How Did Iraq's Uranium End Up in Canada? He may not have had weapons of mass destruction, but Saddam Hussein did accumulate 550 tons of so-called "yellowcake," uranium that requires enrichment to fuel a nuclear bomb.

The 1.2 million pounds of yellowcake, which are currently in the port city of Montreal, are now the property of the Canadian company, Cameco .
