Weapons of Mass Destruction Found
http://www.ebookstand.com/m/bryanrussell/ ^ | Bryan Russell

Posted on 04/09/2006 9:31:44 PM PDT by hildy123

About Our Book: In direct contrast to the popular phrase, "no weapons of mass destruction have been found," this text presented overwhelming evidence that weapons of mass destruction (WMD) have been found in Iraq. Chemical weapons, a biological warfare program, and key components of a nuclear weapons program were discovered by coalition forces as a result of Operation Iraqi Freedom. Both mustard and nerve agents were used against U.S. troops in Iraq in 2003. Over 50 chemical munitions have been captured in Iraq since the 2003 invasion. In addition to the captured chemical munitions that could kill over 100,000 people, cyanide blocks and active cyanide production labs have been found in Iraq. As a result of Operation Iraqi Freedom, coalition forces discovered biological weapons feed stock in the home of a prominent Iraqi BW scientist to include the most toxic substance known to man. The feedstock when combined with growth media could be used to produce massive quantities of biological agents within weeks. An active production line for Bacillus subtilis was discovered in 2003 that Iraqi scientists confirmed could be converted to an anthrax production line in less than a week. In addition to the declared dual-use facilities that could be quickly converted to make biological weapons, coalition forces found numerous undeclared biological labs in the Baghdad area as well as mobile labs, some of which were buried with expensive equipment and documents on how to make anthrax inside. In spite of UN sanctions and inspections, Iraq managed to preserve key components of its nuclear program to include maintaining stockpiles of undeclared enriched uranium, maintaining uranium enrichment technology, and continuing research to develop a nuclear weapon. Nuclear material to include yellowcake and enriched uranium were found in Iraq after the 2003 invasion. As a result of Operation Iraqi Freedom, centrifuge parts and an ion implantation program to preserve EMIS technology both of which are used to enrich uranium were discovered in Iraq. This book will allow you to review the details of the types and quantities of Weapons of Mass Destruction Found in Iraq as a result of Operation Iraqi Freedom. It includes pictures of U.S. troops capturing nuclear, biological and chemical weapons in Iraq in 2003 and 2004 and details the weapons found to date.

The question that weighs on my mind remains. Why did Bush allow the "no weapons were found" lie continue to be told.

For the longest time, I was convinced that the administration was merely playing a big game of rope-a-dope, which it used to do very effectively.

Yet the lie is now truth. It was told often enough that "factual" nature of the mantra has settled with the American public. The damage is done, so it doesn't matter how much new evidence comes forth.

Even more perplexing is the fact that Bush contributed to the lie himself. One recalls the joke he played on himself at a Washington Press Club dinner (or some other event) where he went "looking" for the weapons while up on stage.

With this stunt, even the discovery of a cache of nuclear war-heads will barely provide the administration when any moral weight since the administration itself seems to have written off the "weapons" exist argument.

Perhaps there was a reason for this. If so, can somebody please explain?

Nobody wants to hear it. The lie of "Iraq had no WMDs" has spread so far and wide that anything, including the truth, is heresay and neocon wet dreams. Sad really, because if you dug up the bekka valley you would find all kinds of WMDs...

Got it. That makes sense. Perhaps France too.

Now I do seem to recall us bombing a caravan with Russian advisors that were most likely carrying weapons (or at least wanted members of Saddam's administration) towards the Syrian border.

I can certainly see how that becoming a much bigger controversy would not have been helpful.

The current repubs have to be the worst political machine ever. The Dems are kickin their arses simply repeating lies and even resorting to near treason.

Sure they've won elections but get defined on every issue. I watched the Dems all over the media this weekend projecting the new "Leakgate" story while the President's press team enjoys private time. They are killing him!

In my humble opinion, people don't care about truth anymore. They believe so strongly in their case that nothing can persuade them otherwise. Therefore they are susectible to every tin foil lie that comes down the pike. Bush lied about WMDs. Right. What a 'slap your mother in the face' God Damn Lie that is. Iraq was a WMD dump as well as a haven for terrorists. You know, I don't care if the MSM carries this. They have their own agenda of trying to harpoon the president. I believe and that is enough for me...

So .. as far as you're concerned, it's Bush's fault ..??

And .. does he have control of what the NYT or the WP print ..??

