United Nations Says WMD-Related Material Has Gone Missing From Iraq

Good thing that stuff never existed. Must be due to Halliburton.

David Who wants to know anything but the pull-out time line? It's time to let the Iraqis to kill each other until another rise in power, then we can just drop a big one on them!
Geoff, your comment is based on a complete misunderstanding of what was lost. We never found any WMDs, not a single one. What has gone missing is dual use materials, such as high polished aluminum tubing which could be used for general purpose machinery but could also be used in nuclear reactors. The UN and the US knew about this material before the war and after the war. It was not what the administration was referring to when they said Iraq had WMDs.

It is also important to note that the administration never once claimed that the existence of these now missing material constituted an existence of WMDs. They would have been all over that if they thought they could leverage it. It's the best thing they do. Remember that the administration has publicly stated flat out that there are no WMDs in Iraq to be found, and that the WMDs may not have existed at least in the year leading up to the war.
