2) Much of what is said in this blog is based again on conversation with unnamed "Pentagon" officials, etc. and we are supposed to dismiss this find since the weapons are considered to be "no threat". I've yet to see someone who is arrested with an illegal substance be acquitted because the substance is "no threat".
3) What has been declassified is only a small part of the entire report. We don't know what else is in the report. Why has the left not demanded the immediate declassification of the entire report if they are so sure this is "bogus"? Further, why have they not demanded to know why this is classified in the first place?
4) What we may be seeing is only the hint of a "trump" card being played in a "game" that is much larger than just the finding of WMD in Iraq. The obvious question should be which contries supplied the materials for Saddam to make these weapons and did these same countries help him make post-91 weapons? Methinks we may see both China and Russia show a little more interest in both North Korea and Iran in the next few weeks.
Why aren't the liberals interested in these questions? Cognitive dissonance may prevent them from asking the obvious questions.
The Left doesn't want the truth...they want THEIR TRUTH...(remember they're moral relativists)
Think about this: Why was Clinton given a pass to bomb Iraq in 1998? He was trying to destroy these SAME weapons and the Left supported it...obviously they were dangerous enough in 1998 to warrant Operation Desert Fox.
| I believe finding these weapons was the exact purpose of the UN sanctions. Old or not, the existence of these weapons is a violation of the UN mandates. They don't get a pass because these weapons were "old".
I agree. Yesterday three different liberal talking heads all used the same line: "These are not the weapons the administration said we were looking for."
My question is: Then tell me what weapons we were looking for. Do they have particular serial numbers or something. I really don't recall anyone in the administration saying exactly what weapons we were after. We still have Mk-62 warheads on top of our ICBMs and I was working on them in the early 70s'.
Does anyone have a link or even remember anyone saying that Hussein had 500 or more of these WMDs but they are too old to be useful?
The point is, no one had any knowledge that Hussein just threw these things out in the fields to bake in the sun, but this whole flap does gives us valuable insight into the minds of liberals and how their brains work, or rather don't work.
Im assuming thats a rhetorical question.
