Couldn't find anything on the Web, yet, but Fox News just had someone on who was explaining that the new head of MI-6, who had been in charge of the WMD investigation by British Intelligence, found extensive documentation of people on Saddam's payroll...including two of Hans Blix's subordinates. Apparently Saddam knew exactly where all of Hans's blind spots were and shipped 408 of his nuclear scientists over to Libya, where Qaddafi supplied a hollow mountain (among other things).

When a videotape documenting the evidence was shown to Qaddafi, he folded...in part because the jig was up, in part because he wasn't going to be receiving any financing for those 408 highly-paid scientists living in his country.

Hope Chappaquiddick Ted chokes on this one...

Apparently W. got the intelligence in late 2001 and decided that we couldn't risk the Islamofascists going nuclear.

Hope this hits the MSM soon...at least enough print media to leave a trail of slime across the face of all the naysayers, from the Gray Lady to the Senate.

SWEET! Thank you for posting this.
Our Richmond Va group protested Blix when he came here.

Please Remember: Blix was the ONLY inspector that Saddam would accept for the pre-war inspections.

He also mentioned that the Blix inspectors knew their rooms were bugged, and they would speak of where the next inspections would be carried out, giving Saddam a heads up so that any weapons there could be moved.

A lot of people have been hinting at this all along. I believe that this is being held back by the Bush administration until the best possible political use could be made of it. I think that might be maybe a month before election.

The FOX story on this, a few minutes ago, was great!

The also said that they are following it intently and there is more to come.

This baby has finally got some legs and I am elated!

Blix subordinates on Saddam's payroll

...and it would be ridiculous to consider the possibility of Blix himself having a piece of the action. < /sarcasm >

"Thanks for the ping. But, I'm doubtful this story will ever see the full light of day :-("

Be stalwart.

Fox is airing the issue of the Swift Boat officers (their signed letter of condemnation of Kerry) today, and into next week.

The best is yet to come.

President Bush could get two birds with one stone. If the facts are there, and he presents his case to the American people, the dims and the press will be helpless. Lets hope this becomes the story of the summer.

If this does get through the media filter to the general public, then it's curtains for Kerry - there's nothing left for him to hang his candidacy on. All he has left at this point is an insistence that the war was wrong (even though he voted for it).

"Do you have any idea when the SwiftBoat story will be on Fox today?"

It ran about an hour ago. (EST)

I can't give you the particulars, other than it was about 10 minutes long, and it was stated that more would be aired next week.

More astute Freepers ... HELP!

I hope the President takes this arrow out of the quiver and shoots it fast. If ever there was a time to bump a big story off the drooling media, it's NOW.

But then, the GOP high PR mucky-mucks have never been known for good timing and taking advantage of breaking news. They seem to think the pathetic "conservative" Tucker Carlson-types of the TV world will do their work for them.
