  • DoD News Briefing with Secretary Rumsfeld and Gen. Casey from the Pentagon (500 WMDs found in Iraq)

    Q Mr. Secretary, there's been a lot made on Capitol Hill about the chemical weapons that were found and may be quite old. But do you have a real concern of these weapons from Saddam's past perhaps having an impact on U.S. troops who are on the ground in Iraq right now? SEC. RUMSFELD: Certainly. What's been announced is accurate, that there have been hundreds of canisters or weapons of various types found that either currently have sarin in them or had sarin in them. And sarin's dangerous. And it's dangerous to our forces and it's a concern. So, obviously,...

    Iraq: It wasn't just WMD that made the case for war. There were plenty of good reasons for the invasion that removed Saddam Hussein, and they bear repeating. We could start with justice. Because of the war, Saddam Hussein is now on trial for his barbaric crimes against the Iraqi people. Or we could note that the invasion liberated the Iraqis from this man and his totalitarian state. Their transition to a stable, secure and fully democratic Iraq has been difficult, but they are free to shape their own future. That wasn't the case before 2003. We also know that...

    The New York Times reports today that before his death, top al Qaeda terrorist Abu Musab al Zarqawi trained about 300 foreign fighters in Iraq and sent them back to their home countries, where they awaited orders to carry out strikes. But the paper makes no mention of Zarqawi's most ambitious foreign attack plot, which nearly succeeded two years ago: a weapons of mass destruction strike that intelligence officials estimated would have killed 20,000. The death toll planned by Zarqawi would have far exceeded the destruction wrought by Osama bin Laden on Sept. 11. The April 2004 attack, which was...

Chemicals allowed for export to Iraq by other countries: - Sodium Cyanide - Hydrogen Cyanide - Phosgene Well golly, gee-whiz... those chemicals are WMD with a world history of being used as chemical weapons. The U.N. is a complete joke! They are looking for chemical weapons while allowing Saddam to purchase chemical weapons! Yeah, that's the ticket! Makes good sense to me!...

    VIENNA: Diplomats believe Iran used high-quality uranium gas from China to speed a breakthrough in enrichment for their nuclear program, which Tehran says is for peaceful energy but the West claims could hide weapons work. "The Iranians have sought to accomplish a technological achievement for political purposes and chose the Chinese feedstock gas because of its quality, which ensures a better enrichment process," said a diplomat with access to intelligence sources. The diplomat, who asked not to be named, said Iran "wanted to declare it had done uranium enrichment and was in a hurry", so it had the work completed...

His offense: building a tiny bomb and mailing it to the cosmetic surgeon who had promised - but failed - to deliver big results. He faces a likely prison sentence of four years or more on a charge more commonly used against terrorists than dissatisfied customers.

Weakness and appeasement on the foreign policy front brings nothing but trouble and anguish, not only to Americans but to freedom-loving people everywhere. Terrorists take advantage of those who are weak. The historical record speaks for itself: In 1979, the Shah of Iran, a strong ally of the United States, was overthrown by...

    Few historians can hope to match the tremendous success of the history-trained fiction writer Caleb Carr, whose book, The Alienist (1994) was a chilling look at the world of late 19th-century America through the eyes of a detective and practitioner of early criminal forensics. Carr made the New York Times list and attained a reputation for engrossing (if rather lengthy) novels. Michael Shaara’s equally impressive Killer Angels (1974) has become a classroom staple for Civil War courses and was the basis for Ronald Maxwell’s movie, Gettysburg.

One thinks of those liberals and Democrats who accused President Bush of "lying" about weapons of mass destruction and about ties between al Qaeda and Iraq particularly now, because last week, after an unaccountable delay of three years, the administration declassified and released thousands of documents captured from Saddam's regime.

Speaking on Fox News Channel, General Sada said that the tapes were not translated correctly and his translation is that Saddam Hussein did have WMD. Why would Newsweek publish an erroneous story?

    BAGHDAD, Iraq - Exasperated, besieged by global pressure, Saddam Hussein and top aides searched for ways in the 1990s to prove to the world they'd given up banned weapons. "We don't have anything hidden!" the frustrated Iraqi president interjected at one meeting, transcripts show. At another, in 1996, Saddam wondered whether U.N. inspectors would "roam Iraq for 50 years" in a pointless hunt for weapons of mass destruction. "When is this going to end?" he asked. It ended in 2004, when U.S. experts, after an exhaustive investigation, confirmed what the men in those meetings were saying: that Iraq had eliminated...

