WMDs Found in Iraq Posted Nov 9, 2005
Contrary to ongoing reports by mainstream media outlets, WMDs have been found in Iraq, so reports New York Times best-selling author Richard Miniter in his new book, Disinformation.
Consider these shocking facts:
Found: 1.77 metric tons of enriched uranium
Found: 1,500 gallons of chemical weapons
Found: Roadside bomb loaded with sarin gas
Found: 1,000 radioactive materials--ideal for radioactive dirty bombs
Found: 17 chemical warheads--some containing cyclosarin, a nerve agent five times more powerful than sarin

1,500 gallons of chemical weapons?!?!? Where is Rush, Sean, Laura, Tony, ANYBODY on this!!!???
I can understand the MSM's reluctance to report such news, but how about the Pentagon and the WH?
This White House must have the worst PR ever.
Someone needs to get on this mooey pronto. (Or whatever that turn of phrase is.)
Did the topics bar break? I had to re-add "Waronterror"... ?
That is just "wot" in the topics, I believe.
I've heard of these findings before, buried deep even on Foxnews.com. Never saw any of these in the liberal media.
This is not new, I'm glad SOMEONE wrote a book about it... Still don't understand the Bush administration's wussy attitude about the liberal press. Grow some George!
This White House spends far more effort making America's case to inconvincible savages than it does explaining its actions to decent, loyal Americans.
shhhh, it is an illegal war
I've posted articles from DOD and DefenseLink on them.
If this report is legit
I wonder if these were ever recovered?
I think a lot of it has to do with the way the press treats them. Its like they gang up and treat everything with pessimism distain... i.e., GWB holds press conference on up to date stats in Iraq... Reporters shrug it off and ask if he is going to fire Rove because of the Plame issue or some such nonsense. It is way past time for the President to start going directly to the people.
I posted a theory long ago, after the WMD search started to look like it was going south... it goes like this:
Iraq was said to have something like 10,000 munition depots. So many that locating and clearing all of them would take years, even with massive manpower allocated to the task. Chem and Bio facilities can be quite small and can be hidden just about anywhere.
The last thing we would want would be for it to be common knowledge that there are various chem or bio weapons stashed around the place easy for the pickin'. It would become some kind of sick race against Al Queda to see who could find them first.
But spread the news, and take the PR hit, that there is nothing being found... and it buys time.
Just a thought. Maybe just wishful thinking, but it sure connects all the dots.
