Russia tied to Iraq's missing arms - The Washington Times: Nation/Politics - October 27, 2004

Russian special forces troops moved many of Saddam Hussein's weapons and related goods out of Iraq and into Syria in the weeks before the March 2003 U.S. military operation, The Washington Times has learned.
John A. Shaw, the deputy undersecretary of defense for international technology security, said in an interview that he believes the Russian troops, working with Iraqi intelligence, 'almost certainly' removed the high-explosive material that went missing from the Al-Qaqaa facility, south of Baghdad.
'The Russians brought in, just before the war got started, a whole series of military units,' Mr. Shaw said. 'Their main job was to shred all evidence of any of the contractual arrangements they had with the Iraqis. The others were transportation units.'

Um what?! Wow, I thought the Russians were trying to screw us with the whole security council deal, but I don't think I really realized how much. I hope this isn't true.
