That's pretty much it.

The author seems oblivious to the fact that a quick Google will yield plenty of differing opinions on the subject at hand.

It kind of reminds me of when Noam Chomsky says stuff like "it is obvious that the United States is a leading terrorist state."

Ok, I'll bite.

U.S. supplied the kinds of germs Iraq later used for biological weapons
By MATT KELLEY

WASHINGTON (AP) - Iraq's bioweapons program that President George W. Bush wants to eradicate got its start with help from Uncle Sam two decades ago, according to government records getting new scrutiny in light of the discussion of war against Iraq.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention sent samples directly to several Iraqi sites that United Nations weapons inspectors determined were part of Saddam Hussein's biological weapons program, CDC and congressional records from the early 1990s show. Iraq had ordered the samples, claiming it needed them for legitimate medical research.

<snip>

-----------------

So were Iraq's claims that they wanted the anthrax for medical research credible at the time? I don't know. Possibly not, though the fact that it was the CDC that sent the anthrax and not the Pentagon lends credence to the theory that it was medical research anthrax, not weaponized anthrax.

Anyway, I think I've made my point that when discussing a shocking and controversial piece of information, referencing a search engine is not a substitute for an argument.

hmmm....cow the email is interesting. i think my sister was the one talking to me about Michael Moore's Old White Men book in which he talks about ken lay's ties to Bushie...Moore wrote that chapter way before enron went under.

if you think the government is serving you, think again. that is of course unless you have lots of money and live in texas.

I think my extensive posting here is going to make the FBI, CIA and VP Dickie a little suspicious so I better stop now while I'm ahead.

Ah, there you go with your subtle little Bush Administration/Third Reich comparisons, deathbear. Perhaps you should take a closer look at Baghdad if you really want to see similarities.

little steps my friend. Germany was changed into a facist state so slowly that nobody noticed. I wouldn't get too smug if I were you.

Hello Cow of the Seas / U2Alabama / Blacksword

if you have the time and live near LA go and visit Wiesenthal's "Museum of tolerance" for this.

oh bama, i agree that iraq has a terrible government in place. but since the western world is expected to lead by example, then maybe we SHOULD lead by example.

and how come noones argueing the main article yet?

Can I remind everyone to watch the Third Reich comparisons, please? I think we've established that we all need to tread carefully when those allusions start coming up.
