MEDIA ADVISORY, April 25 /Christian Newswire/ -- The trial of Scooter Libbey proved one thing: Bush and Cheney were right -- along with Bill Clinton, Tony Blair, John Kerry, and every other Democrat and responsible world leader.
Saddam Hussein WAS indeed actively working to develop and build a nuclear bomb, and posed a threat of a nuclear holocaust against American famlies. An internal memo from the U.S. State Department was declassified at the insistence of Scooter Libbey's defense attorneys (against Foggy Bottom's wishes). The memo has been posted by the ASSOCIATED PRESS at --
And the memo is fully explained at:
Although the State Department in the memo tries to downplay the risk, THE BOTTOM OF PAGE 8 AND TOP OF PAGE 9 LET SLIP the truth that Saddam Hussein was seeking uranium yellowcake -- which was clearly for development of a nuclear bomb.
So, what did we find when the curtain of anti-Bush propaganda was pulled back? The anti-war, anti-Bush U.S. State Department Department has known all along that Saddam Hussein tried to buy uranium ore (yellowcake) from the impoverished African nation of Niger.
The June 2003 Memo reveals that THEN Prime Minister of NIGER, Ibrahim Mayaki, reported to the U.S. State Department in early 2002 that Iraq tried to buy uranium "yellow cake" (ore). This information confirmed other reports such as those by "Saddam's Bomb Maker" Khidhir Hamza.
And yet Iraq already had stockpiles of uranium yellowcake... being watched by the United Nations. Iraq had no reason to buy MORE uranium... yet Iraq used scarce funds to try to buy even more -- covertly.
Therefore, Condoleeza Rice, George Bush, Dick Cheney, and everyone else had solid reasons to believe that Iraq posed a serious nuclear threat to the United States.
Following the philosophy "the enemy of my enemy is my friend," Saddam Hussein would surely have handed a functioning nuclear bomb to terrorist groups able to smuggle a nuclear warhead across America's Mexican border, and kill millions of people in a U.S. city.
Niger emphatically refused to sell Iraq the uranium. Later, forged documents emerged purporting to show that Niger agreed, even offering a forged contract. Those documents are absolutely false. NIGER NEVER AGREED.
BUT SADDAM HUSSEIN DID TRY. Saddam tried to get uranium, under the table, outside the awareness of the UN and the IAEA.
Ping for reference.
Thanks for the ping, Ma.
Being that Justa kinda covered all the bases inre to joe and his b-—h wife I’ll just add a “DITTO”. ;-)
LOL! Beat you by a minute. Different version tho.
Thanks! I didn’t see your reply before my last post to you. ;*)
BUMP for The Right Brothers!
I love that song! If you noticed the backdrop during the close up of them playing their guitars, that was the huge hand made flag we used at the Support the Troops and Their Mission Rally in 2005, where the Right Brothers performed this song live!
That video is great, I’ve seen it before and have it filed away. Thanks for the background on it, I didn’t realize that.
There is much more to it, but I can't remember it all.
I think children, maybe of deployed soldiers, made and decorated the squares and they were then sewn together to make a giant 30 foot flag. IIRC, they made this at Fort Benning.
Calling backup for help on the Huge Flag.
Coupled with the lack of interest by Bush and Co., not surprising.
Wouldn't be prudent?
Bush and OIL don't mix iuf the salad is US interests.
Bush has no more desire to fight, except maybe to screw conservatives on immigration or create Hamastan out of more of Israel.
my guess all along has been that rogue u.s. intelligence agents/staff/operatives knew/participated in/acquiesced in the production of the phony documents, and getting them into the “intelligence stream”, working with peers in other nation’s intelligence services and did so, intentionally, NOT to provide proof of the factual knowledge of Saddam’s ATTEMPTS, but to discredit THAT TRUTH by presenting a lie and then presenting that lie, falsely, as part of our claim
You can't get dumber than these two.
The AP is reporting this? I’m amazed.
