jamiroguy1 Posted January 2 Report Share Posted January 2 David Kay leaving empty handedBy Matthew RiemerYellowTimes.org Columnist (United States)(YellowTimes.org) â€“ The man the Bush administration put in charge of finding Iraq's weapons of mass destruction, David Kay, announced this week that he is stepping down from his post sometime early in 2004. Kay heads the Iraq Survey Group (ISG), which is currently scouring Iraq for signs of Saddam Hussein's weapons of mass destruction. The former U.N. weapons inspector cited the duration of the inspections as one of his reasons for leaving; Kay had originally believed that the entire procedure would be completed in six months time, putting the completion date around the first of the year. When evaluating the post-war inspections process in Iraq and the by now clichÃ© saga of the weapons of mass destruction story, it is instructive to look deeper and ask what other factors may be forcing David Kay to step down as the ISG head. Is Kay's departure a rolling back of the administration's focus on WMD as one of its primary points of vindication in its defense of its decision to go to war, especially now that President Bush has declared their existence irrelevant?Full Articlehttp://yellowtimes.org/article.php?sid=1717&mode=thread&order=0 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
