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.
Here is one page from the pdf file showing the original document in Arabic:
My thoughts exactly.
As I discovered when I read forward.
Sorry for "piling on"...
no problem, I have done it as well!
Somewhere I have also seen the sketches done by the journalist.
Now, our intelligence sources can disclose exclusively that the relocation of Iraqs WMD systems took place between January 10 and March 10 and was completed just 10 days before the US-led offensive was launched against Iraq. The banned arsenal, hauled in giant tankers from Iraq to Syria and from there to the Bekaa Valley under Syrian special forces and military intelligence escort, was discharged into pits 6-8 meters across and 25-35 meters deep dug by Syrian army engineers. They were sealed and planted over with new seedlings. Nonetheless, their location is known and detectable with the right instruments. Our sources have learned that Syria was paid about $35 million to make Saddam Husseins forbidden weapons disappear.
Not yet. However we can probably guess at what that drunkard Putins response would be. Something like...
Do you think you are smarter then us ?
They were worth far more then that if they had simply been added to Syria's active arsenal. Saddam sent Military Jets to Iran prior to Gulf War 1.
Um, we didn't miss it, neither did the Israelis...both of us saw it via satellite...Israel approached us with it, and that kinda confirmed what we saw IIRC...(Loftus)
Does anyone else remember the 101st (IIRC) opening fire on a line of limo headed out of Baghdad toward Syria just as we were approaching the Airport area?
Anyone have a list of links to that story?
It was about the same time MSM started screaming about the museum being emptied out...
IIRC about a third of it went to the Bekaa valley in Lebanon.
Hopefully there are Israeli commando units on the ground there now searching along with our own units...
It was interesting to see Israeli soldiers in what appeared to be chem suits of some sort on FOX today....
Do not forget that the former head of the U.S. Geospatial Intelligence Agency, James Clapper told the New York Times and House of Reps that he's nearly certain WMD were moved to Syria and has the satellite photos. Getting ahold of him would be a good step
Thanks for the ping eye, and thanks for the work jveritas!
Common sense tells us this is reasonable and that all will be revealed eventually!
That's what I thought at first as well, but noone ever said Saddam wasn't a slick spin-meister. If he got away with the transfer of so much stock, it's only because an act of God occurred to provide him exactly the coverage he needed to justify such a remotely-observable convoy. So Saddam got the weapons out to a friendly Islamic government, and he got international credit for his humanitarian efforts in the face of American aggression.
bump for later comment
Thanks to you all for the excellent work that your doing...I believe they had the results of a poll recently on the news (Fox) that most people DO belive that Saddam had this stuff and that result suprised me actually...maybe the "sheeple" are coming around.
If there would be some major coverage of these docs it would give "our side" a much needed boost...which is why it's not being covered I suppose.
"The administration does not want the victims of Sept. 11 interfering with its foreign policy," says Peter M. Leitner, director of the Washington Center for Peace and Justice (WCPJ). Leitner says the Bush administration may be concerned that if other victims of the Sept. 11 attacks also filed lawsuits and won civil-damage awards it would reduce Iraqi resources that the administration wants to use to rebuild the country. Leitner and others say this explains Bush's reticence at this time to report the convincing evidence linking Saddam and al-Qaeda that has been collected by U.S. investigators and private organizations seeking damages. "The [Bush] administration is intentionally changing the topic," claims Leitner, and sidestepping the issue that "Iraq has been in a proxy war against the U.S. for years and has used al-Qaeda in that war against the United States."
Too little too late.
