Saddam sounds like these hostage takers who are about to blow everyone they can before they get caught and killed by authorities.

These defector stories are getting laughable.
After a while nobody will believe them anymore.
The CIA should tell Iraqi National Congress to come up with better stories.

Keep stacking up the evidence against Iraq because soon we will be ready to roll with or without the arab world's consent. I think we will have support though with all of the latest Iraq grumblings.

The description could match pieces of spent nuclear reactor fuel rods the type of material that could be used in a radiological, or dirty, bomb.
Well, looks like this guy was sold phoney material. Spent fuel, even if it has been allowed to cool for 10 years, is still quite hot (perhaps 10,000 R/hr at 3 feet). A 3 minute exposure at this distance is lethal. There could not possibly be enough shielding in that trunk to allow anyone to carry it around without showing obvious signs of acute exposure.
Looks like another "shiny casing filled with pinball machine parts"
