Damn it. I briefly thought of blogging something to the effect of, "This will turn out to be bogus within a week." Too good to be true, I thought. And it was. Alas, I was a wimp and said nothing, so I can take no credit. The allegations that France had somehow supplied Saddam Hussein with anti-aircraft missles as late as this year

arose from the markings on the Roland-type missiles discovered last week near Hilla, south of Baghdad. In photographs released in Warsaw, the markings included the coding: 07-01 KND 2003.

Polish forces apparently took this to indicate the date of manufacture, but France insisted that it has produced no Roland missiles since 1993.
Oh what a shock.

Did you hear the joke about the Polish navy?
