Pentagon admits: Iraqi Trailers Said to Make Hydrogen, Not Biological Arms: "Engineering experts from the Defense Intelligence Agency have come to believe that the most likely use for two mysterious trailers found in Iraq was to produce hydrogen for weather balloons rather than to make biological weapons, government officials say."

We all already knew that the trailers were to produce hydrogen, but this high level admission is another crushing blow to the credibility of the Bush administration and the neo-conservative cabal, comparable to the exposure of the Niger uranium lie. The fact that an exposure and admission such as this achieves mainstream corparate media coverage is also significant. It has been said that Nixon's crimes would never have been checked except that important elements of the US corporate and political elite became concerned he was dangerous and off the rails, and I believe a similar problem is now confronting the extremist Bush administration.
