Anyone here remember the satalite photos of Sadam's elite security force escorting the convoys to and across the Syrian border right befor the war?

Remember the first criticism of Bush was that he let Sadam move his weapons into Syria before the Bush lied meme came about?

Or did I just dream that part?

If they find warehouse of WMD’s with “Made in Iraq” printed on them I’ll bet it will never be uttered in the MSM.

Rule #1 - Never give Bush credit for being right.

This whole episode has a “through the looking glass” feel.

couple your post with 500+ lbs of fissionable material that was found in Iraq (which the Canadians recently took custody of)and the case for war was more than made.

Was that when Saddam's Russian advisers were fleeing Iraq?

No you lied, to yourself. Every right thinking American knows that the whole thing was cooked up by Cheney to increase Haliburton profits. No one, I repeat NO ONE in the mid east has any weapons of mass destruction. Anyone who says otherwise is a racist.

actually I remember it exactly as you do

Either way, Syria had gas weapons, I do believe, long before that.

They have always been a problem. Lotsa SCUDs and launchers.

I was posting links on it (elsewhere) back in 1997 and 1998.

Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said she supported more sanctions on the Assad regime but she declined to endorse any direct help to the Syrian opposition without the consent of the Syrian government, saying only, "We all need to look hard at what more we can do."

And why is Hillary stone-walling in not helping the opposition?

If Syria falls and WMD becomes the story, it will follow that the origins of the WMD (from Iraq) will come out. Then the old mantra of "Bush lied" decimates the whole DNC platform on the Iraq War.

What are Obama/Hillary to do?

Ukashat

Ref.: (in part): Mining Annual Review(1985):469. A phosphate mine producing about 1 million tons/year. Started 1982.
420 km West of Baghdad on the border with Syria. Also the main uranium mine of Iraq, associated with the Al-Qaim plant.

Second Message to Nizar Nayuf “Dear Nizar. I have sent you another chart of the positions which tells where the weapons which were sent from Iraq into Syria, are hidden. Because the preceding chart that I sent you earlier is not clear. Until now, the authorities in Syria did not worry of what was being published by the Dutch television news about this subject. New information: The weapons were evacuated by the means of ambulances. Mohammed Mansoura also took part in the operation. There are other serious, detailed pieces of information concerning the money of Saddam being moved into Syria and into Lebanon and those who took part in moving it – Syrians and Lebanese.Also there are more details about the assassination of the General Moustapha Tajer which took place last summer.

Take care of yourself.

Damascus, January 7, 2004.”

You are exactly right and Iraqi general George Sada says the same thing. Sada was Hussein’s air force general during the first Gulf War.

I’ve read his book, “Sadam’s Secrets”, and heard him speak after a church service.

It is fascinating reading. He says Hussein trusted him because he was s Christian and wouldn’t BS him. Hussein’s kitchen staff was also Christian to protect him from subversives who would try to poison him.

The Syrian transfer is all here:

that's a joke

those countries know far more about the Iraq/Syrian WMD’s weaponry than Obama/Clinton. What the administration knows probably came from Israel and several ME countries.

Bush is the one who said there were no WDM in Iraq. He is the one who enhanced and affirmed the Left’s “liar” chant.

We saw what was said to be convoys of trucks going into Syria from Iraq leading up to the war and we were urged to assume Iraq were moving WDM over there. Russian military was involved, if the reports were true.

I imagine Syria has it’s own supply of WMD and maybe added Iraq’s. We don’t know. Bush was a pitiful communicator. Which is why we should not listen to Jeb as he tells everyone to shut up.

..................Remember the first criticism of Bush was that he let Sadam move his weapons into Syria.................

Remember the night photo’s that Coleen Powell presented to the UN that showed convoys of trucks heading east into Syria.

The UN forgot, and he forgot, and then allowed Bush to hang tough all by himself, when no WMD’s were found in Iraq after six months of dicking around about Iraq before taking them out!

It was a dream we all had.

And I guess we’re going to have a sequel.
