    Search for Banned Weapons in Iraq Has Ended- WPost

    Wed Jan 12, 2005 12:59 AM ET

    WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The search for weapons of mass destruction in Iraq ended last month, nearly two years after President Bush sent troops to disarm Saddam Hussein, The Washington Post reported on Wednesday.
    Officials who served with the group charged with hunting banned weapons said the violence in Iraq, coupled with a lack of new information, led them to fold up the effort shortly before Christmas, the newspaper reported.

    Charles Duelfer, the CIA special adviser who led the hunt, has returned home, and analysts serving in his Iraq Survey Group (ISG) have returned to CIA headquarters in Virginia, the report said, citing unnamed intelligence officials.

    The Post said the findings of an interim report that Duelfer submitted to Congress in September will stand as the ISG's final conclusions, according to a senior intelligence official.

    The report concluded that Iraq had no stockpiles of biological and chemical weapons and its nuclear program had decayed before last year's U.S.-led invasion, in findings contrary to prewar assertions of the Bush administration.

    Speaking on condition of anonymity, another U.S. intelligence official confirmed that Duelfer was back in Washington, but disputed that the weapons hunt was over.

    "This isn't the kind of thing that stops, the search continues," the official told Reuters. "If new information comes in, obviously that would be looked at."

    The Washington Post reported that the White House had been reluctant to call off the hunt, holding out the possibility that weapons had been shipped out of Iraq before the war or well hidden inside the country.

    Bush, who subsequently said that he was "right to take action" in Iraq, had cited a growing threat from Saddam's weapons of mass destruction as one of the main reasons for overthrowing the Iraqi president.

    Sounds about right. I mean, he couldn't stop it before the election, could he? That'd be tantamount to admitting he was wrong! Oh the horror!

    i think most people knew this a long time ago.

    the government always takes a little while to catch up to common knowledge.

    less catching up to common knowledge, more letting on it knows we know and it is safer to say nothing. For are we told somethings a big deal we act like its a big deal but things that are hush hush we are less apt to be outraged at.

    From what i hear the wmd were found upon removing Saddams socks three months of hole living can really amp up the foot odor.

    whats really funny is that most of you guys on here voted for a guy who voted for the war with his liberal friends in congress. clinton even wanted to invade. then as soon as things start looking like a war during a war, everyone changes their stance.

    all I can say about this quote is duh.
    I mean damn...if someone steals your bike...you're gonna rome around the neighborhood and hit up the pawn shops and what not for a few weeks. After that...you quit actively looking...but obviously you'd check out any leads if you heard anything.

    kinda funny the letting it go...but not really thing.

    maybe Geraldo hid them in Al Capone's vault.
