If it is true, as a cursory initial reading of these files suggest, that Saddam was the secret partner of Usama Bin Laden, then the history of terrorism will have to be rewritten.
Another nugget in the closing paragraphs that exposes another potential liberal lie.
Good post and good links.
Ok. You’re about the 4th or 5th person to tell me this.
Therefore I find I am publicly humbled and humiliated by my seeming lack of common sense and diminished capacity to see the obvious.
I am not worthy to be called a ‘thinking’ conservative..
Ok....all better now.... :0)
The existence of the documents is indisputable but Bush will not publicize them and MSM firmly ignores them because they do not suit MSM’s constructed reality. Even Fox is uninterested. More and more Fox is only nominally “fair and balanced.”
Merry Christmas to you too, MU.
The World Tribune reported on Perricos's briefing. "He said the Iraqi facilities were dismantled and sent both to Europe and around the Middle East at the rate of about 1,000 tons of metal a month... The Baghdad missile site contained a range of WMD and dual-use components, UN officials said. They included missile components, reactor vessel and fermenters ... required for the production of chemical and biological warheads. 'It raises the question of what happened to the dual-use equipment, where is it now and what is it being used for,' Perricos's spokesman, said. 'You can make all kinds of pharmaceutical and medicinal products with a fermenter. You can also use it to breed anthrax.'"
Retired Air Force Lt. Gen. James Clapper, head of the National Imagery and Mapping Agency, said vehicle traffic photographed by U.S. spy satellites indicated that material and documents related to the arms programs were shipped to Syria."
"Last month Moshe Yaalon, who was Israel's top general at the time, said Iraq transported WMD to Syria six weeks before Operation Iraqi Freedom began.
Last March, John A. Shaw, a former U.S. deputy undersecretary of defense for international technology security, said Russian Spetsnaz units moved WMD to Syria and Lebanon's Bekaa Valley.
"While in Iraq I received information from several sources naming the exact Russian units, what they took and where they took both WMD materials and conventional explosives," Mr. Shaw told NewsMax reporter Charles Smith.
Retired Marine Lt. Gen. Michael DeLong was deputy commander of Central Command during Operation Iraqi Freedom. In September 2004, he told WABC radio that "I do know for a fact that some of those weapons went into Syria, Lebanon and Iran."
In January 2004, David Kay, the first head of the Iraq Survey Group which conducted the search for Saddam's WMD, told a British newspaper there was evidence unspecified materials had been moved to Syria from Iraq shortly before the war.
"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 program," Mr. Kay told the Sunday Telegraph.
Also that month, Nizar Nayuf, a Syrian journalist who defected to an undisclosed European country, told a Dutch newspaper he knew of three sites where Iraq's WMD was being kept. They were the town of al Baida near the city of Hama in northern Syria; the Syrian air force base near the village of Tal Snan, and the city of Sjinsar on the border with Lebanon.
In an addendum to his final report last April, Charles Duelfer, who succeeded David Kay as head of the Iraq Survey Group, said he couldn't rule out a transfer of WMD from Iraq to Syria.
"There was evidence of a discussion of possible WMD collaboration initiated by a Syrian security officer, and ISG received information about movement of material out of Iraq, including the possibility that WMD was involved. In the judgment of the working group, these reports were sufficiently credible to merit further investigation," Mr. Duelfer said."
"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).
"We are not talking about a large stockpile of weapons," he said. "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. Precisely what went to Syria, and what has happened to it, is a major issue that needs to be resolved."
"Two days before the war, on March 17th, we saw through multiple intelligence channels - both human intelligence and techinical (satellite,eavesdrop) intelligence - large caravans of people and things, including some of the top 55 Iraqis, going to Syria."

SIDEBAR: Have a quick, shocked read about Issa, the name for Jesus in Islam and how He is perceived.
That’s just one interpretation.
Thanks for the info, FRiend.........
Nope. Doesn't work that way. The Democrats told the truth as they knew it at the time... /sarc
True - ‘cuz the “facts don’t matter” As quoted by a prominent DUmmie
Very very good info thanks again.
“Thanks, that was the first country I thought of. Wonder whats going on there with all those caves. I dont know much about Syria, they took the daughter of Saddam (I think) in. It is possible some are there anyway and the leader wouldnt necessary have to know?”
They’re hiding a lot of stuff in those caves. And yeah they did grant amnesty to saddam’s daughter.
assad knows everything about what’s going on within his borders.
And even weapons and jihadi’s that are “just passin’ through” don’t do so without his knowledge or permission.
Yes, I always thought that picture sure looked like saddam was taking credit for 9/11, ‘course that gubmint commission said that wasn’t true and nobody was to blame. Nuthin’ to see here, move along!
Thanks for the ping!
Another SIDEBAR - sarcastic post partly triggered by the death of lions in Iraqi zoo after we went in.
Mr. President The leader the Moujahed Saddam Hussein, God protects and shepherd him
The emblem says: Allah protects Iraq and Saddam
As jveritas noted "a picture is stronger than words".
Note also that these two things: 1) As far as I remember (I haven't looked for the reference) this painting was found in a campus connected to an air force school. 2) In one of the documents jveritas translated the authorities were looking for pilot "mujaheedins". The document was pre-911, and it was considered by those who know such things that it was directed against Israel. But are we really sure? No real evidence, but enough to make you wonder.
That picture does seem a bit too convient to discount as bluster.
Thank you FARS.
Ask the families of 50,000 nerve-gassed Kurds if they think Saddam had WMDs.
Thanks for the ping!
This pretty much closes up the WMD issue for Iraq as far as I am concerned. The outcome is pretty much what I expected and what has been rumored since 2003—the WMD’s went to Syria.
The one remaining loose end is what happened to the contents of the underground storage facility under the Euphrates.
“The one remaining loose end is what happened to the contents of the underground storage facility under the Euphrates.”
That and did the Israelis obliterate all the stuff that went up north in Syria.
self ping for after self feeding
Self ping for later reading.
The propaganda machine of the left has totally convinced the masses that there were NO WMDs in Iraq. Sorry to say that it won’t matter what proof to the contrary shows up. It will be buried by the media and laughed at by the imbeciles on the left.reality matters little these days and we all know it .
“It will be buried by the media and laughed at by the imbeciles on the left.”
Perhaps. But it will be recoded in history and there will be some of us who knw the real truth.
There are a lot of idiot newbie political people who Also believe the lie that the liberal media has told the nation - that ‘Bush Lied and People Died.’ These people who just started getting involved in politics - some of them Tea Party people - are so full of hatred toward Bush - it is disgusting that they believe the lies of the Left! And they will not listen to even this new news.
