Throwing a Curve on Iraq

Posted in Uncategorized by Patrick Truax on October 13, 2007

In January 2004, the morning after David Kay, the chief weapons inspector in Iraq, told a stunned Senate committee that prewar claims that Saddam Hussein had weapons of mass destruction were “all wrong,” President Bush invited him to lunch. Throughout the often tense 90-minute session, Mr. Bush kept returning to the question that haunted him: “What went wrong?” he asked the embarrassed Mr. Kay. “Why did we get it so wrong?”

We didnt do anything wrong. Saddam had the weapons and either destroyed them in place or spirited them off to Syria, while we were trying to convince the French and Kofi (who both had very good reasons for not wanted to oust Saddamm, millions of them, in fact)that Hussein needed to go. The Oil food cover up served a dual purpose-first it kept everyone distracted while saddam moved his WMDs around, and also provided time for the Oil For Food conspirators to attempt to cover their tracks.

Hussein had the weapons, all right, he used them on his own people and Iran during their war. Last time I checked Mustard gas was a WMD and was worthy reason for ousting Saddam. If we had not bounced him, Al-Qaeda would be re-grouping in Iraq, being financed and tranined by Iraqis in Iraq. Salman Pak, anyone? I just dont understand why the admin is taking this tack.

    Syria’s boldness of late also lends speculation that the WMDs are in Syria. The Israelis claim they found nuclear material during their raid a few weeks ago. What it was wasnt revealed..
