Well, much of the “Bush Lied” lunacy that sane people have had to suffer through for the past severl years has been based around the arguement of wheter or not Saddam tried to purchase yellowcake from Niger.
We don’t know if he did or not, but he sure had a whole lot of the stuff.
Gosh, Weapons of Mass Destruction – or at least material that could be used to make them. Funny that.
The last major remnant of Saddam Hussein’s nuclear program – a huge stockpile of concentrated natural uranium – reached a Canadian port Saturday to complete a secret U.S. operation that included a two-week airlift from Baghdad and a ship voyage crossing two oceans.
The removal of 550 metric tons of “yellowcake” – the seed material for higher-grade nuclear enrichment – was a significant step toward closing the books on Saddam’s nuclear legacy. It also brought relief to U.S. and Iraqi authorities who had worried the cache would reach insurgents or smugglers crossing to Iran to aid its nuclear ambitions.
