Iraq Documents

So, this is interesting: The US Government has claimed that they have no evidence that Iraq had weapons of mass destruction in Iraq at the time of invasion. They have also decided to allow us to view the information for ourselves. If you go to fmso.leavenworth.army.mil/products-docex.htm you can find a listing of a documents and audio tapes discovered by American intelligence. It's a ton of stuff to sort through, and almost everything is in Arabic, but this is the first time our Government has posted such sensative information so quickly after a major event. I can only assume that the political motivation is something like: "We already told everyone we were wrong, now if we show them why we are wrong, some of them will come to a different conclusion." And so far, this strategy is proving correct. Many right-wing analysts are already claiming that the documents incontrivertibly show that Hussein had WMD and planned on using them against America.

I don't know what the documents say, and I don't plan on reading them all, but I thought this was interesting, and figured I would post information about it.
