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.

"How did the world miss all of this? Why couldn't they see what was happening here?"

How and why, indeed?

So much for the "inspections work" monkeys.

Sorry folks, another "red herring", another false alarm. This is clearly an innocent, civilian, non- weapons related, "Nuclear Insecticide Development Complex". This explains why the UN inspectors passed it by. They know what they are doing! I mean, I am surprised at you all! Doubting their competence, capacity for deduction, integrity and honesty like this! You should be ashamed!

"French engineers spent a fortune pumping water from the foundation area, only to see buildings crumble when the water was removed".

I see French engineers are as good as French soldiers.

"Inspector Blix and that Baby Blue Marine Ritter should be sent forthwith to this site, put in a cage and see how long it takes for them to stop chirping."

Mike Farrell and his cronies should join Blix and Ritter.

The mayor of this high-tech city is, for now, Capt. John Seegar, a combat engineer commander from Houston, Tx.

Another Texan taking charge.

Not anymore, now the link goes to the story that the Marines took Baghdad, nothing about the nuclear site.
