Iraqi WMD ping.
They won't ever waste their time with anything that's true and accurate;)
BUT, now that they're in Syria, where will they go next? Heads up Israel!
Ping WMD Docs.
Nah, this looks just like that scrap of paper that Dan Rather used to nail Bush on the whole Air Guard thing. /sarc off.
ping, can you read the second doc in Arabic?
This backs up David Kays concerns from years ago.......
"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.
"The man who served as the no. 2 official in Saddam Hussein's air force says
Iraq moved weapons of mass destruction into Syria before the war by loading
the weapons into civilian aircraft in which the passenger seats were removed."
We had to have been monitoring that place constantly, plus our guys on the ground.
Fifty trucks is a long convoy, tough to miss on satelite images.
Fifty-five percent believe history will give U.S. credit for bringing freedom to Iraq.
A recent Harris Poll has found that half of Americans now say Iraq had weapons of mass destruction when the United States invaded the country in 2003 -- up from 36 percent last year. According to reporter Jennifer Harper, pollsters deemed the increase both "substantial" and "surprising," in light of persistent press reports to the contrary in recent years.
As reported in The Washington Times, other results offered positive feedback on Iraq: "Seventy-two percent of respondents said the Iraqi people are better off now than under Saddam Hussein's regime, and in addition, 64 percent say Saddam had "strong links" with al Qaeda, up from 62 percent in October 2004. Fifty-five percent said that "history will give the U.S. credit for bringing freedom and democracy to Iraq."
Also, notes Harper, "41 percent say the war has reduced the threat of another major terrorist attack in the United States, a sentiment also unchanged in the past two years." / end excerpt
It will be deinied to the end.
Even with this the media and left has spun the issue into oblivion. The administration shows no signs of revisiting the issue. I wish it was otherwise.
I believe that he also showed aerial photos showing this massive activity at the Iraq/Syria border.
Might help if Bush, Rice, Rove, Snow, anyone in the Administration would push the point.
I bet there's a mad scramble at 60 Minutes to get this story on the air this weekend...not.
kidding dreaming of course.)
I'm curious what Moharram 10th translates to on the normal calendar. Spec Op folks were already in Iraq weeks before the war. Rehearsals for raids on suspected WMD sites were no doubt conducted months in advance and those sites monitored by satellite. Any convoy of 50 trucks is going to be suspicious whether it leaves one of those sites or not. Even a convoy of 10 trucks is going to be suspicious if it's crossing into Syria soon before the war. Keep in mind that Arabs tend to exaggerate wildly. A convoy of 50 trucks filled with WMD might be, in reality, 2 bongo trucks full of watermelon.
