Iraqi Documents: Plans To Produce Prohibited Chemical Weapons Precursors (Translation)
Pentagon/FMSO website for Iraq Pre-war documents ^ | June 28 2006 | jveritas

Posted on 06/28/2006 6:34:38 PM PDT by jveritas

Document http://70.168.46.200/released/04-20-06/CMPC-2003-013956.pdf dated in the year 2000 and document http://70.168.46.200/Released/06-21-06/ISGQ-2003-00044424.pdf dated January 2002 contain memos that talk about finalized research and the plans to locally produce Chemical Materials that can be used as Precursors for Chemical Weapons and that are prohibited by the United Nations for Iraq to produce locally. These materials were allowed to be imported under strict UN regulation because it can be used for other civilian industries and that Iraq should have declared exactly the imported quantities of these materials and where it is used and the balance in bi-yearly report to the UN. However Iraq was absolutely prohibited from manufacturing it locally because it will not be controlled by the UN and thus it can be used to produce Chemical Weapons.

Some of the Chemical Weapons Prohibited Precursors include DICYLOHEXYLDIACARBODIIMIDE which can be used as a Precursor to make SARIN Nerve Gas. SODIUM CYANIDE AND POTASSIUM CYANIDE can be used as a Precursor to make TABUN Nerve Gas. These materials fall under the List A of the United Nation Monitored Iraq Import/Export Goods, see page 9 (A.36, A.37) and page 11 (A.50) http://www.un.org/Depts/unmovic/documents/S-2002-515.pdf , but again these materials were absolutely prohibited to be locally produced in Iraq whereas it is very clear from these memo that the Iraqi were set to produce these Chemical Precursors locally. The Sodium Cyanide and Potassium Cyanide were listed under “Drug research” programs to make it less suspicious.

Oh, my!! This sounds like the most clear-cut expression of operational plans to produce precursors for chem weapons..... in 2002!!

But if we don't have "stockpiles" of 100,000 new chem warheads then I guess we just don't have anything, now do we?

I've thought all along that Saddam's regime would have reason to keep precursor chemicals separately, both to maximize longevity and so that they could maintain the fiction that they were merely producing ag pesticides or whatever...... can anyone track the various "pesticides" and chemicals that have been found since the 2003 invasion?

Great job once again, jveritas!! The net is closing and the fools who parrot the talking points for the DNC and Saddam's Baghdad Bob may finally face the reckoning.

Yes document CMPC-2003-013956 call it Precursor. Of course they did not state it is "Chemical Weapon" precursor but the UN document was very clear about these materials being used a precursors for Chemical Weapons.

"Great job once again, jveritas!! The net is closing and the fools who parrot the talking points for the DNC and Saddam's Baghdad Bob may finally face the reckoning."
I second the motion. If enough of these documents see the light of day. The burden is heavy on this administration, and all neutral and conservative news sources to start assembling into "clear cases", what we continue to read in some times isolated form. We need able authors to get this stuff into book form and on the shelves of American book stores.
Surely the L/MSM will do it's best to only report isolated things they can with clever words challenge the validity of the over all plans Saddam had to reconstitute all his wmd programs.
Most Freepers and other conservative sites do not have to be convinced. Many of us have followed this stuff prior to the invasion in essence. The masses must be informed somewhere along the line.

Indeed in document ISGQ-2003-00044424 the one reseracher told the Industrial Commission that SODIUM CYANIDE was not allowed to be produced locally but despite his warning he was bypassed by higher ups and the Sodium Cyanide was mentioned in a later memo that it is a material to be produced locally.

I remember a thread about our troops finding some potassium cyanide very early on. (Along with all the "pesticides".)

There were a couple of people valiantly trying to legitimize Saddam's need for potassium cyanide on that thread.

IOW, liberals.

Some try to justify the need to Potassium Cyanide as a material that can also be used for civilian industries but Iraq was only allowed to import the material under very strict UN regulations and they need to show where it was used. They were absolutely prohibited from manufacturing it locally in Iraq but these documents definitely indicate that they were planning to produce it locally with other Chemical weapon precursors that are listed in my original post. Note that these were in these documents are from the years 2000 and early 2002 where there no UN inspectors in Iraq because they were kicked out from there by Saddam Regime in December 1998. So President Bush and the Intelligence were correct by saying that Saddam was working on reestablishing his WMD programs, these documents clearly prove it.

The intent to produce or begin producing various nasties was in the Dulfer report as well as David Kay's.

The driveby media studiously avoided acknowleging that.

What's truly galling about the "no WMD" canard is that the very Duellfer report used to promulgate the "no WMD" talking point had as a main conclusion that Saddam was mantaining the infrastructure and knowledge to resume production as soon as sanctions were lifted.

So, either he could hand a vial (?) of sarin to al-Qaeda in 2003 or he'd have to wait till, oh, 2007 or 8.

I suppose we'd be less dead in the latter case.

The president, unlike his teenaged predecessor, did his job and did not kick the problem down the road to the next guy.

That's a leader. That's a MAN.
