More about Iraq's WMD

Not a lot in this Investor's Business Daily editorial is new. They discuss the Saddam tapes, WMD & Russia, how WMD were transported to Syria and Lebanon-all things that have been out there for a while but which haven't been widely covered. Just the same, this editorial is exceptionally well written and comprehensive. It also combines the varied evidence of WMD with why Iraqi WMD's scared so many of us:
"What was most disturbing," said John Tierney, the ex- FBI agent who translated the tapes, "was the fact that the individuals briefing Saddam were totally unknown to the U.N. Special Commission (or UNSCOM, the group set up to look into Iraq's WMD programs)."

Perhaps most chillingly, the tapes record Iraq Foreign Minister Tariq Aziz talking about how easy it would be to set off a WMD in Washington. The comments come shortly after Saddam muses about using "proxies" in a terror attack.
It must be a leisurely existence to be a war opponent and to wipe away these concerns as though they didn't even exist.
