is not remarkable news- I believe this material was from Tuwaitha and the stockpile there dated back to the late 1970’s when Iraq bought Nigerien yellowcake to produce fuel for its Osirak facility - which Israel destroyed in 1979? After DESERT STORM The UN had the Tuwaitha stockpile pretty much under its observation, if not outright control."-silverleaf, 7/5/08

What kind of control did the UN have after UNSCOM inspectors were removed from Iraq in 1998?

I don't know. That's an excellent question. Here again is a link to yesterday's thread on the subject. Some people there seemed to know quite a bit about it:
