The American experts observed a parade of the Baath Party in January 2002 which showed unconventional weapons which disappeared since the beginning of the war, in March 2003, and which are still untraceable. (Richard Miniter, 22 myths that undermine the War one Terror, Regnery, 2005, p. 104)
The UN inspectors made sure that they were all gone. Nothing to see here, move along.
The Bekka Valley is where I’ve read on various posts that some of this stuff may have gone to?????
It's ALL in Syria.... I s'pect!
Bill Clinton blew up ALL of the chemical and bioogical weapons with cruise missile strikes in 1997.
If we will just pull our troops off the world stage, and secure our borders, magic faeries will just make any missile of aircraft attacks bounce off our nation’s airspace...
True Conservatives* know this...

THE UN RAISES CONCERN ABOUT RISKS OF WMDS PROLIFERATION SINCE TRANSFER OF IRAQI MATERIAL
On June 9th, the UN Monitoring, Verification and Inspection Commission briefed the Security Council about the export of Iraqi WMD, missile and nuclear components shipped out of Iraq before, during and after the invasion. As reported by MENL news service, UNMOVIC acting executive chairman Demetrius Perricos told the Council, “The removal of these materials from Iraq raises concerns with regard to proliferation risks,” and said inspectors found Iraqi WMD and missile components shipped abroad that still contained UN inspection tags.
And according the the president, who apparantly agrees with the MSM that the WMD intel was botched.
The great difference between the president and the MSM is that the President, if he says the WMDS are in Syria and Lebanaon, he has to attack both countries.
Gad it ?
Nobody wants that in the White House.
When the Israelis attacked Lebanon in te Summer 2006, they bombed the south, beyrouth, but also the Bakaa Valley :
The World Tribune reported on Perricos's briefing. "He said the Iraqi facilities were dismantled and sent both to Europe and around the Middle East at the rate of about 1,000 tons of metal a month... The Baghdad missile site contained a range of WMD and dual-use components, UN officials said. They included missile components, reactor vessel and fermenters ... required for the production of chemical and biological warheads. 'It raises the question of what happened to the dual-use equipment, where is it now and what is it being used for,' Perricos's spokesman, said. 'You can make all kinds of pharmaceutical and medicinal products with a fermenter. You can also use it to breed anthrax.'"
Retired Air Force Lt. Gen. James Clapper, head of the National Imagery and Mapping Agency, said vehicle traffic photographed by U.S. spy satellites indicated that material and documents related to the arms programs were shipped to Syria."
"Last month Moshe Yaalon, who was Israel's top general at the time, said Iraq transported WMD to Syria six weeks before Operation Iraqi Freedom began.
Last March, John A. Shaw, a former U.S. deputy undersecretary of defense for international technology security, said Russian Spetsnaz units moved WMD to Syria and Lebanon's Bekaa Valley.
"While in Iraq I received information from several sources naming the exact Russian units, what they took and where they took both WMD materials and conventional explosives," Mr. Shaw told NewsMax reporter Charles Smith.
Retired Marine Lt. Gen. Michael DeLong was deputy commander of Central Command during Operation Iraqi Freedom. In September 2004, he told WABC radio that "I do know for a fact that some of those weapons went into Syria, Lebanon and Iran."
In January 2004, David Kay, the first head of the Iraq Survey Group which conducted the search for Saddam's WMD, told a British newspaper there was evidence unspecified materials had been moved to Syria from Iraq shortly before the war.
"We know from some of the interrogations of former Iraqi officials that a lot of material went to Syria before the war, including some components of Saddam's WMD program," Mr. Kay told the Sunday Telegraph.
Also that month, Nizar Nayuf, a Syrian journalist who defected to an undisclosed European country, told a Dutch newspaper he knew of three sites where Iraq's WMD was being kept. They were the town of al Baida near the city of Hama in northern Syria; the Syrian air force base near the village of Tal Snan, and the city of Sjinsar on the border with Lebanon.
In an addendum to his final report last April, Charles Duelfer, who succeeded David Kay as head of the Iraq Survey Group, said he couldn't rule out a transfer of WMD from Iraq to Syria.
"There was evidence of a discussion of possible WMD collaboration initiated by a Syrian security officer, and ISG received information about movement of material out of Iraq, including the possibility that WMD was involved. In the judgment of the working group, these reports were sufficiently credible to merit further investigation," Mr. Duelfer said."
"The short answer to the question of where the WMD Saddam bought from the Russians went was that they went to Syria and Lebanon," former Deputy Undersecretary of Defense John A. Shaw told an audience Saturday at a privately sponsored "Intelligence Summit" in Alexandria, Va. (www.intelligencesummit.org).
"We are not talking about a large stockpile of weapons," he said. "But we know from some of the interrogations of former Iraqi officials that a lot of material went to Syria before the war, including some components of Saddam's WMD programme. Precisely what went to Syria, and what has happened to it, is a major issue that needs to be resolved."
"Two days before the war, on March 17th, we saw through multiple intelligence channels - both human intelligence and techinical (satellite,eavesdrop) intelligence - large caravans of people and things, including some of the top 55 Iraqis, going to Syria."

general DeLong, Tommy FRank’s deputy :
Actually, you saw trucks. You don't know what was in them.
Tons of stuff going to Syria, aided by Russians.
I even remember reading how we took out a convoy rushing to the Syrian border just at the start of the invasion, and killed some Russian ‘diplomats’.
The weapons were moved to Bekka Valley (who knows if they are still there) with big fat HAMAS (funded and run by Iran) sitting right on top of them.
Some missile motors were found in a junkyard in Netherlands in mid 2003 right after the invasion, someone was cleaning house right after we went in
