I have been keeping up with the recent “Exclusive Hussein Uranium News” from TerryFrank.net and I thought it would be a good time to weigh in after more details have surfaced with regards to Frank’s source. If you haven’t been following this story let me get you up to speed with these links. It all started with this post claiming documents that proved Saddam had over 1 million pounds of Uranium. And then there was this follow up post. Next was her appearance on Tennessee This Week and finally her most recent post which can be read here.
If I cared about how much, if any, Uranium Saddam had in Iraq (which I don’t) I would have a few questions for Terry. The first would be why bring this about through your blog as opposed to traditional media? If you really only cared about bringing this to the attention of the public, why would you not contact the Knox News Sentinel or WBIR and report your findings through traditional media which has a much broader audience then your blog.
My next question would be, why would you dedicate an entire post to calling another person rude and incompetent simply because he questioned the authenticity of your claims, even though you provided no supporting evidence? My thought is that any person who would be willing to accept your claim without requesting further evidence would be the incompetent person.
Now for those who don’t believe Frank’s claims I would only suggest that we do live in the Oak Ridge area and after hearing the interview on Tennessee This Week it sounds as though this information is available due to some training that has taken place, which was intended to help safely remove the material from Iraq. This seems like a very plausible story since folks in Oak Ridge would be very familiar with how to handle Uranium.
Terry’s claims are believable but you won’t find me repeating them unless I saw the documents first hand. Even if the claims are true it seems like a mute point this late in the game.
