Have you read that UN inspectors are back in Iraq? The US is allowing them to investigate the radioactive material that was taken from the Tuwaitha facility by looters. It was then dumped on the ground or otherwise unsafely discarded so that the containers it was stored in could be used for other things. We’re requiring that the inspectors be accompanied at all times by soldiers in order to make sure that they restrict their activities to only investigating that material in particular, and we’re limiting their stay to two weeks. Is it just me, or isn’t it exactly this sort of monitoring and hindrance of UN inspectors that got Iraq into hot water in the first place? I have to laugh at the fact that now that we’re in charge in Iraq we’re putting exactly the same sorts of restrictions on the inspectors that Saddam Hussein did.
