Wikileaks documents show WMDs found in Iraq
Hot Air ^ | October 23, 2010 | ED MORRISSEY

In this case, the surprise isn’t the data but the source. Wikileaks’ new release from purloined files of the Department of Defense may help remind people that, contrary to popular opinion and media memes, the US did find weapons of mass destruction in Iraq, and in significant quantities. While the invasion of Iraq didn’t find huge stockpiles of new WMDs, it did uncover stockpiles that the UN had demanded destroyed as a condition of the 1991 truce that Saddam Hussein abrogated for twelve years (via Instapundit):

An initial glance at the WikiLeaks war logs doesn’t reveal evidence of some massive WMD program by the Saddam Hussein regime — the Bush administration’s most (in)famous rationale for invading Iraq. But chemical weapons, especially, did not vanish from the Iraqi battlefield. Remnants of Saddam’s toxic arsenal, largely destroyed after the Gulf War, remained. Jihadists, insurgents and foreign (possibly Iranian) agitators turned to these stockpiles during the Iraq conflict — and may have brewed up their own deadly agents.

WMD’s??? In Iraq? No way...

Sorry.. the mantra has been established on this one. Didn’t you get the memo? “Bush lied, people died”...

I nearly lost my relationship with my father debating that load of crap.

MSM will not breathe a word of it.

I wonder if those docs are being put back into hiding as I type this?

No one has exposed or explained what was in the large convoy of trucks moved out of Iraq prior to our invasion.

I always thought the WMD’s had gone to Syria or some other country. Iran maybe?

Actually, if I recall correctly, the Russians did.

What if they gave a wikileak and nobody came... or cared... or was surprised? Or worse, if it gave a lie to an established liberal left / MSM narrative on "Iraq"?

You know they must be in trouble and in CYA mode when the biggest headlines from AP are like this:
Leaked Iraq War Files Portray Weak, Divided Nation
Leaked Iraq war logs highlight risk that scheduled US military pullout could lead to chaos
- AP, by Robert Burns, 2010 October 24

You know... I’ve been wondering where all the media interest was for this story? I’ve been looking for some “in-depth” analysis of this ‘massive’ leak.... haven’t seen a whole lot.

That tells me: Nothing in there fits the liberal media template.
