Looting of Nuclear Waste Sites in Iraq: Bush's Deception About WMD and How His Incompetence in Iraq Exposes Us to Increased Risk of Terrorist "Dirty Bombs"

Anyone who still wants to believe Saddam Hussein had any WMD must now come to the conclusion that the weapons of mass destruction have all been looted, along with Iraq's hospitals, museums, libraries, garbage trucks, and nuclear waste dumps.
Because of the nuclear material stolen from these latter sites alone, the question whether Iraq had any weapons of mass destruction before the war, in quantitative terms at least, may now be moot. If professional gangs like those who looted the museums (and who might know how to loot radioactive wastes without poisoning themselves) were involved, then the overriding net effect of Bush's war as it relates to WMDs in the hands of terrorists will be that the material for a dirty bomb will now be on the black market in far greater quantities than ever before. Or we may just never know.
Not only has the Coalition done no better a job at finding WMDs than than the much maligned Hans Blix, but in fact through this entire, ridiculous, politically-motivated blunder of a war, they have probably managed to increase dramatically our vulnerability to terrorists using weapons of mass destruction.
Thank you Mr. Bush,
