Subject: RE: BS: WMDs WERE found in Iraq!
Ah Sugarfoot, don't you read anything at all??

Tell me the period covered by that report by UNMOVIC? Did you notice it at all? 1st March to 31st May 2004. A report by UNMOVIC to the United Nations regarding the work being carried out in Iraq by the Iraq Survey Group, which had nothing whatsoever to do with UNSCOM; UNMOVIC or indeed the United Nations.

That being the case, please tell me at what point is my statement about UNSCOM and UNMOVIC not being in Iraq to search for and find WMD incorrect?

After all according to the directions detailed in UNSCR 687 and 1441 Saddam Hussein and Ba'athist Regime in Iraq were supposed to have:

1. Made a full and frank declaration and account of the status of their WMD programmes.

2. Taken the UNMOVIC Inpectors to the sites and locations, where WMD were stored, manufactured or disposed of

3. Provide UNMOVIC Inpectors with verifiable documentary evidence of the destruction of any WMD agents or weapons.

4. Provide answers accounting for any anomalies or points of clarification raised by UNMOVIC Inspectors in the course of their work

Now had the Iraqi authorities complied with all of that there would be no need for UNMOVIC to play "hide-and-seek" would there??

"This means they were proactively seeking out WMDs. They went to Iraq to find WMD's - The Iraq Survey Group DID - UNSCOM & UNMOVIC DID NOT - get it right Sugarfoot lad.

Ask yourself the reason why The Iraq Survey Group had to look and search - because when they started their work, after the invasion there were NO IRAQI AUTHORITIES IN PLACE TO CO-OPERATE WITH - you muppet, pay attention to detail, it sometimes helps when putting an argument together.
