Have you been watching the news? After 18 years, The body of the first pilot shot down in the first Gulf War has been recovered. No one knew his fate since Jan. 17, 1991.1 Turns out some Bedouins had "respectfully buried" Captain Michael Scott Speicher. His remains will be returned to his family shortly.
According to the pictures on the news, the wreckage of his jet is on top of the ground and completely visible; specially from the air.
So here's my question. If we can't find one of our own jets sitting on top of the ground for 18 years, and then only with help from some nomadic goat herder, what the hell makes ANYBODY think that we've searched the entire country thoroughly enough to be certain that a raving maniac who HAD and USED weapons of mass destruction didn't hide them somewhere where we couldn't find them?
The entire country is basically one big sandbox. During Desert Storm, Iraqi solders popped up out of bunkers that our guys didn't see until there was an enemy soldier 3 feet in front of them trying to surrender. Even Saddam Hussein himself was squirelled away in a hole in the ground.2,3
Storage units have been found with sarin and mustard gas.4 Anybody wanna bet their chromosomes that there's really no nukes, or at least some uranium hidden away somewhere? I sure don't.
Anyway, that's my opinion. What's yours?

I think this really just points out that 'military intelligence' truly is an oxymoron. The dang jet was litterally sitting on a mound!
