>Bush's Top WMD Inspector David Kay is NOT a scientist of any kind< David Kay was NOT the only WMD inspector who was NOT a scientist!! None of the “famous” heads of UNSCOM was a scientist: Not Rolf Ekeus, nor Richard Butler nor Hans Blix... Neither was Scott Ritter a scientist. Those are the ones we know of. How many of the rest are scientists?? I did not notice in the article any mention of the role David Kay played in creating the crisis over the Ministry of Agriculture in 1992. At that time, Kay insisted on inspecting that Ministry, accusing Iraq of hiding documents of its weapons programs in that Ministry. Iraq refused, and Kay brought his “herd” of inspectors and camped in front of the Ministry, to prevent Iraq of smuggling these documents out. And the media gave him the coverage he needed.. Kay was eventually allowed to enter and inspect the Ministry, but the same attention was not given by the media to the fact that nothing was found there.. Rolf Ekeus did the same thing. He accused Iraq of replacing the Russian made motors for the Scuds with ones locally made, destroying the replacements and keeping the originals. Iraq denied that and was ready to submit the destroyed motors, retrieved from their locations, to inspections. At that, Ekeus insisted that the motors be inspected in the US, which Iraq refused, and wanted Russia, the manufacturer of those motors to inspect them. Ekeus rejected that. The stalemate was solved by letting the inspections be carried out by a Swiss company. The media again did not report the finding: that those missile motors were the original ones. Ekeus lied, but offered no apology. Ritter did the same with the Presidential Palaces, and we know the story. But I guess no one wants Ritter to be criticized, now that he has repented... When one sees that, and the whole campaign of fabrication and lies by the US and UK, one can not help wonder, how does a society produce so many liars?? It seems that if you are considered a “good guy”, its OK to lie... Best HZ __________________________________ Do you Yahoo!? Yahoo!
