I see your reasoning but the USA did not train Iraq in the use of chemical weapons nor did we teach them how to make them. And even if the shells are pre 1991, the onus was on Saddam to declare all WMD to the UN inspectors. Obviously he did not and is in breach of his disarmament obligations as outlined in the 17 UNSCRs against Iraq.

Dude, Clinton's impeachment hearings were years ago!

With the exception of Fox News, the rest of media seems to be content in their continued STRONG SUPPORT of Al Queda and other terrorist organizations as our US news media continues to attack our troops.

Maybe returning soldiers should raid Rockefeller Plaza and root out the terrorists occupying the building or the Time Warner building in Atlanta that houses the terrorists of CNN.

Maybe TBS should be renamed Terrorist Broadcast System...

That canard had been a staple of the loony left.

Anti-gas warfare samples to calibrate detectors
might have been shared. Special weapons have never
been shared.

CNN briefly had something on their pipeline service that said something like "GOP conference on WMD report", but I'm not paying for that crap.

Actually, that is a picture of Sarin detector tubes. They fit into a Dragar pump, and change color in the presense of Sarin.

But you have to wonder why they needed the tubes...

Actually, while channel surfing during the NBA playoffs, I did see the program.

I could see what a HIT PIECE it was when I saw footage from Watergate.

The libs love running Watergate into the ground any chance they get.

But with PBS, this is your tax dollars at work (sigh!)

I really hate to break this news, but this is not news. WE (the US) taught and trained them how to make and use chemical weapons back when they were at war with Iran. We knew they had these.

So what is the [your] definition of what WMD's are, as it relates to Iraq?

Didn't Saddam tell us that he had no more chemical weapons? Where he fooled the UN inspection team.

So it looks like Saddam lied - again. As if anyone really believed him in the first place.

No we didn't; although it isn't surprising that you might think we did since variations of that particular lie (that the "US armed Iraq") have been repeated so many times.

Iraq did obtain various dual-use equipment from several US companies (nearly all illegally via deception), and even obtained samples of some biological agents (anthrax, for example, which, while they weaponized it, was delivered to them by a naive commerce department who believed it to be for cattle vaccine). But there was never a formal policy to arm Iraq in any way.

In fact, the exact opposite was true. We were arming their enemy Iran (covertly sending Iran, via Israel ironically, TOW ATGMs, HAWK SAMs, and a variety of other equipment to help them defend themselves against Iraq).

About the only thing in Iraq's inventory that was of US manufacter were a few dozen Bell 212 helicopters, used as unarmed transports. And even those were ordered for civilian use. The fact that Iraq used non-US (mostly Soviet, French, and Chinese) military equipment can easily be shown by going to a library and checking out a copy of Janes. Unfortunately, most people won't bother to do so, and will instead continue to believe the "US armed Iraq" lie.

No doubt, you can find quite a few stories in the media, not to mention a few books, which claim otherwise. But they're all lies, easily disproved just by looking at what Iraq actually had. Outside of the Soviet Union and Communist China, their biggest source for military equipment was France, but they had equipment from just about every weapon-exporting country on the planet (even MRLSs from Brazil and artillery from South Africa) except one, and that was the U.S.

ButI can't even think of an excuse as to why they've kept this information secret while letting themselves get pummeled. If this is a rope-a-dope strategy, it will backfire. Everyone will now question their motives and they will need to explain themselves. I hope it's good.

Actually, even if it were Sarin, it isn't easy to kill lots of people ...

Best would be aerosol (little droplets) on a calm day, spread by an airplane over an OPEN or EXPOSED crowd. A marathon or 6k run or baseball or football stadium -> someplace where the droplets actually fall on the people.

If the nerve gas doesn't actually touch the skin, or the skin doesn't touch the fallen droplets (handrail, seat, bus grab strap, etc.) before they get washed off, it is much harder to kill people.

So the theoretical (scare people) numbers are for ideal distribution on a nekkid crowd in a windless day with no rain or medical help.

Kind of like the one gram of Pu239 will kill ten million people numbers. Not realistic. It's a real threat, but when the Japanese terrorists released nerve gas into a crowded subway train during rush hour, it didn't kill everybody in the car.
