WMDs Announced (Not “Discovered”) in Libya
If we couldn't check on Libya, how can we check on Iran?

The news comes from the new government. Via Moscow, ahem.
Remember that the Libyans were said to have abandoned their nuclear and chemical weapons programs, and we were said to have carried out inspections to make sure that had happened. So if this news checks out, it’s a blow to “inspections regimes,” and it raises the question if we can EVER be confident that such programs have ever been dismantled.
If we couldn’t be right about Libya, how could anyone be confident that the Iranians had abandoned their nukes?
Not that they’re about to…or even really talk about it.
