Has Assad threatened to reveal the source of his WMDs?

That would make Obama, and several hundred other Democrats, look like complete idiots, and not worthy of being entrusted with the nation's security..

It would be easy for Assad to get a secret, private communique to Obama...telling him to stay out of Syria or the info gets released to the public...

And that's why we now have the US Navy cruising off the Syrian coast. Obama will emulate Clinton in 1998..launch a few Tomahawks...kill a few camels...and withdraw..claiming that a "message has been sent.."

Maybe it wasn’t Assad who brought them into Syria. But even if it was the radicals who have them your theory still holds.

Democrat Quotes on Iraq Weapons of Mass Destruction
davidstuff ^ | 1/4/03 | davidstuff

Posted on Monday, January 5, 2004 2:28:26 AM by freedom44

“One way or the other, we are determined to deny Iraq the capacity to develop weapons of mass destruction and the missiles to deliver them. That is our bottom line.” —President Bill Clinton, Feb. 4, 1998

“If Saddam rejects peace and we have to use force, our purpose is clear. We want to seriously diminish the threat posed by Iraq’s weapons of mass destruction program.” —President Bill Clinton, Feb. 17, 1998

“Iraq is a long way from [here], but what happens there matters a great deal here. For the risks that the leaders of a rogue state will use nuclear, chemical or biological weapons against us or our allies is the greatest security threat we face.” —Madeline Albright, Feb 18, 1998

“He will use those weapons of mass destruction again, as he has ten times since 1983.” —Sandy Berger, Clinton National Security Adviser, Feb, 18, 1998

“[W]e urge you, after consulting with Congress, and consistent with the U.S. Constitution and laws, to take necessary actions (including, if appropriate, air and missile strikes on suspect Iraqi sites) to respond effectively to the threat posed by Iraq’s refusal to end its weapons of mass destruction programs.” Letter to President Clinton, signed by: — Democratic Senators Carl Levin, Tom Daschle, John Kerry, and others, Oct. 9, 1998

“Saddam Hussein has been engaged in the development of weapons of mass destruction technology which is a threat to countries in the region and he has made a mockery of the weapons inspection process.” -Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D, CA), Dec. 16, 1998

“Hussein has ... chosen to spend his money on building weapons of mass destruction and palaces for his cronies.” — Madeline Albright, Clinton Secretary of State, Nov. 10, 1999

“There is no doubt that ... Saddam Hussein has reinvigorated his weapons programs. Reports indicate that biological, chemical and nuclear programs continue apace and may be back to pre-Gulf War status. In addition, Saddam continues to redefine delivery systems and is doubtless using the cover of a licit missile program to develop longer-range missiles that will threaten the United States and our allies.” Letter to President Bush, Signed by: — Sen. Bob Graham (D, FL), and others, Dec 5, 2001

“We begin with the common belief that Saddam Hussein is a tyrant and a threat to the peace and stability of the region. He has ignored the mandate of the United Nations and is building weapons of mass destruction and th! e means of delivering them.” — Sen. Carl Levin (D, MI), Sept. 19, 2002

“We know that he has stored secret supplies of biological and chemical weapons throughout his country.” — Al Gore, Sept. 23, 2002

“Iraq’s search for weapons of mass destruction has proven impossible to deter and we should assume that it will continue for as long as Saddam is in power.” — Al Gore, Sept. 23, 2002

“We have known for many years that Saddam Hussein is seeking and developing weapons of mass destruction.” — Sen. Ted Kennedy (D, MA), Sept. 27, 2002

“The last UN weapons inspectors left Iraq in October of 1998. We are confident that Saddam Hussein retains some stockpiles of chemical and biological weapons, and that he has since embarked on a crash course to build up his chemical and biological warfare capabilities. Intelligence reports indicate that he is seeking nuclear weapons...” — Sen. Robert Byrd (D, WV), Oct. 3, 2002

“I will be voting to give the President of the United States the authority to use force — if necessary — to disarm Saddam Hussein because I believe that a deadly arsenal of weapons of mass destruction in his hands is a real and grave threat to our security.” — Sen. John F. Kerry (D, MA), Oct. 9, 2002

“There is unmistakable evidence that Saddam Hussein is working aggressively to develop nuclear weapons and will likely have nuclear weapons within the next five years ... We also should remember we have always underestimated the progress Saddam has made in development of weapons of mass destruction.” — Sen. Jay Rockefeller (D, WV), Oct 10, 2002

“He has systematically violated, over the course of the past 11 years, every significant UN resolution that has demanded that he disarm and destroy his chemical and biological weapons, and any nuclear capacity. This he has refused to do” — Rep. Henry Waxman (D, CA), Oct. 10, 2002

“In the four years since the inspectors left, intelligence reports show that Saddam Hussein has worked to rebuild his chemical and biological weapons stock, his missile delivery capability, and his nuclear program. He has also given aid, comfort, and sanctuary to terrorists, including al Qaeda members ... It is clear, however, that if left unchecked, Saddam Hussein will continue to increase his capacity to wage biological and chemical warfare, and will keep trying to develop nuclear weapons.” — Sen. Hillary Clinton (D, NY), Oct 10, 2002

“We are in possession of what I think to be compelling evidence that Saddam Hussein has, and has had for a number of years, a developing capacity for the production and storage of weapons of mass destruction.” — Sen. Bob Graham (D, FL), Dec. 8, 2002

“Without question, we need to disarm Saddam Hussein. He is a brutal, murderous dictator, leading an oppressive regime ... He presents a particularly grievous threat because he is so consistently prone to miscalculation ... And now he is miscalculating America’s response to his continued deceit and his consistent grasp for weapons of mass destruction ... So the threat of Saddam Hussein with weapons of mass destruction is real...” — Sen. John F. Kerry (D, MA), Jan. 23. 2003

This has pretty much been known for years, but not reported in the mainstream media for the reason you cite: it would have made the Democrats (and the mainstream media) look like partisan liars. Which, of course, they are.

Assad’s father used chemical weapons on the Syrians and killed something like 50,000 while Hussein had his weapons still in Iraq. This is nothing new.

Bush was not right.

Are you saying that Obama should invade Syria and spend a decade nation building because they have wmd?

Some people just didn’t give a rat’s ass about the weapons that Saddam had in his arsenal.

I think so.

Combine that with gun running from Bengahzi, and the MSM can’t
remain silent.

Of course Barry will go on “ Teleprompter” and disparage anyone who
makes this claim....

They don't just look the part. They are complete idiots and they are not worthy of being trusted with anything. I wouldn't let your average liberal run a convenience store, and I wouldn't let hussein sweep the floor in one. Trust == 0.

I do not need Assad to reveal anything nor anyone else for that matter as I already understand that Obama and many Democrats are not worthy of being entrusted with anything...

Maybe. But given that if Syria can manufacture herbicides and/or insecticides on their own, that won't take much to make the relatively simple--but still deadly--Tabun nerve gas, which is essentially an insecticide derivative.

I always assumed that’s where the WMDS went. The Ba’ath Party is still in power in Syria.

RE: "that means....gasp...BUSH WAS RIGHT!!"

No, no.. that aspect of the story will be ignored. The 1960's Marxist-Alinsky campus psycho spoiled brats and their ideological issue in the "Government-Academic-MSM Establishment" will spin the story as

IT'S BUSH'S FAULT!! because he didn't stop the WMD transfer.
