Which points to the question of the WMD as a possible motive for the US
to "neutralize" the UN -- if they were trying to plant WMD or evidence,
and the UN staff found out. There is enough to generate a dozen
conspiracy theories -- and looking at what the US has done so far, and
the motivations, one can't dismiss such theories out of hand.

The story about WMD which seems most likely to me is that Saddam had them
destroyed years ago but kept up the pretense of having them as a
deterrence, leading to the secrecy the inspectors found, and ultimately
to many supporting the invasion. Would it not be ironic if Bush's secrecy
fueled the suspicion and opposition which brings him down?! But there is
already a stong case for deception about DU.