How many speeches has the President now given about the NSA program - how many polls have been taken showing the American public believes the NSA program is necessary and not "domestic spying".

However, just the other day at a speech in NC, the President was bombarded by some idiot still saying the NSA was illegal.

Maybe WE are the ones who need to do more. Maybe WE need to start bombarding our friends and relatives with all the good information we get here on FR ..?? Hmmmmm??

Did you know that at the outset of our arming afghanistan against Russia in the 80's we armed them with russian arms only through Pakistan so it would not be traced backed to the US. Later on we let them have US made stingers but from the begining it was all covert.

In the liberal world, WMDs will never be found. Not if a hundred Shahab-3s were found in an bunker, WMDs were not found.

If the White House was converted into a plutonium-ringed crater and Osama Bin Laden appeared on CNN announcing he got it from Saddam, WMDs were not found.

If poison gas was sprayed over all of Europe and they were plunged back into the days of the Black Death, and Mohammad Al Ima Gona Killu was on TV proclaiming it came from Iraq, WMDs were not found.

If every single liberal on planet Earth was rounded up by crazed Muslim militants in Iraq, and were systematically tossed into a swimming pool of nerve agent so acidic that the bodies vaporized on contact, the very last liberal tossed in would proclaim "Bush lied! No WMDs were ever found!" with their last dying gasp.

As far as the Left is concerned, that we didn't find WMD 5 minutes after we entered Iraq, everything from that point on is a lie. The Left never did and never will want to know the truth about ANYTHING that upsets them.

Well, try buying the book and find out yourself. The burden of proof is now on the Libs. If they can disprove this book, then let’s get it on and put up the facts. I am currently in Iraq and I have spoke to two Marines who have seen WMD’s. I, myself work in environmental clean up. Trust me you would pooooop if you knew what was here at one time and is continuing to be found close to the Syrian boarder. That’s about all I can say. I know Bryan and he is good at his research.

Not true. Americans hate it when it can be proved that they were lied to. Just let a compendium of evidence be mounted, push the story hard, and the results will forever stain the dims and their lying liars!!!

Just of the top of my head, maybe there is no mention from the white house on WMD, because we have lost them.

If they are out there we have no idea where they are, or who controls them, so it looks as if it suits both sides to not talk about WMD.

"The question that weighs on my mind remains. Why did Bush allow the "no weapons were found" lie continue to be told."


I think its because before the invasion Bush and co told us that Saddam had "as much as 500 tons of sarin, mustard and VX nerve agent" and "upwards of 30,000 munitions capable of delivering chemical agents". What have we found? "Over 50 chemical munitions"? How far past their shelflife were the weapons that we found? How effective were they? Bush would've been ridiculed if one of his pre-war speeches saying "Saddam has tons of weapons" was played back to back with a post-war speech saying "We found the weapons; he had a lunch-box packed full of the stuff!".

The fact is that what has been found was a tiny fraction of what we were told was there. What we have found would justify invading my neighbor's barn, but probably not someone else's country.

From what I know that's been told to me in confidence from a full bird Spec Ops that has spent quite a bit of time in Iraq, the "cover-up" in the Lib media and "oops" "we really didn't find any WMD's" from the Bush admin., coupled what is being continuously found month to month, is that the US now has quite a bit of info, documented proof, that implicates a number of certain UN member European nations (allies?) and 2 of Iraq's next door neighbors were in serious violation of several UN sanctions of "dealings" with Iraq after the 1991 Gulf War right up to the 2003 "political rearrangement" of Iraq.

So, in all honesty, the administration, CFR folks, Trilateral Commission members, and the Bildeburg members, have agreed to the need of the cover-ups as not to scare the general public (world that is) as to threaten global economic business, and most importantly cover their butts from a political viewpoint.

The reason that we say we didn't find any WMDs is that we did.

To minimize the propaganda power of Saddam, Bush is willing to allow it to be said that we didn't find anything.

All the nuclear stuff Libya surrendered after Iraq had fallen was Saddam's, from a secret nuclear facility inside a mountain in Libya where 10,000 Iraqis worked on WMD's.

As soon as Quadaffi figured out Saddam done for, he decided to give up what he was hiding for him, because he knew we would be coming to get it (And him) later.

It's all about saving face with the arabs, we are beating them but not rubbing it in to the point where they get angry and get organized on a whole different scale.

