Saddam Only Had 1.2 Million Pounds Of Yellowcake
The AP article states "U.N. inspectors documented and safeguarded the
yellowcake, which had been stored in aging drums and containers since before the
1991 Gulf War. There was no evidence of any yellowcake dating from after 1991,
the official said."
While this 550 tons of yellowcake was news to some of us, it was not
news to Douglas Hanson or Rick Moran at American Thinker.
As Douglas Hanson asked in 2004:
"Why did the IAEA allow Iraq to retain such massive amounts of nuclear
material, when its three nuclear facilities had been destroyed over 12 years
ago, and have never been repaired?"
In another AT piece , he went on to say
"How many nuclear weapons can you build [with 500 tons of
yellowcake]? The answer is 142."
