US removes 1.8 tons of enriched uranium from Iraq

Wait a minute, I thought the liberals said that Sadam didn't have the materials needed to build a nuclear much less a dirty bomb. What else would you use 1.8 TONS on enriched Uranium for?

BAGHDAD - Iraq's interim government confirmed Thursday the United States has removed radioactive material from Iraq, saying ousted dictator Saddam Hussein could have used it to develop nuclear weapons.
U.S. and U.N. officials said Wednesday Washington had transported 1.8 tons of enriched uranium out of Iraq for safekeeping more than a year after looters stole it from a U.N.-sealed facility left unguarded by U.S. troops.
Iraq's interim Prime Minister Iyad Allawi said the uranium and about 1,000 highly radioactive items from the former Iraqi nuclear research facility had been taken to the United States.
