Nothing to See Here, Just Keep Moving
From the AP: US removes uranium from Iraq.
And not trace amounts either; according to the story, more than 500 tons of yellowcake was evacuated from Iraq during a secret operation that lasted more than three months.
Obviously, it takes more than yellowcake to make a nuclear weapon. And the stockpile discovered in Iraq apparently dated from the first Gulf War. But someone in Saddam's regime apparently felt it was important enough to keep the stuff around.
And didn't we learn--after Operation Iraqi Freedom--that Saddam had been shopping for centrifuges? Again, not enough to build a bomb, but another key element in that process.
Back to you, Ambassador Wilson.
