This is the rather ancient story of the known stocks of yellowcake that was under IAEA seal prior to Gulf War II.
This stockpile was obtained prior to Gulf War I, was found after Gulf War I, sealed by the IAEA, and regularly inspected.
Yellowcake is not a “WMD” - the only way it could kill you is if someone dropped a bucket of it on your head from a three story building.
This was NOT “discovered” after Gulf War II, was not in violation of any UN or IAEA sanctions or regulations, and was not the reason the Bush administration went to war.
Yep..thanks. I didn’t realize it was an old article. I remember well the crap surrounding the Tuwaitha site and the leftist media attack on the whole thing with the ‘yellowcake’. I still have a bookmark to the military presser that disproved the lies that the media was trying to spread.
I thought this was a new article....lol
The question is : why did Saddam have a chunk of yellowcake that size? Did he intend to restart his nuclear wmd program at some point ? A number of inspectors and analysts, like Charles Duelfer, did think that.
