March 2003 Iraqi Document: Orders to Hide Weapons In Underground Shelters (Pentagon Translation)
Pentagon/FMSO website for Iraq Pre-war documents http://70.168.46.200/ ^ | September 25 2006 | Pentagon Translators

Posted on 09/25/2006 12:30:48 PM PDT by jveritas

Document CMPT-2004-001810-T.pdf was posted in its English translation on the Pentagon/ FMSO website. It contains top secret letters dated March 2003 few days before the start of the Iraq war. The top secret letters were order to Hide and Conceal Equipments and Devices Underground in Hidden Shelters and especially the weapons and devices that are not currently in operations but can be used in the future. What are these weapons that are ordered to be hidden and are not currently in operation but can be used in the future? Most probably these are either finalized form of WMD or precursors to make WMD when the moment is right. This is one of the most important Iraqi documents published so far.

2. The use of shelters that provide complete concealment and would completely hide the weapons, equipment and devices underground (as applied at the beginning of Gulf War I) has been authorized. As applied at the beginning of Gulf War I, this will make them hard-to-find targets for the enemy’s air force, especially weapons and devices not currently in operation at this time which may be brought into operation in the future. In the event that there is insufficient roofing material, begin with the most important priorities.

Have we even found any underground facilities? I recall one with some hallways and rooms, but I would assume thruout Iraq there would be more.

I ma sure that there are many underground shelters or weapons burial sites that we did not uncover yet. Iraq is the size of California, unless we get very lucky or get a tip from someone or find some documents, we will not know about where the WMD or Precursors for WMD were found.

"This can't be true, it didn't happen, Rove forged this, what me worry?, I've never seen this in the press, not even the WSJ editorial page, blah blah blah." There, now all the Democrats can relax because I have just given them all the talking points they need to refute this discovery. Of course, the facts are on the side of the existence, concealment, and dispersal of WMDs by Saddam, but when have facts affected DNC talking points?

I'm glad you caught this one. I had spotted it a few days ago but neglected to bookmark it.

My feeling is this order is important (primarily) because it proves a chain of command reaching from the top to military,to the Fedayeen Saddam, to the al-Quds (Palestinian) Martyrs brigades....although it might explain small hideouts discovered, containing VX in one and a small flash dryer in another.

All were under 1 command.

By the way, when Iraqis refer to the 1st Gulf War, they are talking about the Iraq/Iran war; the 2nd to them was Desert Storm; and the present conflict is #3.

In addition to WMDs, this document could be referring to devices such as IEDs and other conventional weapons. In any event, I am not going to give these Saddamites the benefit of any doubt.

I think from the context of the letters, the mentioned 1st Gulf war is what we call operation Desert Storm. Also the Iraqis had different name for the wars they fought under Saddam. For example they called the war with Iran “The Glorified Qadisia of Saddam” and they called Operation Desert storm “The Mother of All Battles” or “The Thirties Aggression” referring to the alliance of the 30 nations against Iraq in operation Desert Storm. These names of the wars had been used in many Iraqi documents.

I remember reading somewhere that Saddam was obsessed with building as many bunkers as possible and there might be hundreds of them as much as a hundred or so feet underground.

Do we have these three whose names are on these letters in custody? Sounds like they could use a good dose of water boarding to "persuade" them to give us the location of every bunker that was used to hide Saddam's weapons.

Staff Colonel Abd-al-Qadir" from this link it would appear to be Saddam's first cousin, and the father of Husayn Kamil, who became Saddam's son-in-law, then defected with knowledge of WMD programs, and was killed by Hussein after returning to Iraq:

For those keeping score at home, the 1st letter was written eight days before the first U. S, attacks on Hussein, in Operation Decapitation, which was the day before Shock and Awe began.

You are right. These documents have some very interesting information on WMD's, Al Quida connections etc. and they are being ignored for the most part. I would think that Fox News and more conservative talk show hosts would mention them more often. They refute the dimocRAT talking points.
