    Thanks - actually, I consider myself very fortunate that I have the time and (admittedly amateur) ability to defend us. I just feel sorry for all the ones who don't have the time to do so.

Yellowcake also can be enriched for use in reactors and, at higher levels, nuclear weapons using sophisticated equipment.

    But the yellowcake had not been processed, and Iraq was decades away from having enough centrifuges in order to do so. If Iraq had really wanted nukes, they could have bought them more cheaply from Pakistan.
    The Dems believed it before there was even a Bush Administration.

    Please read this and stop the silliness. It's just a waste of space!

    Oh and the one report that will matter is from the Select committee. That's the investigation that is still on going.
    Exactly, and that is still ongoing. Trey Gowdy Captains Benghazi Investigation As The Anti-Issa

    The Grubers are jumping the gun more than just a little bit. How they can claim its over when there have been no significant witnesses called is a mystery.

    Did you stop reading at the word "True?"

    Here, I'll help for cart it over for ya:

    "All of the quotes listed above are substantially correct reproductions of statements made by various Democratic leaders regarding Iraqi leader Saddam Hussein's acquisition or possession of weapons of mass destruction. However, some of the quotes are truncated, and context is provided for none of them

    — several of these quotes were offered in the course of statements that clearly indicated the speaker was decidedly against unilateral military intervention in Iraq by the U.S. Moreover, several of the quotes offered antedate the four nights of airstrikes unleashed against Iraq by U.S. and British forces during Operation Desert Fox in December 1998, after which Secretary of Defense William S. Cohen and Gen. Henry H. Shelton (chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff) announced the action had been successful in "degrad[ing] Saddam Hussein's ability to deliver chemical, biological and nuclear weapons.

    That's why Gowdy went with the depositions. Notice how that has kept Cummings and his mouth shut. He should make sure to make a big deal about calling Hillary once she drops her hat into the Ring. Then she can explain why she never checked back on her people after she talked to Hicks.

    Wasn't even concerned if they made it out alive or not. Her actions show it for what it is. Nobody with common sense wants someone to not even care about their people to be leading this country.
