The reason for this 2nd posting was to show the complete article-and its (minor) revisions.
As far as I know,no one has suggested this series of events before, and I know of no way to prove them to
skeptical " Bush Lied !" adversaries.
If you have any knowledge to contribute,please be my guest !
ANd never forget: "The answer 'in Syria' did not satisfy you,even though the National Imagery and Mapping Agency told you about extraordinary road traffic from Iraq to Syria just before Operation Iraqi Freedom began, and even though some of those elusive goodies-in the form of VX gas had been intercepted as Syrian-based militants tried to use it in Jordan."
I'm skeptical for a very simple reason. There would have to be pretty widespread knowledge among the Iraqi military that WMDs were being used in some areas.
If that were the case, we would have several sources comming forward with that information now, and their accounts could be compared to give some level of confirmation as to their accuracy.
To the best of my knowledge, that hasn't happened.
I can believe that the weapons were smuggled out of Syria.
I have a harder time believing that they were used in the conflict like this article suggests. That simply requires too many people knowing too much for it to remain secret this long.
