I did feel that most of the media dismissed the WMD claims as "pesticides" just a little too quickly - organic phosphates have a number of applications, and human beings are considered "pests" by quite a broad range of people.

Dr Hassan: "But we have never produced ricin in Iraq. It's very difficult to do."

Utter, total BS. You can do it in your kitchen witha Mister Coffee.

Near the vacant lot where the castor oil plant had stood was a restored packing shed. No-one could explain why it appeared to have a reinforced concrete roof. Dr Ameen said: "That depends on the philosophy of the building's designer. Maybe it's good for ventilation."

What was the castor oil plant for? To make brake fluid for cars and trucks. Why did the US insist on bombing such a humble venture? The castor oil seed husks could be treated to produce a biological toxin called ricin.

Dr Hassan: "But we have never produced ricin in Iraq. It's very difficult to do."


Oh??? How do you KNOW???

In a new section of the factory, which Dr Ameen suspected was the reason for the renewed US interest in Falluja, he explained how a few months ago several big tanks had been trucked in for a pesticide plant. "Maybe their satellites saw the trucks coming in and the work being done."

Interesting old article in light of the recent ricin mailings and in light of news that Syria used wmd in an attack...
