But… wait… I’m confused…

“Saddam Hussein’s cousin Ali Hassan al-Majid, who was hanged Monday, ordered the infamous poison gas attack on the northern Iraqi Kurdish village of Halabja in 1988 that killed 5,000 people and earned him the chilling moniker ‘Chemical Ali.’…”

“…Al-Majid was also linked to crackdowns on Shiites in southern Iraq, including the bloody suppression of their 1991 uprising, which also involved the use of poisonous gas.”

Wouldn’t this be the weapons of mass destruction that critics of the Iraq war said they didn’t have?  Weapons of mass destruction that they refused to provide any proof of disposing of?  The same regime that hampered efforts by the UN to verify their existance (or lack thereof)?
