A lot of people have said this is what happened, including somebody who should know;

Ex-Official: Russia Moved Saddam's WMD

"The short answer to the question of where the WMD Saddam bought from the Russians went was that they went to Syria and Lebanon," former Deputy Undersecretary of Defense John A. Shaw told an audience Saturday at a privately sponsored "Intelligence Summit" in Alexandria, Va. (www.intelligencesummit.org).

"They were moved by Russian Spetsnaz (special forces) units out of uniform, that were specifically sent to Iraq to move the weaponry and eradicate any evidence of its existence," he said.

Shaw has dealt with weapons-related issues and export controls as a U.S. government official for 30 years, and was serving as deputy undersecretary of defense for international technology security when the events he described today occurred.

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...
