Still no WMDs

“So where are they? In case we forget, distracted by the thought of thousands of dead Iraqi civilians, looted museums and gathering political chaos, the proclaimed purpose of this war, vainly pursued by Britain and the US through the United Nations, was to disarm Saddam Hussein and to destroy weapons of mass destruction deemed a menace to the entire world.

But, Mr Blair, where are they? A month has passed since American and British troops entered Iraq, more than a week since the fall of Baghdad. But thus far not even a sniff. Not a drum of VX or mustard gas, not a phial of botulin or anthrax, not a shred of evidence that Iraq was assembling a nuclear weapons programme.” — Independent

It seems Scott Ritter was right all along, when he said that almost all of Iraq’s WMDs were destroyed back when he was part of the U.N. inspection team. Hans Blix is ready to go back in with his team, to finish the work they started before the war, but, of course, the U.S. doesn’t want him there.
