Forty-one Sarin-filled Rockets found in Iraq
CIA ^ | 10/8/2004 | brookwood

Posted on 10/08/2004 5:49:05 AM PDT by brookwood

Link to www.brodiejohnson.com to view a screen shot of page 30 from the Comprehensive Report of the Special Advisor to the DCI on Iraq's WMD, which states that 41 sarin/cyclosarin-filled 122mm rockets were found in Kahmisiyah, Iraq, in June and July 2004. This is a stockpile of chemical weapons. Do not let MSM get away with the "no WMDs in Iraq" lie - otherwise get used to seeing John Kerry for the next eight years.

The MSM doesnt give a rat's ass about 41 sarin rockets in Iraq.

They won't give up on the "no WMD in Iraq" angle until ONE sarin round explodes in Manhattan.

Why should it be up to just us or Fox or anyone to "be all over this".

It's the administration and the RNC and the Bush Campaign that should also be all over it like white on rice.

Why is hot news like this always up to us peons to disseminate while the higher-ups in the Republican party sit on their hands?

The worst part of all of this is a single weapon, not ten not a hundred but one, is capable of killings many many people. Hence the term Weapons of MASS destruction. Just as Al Qaeda, in a single deadly act, killed thousands of good Americans in 2001, so too could a single one of these weapons, in the wrong hands, bring about similar destruction.

The government-media complex has decided that unless it's a Wal-Mart sized warehouse full of nuclear-tipped ICBMs that were made in the last two years, it doesn't count as a legitimate weapon of mass destruction.

I have to suspect at this point that the mid-to senior level poeple at the CIA, as well as, at the State Dept, are doing all they can to elect Kerry and Edwards. I have often wondered why Bush didn't clean house when he took over. When the Clintons came to town, Bush/Reagan appointees in all departments, to include EVERY SINGLE ONE of the US Attorneys (50), were fired and replaced with the Clinton's thugs and henchmen. Some of the thugs/stooges Clinton were rewarded with federal jobs (see FEMA director et al)for crimes of omission and commision committed in Arkansas. Y'all remembuh Arkancide now doncha?

Even President Bush is now saying they were wrong. What's up with that?
I have always believed they had WMDs. He gased the Kurds They buried planes. They could certainly hide anything.
I'm afraid only time will tell.

That's why I posted the screen shot. The link is the CIA website www.cia.gov - there is a link to the Comprehensive Report of the Special Advisor to the DCI on Iraq's WMD. Click on Volume 3 and go to page 30. The .pdf file is 65 megabytes so it takes forever to load it. The smoking gun is buried well but it is there.

If this unfortunate event occured, how would they spin this angle? My guess is they would say Bush let this atrocity happen on his watch with no further mention that this was a WMD from Iraq.

It is maddening as hell.

This bull$hit moving of moving the goal posts by using the words pre 1991 weapons and this "stockpile" word is just giving me a friggen fit.

And of course Joe Sixpack will never know that they actually did find over 50 WMDs that could leave a mark because he equates no stockpiles of WMDs = no WMDs.

These are pre-1991 weapons. They don't count. I know, it's maddening.

And that matters precisely how? The Hussein regime was to account for and destroy all existing WMD's. The fact that these are pre-1991 is more condemning of his government, not less. It means that they have concealed records of these weapons in addition to the weapons themselves for over 12 years in violation of the cease fire agreed to in 1991.

If they had been of 1998 or later make, the argument could have been made that weapons inspections worked in the past and he had only been able to renew efforts since the weapons inspectors were removed. The fact that he was able to hide these munitions is clear evidence that weapons inspections had not worked nor were ever going to work.

This is a great arguement and I wonder why the Bush43 administration has not used it.

All US nuclear weapons are pre-1991 also. They still make good fireworks.

Obviously no one in the Bush administration read the CIA report. They just read the summary, or maybe they read what the Wahington Post said about the summary. If ANYONE can get this to someone who can run with it please let me know.

Don't you all know that a stockpile by definition has to have at least 100 separate weapons?

41 missiles just don't cut it.

a stockpile is defined as 42 weapons, and they have to be at least 123mm

Your comments leave me a bit confused...

Looks like to me that your referenced link.... CIA....is fine and shows up here with no problem.

And ...Mr. Lucky....what's with your complaint?

I'm sure you're a fine person and such, but you are brand spanking new to FreeRepublic and you have just posted a sensational allegation without a link to a corroborating source.

He gave the Link!!!!

in all honestly I think the Dems would only be convinced of WMD is if we found an actual Nuke in a rocket, on a launcher primed and ready to launch. Anything else need not apply.

Chemicals in their mind aren't WMD's.

Just shows their narrow mindedness.
