WMD Materials (that didn't exist) Missing in Iraq

Surprise. An AP article is reporting that United Nations satellite imagery indicates that a bunch of bad stuff used to make biological and chemical weapons as well as missiles are missing in Iraq.

U.N. satellite imagery experts have determined that material that could be
used to make biological or chemical weapons and banned long-range missiles has
been removed from 109 sites in Iraq, U.N. weapons inspectors said in a report
obtained Thursday.

In the report to the U.N. Security Council, acting chief weapons inspector
Demetrius Perricos said he's reached no conclusions about who removed the items
or where they went. He said it could have been moved elsewhere in Iraq, sold as
scrap, melted down or purchased.

What's important here isn't that this stuff existed. Most of us were aware of that (even the Bush bashers who deny it publicly). It is THIS - they don't know where it went. Not a good thing in that part of the world.

It will be interesting to see if this gets as much play on the MSM airwaves as Deep Throat.

Just a thought.
