Aluminum Tubes

Aluminum Tubes

Judith Miller and Michael Gordon report in The New York Times that “Iraq has sought to buy thousands of specially designed aluminum tubes, which American officials believe were intended as components of centrifuges to enrich uranium. … The diameter, thickness and other technical specifications of the aluminum tubes had persuaded American intelligence experts that they were meant for Iraq’s nuclear program. …”9 This information was seriously doubted by experts inside the federal government; many believed it was inaccurate, and that the tubes were more likely intended for small artillery rockets.
