Where are the WMDs? Maybe they’re in Europe (pt.2)

Here’s an eye-brow raising report. According to an UN briefing, there is credible evidence that Hussein had key installations packed up and shipped out before and during the Iraq War.

Money quote:

The briefing contained satellite photographs that demonstrated the speed with which Saddam dismantled his missile and WMD sites before and during the war. Council members were shown photographs of a ballistic missile site outside Baghdad in May 2003, and then saw a satellite image of the same location in February 2004, in which facilities had disappeared.

Once again we seem to have evidence that Saddam had the ability to make entire facilities disappear. I blogged about this once before. If this turns out to be true, and there doesn’t seem to be any evidence to think otherwise, then there is not only more reason to believe Saddam did indeed have a WMD program but also that it seems the parts of this program have been scattered and are out of our control. Fortunately it seems most of the equipment was scrapped out, but the idea of Al-Samoud engines popping up in Jordan isn’t comforting.

I’ve blogged about the Weapons of Mysterious Disappearance here, here, and here. You can also just do a search for WMD.
