WMD Case Closed

The House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence is studying 12 hours of audio recordings between Saddam Hussein and his top advisers that may provide clues to the whereabouts of Iraq's weapons of mass destruction.
"I still believe there are key individuals who have not been debriefed and there are key sites that have never been investigated. I know there are 35,000 boxes of documents that have never been translated. I am frustrated," Mr. Hoekstra said.
"I am trying to find out if our postwar intelligence was as bad as our pre-war intelligence, " Mr. Hoekstra said.

Interesting. But didn't Sean Penn definitively answer this question already?

Update, 2/15: Jack Kelly summarizes the evidence to date that Saddam sent his WMD to Syria.

Perhaps related: Jordan, Syria's neighbor, sentenced 11 terrorists, including Syrians, over their attempted chemical weapon attack. No word on where they got the chemicals (and no journalistic interest, either). "After the sentencing, the convicted men turned on one of the acquitted, a Syrian, and accused him of being an informer."

Update, 2/16: A new blog tracks updates: PJ's WMD Files.

Update, 3/14: Saddam Had WMD: The Missing Dots:

President Bush has ordered the vast quantity of documents and tapes captured by U.S. forces in Iraq to be made public. Based on what has been revealed already, a lot of people owe him an apology.

...President Bush has ordered the release for public analysis of more than 3,000 hours of audiotapes of Saddam Hussein

... in the 12 hours of tapes revealed so far is documentation that Saddam had active WMD programs and conspired to deceive weapons inspectors, hiding them and then spiriting them out of the country with Russian help.

In short, they are a damning indictment of the "Bush lied" crowd and a total justification for Operation Iraqi Freedom.

The recordings released so far show how Saddam was hiding his WMD from weapons inspectors. They also show the Iraqi dictator discussing previously unknown plans for enriching uranium.

bo-sorry if I upset you with a disputed post. This "Jesus" argument I have with Sparkles Repub friends sometimes, not that it ever gets anywhere. I feel as if you are the stable dad I nver had sometimes and I'm not even sure if you are older than me.

Hope you and bride of S. and hound of S. are keeping well innit.
