Check up thread a post or two at some pics I took back in Dec 2003 or Jan 2004.
Of course ... that’s their favorite rathole to crawl into.
Yep ... thank you.
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.
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.
I believe you. Thank you SO much for your service
God bless you !
May I second the “thank you” and “God bless you?”
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.
Well, as noted above .. and as lethal as sarin
is .. they probably didn’t want the al queda
beasts to go on a treasure hunt, and brutalize
whomever to get to it.
All this evidence...including things like your photos, Eagle Eye....are going to come back to bite the ones who
doubted and accused!
I personally saw barrels of DMS, chlorine, mixing equipment, and mortar equipment in a weapons bunker on an Iraqi airbase.
I believe that the DMS is what Chemical Ali used on the Kurds.
I was also in a meeting where a GS 15 said that the ISG had found a “smoking gun”. He then clammed up when he saw that not everyone in the room had a clearance badge for what he was saying.
The ISG had a huge warehouse full of documents and film and dozens of interpreters working in Doha to make sense of the millions of documents.
Undoubtedly there is a lot more than we know now.
WE ALL KNEW W WAS DOING THE RIGHT THING IN IRAQ!
(and every time I see a "tree shredder" I'm confirmed of it once again!)
I believe it was Polish troops found the sarin.
Now how did this documentation get leaked? Sorry I have been busy with ‘life’ and this post does not describe how the documentation made its way into the public view.
As I remember Russia and China were NOT on our side as well as France and Germany when it came time to remove old Saddam. Personally, I think the silence in regard to what was discovered was not only a national security consideration but as much so not to expose the whose who around this globe that already had ‘oil’ contracts with Saddam in defiance of the UN which even perverted its own ruling with that sham of ‘oil’ for rotten ‘food’ program.
It was an interesting time in my life.
Undoubtedly there is a lot more than we know now.
I’m sure you’re right.
Just the twisted partisans so confidently and
joyously lying and denying their existence AFTER
how many dozens of thousands of poor, innocent
Kurds were brutally poisoned and seeing the photos
was proof enough for me.
The press oughta be herded out behind the barn
Bless you, Lynn ... we all knew.
Oh, I bet! God bless again. :-)
Thank you for the ping Starwise! ...think we knew this all along and while I wish our dear W would have fought back a bit more, I trust that he did what he believed to be the right thing for our country. imo, President Bush always placed the country above himself. May God always bless and protect this good man.
Have you heard of WikiLeaks, in the title of the thread?
Another article ..
WikiLeaks Reveals Troops Did Find Some WMD In Iraq
Thank you for serving our great country and for the sacrifices you and your family have made.
...and you as well. These are very important times we live in. I just hope we will be able to do whatever it is we will need to, to save this great Country of ours.
Yes, I have 'heard' of WikiLeaks, but really not more than that... But I am trying to catch up about who/what/where/when/why of this global leak. Like I said before 'life' has been very busy and so I am attempting to catch up.
At least I came back physically whole.
Not everyone else did.
Thank you for the pings, STAR. It’s been a loooong day/week and I’m falling asleep as I type this, but trust me...I’ll be back tomorrow! G’night!
Is there someone that can cite Pres. G. W. Bush as having stated definitively and with certainty that Saddam Hussein had in his possession WMD? Some highly placed officials during the Clinton admin. came much closer than Dubya did to making such assertions.
God bless you, sir, and THANK YOU for your service. :o)
At any rate, you think if they found a live nuke in someones basement in Chicago, that anyone without a secret clearance would be told about it ?
Saddam HAD to have WMD just to counter what the Iranians are and were doing.
Wow. Excellent info. I should have read all the posts on the thread before posting my response above. In a hurry.
They did announce some of these discoveries, and they did show pictures. I remember it quite well.
It wasn’t enough for the MSM, though. They ignored it because unless there were eleventy-jillion giant nuclear bombs lines up in a row with a sign that said “Saddam’s Weapons of Mass Destruction,” it didn’t count.
He NEVER said it. The closest anyone came was Tenent who told Bush it was a “slam dunk” that there were WMDs in Iraq. Bush always said the “THREAT” that Saddam had, or could share, WMDs was sufficient, and I agree. Had not a single WMD been found (and there were plenty), it still would have justified going into a nation that had repeatedly USED WMDs in the past and could give them to al-Queda.
I remember that also, but that's not what was being said in the early part of this thread. It was being said that significant amounts of WMD were found in Iraq, but that the Bush administration declined to acknowledge and display the finds due to some unspecified, grave national security concerns.
That I don't buy at all.
The warheads on some of those buried fighter jets.... Not exactly high explosive or armor piercing, eh?
