UK Report: African Uranium Intel Justified, So Screw You
Instapundit links to this Financial Times story about the African uranium hubub. The report will be released next week but the advance word is a big middle finger to the Moore/Dowd/Naderites who have adopted the belief the Bush Lied with a religious fervor.
A UK government inquiry into the intelligence used to justify the war in Iraq is expected to conclude that Britain's spies were correct to say that Saddam Hussein's regime sought to buy uranium from Niger.... The Financial Times revealed last week that a key part of the UK's intelligence on the uranium came from a European intelligence service that undertook a three-year surveillance of an alleged clandestine uranium-smuggling operation of which Iraq was a part.The report could certainly be wrong. But the point is that this is complex stuff and answers are not so cut and dry as the simple-minded critics would like them to be. The Iraq/Niger uranium claim appears to be reasonable and not at all fabricated.
I'm holding my breath waiting for the Bush Lied crowd to address this.
