Don't Be Surprised When Iraqi WMD Found
April 20, 2004
I don't know if you heard about this, because it has not been widely reported. Terrorists linked to Al-Qaeda were poised to detonate a chemical bomb in the heart of Amman, Jordan, that would have killed 20,000 people and contaminated a large area. King Abdullah praised Jordan's intelligence service for foiling a crime never before seen in the kingdom of Jordan. The target was a headquarters of the general intelligence department on a hill in Amman.
King Abdullah was to be in America to meet with President Bush, but decided not to come because of this threat. Where this story gets interesting is that King Abdullah of Jordan says that the vehicles carrying these explosives, the chemical bomb, were smuggled over the border from neighboring Syria. Syria is denying this, but these are weapons of mass destruction.
Syria is a transit point for weapons of mass destruction. The whole subject of where are the weapons of mass destruction remains a focal point of mine. It remains an area of heightened curiosity, because I do not believe that they have been destroyed. I do not believe that Iraq never had them. I think Iraq had them. I think Iraq was working on them. I don't think the world's intelligence agencies are as woefully incompetent and bad and inept as the whole weapons of mass destruction issue would lead us to believe.
There are some things missing from buildings in Iraq, and there's too much speculation out there about how some of this stuff can be miniaturized and transported out of the country easily. Syria is an obvious place, and many people I respect have pointed to the Bekaa Valley as a place as well. We're not going to invade Syria any time soon to find out, but this is the second example of weapons of mass destruction-type coming out of Syria.
Now, they had to get to Syria somehow. I just want to keep your mind open to the possibility that these weapons of mass destruction from Iraq are somewhere, and they've not been destroyed. They haven't just vanished into the ether, and I'm going to make a prediction to you that all of the liberals and critics of the president who have harped on this and jumped on this have once again jumped the gun. They are a little premature here because we don't know yet what, if anything, did happen to those weapons of mass destruction, despite knowing that they did exist. So keep your hats on and don't be surprised down the road what is learned at some point.
Yellow cake uranium has been found at junk yards in Rotterdam and that's exactly what Iraq was looking for. This stuff could have been disbursed over the years to any number of places, and if you think that an Al-Qaeda related group is going to blow up Amman, Jordan with weapons that were procured from Syria, if you think that Al-Qaeda is not related to what all was going on in Iraq, and the Middle East, then you are engaged in blindness or wishful thinking. That is the position of the left, and that's why they can't be trusted to be placed in a leadership position.

I'm rarely surprised in early October!!! DU must be tin foilin outa their gourds about this!!!
The Chief of Staff of the Israeli Army, a guy named Ya'alon said that the WMDs would be found in Iraq, though not in the quantities the CIA claimed.
Iran said that the uprisings in Fallujah were "concocted" to "cover up" the importation of WMDs that the U.S. would "discover." This tells me the Iranians know we must be pretty close to finding something, for them to make up such a yarn.
Now this chem bomb in Jordan. (Not to mention that Libya ended up with far more chem/bio weapons than ANYONE thought they had.) Hmmmm.
A sea of glass with a great big hole in the middle ... kinda' like a shiny bagel.
Been reported on FR since before the war started.
I wonder what a daisey cutter would do in Mecca?
I hope it warms your heart to be associated with these kinds of sentiments. And I'm sure you can square this with the "just war" doctrine.
What about the "Bush is an idiot who was played for a sucker by neo-cons who are now abandoning him like rats leaving a sinking ship" train of thought? Bush could have had a decent presidency but he shot himself in the foot by turning over his administration to the people who supported John McCain in the 2000 Republican primary.
They didn't make up that particular yarn. The Left here in the good ol' USA made that one up, before we even invaded.
