Now, everyone jokes about the Bush Administration’s claim that Saddam Hussein had Weapons of Mass Destruction (WMD). We hear things all the time about”yellow cake” and how the CIA and intelligence agencies allegedly lied that Saddam was trying to get Uranium to enrich. Somehow the narrative of WMD changed definitions in the left-leaning media to mean”nuclear” weapons of mass destruction, not biological or chemical WMD.
The other day, I read a different report from Longwood Wildlife Removal that stated;”Congress thought the so-called WMD’lies’ toolong before Bush. In fact, British Intelligence still stands by the story.”
This hardly surprises me, because we now know that the WMD (chemical weapons) left Iraq three days before we entered Baghdad, a Russian Convoy took them across into Syria, a few actually made it to Libya, which is the reason why the Bush Administration noted the axis of evil and three more nations were afterwards added.
Gaddafi immediately realized he was next and made a deal with the Bush Administration to come clean. British Intelligence did get it right, still have it right. It is just now WMD supposed radioactive material from the media, but we know Saddam had chemical weapons, largely because we sold them the compounds to use against the Iranians in that long war they had. I think if more people would stop using the sound bites and TV Cable political rhetoric and read up on this stuff things would sure be a lot better.
Simple, we know this because we sold them to use against the Iranians in the Iraq-Iran war. Chemical weapons which is, and they had some left-over and created some too. It’s not tough to create the stuff, Iraq had weapon scientists too, some even came after the Fall of the Soviet Union, bioweapon specialists. There isn’t anything secret about any of this, and the two presidents didn’t say that, Obama did before elected but he wasn’t privy to any of the and lies about everything anyway.
President Bush knew he couldn’t prove the Yellow Cake thing following the Spanish intelligence blew the Niger yellow cake story out of proportion. Libya ended up with some of the WMD also, and did you see how fast Gadhafi capitulated when we found out, he practically chose to come clean whatever we asked to the Russian’s chagrin.
Anyway, maybe it’s time we stop playing games with media quotes, especially from context, an individual can’t have it both ways, an individual can’t mention the media when it suits them then call it all lies and condemn it as it does not – there’s no honor to that behavior. If we keep rewriting history, we will not learn from it, and so, we’ll be doomed to repeat it.
