The Clinton administration spent a lot of time documenting the anthrax Iraq had which was labelled a weapon of mass destruction.
My son, who was in Iraq from summer 2006 to Nov. 2007, with his AO being south of Baghdad, commented about the WMD’s that his brigade had found.
We know as fact, since the Boston Marathon bombing, that Iraq and Saddam had WMD’s, as much as we know they had access to all kinds of pots and pans.
I remember all of this when it first broke, and then was stunned when the press kept chanting “there are NO WMD’s in Iraq.” If I remember correctly, Bush wasn’t interested in correcting the record at that time, and let the repeated lie stand -— I can’t imagine why?!?
That was the first meme, Bush let the weapons escape (after Rockefeller tipped of Assad), the second meme was that Bush lied.
Also never forget that the dems pushed for a second IWR so they could "look good"

The Ba’ath Parties in Iraq and Syria were both Soviet clients, fully equipped for large scale chemical warfare, with large stockpiles of chemical weapons.
It was pretty common in Iraq for roadside IEDs to include chemical agents, just because the kids could not tell an artillery shell carrying nerve agent from one with High Explosive. Typically, the blast from the other components of the IED would disperse or burn the chemical agent to be combat ineffective. They had mountains of chemical artillery shells, and mountains of imported uranium yellowcake to be secured and disposed of after Sadaam’s fall.
The highest concentration of Anthrax in the wild is on the former battlefields of the Iran/Iraq War - probably just a coincidence.
The only way to construe that there were no WMDs in Iraq is to only count assembled nuclear weapons as WMDs.
That lying liar Bush LIED! And people DIED!!!
There CAN’T be WMDs!!! Bush was LYING to get rich on OIL!!!
...sorry folks, I might dress as a libtard for Halloween and was just practicing...
Gotta go wash my mouth out now...
Yes, but the ‘Rats use “1984” as a playbook — and will never allow the truth to become history.
So you feel like you got your money’s worth in Iraq? You feel like we got a good deal for the USA? I sure as hell don’t.
I have a picture of stacks and stacks of yellow cake which were also found in Iraq.
I’d post the picture, but I don’t know how.
Everybody knew Saddam had chemical weapons. He had already used them on the Kurds and Iranians. We didn’t go to war because Saddam had chemical weapons. This is no vindication for Bush. He blundered terribly in invading Iraq. Bush’s best service to the country was later ignoring the same voices who urged a war against Iran.
The political condition for justifying Iraq ultimately, but wrongly amounted to locating an arsenal of WMD suitable for TV.
