Thursday, April 10, 2003 BAGHDAD, Iraq - U.S. officials are investigating a massive underground nuclear facility that was discovered below the Al Tuwaitha complex of the Iraqi Atomic Energy Commission in a suburban town south of Baghdad.

While they aren't prepared to say the discovery is the smoking gun proving Iraq's possession of weapons of mass destruction, Fox News confirmed that officials are very interested in the labyrinth of labs and warehouses unearthed by U.S. forces.

Bill Tierney an ex inspector, told Fox that they had this a month ago...Bill said that they told Elbaredi where to look and he never did.
Anybody else see that it was on a Sunday.

Saw that too. There was also another inspector on O'Reilly (I think) who said he was certain that Saddam had a woking atomic bomb. If the report of the plutonium is true... then that inspector's report is credible.

3 things are need to build a nuke: 1. A bomb design. 2. Bomb components. 3. Weapons-grade atomic material. We know he already had the first 2.

Yes, I remember that. He said that El Baredi did not want to find it; he wanted to prolong the UN presence there.

"How did the world miss all of this? Why couldn't they see what was happening here?"

There are none so blind as those who will not see...
