What the......?

Wizbang reports that Koffi & Co. are ticked off with the US because we destroyed or allowed to be removed from Iraq machinery capable of making WMD..... you know, the stuff that they didn't have.

So it's really a two-fer: smack Amerika for invading Iraq over its WMD program by claiming it doesn't exist, and then smack Amerika again for removing Iraq's WMD capabilities!

Got that straight? Errr, didn't think so.

It's a little more, ahem, nuanced than that.
I wrote about it back in April: 2004/04/iraqi_nuclear_s.html
and since then have learnt a little more.
The WMD equipment that is turning up in scrap yards is the stuff the UN inspectors had found and tagged in the years before the war. What's got people pissed off is that it's being exported and sold (I think a scrap yard is a great place to put it, it'll simply be melted down) not the fact that it exists....everyone already knew that.
