Saddam Hussein Was Stockpiling Couscous

By Rob Palowski

Washington DC - While no weapons of mass destruction have been found in Iraq, former top U.S. weapons inspector David Kay told members of the Senate that the discovery of large stockpiles of couscous may have been a sign the former Iraqi leader was preparing for war.

"The presence of huge stockpiles of food discovered in and around Iraqi military outposts is a definite indicator that Hussein was planning for some large-scale military offensive," Kay told the Senate Committee. The large stockpiles of food, known in military language as MMC or Mobilized Military Cuisine, are one sign of many that intelligence operatives use to cue in on large-scale operations.

``We have had many surprises,'' Kay told reporters after meeting in a closed session with the Senate Intelligence Committee. Kay testified that the discovery of the stockpiled MMC is part of a larger piece of the puzzle and provided telling insight into the plans of the deposed Iraqi leader. "Armies travel on their stomachs and whenever you see a lot of food mobilized around bases, you know that something is being planned." To the nature of such "plans", Kay had no comment.

The Bush administration has been criticized recently for the failure of military inspectors to find large stockpiles of weapons. The threat from such weapons was cited as the principal justification for invading Iraq and toppling Saddam last year.

Bush was swift to highlight the news of the MMC during a morning breakfast with a Washington D.C.-based women's group known as AHAG, or the Affiliation of Housewives Allied for Good. "I have been telling the American people we need to stay the course in Iraq. The stockpiled food is an indicator that Mr. Hussein had evil designs." Bush went on to cite a 1999 Clinton Administration Intelligence document that classified large food stockpiles as a "militarily determinant to war" and were officially classified as weapons of war. He again stressed that America needs to "act swiftly and decisively" whenever such telling evidence is found.
