Some things never die. Or do they? “Show me the WMD’s” still rears it’s nonsense regularly……
July of 2008 seems like a lifetime ago. The Jihadist attack on 911 seems like an eternity ago too.
In 2008, it finally became public that hundreds of tons of URANIUM, a potential precursor for a nuclear weapon, had been successfully removed from IRAQ to Canada.

For years, the media and Democrats have sold the public an understanding that Gerorge W. Bush fabricated a story that Saddam Hussein had a WMD program in order to justify invading Iraq, which invasion then becomes “based on a lie.”
Douglas Hanson reported four years ago:
“Professor Norman Dombey, professor of theoretical physics at the University of Sussex, England, has confirmed that Saddam Hussein had more than
enough yellowcake uranium to make over 100 nuclear weapons.“The recent AP story was not news with respect to the existence of this stockpile in Iraq to those who follow such things closely. But I’m sure many readers had never been aware of this large stockpile of yellowcake in Iraq at all. This new AP story, and perhaps my article, helped get that information out.As Investor’s Business Daily more recently put it,“Seems to us this should be big news,”but“the mainstream media find it inconveniently contradicts the story they have been telling you for years.”Also, this new story reminded even those aware of its existence of what a huge and dangerous stockpile it was. First,it took 37 military flights to ship it from Baghdad to Diego Garcia.Even when not processed into nuclear weapons, it was dangerous in its own right, being radioactive. It could also be used in other methods of spreading radiation short of full nuclear bombs. The AP story explained the logistical nightmare of simply transporting it. It also cited the fear of it falling into the hands of insurgents. That is how dangerous it was when we were in control of it.
