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.

Lamestreams will never fail to lie and distort about the Pubbies. Truth will out .. it always does.

God bless Pres. George W. Bush!

The WMD fiasco was the beginning of the end of Bush's credibility with the public at large("Bush lied, people died"). His failure to see the danger in this, and his failure to counter it with the truth, is unforgivable. Did he completely forget thew lesson of LBJ's "credibility gap?" It crippled the rest of his administration and set the stage for obama.

Even if Bush released the information, the mad lib press organs would scream that it was fabricated. Remember, the Bush Derangement Syndrome approached the level of severe psychosis, violent as well (as witnessed here in the Twin Cities).

I would guess that President George Walker Bush kept silent on the matter for national security, not political reasons; President Bush perhaps believed that publication of the circumstances surrounding the discovery of weapons of mass destruction might enable the enemy to find (and use) other caches of them against our troops, our allies [including Israel], the Iraqi people, or other innocent persons.

Point taken. I do wish though that president Bush would have fought back, when he could, on all sorts of issues. A case could be made that excessive silence in the face of outright lies was damaging to the country, too.

Imagine the situation where assets were tracking WMDs, including those that left the country into places like Syria. Those who took the WMDs were led to believe we didn't know about them so our assets could keep track of every single piece and piece by piece, neutralize them and secure the weapons.

If, however, we revealed knowledge of said weapons, they would go underground quicker than a bootleg John Edwards sex tape..

Now that we have all seen with our own eyes how pissy Pudge Rove can be when he throws one of his estrogen-induced hissy-fits, it is entirely possible that he cowled the Bush staff into going along with just being “real quiet about this so we don’t offend all of our friends in the press, on the Georgetown cocktail circuit, and on the other side of the aisle.”