President Bush is keeping them just confused enough to remain splintered and divided.

"The burden of proof is now on the Libs. If they can disprove this book, then let’s get it on and put up the facts."


The facts are all out there. Take this quote:

"Nuclear material to include yellowcake and enriched uranium were found in Iraq after the 2003 invasion."

That is so demonstrably false that I actually laughed when I read it. The yellowcake and enriched uranium that was found in Iraq was not touted as a "find" by the administration because we already knew it was there legally - it was tagged, sealed and monitored by the IAEA:

"The visit was agreed after weeks of pleading by the IAEA, which has kept the radiological materials at the site safely under UN seal for 12 years" - http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/middle_east/3009082.stm

The invasion, and subsequent looting, actually led to the possibility of this stuff falling into the wrong hands, so it's little wonder that it's kept quiet. Seriously, how can this book be taken seriously if it contains such obvious misinformation?

I was thinking the same thing at one time but I am not so sure anymore. Sorry I can't come up with a solid reason either. I speculate Bush just does the right thing but is disconnected to the American public. Just because Americans were happy with his explanation that we are at war and will not reveal all the details doesn't mean he shouldn't bother quantifying the justifications to go to war.

This is the only speculative reason I could think of, that he is not thinking about the future of the party and only focused on the here and now. It's like the immigration thing. He let this fester for several months and not went public about the guest worker/registation program. I think this is a good way to go (flame away) but allowed himself to look like he could care less.

I agree. What is a shame is that many Americans will not remember Bush Jr. with respect, kind of like Bush Sr. Like father like son when it comes to allowing the Dems to crucify them and not go public with response immediately. I will remember the Bush's as some of the best President's ever for having to make incredible tough (and accurate)decisions concerning life or death but they still need to remember that their is a Republican party that needs to win elections in the future.

"The question that weighs on my mind remains. Why did Bush allow the "no weapons were found" lie continue to be told."

I will tell you why. Think of the liberal mantra of No WMD found. Now think of the liberal mantra, "How do we know that we found all of the WMD? Because of Bush invading Iraq, Al Queada might now have WMD."

Which scenario would you rather have? On one hand, the WMD was probably secured by the Russians and out of country. On the other hand, terrorists could have possession of enough WMD to destroy a city.

In my opinion, taking out Saddam and fighting a war on terror pretty much got Bush reelected despite the no WMD claim. I am not sure if it would have been the same result after the libs and the world consemned Bush for allowing Al Queda to possess WMD.

I never said the lies were Bush's fault. Don't get so defensive.

I did question his failure to defend against the lies more aggressively, which he did fail to do (and actually helped to perpetuate).

You addressed the NSA program, but not the WMD program. Perhaps you didn't have anything to address the WMD failure, so you changed the subject.

But, your point did lead me to another observation, so thank-you for bringing it up.

Yes, Bush failed to counter the "No WMD" lies. However, his willingness to confront the "Illegal Spying on Americans" lie head-on may well be evidence that he learned from the previous error.

He has been out there front and center on the NSA issue as you correctly point out. As most Americans aren't concerned with the NSA thing, his efforts to circumvent the Dem's lies this time are working. Most don't learn from ther mistakes. Here, Bush may have.

I find some plausibility in your reply. Perhaps not as much of a "cabal / conspiracy" kind of thing mind you, but the basic premise could be part of it.

This goes to Eastforker's original statement too - Russia and China. But we all do recall that France doth protested just a wee bit too much.

I assumed it was b/c they were getting rich off "oil for food." But, I suppose they could have had other types of dealings contrary to UN sanctions.

Of course, if MOST of the weapons are in Syria, we can't really start pounding the table quite yet.

I was operating off the premise that a lot more have been found, based on this article, than even you are acknowledging. My question is based on the assumption that your statements are part of the lie itself. Who knows though.

Remember the convoy though. Regardless of how many have been "found," the reality is that if most of the weapons were spirited off to Syria, I suppose we wouldn't be in a position to pound the table on them quite yet, even if we knew it and knew exactly where they are.

Uh, we found out that the U.N. inspectors were allowed to 'tag and seal' lots of things, but were not permitted to check their 'tags and seals' easily, sometimes having to wait months for permission to check their 'tags and seals'. Try another approach other than placing faith in the same fools who waltzed the oil for food program.
