Wikileaks absolve Bush (bio weapons, Iraq - as if ..)
Blogstitution ^ | 10-23-10

Posted on 10/23/2010 4:22:31 PM PDT by STARWISE

I’ve written about this before … but with the release of the WIKILEAKS documents, even Wired magazine acknowledges that US troops found chemical and biological weapons in Iraq. But don’t worry; if you liberals keep telling yourself “Bush Lied”… you’ll get through this.

By late 2003, even the Bush White House’s staunchest defenders were starting to give up on the idea that there were weapons of mass destruction in Iraq.

But for years afterward, WikiLeaks’ newly-released Iraq war documents reveal, U.S. troops continued to find chemical weapons labs, encounter insurgent specialists in toxins, and uncover weapons of mass destruction

In August 2004, for instance, American forces surreptitiously purchased what they believed to be containers of liquid sulfur mustard, a toxic “blister agent” used as a chemical weapon since World War I. The troops tested the liquid, and “reported two positive results for blister.” The chemical was then “triple-sealed and transported to a secure site” outside their base.

Awesome post. A brave man and a patriot no doubt.

I like the link but it didn't work on me. I just used to be a BSer. Bush skeptic - ur - person. That was during the primary and early months in office. I didn't like him. Didn't like the process in the primary, and felt like I was holding my nose voting for him.

I knew his idea of conservative and mine were far from unity. Then 911 happened. His response was everything anyone would have expected from a president. He inspired us all and led the world.

How and why things got so out of hand is hard to say, the leftist media, just plain old opposition party, or a powerful foreign object turning far too many people away from the USA and it's leader. Whatever the cause, it hurt us and continues to.

The chapter that probably isn't in GWB's book is how that bank bailout worked out in the end. The economy is everything to our way of life. Think hard and find better advisers than Bush had at his disposal. A great man no doubt. But also one of the best presidents ever to be so poorly served by his staff. While the leftist media was having a heyday and insiders were leaking dangerous stuff why couldn't someone leak some of this confirming data?

"And the irony, of course, is that it was the invasion that gave insurgents and Islamists access to these remnants."

No! The irony is they were stopped dead in their tracks by a military following the orders of their CIC. But the real irony is that the whole world encouraged our response to 911 in Afghanistan and Iraq, our country with our president leading did the right thing. The noble thing. And the only thing that could discourage 911 type attacks in the future.

I actually stood in abandoned Iraqi classrooms where the were teaching offensive use of bio-chem weapons.

The books and literature and posters on the walls showed offensive use.

I also saw mixing equipment and 80mm mortar equipment in the same bunker.

Don’t remember whether I read or saw it on FOX. But there was a soldier who related it to a cup of coffee. They found the coffee, pot, sugar, cream, spoon and every thing they needed to make a cup of coffee. They just didn’t find a steaming cup.

At one point I had access to raw intel reports and am convinced that for some reason unknown to me the reports of sarin and other weapon finds were squelched by the US command and political structure.
