There are no WMD, nor does the administration want us to know that there are no WMD. Because if there were WMD, where are they now?
Question. We have the best satellite capabilities in the world. We knew that hundreds of tractor trailers left Iraq for Syria in the days leading up to the war. How did we manage to lose track of hundreds of trucks? Unless we already knew what was in those trucks, who was driving them and where the trucks were going.
Which means there is only a couple of explanations.
1. Our intelligence service is incompetent (why didn't the Democrats stress this)
2. We preferred that if it was in fact WMD in the trucks, it is better to secure them and take the hit from the RATS about no WMD then to have the RATS say, how do we know we have found them all? That would cause a greater panic.
