Good thing the IAEA is watching out for U.S. interests, because the Bush Administration certainly isn't:

'VIENNA (Reuters) - The U.N. nuclear watchdog is worried the U.S.-led war aimed at disarming Iraq may have unleashed a proliferation crisis if looters have sold equipment that can be used to make atomic weapons, Western diplomats said.'

'The International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), which monitored Saddam Hussein's nuclear sites before last year's Iraq war, said on Monday equipment and materials that could be used to make atomic weapons have been disappearing from Iraq but neither Baghdad nor Washington had noticed.'

'"If some of this stuff were to end up in Iran, some people would be very concerned," a diplomat close to the IAEA told Reuters. "The IAEA's big concern would be profiteering, people who would sell this stuff with no regard for who is buying it.". . . '


The looting that occured at the start of the war was the biggest tactical error made by the U.S. in Iraq. The looting armed the insurgency, and now the IEDs and other explosive devices killing Americans and Iraqis alike are demonstrating this fact on a daily basis. Certain civilian leaders in the Pentagon are responsible for the policy that allowed the looting to happend (we remember Rumsfeld brushed off the looting at the beginning of the war as unimportant). These leaders should be brought to account for negligently endangering U.S. troops. More from the article:


'. . . Satellite imagery shows entire buildings in Iraq that once housed high-precision equipment have been dismantled, IAEA chief Mohamed ElBaradei said in a letter to the U.N. Security Council.'

'British Foreign Secretary Jack Straw said he believed most of the removal of materials and equipment took place in the chaos that reigned shortly after the invasion last spring.'

'"It is not clear, but it appears, and I'm seeking more details after receipt of the IAEA report overnight, that most of the unauthorized removal took place in the immediate aftermath of the major conflict in March and April last year," Straw told parliament. . . .'
