It depends on when the yellowcake was bought. I sure it was bought over a period of time but when were the last quantities purchased? Was the whole 550 metric tons known or was there just guess work. Did some of the yellowcake come from Niger after the visit by Joe?

This particular Yellowcake was all pre-1991.

This batch was pre-1991 (Gulf War round 1). Do keep in mind though, that the U.N. hadn't removed it or allowed anyone else to remove it from Iraq. Keep also in mind that they hadn't made Iraq destroy the special explosives (MDX and RDX) needed to make nuclear weapons that they also had in semi-sealed bunkers (and that they decided to throw a fit about right before the 2004 elections).
