Panetta: We’ve Lost Track of Syrian Chemical Weapons
FP ^

Posted on 09/28/2012 12:19:33 PM PDT by Perdogg

The U.S. has lost track of some of Syria’s chemical weapons, Defense Secretary Leon Panetta said Friday, and does not know if any potentially lethal chemicals have fallen into the hands of Syrian rebels or Iranian forces inside the country.

“There has been intelligence that there have been some moves that have taken place. Where exactly that’s taken place, we don’t know.” Panetta said, in a Pentagon press briefing.

“Maybe have Valarie Plame and Joe Wilson look into it. They are experts.”

Oh, man... send them to Syria - “Steven’s Style” - and see what they can dig up.

Oh, to be President for a day and organize some fact-finding missions....

you are correct. We had and have been told the stockpiles were secure. They lied. Thus there are those out there too.

Not too surprising, since you apparently also lost track of them when they belonged to Iraq’s Saddam.

Leon.....

Go to Home Depot or for really cheap, Harbor Freight and buy some knee pads. Then fly to Tel Aviv and call up Bibi. If you grovel on your knees adequately, he will tell you where the weapons are.

Alternatively, go to the Kingdom and grovel at the majlis of King Abdullah. He knows where they are also

How do you keep track of something you denied existed in the first place?

panetta could do the same in iran. They know too. imadinnerjacket would love it, since imadinnerjacket is a homo. Would have to believe the mullahs would love it too. Though imadinnerjacket would love it the most.

Don’t worry Leo, the lovely great Muslim Brotherhood that you so admire will let you know where they are soon.
Just like that great get together they did in Libya with our ambassador.

Let me point out:

The Libyan upheaval also loosed 15,000 SA-25 Grinch MANPDADS anti-aircraft missiles onto the black market —THAT is what that SEAL was trying to recover when he tried to protect the Ambassador (but got zapped).

So:

AQ might have chemical weapons now but also the ability to take down civilian airliners. I mean they might have that capability FOR YEARS and it’s possible the authorities will require laser dazzlers on aircraft or at some node near high risk airports.

Or require that only aircraft of certain types (protected ones with dazzlers) land at certain airports.

Golly, Jimmuh told us that the Ayatollah was holy man. Sure, Jimmah has the wisdom of a box of rocks, but hey...

He must mean the WMD that Saddam sumggled to Syria to avoid weapons inspectors.

"Andre. You've lost another submarine?"

One of my favorite scenes.
