Crappy article! WMDs? What does that mean? Sarin, XV, Mustard, Anthrax, Nuclear weapons?

Sounds like the writer assumes most of us read all the reports back in the beginning of the long truck convoy, caught on aerial, out of Iraq and the airlift - and the reports by some of those involved that this was a mass-movement of Saddam's WMD's = and that much ended up in Bekka Valley.,

For anyone who had their head in the sand or the bias blocker on back then, there are copious articles on the net - but just for sh*ts and giggles, here's one that mentions the tie in with this article:

http://www.probush.com/ryan_wmd_question.htm

excerpt: "The bulk of the weapons would later be transferred between January and March 2003 from Baghdad, Tikrit and al-Qaim. Some would be stored among Syria's own weapons, particularly at an army base north of Damascus, while the rest was shipped to Lebanon's Bekka Valley, where they were put in holes 20-26 feet across and 82-115 feet deep. The holes were dug in poppy and cotton fields, in the valley stretching between Jabal Akroum, the town of al-Qbayyat and the Syrian border. Weapons were also hidden at the area between the towns of al-Hirmil and al-Labwah between the Orontes River and the Syrian border. According to several sources, Israeli satellite photos were given to the West prove this.

Sometimes, unless one is unwilling to loosen their bias blocker, it's educational to do a bit of research before opining.

Sorry if this upsets someones "Bush Lied" mantra. (No, I'm not. I lied.)

Errrrr... Define WMDs. That's a generic term. It could mean biological, chemical, or nuclear. The article is meaningless without WMDs defined.
