And Now, The Rest of the Story

Remember the Iraqi scientist with the parts for an uranium enrichment centrifuge buried in his backyard? Something else was buried, namely the story of the scientist's efforts since May 2002 to find someone who would listen:

"It turns out that Obeidi was trying to give up the goods almost from the moment US troops stormed into Baghdad. But our operation was so poorly run that we ended up making the guy into some sort of friggin' nuclear Diogenes, practically wandering the streets trying to find one competent person to turn himself in to. "

Go read the rest of this amazingly f'ed up story at J. M. Marshall's Talking Points Memo. See also this CNN story.
