Agree, not a nuclear explosion. A very impressive conventional ordinance explosion IMO> Even the Davy Crockett, had it been used, would have
produced measurable radiation, and that, to me, is the deciding factor in this story. The U.S. and allied forces were LOOKING for WMD. It would
have been phenomenally foolish to introduce a radioactive weapon. Had they been able to find a quantifiable reading of even background radioisotopes
[not radionucleides or Radon Daughters] that would've been strong evidence toward the WMD assertation. I think many mistakes were made before,
during, after the Iraq war, but cannot imagine such a colossally stupid manuver as introducing a radiative substance to Iraq. Nobody is that dumb.
To their credit, it would've been a simple matter to "hide" fissionable material in Iraq with signatures that pointed to, say, Russian or Pakistani
material. That was not done.
