A Ridiculous Notion…

Posted by Brian on March 16, 2005

From the NY Times:

In the weeks after Baghdad fell in April 2003, looters systematically dismantled and removed tons of machinery from Saddam Hussein’s most important weapons installations, including some with high-precision equipment capable of making parts for nuclear arms, a senior Iraqi official said this week in the government’s first extensive comments on the looting.

The Iraqi official, Sami al-Araji, the deputy minister of industry, said it appeared that a highly organized operation had pinpointed specific plants in search of valuable equipment, some of which could be used for both military and civilian applications, and carted the machinery away.

Nice try, Liberal Media. Everyone knows that the Iraq invasion was planned far well to allow such a catastrophic turn of events to happen right under our noses. I mean, really… do they expect us to believe that we went into the country under-manned and unprepared to deal with such contingencies? As Pauly on the Sopranos would say, “Get the fuck out of here!”
