No WMD's?

For several years now we've heard from the ideological left in this country that Iraq had no weapons of mass destruction or WMD's. Now anyone who has really followed Iraq in any detail at all knows that all sorts of bits and pieces of WMD material have been found. There are also reports of material being moved to the Beqaa Valley in Lebanon.

This past week we have a report that the U.S. just secretly removed 550 metric tons of yellowcake uranium from Iraq. What does one do with that? I'll give you a clue. You don't eat it for dessert with strawberries. Yes, yellowcake uranium is what you use to build a bomb - a really big bomb, as in do you know how to spell Nagasaki.

But I thought Sadam didn't have any WMD's or WMD programs? Huh?

Did this make the news? All the yellowcake? I don't remember hearing this on the national press? I'd have thought it would be headline news. But, I guess that's the leftist press, or has my head been stuck in the sand all week?

No it didn't make a lot of news reports, but there was an AP story about it.
