No, Larry -- the U.S. insisted on looking it over first before giving it to other permanent members of the Security Council, which is only 5 nations (technically speaking, not the "UN" -- that implies the General Assembly). This was public news, I'm not making it up. Here's a post to an official US state department briefing on the issue: http://usinfo.state.gov/topical/pol/terror/02121208.htm [incidentally, for those who still think the rest of the world operates the way the US does, note that if this were a Canadian government document, the director of communications would not be interviewed by journalists as in this briefing record and Q&A session -- it would be the minister who would be interviewed].
Think, too, that it's in Iraq's best interests to cloud the issue, as it were, by showing this kind of "complication." Incidentally, I've also said that the U.S. won't invade Iraq when push comes to shove -- that while the U.S. administration may in fact be quite sincere in their concern about Iraq, their first priority was the mid-term elections. Now that the Republicans did better than many dared hope, the "need" for a "wag the dog" scenario is fading, and the doves are getting the upper hand. Two complete naval battle groups have started sailing *away* from the Middle East: http://www.nationalpost.com/search/site/story.asp?id=2B634666-9A17-4525-9558-1FA9C23496BB [EMAIL PROTECTED] wrote: > Marc Schindler: > > By now I'm sure all of you have heard of the material the > Iraqi government turned over to the Security Council.
