Saddam era WMDs captured in Iraq by ISIS
americanthinker.com ^ | 6/20/2014 | Dale T. Armstrong

Posted on 06/20/2014 7:51:00 AM PDT by rktman

The British newspaper, The Telegraph reported this stunning little nugget yesterday, on June 19th:

Chemical weapons produced at the Al Muthanna facility, which Isis today seized, are believed to have included mustard gas, Sarin, Tabun, and VX.

Wait……WHAT?

I thought there were no WMD’s in Iraq, of any kind? Whatsoever!

Hate to burst anyone's bubble, but apparently the rules of engagement have changed and wmd's are now only nuclear devices. At least according to the lib/socialists/commies/fascists/progs/dimokkkrats. And now we finally know what the meaning of isis, is. I'm sure these clowns will destroy all these nasty little items and not use them. Or not.

Why didn’t the US destroy any WMD’s when we were there? I’d like to ask George Bush that question.

Pretty interesting how the US, with the highest technology in history, couldn’t find the weapons in 10 years but the a rag tag bunch of stone-age tribesmen found the stuff in 2 days...

I clicked on the link to the Telegraph which is the source. But all I see is the headline, no story.

Someone high up didn't want them to be found and waited until we left. The Taliban is in the White Hut, Capitol and Pentagon

They found it right where it was supposed to be; where the US military was allowed to catalog, but not destroy the stuff. The yellow cake was in cool plastic containers near Baghdad. There were plenty of stories of Iraqi families pouring the stuff in the river to use the containers for drinking water and the health effects of same actions.

The Democrats always said there were no WMD's in Iraq, so maybe they had them the whole time and now have given the WMD's to their brother terrorists?

We should have listened when they said they were not there.

They should know, as they were the ones who probably hid the WMD.

Bush and Obama simply did not ask the right questions!

I'd also like to ask Bush why he never disagreed with the left and never pointed out the existence of this chemical weapons Disney Word. Looks like he did find the WMDs but didn't mention it, possibly so he could reach out to the DemonCraps??

They do exist and something should been done with that facility when we were there. Now it is too dangerous and the chemicals are degrading so I hope iSIS goes in there and it kills a bunch of their people.

Why the hell wasn't this stuff destroyed? Who was in charge? Was the decision not to destroy the stuff political or military chain of command?

I want to ask W. These questions.

Someone did not want him to know. Probably a ‘rat since it would have vindicated the “WMD” factor for attacking Iraq

The citizens of The United States are too stupid and fearful to handle the truth about world events.....or so our government thinks. Then, it becomes easier for the politicians and bureaucrats to justify withholding more information from the citizens because it would just frighten them. Pretty soon, they don’t let us know any bad news.

How in the world can a Democracy function in a nation where the government won’t tell you when they screw up?

I have been asking for years. If it was not nuclear, it did not fit the template. I get the impression the EPA wouldn’t allow them to be burned in place, and no one wanted to be responsible for trying to move them out of the country and risk an incident.

That's not the only question here. WMD's were the whole reason for invading Iraq. If these really are Saddam's WMD's, Bush had to have known about it. Why didn't Bush call a news conference and announce it to the world? That would have vindicated the invasion, at least to some.

Something is very wrong about this whole situation.

I distinctly recall a NYT article in mid to late 2000s that referred to 500 tons of yellowcake in Iraq that was in the process of being moved or destroyed (can’t now remember).

I remember it whenever some lying Democrat gets on TV and whines about “No WMD”.

Gawd, I hate these people.

I saw, only one time, a newscast that showed Russian flat bed trucks with long, cylinder shaped objects draped in some kind of cloth. It was satellite shots and they were thought to be going into Syria.

I never saw that segment again, it just fell into a black hole sorta like the segment that aired showing Rodney King attacking police officers before he got the he11 beat out of himself.

Everybody knew that Saddam had gassed the Kurds years before so why does it surprise anyone that these things were found. The better question is why did the Bush bunch never fight fire with fire? Why did they, to this day, not say that they did find WMD’s? Seems likely that Bush and Obama are on the same side. Remember when Bush Sr. spoke during a state of the Union address of the New World Order? I do.

In his last analysis after coming up empty handed AGAIN...The Chief UN inspector during Bush’s years said....”If they don’t take us to where the weapons are, we’ll never find them.”

Backing off on Saddam’s anthrax connections that coincides with the 911 hijackers always irritated me. I assumed it was to avoid our pre-Obama policy of retailing with the same or Nuclear weapons if attacked by nonconventional weapons.

Sounds like we never found them. Heck, there was so much info coming out I can’t really remember if we knew they were there or not. Maybe we could fess up some SuperFund money for the hazmat clean up. That should keep isis busy for a few weeks so the lyin’king can play some more golf without them interfering.

There were tons of WMDs found in Iraq after we invaded. Literally tons.

However, they were all WMDs which we were already aware that Saddam had, so they apparently didn't really count as WMDs.

For example, there were 600 tons of yellowcake uranium was moved out of Iraq by the US after the invasion in 2003.

But the media still claims no WMDs were "found" in Iraq because it was known to exist by UN inspectors since at least 1991, and was kept in sealed containers and guarded as part of Iraq's disarmament after the Gulw War in 1991.

So because we knew about this uranium and it wasn't "secret" then it doesn't count as "real" WMDs or something.

The New York Times has a fantastic article from 2008 explaining why these WMDs aren't really WNDs.
