Wikileaks: WMD program existed in Iraq prior to US invasion
Law Enforcement Examiner ^ | 7 December 10 | Jim Kouri

Posted on 12/07/2010 4:50:21 PM PST by LSUfan

The release by Julian Assange's web site Wikileaks of classified documents reveals that U.S. military intelligence discovered chemical weapons labs, encountered insurgents who were specialists in the creation of toxins, and uncovered weapons of mass destruction in Iraq. However, Washington, DC officials and the news media have ignored this information.

Maybe because they hadn’t found them all, maybe because some stuff did migrate out of the country ...

who knows what the strategy is/was to keeping the “finds” secret...

The other thought is, if they did or had broadcast they were finding this stuff....then what of Al Queda and the rogue insurgents going after it and using it. Could you just imagine every gang in Iraq scavenging the countryside, finding and using....

If Assange ended up missing never to be seen again, that would be a good thing.

Any American service person spending any time on any of several Iraqi bases where Germans had built very expensive labs and testing facilities could have told the lying media that Saddam was totally invested in developing (in some cases already possessing) WMD. I saw the evidence first hand.

Bradley Manning, who is in custody, stole them. Then gave them to WikiLeaks.

Nidal Malik Hasan will get off the hook. But nobody should get off the hook on this leak.

Possibly. Pirate Bay and the /b/tards are defending him. Doesn’t get more anarchistic than that.

Can’t be! That would mean Valerie “Double-O Nuthin’” Plame and Joe “Yellow Cake & Sweat Tea” Wilson are also liars, and THAT does not fit the narrative. Nothing to see here, move along.....

Finally, the word gets out about the Iraqi Biological, Nuclear and Chemical WMD program.

I have not found one person who even realizes that the AQ Khan Islamic Bomb program even existed much less how serious it was.

The press completely suppressed any evidence of these programs to intentionally destroy the Bush Administration. What the media did is criminal but the Bush Administration is as much to blame for not fighting back.

For some reason, Bush refused to stand up and fight against the media propaganda war to undermine the United States. This refusal destroyed a lot of his effectiveness as President and seriously our image world wide.

So...you so called “conservatives” still want to execute Assange, now?

I wouldn't be surprised if the libertarians want to string him up now. After all, Assange just proved the justification for Bush's Perpetual War for Oil and the Expansive Power of the State in Iraq.

Bush thought it would be demeaning to the presidency to defend himself. Apparently it never occurred to him that letting his enemies wield malicious lies unopposed had the effect of turning them into lethal "truth."

The nation has suffered grievously for the sake of Bush's pretentious posturing about his "Office."

That makes sense. It just would have helped the effort, or morale so much if you held it up and said “here it is!”, and we arent stopping until we get to Tehran.

This is like asking if you still want to stop a rabid dog who just happened to kill a rattlesnake on his way toward you.

of course they did.

W had “90 days”

With Kerry, HRC and the gang going to Turkey to prevent the pincer move, they AUTHORIZED the DEATHS of who knows how many US troops.

THESE PEOPLE ARE ENEMIES OF THE REPUBLIC.

All of them.

I will not send them lillies. Urine, maybe, but not lillies.

If Assange himself curiously goes missing, that won’t stop the other Assange’s out there from taking his place.

I don’t think Manning stole them himself. I think he had help.

I'm a so called "conservative, bigot, racist and homophobe" and I'd pull the trigger on the bastard.

I don't give a fat rat's ass, how much {or little} he helps or hurts conservatives, the bastard deserves to be executed.

Saddam gassed 5,000 Kurds in 1988. Never was any question in my mind about WMDs. Funny how this event never got a lot of mention...

The report that Hussein's sons took the WMD’s to Syria are not in the leaks so that gives you an idea as to what was not leaked.

How very interesting. I never did believe that President Bush or his administration was lying about that.

I'm with you. I never believed President Bush lied. Especially when Iraq used lethal gas to kill in their own country.
