Just as I predicted. Saddam has taken pains to make his sure his nuclear weapons evidence is well-hidden. It is clearly in mothballs and squirreled away for the moment, until such time as the heat is off. Kudos to Blix and company for proving the critics wrong about the competence of the inspection team. It would appear that Western intelligence agencies have come up with a way to provide much-needed data to inspectors without jeopardizing the sources. I'm not surprised that it took the dim bulbs in the Bush administration this long to counter Saddam's strategy. It's the only strategy that makes sense from his viewpoint.
