A national defense analyst says President Bush should be commended for keeping quiet about a discovery that could have blown his critics out of the water.
Retired Major General Jerry Curry is a decorated combat veteran who served as an Army aviator, paratrooper, and Ranger during a military career that began during the Korean conflict. He recently wrote on his blog about a very under reported story by the Associated Press.
According to the report, a large stockpile of concentrated natural Uranium, known as "yellowcake," reached a Canadian port to complete a top secret U.S. Operation that included a two-week airlift from Baghdad, and a ship voyage crossing two oceans. The Uranium material had been housed at a former Iraqi nuclear complex 12 miles from Baghdad.
Curry says the president kept mum about the discovery in order to keep terrorists in the dark. "He made a very brave stand, a resolute stand..., in which he decided that he wasn't going to blab everything to the press," Curry commends. "...And in the meantime while he kept it quiet, he was buying time from the terrorists to get all that stuff out of the country. So that's what was done -- he just very quietly kept his mouth shut."
"The press beat him to death for the last several years," he continues, "and now it turns out that, yes, there were weapons of mass destruction...." Curry also maintains that Saddam Hussein had an active nuclear program and the material could have been made into a nuclear weapon.
President Bush's actions took courage, he notes, and all Americans should be thankful to have such a brave president who puts the welfare of the American people above personal considerations.

And because conservatives were too damned afraid of the media they refused to pursue the reports that the Russians aided Iraq 6 weeks prior to our attack in removing a ton of weapons and WMD into Syria....
think this will get any airtime this week?
Is this the yellow cake uranium that Bush had Colin Powell lie about?......
Wonder if this if going to be reported by any of the networks.
We need serious confirmation of this.
Will this news be anywhere else besides Truth or Fiction and Free Republic?
They will just adjust slightly - “As of now there are no WMD in Iraq”. That’s how it will be reported if at all.
And now we get to enjoy the sounds of crickets chirping.
Thank you President Bush for your loyal service to this nation and the great men and women who serve under your command.
It is the most amazing differential of good service to ungrateful attitudes that my mind can imagine. To think we live in this each day is astounding.
Jefferson was right: “ Indeed I tremble for my country when I reflect that God is just,”
have no idea why it posts three times - sorry
This refers to a CBS report. Can anyone find such a thing.
If there is some kind of documentation, this is a more than Drudge-worthy story!
If this article is true, why didn’t the Bush administration try to get the word out? If could have helped Republicans hold on to the House and Senate in 2006 and it would reduce the other side’s arguments of “Bush lied - kids died” to the ghoulish propaganda that we have always known it to be.
Is it possible that George W. Bush is working for the other side? As President Bush himself would say “That doesn’t make any sense.”
Vote for John McCain/Sarah Palin on November 4th!
No s—t! How many dirty bombs does that work out to?
It doesn’t take ten minutes to convert this material into a dirty bomb. You basically put some dynamite with it, and there you are. You have a dirty bomb.
One terrorist carrying this stuff into Israel could cause massive fatalities, and sickness.
What if this was used in car bombs. You could cause a dirty region that would spread out over multiple blocks in a city.
This will be secreted away, nothing here, move along, move along...
This stuff was known before the war and was under IAEA seal. America secured the site early in the war. This isn’t news.
President Bush has punished us with being terror attack free for all these years.
That cannot be allowed to stand.
Well, it wasn’t weapons... it was yellowcake. I hardly see how that rises to the level of imminent threat.
The leftists in Congress will publicly apologize soon for being traitors and undermining the ware effort and the commander-in-chief and step down in shame due to pressure from their patriotic constituents. /dreamstate
