Well, I guess France has to join our side, then. Watch the weasels backpedal out of this one.

How could France be held to their word when the Iraqi soldier didn't actually use the anthrax? Intent matters NOTHING to the "leader" of France.

"I say grab the envelope immediately and compare that anthrax with the anthrax linked to 9-11."

My first thought.

The people who believe that we would manufacture evidence in their knee-jerk manner will never be convinced anyway. IMHO.

This is true. Some people, like those human shields in the UPI report, are able to eventually see the light. Others know the truth already, but they fight it because they have an agenda. The most cursed are the ones who simply refuse to believe the truth, and who go out of their way not to believe it. Such people are so obstinate, that should God come down from heaven and confirm the WMD, they would accuse Him of being an illusion created by the VRWC.

"This was obviously planted by the CIA /end sarcasm"

The left will not be joking (not on purpose anyway) when this becomes their standard line, assuming of course that the report pans out. As many have pointed out, it will not persuade them, but it does push them farther and farther into the fantasy world of paranoid conspiracy theory.

Wonder whether J Garofalo is getting a bit nervous. She promised to crawl on broken glass, etc.

She'd better find some thick kneepads, methinks.

Hey, buddy.
Knock it off.
You and Dyson are making grade a a$$#$ out of yourselves.
Haven't you been paying attention?
Arnot said it on MSNBC on the telly.
If and when a link becomes available, it will be provided.
Likely, MSNBC won't put it on their site till later, is at all.
That's how they work.
Unless, of course, they want to quash this info to coincide with their agenda.
Which they have done numerous times in the past.

I think Chiraq should publicly apologize and resign even if the test results prove they never had any chemical weapons. They have far too much of a military left for my comfort, and I think the responsibility is clearly on the shoulders of Russia, China, France, and Germany.

If this is Anthrax, then Chirac should publicly apologize, resign, and go to prison.

they will say that His behavior is not surprising given his political stance.

Yes indeed. The God they so rabidly hate not only happens to be a conservative, He also happens to be the #1 Zionist.

With all the arguing in this thread, you have to wonder if some people shouldn't be banned for stupidity and/or for trying to intentionally put a blanket on Free Republic's strongest quality.

Everyone who has a heartbeat and a pair of eyes has probably seen the live real-time battlefield reporting from Iraq **ON TV** -- not scrolling across some outdated website. This kind of excellent heads-up post is what makes Free Republic better than other mainstream website right now. Even can't keep up with MSNBC-TV.

There is no URL link to a voice coming out of a television set. What are people thinking? A link to the website for the approriate network makes sense so people can monitor it for delayed article posts. And of course reports like this are almost always confirmed by others who saw the same report. No one is saying the tests have proven it's anthrax, but because of the instructions they found, it's being treated as such until proven otherwise.

Has MSNBC said any more about this? I've been trolling the news nets and haven't heard a peep about this on the boob tube. I would think that this would be very big news.
