    psst, don't tell Richard Clarke:

    http://www.newsmax.com/newsfront/iraq_yellowcake_mission/2008/07/05/110184.html

    The last major remnant of Saddam Hussein's nuclear program -- a huge stockpile of concentrated natural uranium -- reached a Canadian port Saturday to complete a secret U.S. operation that included a two-week airlift from Baghdad and a ship voyage crossing two oceans.


    The removal of 550 metric tons of "yellowcake" -- the seed material for higher-grade nuclear enrichment _ was a significant step toward closing the books on Saddam's nuclear legacy. It also brought relief to U.S. and Iraqi authorities who had worried the cache would reach insurgents or smugglers crossing to Iran to aid its nuclear ambitions.

    Guess it is no longer a secret, the people from NEWSMAX should be sent to Guantanamo along with the rest of the traitors so they can await their trial for giving up intelligence secrets..

    OTOH, need to keep my fave assclowns around as who else can inflame and lie as well as they can.. NEWSMAX.. come on now..:rofl::rofl::rofl:

    Anyone who posts anything from NEWSMAX should be banned..

    Wow, FTW! THanks for the news! You think Clark (and the rest of the informed world) might have already known about this stash? What a rumpswab! You're so 1980's.

    From the AP version of the "story":

    ..."Tuwaitha and an adjacent research facility were well known for decades as the centerpiece of Saddam's nuclear efforts.

    Israeli warplanes bombed a reactor project at the site in 1981. Later, U.N. inspectors documented and safeguarded the yellowcake, which had been stored in aging drums and containers since before the 1991 Gulf War. There was no evidence of any yellowcake dating from after 1991, the official said...."

    Wow, that's a lot of yellow cake. I wonder if it had vanilla, or chocolate frosting. :D

    You're right, we do need to stop American companies from making food that is bad for us. I agree with you there.
