* one thing i've been meaning to write about, given the dodgy stories about aluminium tubes, mobile weapons labs, nigeranium etc, is the other 'plank' to the iraq story - i.e. the Unmanned Aerial Vehicles. I had presumed that something dodgy was involved in that part of the story as well and I'd been meaning to take a closer look.
Am watching the Senate Dem Hearings on Iraq - and Larry Wilkerson provides the details. Here's what happened. Saddam bought some mapping software - which had no connection with anything nefarious. The company that sells the maps simply offered to throw in the maps of the East Coast of the US for free. Apparently that's the entirety of the story. How bout that?
