Smoking Gun, Part 1,392

Proof concerning the WMD "smoking gun" keeps emerging continually, notwithstanding the mantra of "no evidence". Today's NYT ran a major "smoking gun" piece by Judith Miller under the heading, "Illicit Arms Kept Till Eve of War, an Iraqi Scientist Is Said to Assert". The article notes, inter alia:

A scientist who claims to have worked in Iraq's chemical weapons program for more than a decade has told an American military team that Iraq destroyed chemical weapons and biological warfare equipment only days before the war began, members of the team said.

They said the scientist led Americans to a supply of material that proved to be the building blocks of illegal weapons, which he claimed to have buried as evidence of Iraq's illicit weapons programs.

The scientist also told American weapons experts that Iraq had secretly sent unconventional weapons and technology to Syria, starting in the mid-1990's, and that more recently Iraq was cooperating with Al Qaeda, the military officials said.
As many observers have opined, once Saddam's scientists start talking, the "smoking guns" will emerge by the dozen.
