DoD Report: 50 Trucks Carried Iraqi WMD To Syria
Sweetness & Light ^ | July 28, 2006 | N/A

Posted on 07/28/2006 1:42:19 PM PDT by Sam Hill

The following is a translation of a newly posted Iraqi document done by an unofficial translator. The document, posted in Arabic, is from a Department Of Defense program. It is dated July 13 -- probably 2003.

In it an Iraqi opposition source (a Kurd) working in Syria reports on the movement of Iraqi trucks to Syria before the start of the US invasion of Iraq. It is his understanding that the trucks contained proscribed weapons of mass destruction.

Gen. Tommy Franks himself leans this way, telling the media that "Two days before the war, on March 17 [2003], we saw through multiple intelligence channels - both human intelligence and technical intelligence, large caravans of people and things, including some of the top 55 [most wanted] Iraqis, going to Syria."

Thanks. I have confidence that W has a good reason, he has demonstrated in other areas a willingness to take a hit and hold his tongue. A trait that I sure do not have!

There's more than few articles out there detailing that the fmr head of geospatial command watched lots of trucks go to Syria. There's also reports from an undersec of def saying the same. There's reports from Israel saying same. There's pics of hundreds of trucks at the border in the ISG report, and of course...there's Gen Sada:

Might help if Bush, Rice, Rove, Snow, anyone in the Administration would push the point.

What point? That a convoy of 50 Iraqi WMD trucks rolled into Syria right under their noses? The Administration got suckered into dealing with Iraq on a Democrat/UN timetable, and will be blamed for all of the consequences of that mistake.

Fifty trucks is a long convoy, tough to miss on satelite images

MARCH 2003 : (THIS IS THE TIME IRAQ MOVED 'UNSPECIFIED MATERIALS' TO SYRIA,' INCLUDING SOME COMPONENTS OF IRAQ'S WMD PROGRAMS, ACCORDING TO LATER REPORT BY DR. DAVID KAY) - "Kay says some Iraq weapons in Syria: report,"AFP, Sunday, January 25, 2004. 1:00pm (AEDT) via http://www.abc.net.au/news/newsitems/s1031270.htm

2003 : (US SATELLITES SPOT SUBSTANTIAL VEHICULAR TRAFFIC GOING FROM IRAQ TO SYRIA JUST PRIOR TO US ATTACK ON MARCH 19, 2003- See WEAPONS INSPECTOR DAVID KAY) "In his testimony before Congress last year, weapons inspector Kay said U.S. satellite surveillance showed substantial vehicular traffic going from Iraq to Syria just prior to the U.S. attack on March 19, 2003." 47 posted on 04/18/2004 11:38:09 AM PDT by Maria S

In a briefing for journalists reported on October 29, 2003, the director of the National Imagery and Mapping Agency said satellite images showed a heavy flow of traffic from Iraq into Syria just before the American invasion in March 2003. Retired Air Force Lieutenant General James Clapper Jr. said he believed "unquestionably" that illicit weapons material was transported into Syria and perhaps other countries. He said "I think people below the Saddam- Hussein-and-his-sons level saw what was coming and decided the best thing to do was to destroy and disperse. ... I think probably in the few months running up to the onset of the conflict, I think there was probably an intensive effort to disperse into private hands, to bury it, and to move it outside the country's borders." ----------------- "Iraqi Chemical Weapons," http://www.globalsecurity.org/wmd/world/iraq/

In an exclusive interview with The Sunday Telegraph published on January 25, 2004, Dr. David Kay, the former head of the Iraq Survey Group, said there was evidence that unspecified materials had been moved to Syria shortly before the start of the war to overthrow Saddam. "We are not talking about a large stockpile of weapons," he said. "But we know from some of the interrogations of former Iraqi officials that a lot of material went to Syria before the war, including some components of Saddam's WMD programme. Precisely what went to Syria, and what has happened to it, is a major issue that needs to be resolved."---------------------- "Iraqi Chemical Weapons," http://www.globalsecurity.org/wmd/world/iraq/

Sam, I am a bit skeptical on this one. A convoy of fifty trucks just before the invasion?

Translation indicates the 50 trucks were in multiple convoys(plural) or groups. So 5 convoys of 10 trucks each might not be so obvious, and 10 convoys of 5 trucks each would be barely noticeable, if spread out a bit in time. (Hours not days).
