SOTU 16 words proven true (again)

Much of the Wilson/Plame fuss about "Bush lied" related to the 16 words in the State of the Union address which said that Iraq had sought uranium in Africa. Never mind that this was based on British Intelligence that the Butler Commission found was sound, Wilson and his Dem-media friends insisted this was a false charge. The British claim related to the Congo, and we now have sound evidence (from the BBC no less) that it was, in fact, very good intelligence, indeed.
An international network set up to illegally use uranium mined in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) has reportedly been dismantled.

Scientific Research Minister Sylvanus Mushi said DRC's top nuclear official and a colleague were being questioned in connection with the case.

The official, Fortunat Lumu, and the colleague were arrested on Tuesday.

The move comes amid reports that a large quantity of uranium has gone missing in recent years in DRC.
