Moscow Moved Weapons to Syria and Lebanon
According to a former top Bush administration official, Russian special forces teams moved weapons of mass destruction out of Iraq to Syria.
"I am absolutely sure that Russian Spetsnatz units moved WMD out of Iraq before the war," stated John Shaw, the former deputy undersecretary for international technology security. According to Shaw, Russian units hid Saddam's arsenal inside Syria and in Lebanon's Bekka valley.
"While in Iraq I uncovered detailed information that Spetsnatz units shredded records and moved all WMD and specified advanced munitions out of Iraq to Syria and Lebanon," stated Shaw during an exclusive interview.

The libs and the MSM will be all over this on the Sunday Morning shows...................right!!!!
Has this been reported anywhere else. The only thing I have seen is the General that stated they were moved.
Notice that this was written a year ago...and yet not one MSM reporter/pundit has backed off the "there were NO WMDS", stance.
I don't think they will either...even if we were to go to Syria and dig them up...they would find some way to rationalize that they weren't THE weapons on the list that Colin Powell referred to at the UN....
or...we planted them there...or some other excuse.
The Iraqi General says it was passenger air liners stripped of their seats that were used to ship WMDs. Why not both?
This is an old rumor, which came out a few months after we invaded and didn't find anything. The former head of the Romanian KGB was the source of the news.

True. Bush could, if he chose to, bring it to everyone's attention. I'm not saying for sure he's wrong not to, but he might be.
We'll never know what's the real truth, will we?
Personally, I believe we have the documentation to prove this from the millions of documents seized after the fall of Iraq and more proof from other means. When the President will allow these to be released (if never), we shall see. Until then, let's not get to enthusiastic. After all, it is to easy for the DeathoCrats to smear a report simply because it is done from personal knowledge and has no back up proof.
Documented proof is much tougher to smear, but we all know the DeathoCrats will attempt it when it happens (if ever).
It could have been both...there was probably a heck of a lot to move in a short period of time...since they didn't know for sure when the US would invade..
Also, remember there were Russian officials still in Baghdad the day we invaded...and they barely got out.
I am sure they were trying to get rid of the evidence of their complicity in the WMD program and move.
Another in a list of what Putin has done bad...
It makes sense. I don't have confidence those ragheads could move those weapons without blowing themselves up. Explosives have a tendency to go off around these people, sometimes before they're ready.
I think there must be a security or political reason that Bush doesn't want to reveal what they know about the whereabout of the WMDs...
I think HE is more intent on winning the war on terror, and stabilising Iraq...than proving he was right...especially since at this point we can't get into Syria and look for them (if we haven't already gone and found them)...
Bush is looking LONG term...and I am sure there is a lot that the Pentagon and even the State Department are reluctant to be made known...
Kind of like the NSA wiretaps...
Possiblity not, or not for a long time....there is just so much to do over there...and there may need to be some secrecy for a while.
Yes, I recall that story. Russian military advisors were detained (by either us or the Brits, can't recall which) with a carload of files they were spiriting out of Iraq.
Perhaps. One wonders why the Bush administration would keep this under wraps....like why they killed all follow ups to Clinton misdeeds.
How would anything be proven?
My guess is that much of this stuff isn't even stored in Syria anymore, but the real nasty stuff eventually got moved to russia to either be destroyed or the russians gladly inherited it.
Anyone remember this story?
