No WMD? Maybe, Maybe not

From the Idaho State Journal comes this news...

IDAHO FALLS -A former Iraqi nuclear scientist told a crowd here that Iraq was on the brink of having a nuclear bomb just before the 1991 invasion of the country by U.S. and allied forces. Mahdi Obeidi, who worked under Saddam Hussein, spoke to a full house gathered at the World Nuclear University Summer Institute Monday. "Iraq was on the verge of having a nuclear bomb," he said. "The world will never know what Saddam would have done." In June 2003, Obeidi contacted a former United Nations Weapons inspector and told him there was part of a gas centrifuge system for enriching uranium and blueprints hidden under a rose bush in his garden. He put them there 12 years earlier just before the Desert Storm invasion, under orders from Hussein Kamel, Saddam Hussein's son-in-law.
I have something to say about this... Read more... Mahdi Obeidi... ...Mahdi Obeidi! Haay! I remember him! According to Chucky Shumer, he's just another wacko hired by the right to discredit John Kerry (-who served in Viet Nam) claiming that he had nuclear production stuff in his rose garden.

"We understood the consequences of failure. We had talented men and women who worked under the greatest motivation known to man. Fear for their lives and families."
They had the tools, they had the knowledge, they were working hard to put them together... Working hard with good reason. Theen us damn imperialist Americans interupted their little party... It seems, Just in time.
During questions, an audience member asked why, if Saddam had no weapons in 2003, did he not allow inspectors into Iraq. Obeidi responded simply, "Because he was a lunatic."
SO, If you were Bush, what would you have done?
