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.

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

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

George Soros is not helping Assange...after this, he definitely is working with the Globalists to arrest and execute Soros.

In my opinion, Assange is a free radical, not associated with much of anything.

The information releases have been all-encompassing and I don’t understand the bizarre rage/happy bipolar crap I keep seeing on FR as people sift through the documents.

Bush never adequately defended himself. It was if he had other fish to fry, like fight a war. The information was out there, but the MSM was ignoring it and Bush refused to take the bully pulpit and shame the press. BTW: The MSM will ignore it this time, also!

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....

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.

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.

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."

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...

I am hoping for a Wikileaks victory against the web repressors, and for others “anarchists’ to pick up the load.

This is a important battle for freedom, just as the Pirates of Caribbean established the groundwork for a survivable American Revolution, so do these anarchists.

Yesterday I pointed out that the only citizens in uniform to pointedly and publicly refuse to salute Hitler and Mussolini were the Italian anarchists, and their uniforms were prison uniforms. Why didn’t all the other officials refuse ! ! ! ? ? ?

Yep. I started floating the theory right after the invasion that the reason any stories of WMD facilities were being spiked was just for that reason. Saddam had over 10,000 weapons depots. The LAST thing we needed was to be in some kind of race with Al Queda to scrounge up some chemical or bio weapons, all spread out allah-knows-where. It seemed logical to me that it was in our best interest to say instead that there were no WMDs. One reason I was so suspicious of this was that it seemed like the announcement of "no WMD's" came out ~awfully~ early... long before we could have actually searched all those thousands of locations. It would meand that Bush would have to fall on his sword and take the personal hit for it, but I do think he would do that if that's what was necessary.

“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....”

This is the explanation that makes the most sense on why the Bush administration did not advertise the WMD finds. Also, it is possible there are still some in Iraq.

Oh, I'm sure he's capable of stealing the info. That generation is fairly adept with respect to computers. I question HOW a PFC was able to obtain security clearance to access the files, AND who put him up to it, AND what was the payoff?

Because as long as the Jihadists and their allies were getting positive help from the idea that “Bush lied” and “Intelligence was sexed up” and all of those media statements, they were unlikely to blow all of that positive press by using WMDs. Letting the misinformation stand, letting the enemy get a propaganda advantage out of using the misinformation, helped stop them using the weapons and blowing that advantage.

Better a politician be called a fool or even a liar, than soldiers die because he protected his reputation.

And they knew it would all come out in the end anyway.

You know the left didn’t start hating Assange until he said 9/11 was not a conspiracy. He also said he wasn’t against war. After that they started saying he was CIA some even suggested he was a Republican plant.

He also made the mistake of telling on the Arab’s wanting Iran taken out. The “social democrats” like the rape accusers in Sweden are very much against any war and are angry that Sweden’s had troops in Afghanistan under NATO’s Partnership for Peace program.

I think there is more to this story.

Glen Beck’s take on the accusers brings up the social democrats.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WQUYfSo1i2E&feature=player_embedded#!

“I’m constantly annoyed that people are distracted by false conspiracies such as 9/11, when all around we provide evidence of real conspiracies, for war or mass financial fraud,” Assange told The Belfast Telegraph in an interview published July 19.

http://www.therightperspective.org/2010/08/04/wikileaks-founder-annoyed-at-911-theories/

Crisis management continues to be a key task for NATO. Sweden participates at present in two NATO-led crisis management operations, in KFOR (Kosovo Force) in Kosovo and ISAF (International Security Assistance Force) in Afghanistan.
