Debate Over: Saddam Had WMD
It appears that Saddam had been playing a shell game with the UN weapons inspectors. Recently translated tapes from the office of Saddam show his attempt to hide his WMD programs.
He appeared to take pleasure in the fact that he always had the inspectors looking under the wrong shell.
This from Investor's Business Daily:
"We did not reveal all that we have," he says. "Not the type of weapons, not the volume of the materials we imported, not the volume of the production we told them about, not the volume of use. None of this was correct."
The tapes also reveal how Saddam talked about using proxies for terrorist attacks.
Many more hours of tapes still need to be translated. But what the tapes will inspire is a new question. Where did the his WMD weapons go? Perhaps, some of his neighbors know, like Syria.
