SOUTH OF BAGHDAD In a valley sculpted by man, between the palms and roses, lies a vast marble and steel city known as Al-Tuwaitha.

In the suburbs about 18 miles south of the capital's suburbs, this city comprises nearly 100 buildings workshops, laboratories, cooling towers, nuclear reactors, libraries and barracks that belong to the Iraqi Atomic Energy Commission.

You underestimate what we Civ E's. are capable of.

That was a joke son. I am an engineer with some CE training and experience, and remember well how BART was built under San Francisco with very similar hydrostatic conditions.

My guess is that people in the know want to preserve "chain of custody". They have also warned the press against premature conclusions. Unless they find actual evidence of weapons design or construction, with international observers present, it'll be blown off by the Left.

If we find Saddam alive, shoving him in one of those storage buldings and closing the door will be a good way to say goodbye.

We should save those rooms for Saddam, his thugs and his supporters here in America and around the world.

"Second, tell me again why Iraq, with #2 oil reserves on the planet, needs a nuclear reactor? "

because they signed the Kyoto protocol & have to cut down on CO2 emmissions.........

Christ is viewed as a prophet of Islam in the Muslim world, second only to Mohammed himself.

This is why Christians are "People of the Book" in Islam.

Most of Christ's life is viewed through the same light to Christians and Muslims (well, educated tolerant muslim clerics -- a rare breed), believing in the miracles of Christ and the Virgin Birth. The Passion is where things start to differ.

Abraham and Moses are also "Prophets of Islam", which is why Jews are also "People of the Book".

FNC just interviewed Prine live from Iraq -- the readings are showing weapons-grade plutonium, but have to be confirmed. Prine also said that he had spoken to former UN inspectors about the site since the Marines found it, and none of them were aware of the underground facility, which contradicts the Washington Post ho-hum article I posted on this thread. The Compost says that the IAEA knew all about low-grade(?) radioactive materials "in bunkers."

FR beats not only the major news outlets, but evidently the Pentagon! I read this article on FR last night and this morning FOX "Breaks" the news with the reporter who wrote the story. FOX did say they had picked it up on the internet!
