    Ex-U.S. Arms Hunter Kay Says No Stockpiles in Iraq


    WASHINGTON (Reuters) - David Kay, who stepped down as leader of the U.S. hunt for weapons of mass destruction, said on Friday he does not believe there were any large stockpiles of chemical and biological weapons in Iraq (news - web sites).


    "I don't think they existed," Kay told Reuters in a telephone interview. "What everyone was talking about is stockpiles produced after the end of the last (1991) Gulf War (news - web sites) and I don't think there was a large-scale production program in the '90s," he said.


    Kay said he believes most of what is going to be found in the search for weapons of mass destruction in Iraq has been found and that the hunt will become more difficult once America turns over governing the country to the Iraqis.


    The United States went to war against Baghdad last year citing a threat from Iraq's weapons of mass destruction. No actual banned arms have been found.

    Although there aren't any WMDs, at least there are dozens of weapons programs, or at least thats what Bush thinks the arcade game "Asteroids" is that they found in Iraq.

    There are no weapons of mass destruction because there never WERE any. The only thing that ever existed was a threat to Israel. That's why we went to war.

    Then there was the issue of the worlds second largest proven oil reserves. Also, radical elements in Saudi Arabia, and other Arab states where growing increasingly vocal about the presence of US troops on Saudi soil. Problem solved, thay're all in Iraq now.

    Aw cummon jim! That was the initial and overarching reason Dubbyuh gave for going to war in Iraq. Now we know it was all a lie. Which, begs the question of "What else has this treacherous little sot lied about?"
