Buyin’ Chemical Weapons ‘Cuz We Can’t Find Sh*t February 16, 2015Posted by geoff in News.
A lot of controversy over the New York Times’ story on the CIA’s secret chemical weapons purchases in Iraq. Some claim that it vindicates Bush, while others note that the weapons were built in the 1980’s, and so didn’t represent an active chemical weapons program at the time of the invasion.
What struck me, though, was that they bought all 400 warheads from one random guy. Just an Iraqi entrepreneur who happened to have a line on some old chemical weapons. Seems like a tip-of-the-iceberg scenario to me.
If we couldn’t find 400 warheads being hawked by some yahoo after 3 years of searching, how likely is it that we found everything?