That conversation evolved into a debate about Bush, and of course "the fact that there were no WMDs". I pointed out that what the Democrat and leftist pundits and political leaders have really said, and said in monolithic lockstep, is that there "is no evidence that Saddam had WMD's or that Saddam had any connection to Al Qaida." It can be worded or phrased in varying ways, but that is essentially it, "no evidence"....

    SADDAM Hussein ordered plans to be drawn up for a chemical weapons attack on Kurdish guerrilla bases in northern Iraq in 1987, according to a letter signed by his personal secretary. The letter was among a series of memos between Saddam's office, military intelligence and the army found by United States troops in Iraq; they do not say if the attack was carried out. The planned attack appears to have been part of the 1987-88 campaign that left more than 180,000 Kurds dead and demolished hundreds of Kurdish villages in northern Iraq.

    In the 1970s and 1980s there were several indications about Saddam Hussein’s development of the WMD programs (biological, chemical and nuclear). The Israeli attack on the Iraqi French-made Osirak nuclear reactor in 1981 slowed down the progress of the Iraq’s nuclear weapons program but the biological and chemical WMDs were highly developed, due to the Soviet assistance, Iraqi scientists and a sophisticated system of procurement, organized by the Iraqi Intelligence in Western Europe and in other parts of the World.

    Meet former Iraqi General Georges Sada. He was one of Saddam Hussein's top generals and trusted military advisers. He probably single-handedly prevented Hussein from triggering World War III. And now he tells his amazing story in "Saddam's Secrets." Since his startling book was published, the world has heard one seemingly fantastic part of the story – that the former Iraqi dictator secreted away his stash of weapons of mass destruction before the U.S. invasion. Sada reveals the who, what, when, where, why and how in prolific detail. But the story is much bigger even than that. Not only did Hussein...

    WASHINGTON, DC, United States (UPI) -- U.S. intelligence officials are being warned about attending a conference this weekend where organizers plan to release audio tapes of Iraqi President Saddam Hussein discussing his illegal weapons programs -- because of concerns about one of the event`s underwriters. The Intelligence Summit, a privately organized conference and exhibition being held this weekend in Arlington, Va., boasts that it 'is intended to be the most prestigious world conference on international studies, intelligence policy, terrorism, and homeland security.' Until recently the event had two former CIA directors on its board of advisors, and touted a number...

    Ex-Official: Russia Moved Saddam's WMDs A top Pentagon official who was responsible for tracking Saddam Hussein's weapons programs before and after the 2003 liberation of Iraq, has provided the first-ever account of how Saddam Hussein "cleaned up" his weapons of mass destruction stockpiles to prevent the United States from discovering them. "The short answer to the question of where the WMDs Saddam bought from the Russians went was that they went to Syria and Lebanon," former Deputy Undersecretary of Defense John. A. Shaw told an audience Saturday at a privately sponsored "Intelligence Summit" in Alexandria, Va. ( "They were moved...

    Two former CIA directors have resigned from the board of the organization planning tomorrow to make public secret recordings of Saddam Hussein and his advisers. In the last week both John Deutch and James Woolsey abruptly left their positions at Intelligence Summit, according to its president, John Loftus, who said their departure is part of a campaign by the directorate of national intelligence to punish him for releasing the recordings.

    WASHINGTON - Among the treasure trove of information captured after Saddam Hussein's fall were tape recordings of the Iraqi leader discussing weapons of mass destruction with top aides. Transcripts of Saddam's tapes reviewed by NBC News show him ruminating about future terror attacks in the United States using weapons of mass destruction. "We shouldn’t be surprised to see a car bomb with nuclear [material] explode [in] Washington, either germ or chemical," Saddam tells aides. "So this is coming,” Saddam says on the tapes, “but not from Iraq," he adds, seeming to indicate that Iraq would not be the source of...

    LAST week a man who had been deputy chief of Saddam Hussein's air force claimed Iraq moved weapons of mass destruction into Syria before the war began. Special Republican Guard brigades loaded yellow barrels with the skull and crossbones sign on each barrel onto two airliners from which the seats had been removed, Georges Sada said. There were 56 flights in all. "Saddam realized this time the Americans are coming," Mr. Sada told the New York Sun, one of a handful of news organizations that took note of what he had to say.
