Very, very old news. It is well known that Iraq had a nuclear program in 1990. Nobody disputes that. It is equally well known now that it did not have one by the late 1990s. Hans Blix was right.....but, of course, his critics will never apologize.
I don’t know if it is a smoking gun, but it’s great watching the clips from 2002 as Democrat after Democrat assured us that Hussein had weapons of mass destruction.
Of course he did. COMMON SENSE alone tells you that a guy like Hussein would NOT just say “oh well, I’ll just forget it...”
There is a REAL world out there. With REAL bad guys. They don’t just stop.
Saddam’s defense team wonders why the WP is reporting this today, if it is such old news? From the WP:
“But the newly uncovered documents suggest that Khan’s offer of nuclear assistance was more comprehensive than previously known. A 1990 letter attributed to a Khan business associate offered Iraq a chance to leap past technical hurdles to acquire weapons capability.”
You’re not supposed to use the word “restarted” anymore!
