NYT: Saddam HAD a Nuke Program

Thursday, November 02, 2006
TKS on National Review Online: "What? Wait a minute. The entire mantra of the war critics has been 'no WMDs, no WMDs, no threat, no threat', for the past three years solid. Now we're being told that the Bush administration erred by making public information that could help any nation build an atomic bomb.

Let's go back and clarify: IRAQ HAD NUCLEAR WEAPONS PLANS SO ADVANCED AND DETAILED THAT ANY COUNTRY COULD HAVE USED THEM."


I'm sorry, but I think this has officially gotten to be Too Weird For Words.

The NYT says Saddam had HAD a nuke program in 1990, not that he had one in 2002. A lot of people contended and continue to contend that he had dismantled the program well before Gulf War II. He flagrantly refused to fully cooperate with efforts to prove he had dismantled it, so a lot of people found it logical to assume that meant he was still maintaining it.
Turns out he really had largely dismantled the program, but felt a compelling need to make some observers believe he still had it. Basically he feared an Iran who knew he was disarmed more than he feared a US who suspected he was still WMD-capable. At this point it is looking like maybe he was right after all.
