The sixties is what happened to the Democrats.
The doctors tried to warn them too much acid would cause their offspring to have birth defects.
The doctors were right.
"Does the Administration wish to call witness? Just one Mr Chairman, Double-Agent aka Chief Inspector Closeau."
Well, not exactly. Remember, Bush only said the British intelligence had information indicating that Iraq TRIED to purchase uranium from Africa. He never said the information indicated they succeeded, nor that the Iraqis were making contact with people who were really capble of providing it, or just getting caught in a sting or a scam- in which case the docs would naturally be forged in order to convince the Iraqis the sellers had the goods.
The untold story is that the press seems to always fail to mention that Iraq did succeed in getting yellowcake from various sources before, including Niger, Braziland Portugal. It is this yellowcake which was stashed at that site under "international supervision" of el Baradei's IAEA after the Gulf War:
FEBRUARY 8, 1981 : (NIGER SHIPS YELLOWCAKE TO IRAQ) Niger ships yellowcake to Iraq in two batches. Batch one, which consists of 432 drums and 137,435kg of yellowcake, is received. Fourth Consolidated Report of the Director General of the International Atomic Energy Agency under paragraph 16 of Security Council resolution 1051 (1996), S/1997/779, 8 October 1997, pp. 25-26, ; Fact Sheet: Iraq's Nuclear Weapon Programme, IAEA Action Team
1982 : (IRAQ GETS YELLOWCAKE FROM NIGER & PORTUGAL) Iraq obtains 426 drums containing 139,409kg of yellowcake from Niger and 487 drums containing 148,348kg yellowcake from Portugal. Fact Sheet: Iraq's Nuclear Weapon Programme, IAEA Action Team
MARCH 18, 1982 : (IRAQ GETS YELLOWCAKE FROM NIGER) Iraq receives is second shipment of yellowcake from Niger. It consists of 426 drums containing 139,409kg yellowcake. Fourth Consolidated Report of the Director General of the International Atomic Energy Agency under paragraph 16 of Security Council resolution 1051 (1996), S/1997/779, 8 October 1997, pp. 25-26
The interesting thing is, according to el Baradei, Iraq does admit it had an official in Africa apparently at the time of this new disputed attempt to purchase who "might have given rise to the allegations" :
FEBRUARY 1999 : (AN IRAQI OFFICIAL WAS IN NIGER AND OTHER AFRICAN COUNTRIES AT THIS TIME, IRAQ WOULD SAY, IN EARLY 2003- AT LEAST ACCORDING TO UN'S EL BARADEI) The head of the U-N nuclear agency ElBaradei [in 2002] said Baghdad suggested the visit by an unidentified Iraqi official to a number of African countries, including Niger, in February 1999, might have given rise to the allegations.

But Chirac is absolutely irrational about his opposition. I thought it strange at the time. They were way too obvious in their opposition to the US...not the usual sneering criticism and refusal to cooperate, but actively trying to get allies who would oppose us.
Remember when Chirac told the Eastern Europeans to shut up, and threatened them with not being able to join the EU? That was not smooth diplomacy, but rather a ham-handed threat.
I still think that there is something really bad yet to be discovered, and the French are in it up to their eyeballs.
They sure are. I thought it odd Chirac went to such an extreme to protect Saddam. He was literally obsessed with protecting him - knowing he was a butcher.
Maybe they were lovers. Heh heh heh.
Oh, wait... they all show up at A.N. S.W.E.R. rallies and gripe about jooos, don't they?
These days named sources aren't doing much better. . .
The consonance of what would otherwise appear to be so many independent groups is both shocking and instructive.
For my part, I see a pattern being woven by what I call "International Socialism", but the exact identity of the power centers driving it remains somewhat unknown to me. I suspect that tools such as the Clintons, Schroeder, Chirac, Annan, McAuliffe and company (aka the 'Rats), former KGB operatives (but I repeat myself), ad nauseum, are beholden to the same masters.
The trick is determining just who exactly those masters are. I very much wish to find out, because once that information becomes public, identifying and severing the other tentacles of their pernicious organization will be much, much easier.
Let's not forget...it was FRANCE who provided the Iraqis with the Nuclear Reactor and all the technology behind it at Osirac...under Jacues Chiraq in the late 70's!
It took Israel to take it out before it became operational.
Now, doesn't it make a whole lot of sense that since France had no problem violating ALL the embargo terms and sold weapons illegally to Hussein, that a FRENCH owned mine in Niger MIGHT be willing to sell the Uranium Yellowcake?
Passes MY smell test big-time!!!!
They're the ones ordering the thought police to carve 666 into everyones forehead.
Now this is really interesting!

However, Conservatives and REAL Americans have NEVER "over-interpereted" Hans Blix's intelligence...we know the man couldn't find his a$$ with both hands, a map, and Barney Frank's intimate assistance!!!
That could be it. Your theory is more than logical. It could very well be prophetic.
Why else would Chirac go totally insane at the thought of the U.S. going into Iraq.
Nope it is something that would destroy Chirac and his government. It is something beyond the pale.
What if France was aware of 9/11 and did nothing? Or worse, what if they were part of the plot?
Could this be the same "yellow cake" that Saddam was trying to buy from outside sources?
This is a CRUCIAL point! Remember, the IAEA and UN waivered between saying the US "broke UN seals", and that they had never been to that site!!!!!
Then the media dropped the WHOLE issue!
Get the WORD out! This is BIG!!!
