    Just heard today on the news that Iraq gets 48 hrs notice of the flights and a detail of the flight plan. Hardly cause for enthusiam from the pro-inspection crowd. More evidence that the inspection path is one of futility.

    I had not heard that. What the fuck kind of compliance is that? What a complete and total joke. Fuck the UN for putting up with demands from Iraq on when we can fly planes over to make sure they are in compliance with resolutions.

    Before I go bonkers on that I should ask, where did you get that info?

    Fox news of course. Do you think CNN or the nightly puppet-heads would divulge that info?

    Yeah, saw that too. What a total crock of shit, talk about a toothless 1441. Waste of fuel..........
    Edit to include that this news was on the local stations as well as Fox (rightwing)News (conspiracy)Channel. Everyone probably picked it from the wire.

    Here we go, courtesy of NE169 at DiamondDavidLeeRoth.com:

    By John Daniszewski
    Tribune newspapers: Los Angeles Times
    Published February 18, 2003

    BAGHDAD -- The first of the U-2 spy plane flights long demanded by the United Nations to aid weapons inspectors in Iraq took place Monday, the Foreign Ministry announced, in what appeared to be the latest sign that Baghdad wishes to appear more cooperative.

    "At 11:55 a.m., a U-2 surveillance plane entered Iraqi airspace and reconnoitered several areas of Iraq and left Iraqi airspace at 4:15 p.m.," the ministry said in a statement. "The reconnaissance operation lasted 4 hours and 20 minutes."

    Iraq agreed last week to allow U-2 flights in the wake of a visit to the country by chief UN weapons inspectors Hans Blix and Mohammed ElBaradei. The two had pressed Iraqi authorities to be more cooperative or risk a negative report on their compliance to the UN Security Council that could spell war with the United States.

    They argued that surveillance by the high-flying aircraft over targeted areas could help verify or disprove U.S. claims that Iraq has been moving banned weapons and materials from place to place to elude detection by inspectors.

    As late as Sunday, Baghdad was insisting on several conditions for the U-2 flights that UN officials had considered unacceptable. In addition to wanting 48 hours notice of flights, they asked for advance details of the flight plan, including route, speed and altitude and the call sign of U-2 flights.

    "Iraq wants to know where the U-2 is," one diplomatic source said Sunday. In light of that demand, "U-2 flights are by no means certain," he said.

    It was not immediately clear Monday how exactly those issues were resolved. The Foreign Ministry statement did not indicate what parts of Iraq were covered by the U-2 flight path.

    The UN inspectors' spokesman in Baghdad, Hiro Ueki, said late Monday that he could not confirm that a U-2 flight had taken place. However, he did say that UN headquarters earlier had provided Iraq with a "window" of time when a flight could take place.

    "We gave them prior notification about the window," he said. "And we anticipated that it would fly."

    For months, Iraqi officials resisted the U-2 flights, alleging that Iraq could not ensure their safety while the U.S. and British planes are conducting air patrols to enforce "no-fly" zones in northern and southern Iraq. Baghdad often fires on those patrols with anti-aircraft guns and missiles.

    Although Blix and ElBaradei have insisted that Iraq give ground on the U-2 issue and two other procedural points--private interviews with Iraqi scientists and legislation passed Friday banning weapons of mass destruction--both say their real bottom line is "substantive" information from Iraq about its weapons programs.

    here is one of the sources.

    "the resumption of U-2 flights on Monday signaled that Iraq's cooperation with the inspectors was improving. An American U-2 spy plane made its first flight over Iraq after the United Nations gave Iraq 48 hours notice"

    WTF?? [img]graemlins/wtf.gif[/img]

    from Webster's dictionary:

    Definition of spy :
    1 : one that spies: a : one who keeps secret watch on a person or thing to obtain information b : a person employed by one nation to secretly convey classified information of strategic importance to another nation; also : a person who conveys the trade secrets of one company to another

    If we are telling them the when & where of the U2 SPY Plane, wtf intelligence are we going to gather?? [img]graemlins/brickwall.gif[/img]

    Whether you agree with my politics or not, you have to agree that this info was tucked away while the anti-war crowd was heralding Iraq's cooperation and characterising it as a possible change of heart.

    Fucking A Right man, buried in the UN website so freaking deep it took a while to find it and it really wasn't where it should be. One would have to go searching for it specifically to get at the info. Down with the Hippies!
