BREAKING NEWS: ABC, CBS, NBC and AP miss Iraq WMD story!
My head | 19 June 2014 | Me

Posted on 06/19/2014 8:01:35 PM PDT by Ben Mugged

The four main news organizations in the most powerful nation on earth have missed the opportunity to cover the most important breaking news in history. The famed WMD of Bush administration renown have been found in Iraq. Proof that Bush in fact did not lie and that the basis for the war in Iraq was in fact justified.

the mass media also 99%-missed the original WMD discovery story, when the Russians convoyed (some 500 big trucks) the weaponry out of Iraq....the report (with impressive pictures) was carried for all of an hour or two, and then any mention of the WMD’s went dark.

Actually, Hillary mentioned WMD’s as the reason for the Iraq War far more often than George W. Bush ever brought up WMD’s.

The Left forgets Saddam gassed the Kurds. Hint: WMD.

While were at it, google Clinton WMD.

Why should they report it; it would unravel their fiction
about, "There were NO WOMD under Saddam."

Hillary and Reid and Kerry et al got the same intelligence reports Bush got. But it was Bush who lied about it. /s

But all those “I’m smarter than anyone” people out there said Saddam didn’t have them. So, he didn’t have them. That’s that! /s

Propagandists escape the previous deviousness by not reporting what is obvious now.

(It’s old news. Move on. What difference, at this point, does it make?)

Or the fact an Iraqi military higher up said they refitted aircraft to fly some to Syria.

Not long after this there was a foiled attack in Jordan from a militant group with Sarin gas. I wonder where they got that.

BREAKING NEWS: ABC, CBS, NBC and AP miss Iraq WMD story!...well of course - they've been having such a good time the last few days building the case for the current mess in Iraq being Bush's fault and we shouldn't have been there originally because Bush lied - even Megyn Kelly on Fox gave Dick Cheney a hard time last night about how wrong he had been about the Iraq situation, and reported this new story tonight in a matter-of-fact way without pointing out at all how it shows that "Bush lied" is a lie......

There was an episode of ABC’s “Nightline” with Ted Koppel about six or seven years ago in which Ted played some audio tapes made by an Iraqi general.

The tapes were in Arabic, and through an interpreter, the Iraqi general on the audio tapes claimed that in the summer of 2002, Saddam Hussein flew planeloads of chemical weapons from Iraq to Syria.

There apparently was a dam collapse in Syria and the planes were dispatched to Syria with humanitarian aid, but in reality carried Saddam Hussein’s chemical weapons, according to this Iraqi general.

Anyone else see this episode?

And the Russian-Iraqi truck convoy went to Syria too. But now with Obama the world’s islamoNazi terrorists get direct weapons supplies anyway. ....

The biggest breaking news story in world history is that an Al Qaeda army on the march to Baghdad has overrun an old Iraqi WMD facility and has acquired equipment useable for WMD components. Combine that with the chlorine gas factory they overran in Syria and the story is dreadful, and best to not cover at all, apparently. Combine Chlorine Gas and Rocket Artillery canisters if you want to get the picture.

“I generally “attack at dawn.”

I send sorties out all night. Last time I had hot wings and margaritas it was a carpet bombing. Nothing survived.

Bill Gertz, national security reporter for the Washington Times, reported the story in some detail.

There was also the "lost" New York Times story fairly early in the war that some WMDs stored in a silo our troops were guarding somehow escaped from the silo. (Of course, that would mean there were actual WMD's, wouldn't it?)

Gertz has had a number of real looking news stories. When I see his name I always stop to read it.

All American media outlets will bury the story, of course.

They no longer have any legitimate claim to being news reporters; they’re nothing less than the Left’s Ministry of Propaganda, and that’s ALL they are.

It’s predictable the liberal media ignored this. But, will Megyn Kelly ignore it or will she admit Dick Cheney was right after all? Will Glenn Beck? Rand Paul?
