I believe U.S. Intelligence has a very good apprasial of what Iraq has and at least some of where their WMD are stored.
I don't doubt that the CIA has had operatives and paid informants within Iraq for many years.
Former high ranking military personnel and the head of Iraq's nuclear program have reloacted to the west and given detailed information - even on TV
U.S. spy satellites pass over Iraq with such frequent regularity and the predator, both offer up to the minute images.
I doubt Mr. Bush would commit to such a massive military buildup, if he did not have solid proof of what Saddam's hiding. In the past the U.S. has
been reluctant to release details of it's intelligence and I'm inclined to believe that's because it would compromise the sources of our
information (possibly high ranking Iraqi military and techonlogy personnel). We can all assume how Saddam would react to any published details of his
best kept secrets, be able to figure out where his security leaks are, and kill those people & their families.
We're holding our cards close to our chest and I believe that's how it should be. Military intelligence should be confidential to maintain
Just my own thoughts on this matter,
