Actually, even the UN itself had to admit that Saddam had WMDs.http://abcnews.go.com/blogs/headlines/2007/08/nerve-gas-scare/In the 1990s, the UN found samples of phosgene in Iraqi hands. The samples were confiscated and sent to a UN lab in America… where they were promptly “lost” by the staffers, only turning up in 2007 when a janitor found them while helping to box the lab up for relocation. So for a full decade, anyone who worked in the lab could have been exposed to phosgene. Yeah.The fact that the vials didn’t re-appear until well after the whole furor over Iraq died down caused more than a few conspiracy theories back in the day.Couple this with the fact that the insurgents used at least one mustard gas shell against our guys, and that says “Saddam did indeed still have something somewhere”.
