Hmmmm... 5,500 KG.

Iraq would have to have reported importing that much Phosphorus Pentasulfide. This would be reported to the people handling the oil-for-food program. I wonder if they have a record of 5,500 KGs or more of Phosphorus Pentasulfide?

And we all know how "legit" the oil-for-food program was run!

I hope you are able to keep all the translations in a nice tidy file. They, collectively, will be very valuable for our side.

Is there any documentation that's emerged from Saddam's intelligence files documenting his 1993 non-aggression pact with Al Qaeda and Bin Laden? I keep pointing out this non-aggression pact as evidence against the liberal-left's mistaken idea that "Saddam and Bin Laden loathed one another." If there was some evidence of it from Saddam's own files, that could be compelling.

My only concern is that many of these chemicals have legitimate roles in organic synthesis. It is indeed suspicious that multi-ton orders were arranged, and no mention of alternative uses wsa given. It would be interesting to see if what they claim these materials were intended for actually make sense from a chemistry perspective. They certainly could not be used in the Baby Milk Factory (tm).

Awesome work, jveritas.

Precursor chemicals, and we know that the Iraqis had the recipe to make the finished VX nerve gas.

I'd say that 5500 kilos is more than enough to provide terrorists with small quantities.

I'm puzzled by the note, though. I appears first that the communication is actually a second note.

In regards to the phone conversation, the local material from the list sent according to our letter 215 on 9/11 were brought back so please replace with the attached list.

The first note must have sent "other material." They appear to be saying they got those other materials through "LOCAL" sources. They want another order instead of what they had originally requested.

This appears to verify that there were LOCAL materials available to them.

Since this list is all precursor material, then one can assume that the LOCAL material could also be precursor to WMDs.

If so, that's huge. Do you have access to "215 on 9/11?"

While I appreciate the significance of this document, I have some reservations about it since dozens of commonly used chemicals can be considered "precursors" to chemical weapons. One of the labs I worked in had cautions in place because phosgene was a by-product of our work.

The quantity is rather curious.

5.5 kg of the stuff would be on the same order of magnitude as the other items on the list. On the other hand (as someone who used to order chemicals frequently), no one would order a quantity with such precision. The precision is out-of-line with the other items on the list.

Could this be an attempt to "sneak one by"?

GPR = general purpose reagent

What do you think the numbers before each chemical represent?

One of Phosphorus Pentasulfide's primary uses in industry is in the manufacture of zinc dialkyldithiophosphates additives for high performance lubricants. It also is used in the manufacture of insecticides.
Phosphorus pentasulfide can be used to introduce a phosphorus bonded to a sulfur into an organic compound, such as V-type nerve agents including VX.
In the first case. I can see a valid use BUT. Did Iraq even have any chemical companies that specialized in the manufacturing of lubricants? I doubt it. It would have been cheaper to simply get their lubricants from well known world wide distributors.
In the second case. Was it to be used in the manufacturing of a given type insecticde that would require it to be in the chemical manufacturing stage? Again. One must know if their petrochemical plants or a specialty chemical company actually manufatured insectides or did Iraq simply purchase their herbicides, fumicides, and insecticides from abroad.
Which takes us to the one you went to the trouble of zeroing in on. In a lab they could have used it for making VX nerve gas.

None of this matters since Valerie Plame looked and looked and couldn't find any evidence of it before the war. She even sent her husband to check it out, and all he found was a decent cup of tea.

So, these documents were obviously planted by Scooter Libby.

P.R.O.P.* Ping!

...to Jveritas' EXCELLENT work in translating recovered Iraqi memos and documents from Saddam's regime. This one is especially salient because it concerns dual-use VX nerve gas chemical precursors.

Further indications that George W Bush's administration was right in overthrowing Saddam, as well as their timing being perhaps crucial in prohibiting a chemical warfare candystore opening up for the likes of Alqaeda, Hamas, hezb'allah, etc...

Thank you jveritas!

A.A.C.

Great work! Thousands of pages of these documents and the MSM is still ignoring the facts.
