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?
