Ummm...but that's irrelevant: Some
senile senior Democrats are accusing the Central Intellegence Agency of sabotaging the inspections and hiding weapons details with regard to Iraq. Excuse me, but according to U.N. Security Council Resolution 1441, Saddam Hussein is supposed to reveal all of this stuff to the U.N. -- there is nowhere in 1441 a requirement that the U.S. government divulge any information it has on whether or not Saddam may be lying.
Of course, the U.S. has said -- repeatedly -- that Saddam's hiding stuff and nobody in France or Germany believes us! Now some Democrats apparently want us to give classified information to weapons inspectors who couldn't keep a secret if it was surgically implanted in them?
It's obvious that the level of literacy in France, Germany and some portions of the Democratic caucus is alarmingly high. Today's assignment is reading comprehension 101. Read this and locate the paragraph(s) which require U.S. intelligence agencies to provide material to U.N. inspectors.
As Bush administration officials have said before: this inspection job could be done with one or two inspectors if Iraq really wanted to come clean.
