Skip to comments.'Bush Was Right'(Saddam's WMD)

WMD: The quote above is that of a former UNSCOM member after translating and reviewing 12 hours of taped conversations between Saddam Hussein and his aides. So what's on the covers of Time and Newsweek?
Funny thing about dictators and tyrants: Very often they are meticulous record keepers. The fall of the Third Reich, the Soviet Union and Saddam Hussein's Iraq all produced treasure troves of information. In Iraq's case, there were so many documents and records that even now only a small fraction have been translated and analyzed.
Among them are 12 hours of conversations from the early 1990s through 2000 between Hussein and his top advisers. They reveal, among other things, how Iraq was working on an advanced method of enriching uranium, how Iraq was conspiring to deceive U.N. inspectors regarding weapons of mass destruction and how these weapons might be used against the U.S.
The tapes were officially presented Sunday by former FBI translator Bill Tierney to a private conference of former weapons inspectors and intelligence experts in Arlington, Va. Tierney is an Arabic speaker who worked in the mid-1990s for the United Nations Special Commission (UNSCOM), the agency responsible for overseeing Iraq's disarmament.

THIS is what we should be talking about instead of Cheney and ports.
Everyone is in too much of a lather to even notice.
The Media is about to become silent on the issue of WMD.
MSM .... CHIRP CHIRP (sounds of crickets)
The MSM and DNC couldn't have made this happen any better if they planned it.
Okay look, I don't deny that there's a generic media bias against anything that would make Bush look good, but this is such a gigantic story that is so muffled, even among many conservative sites. (Even here, it gets only moderate play.)
There's got to be more to it than mere media bias. What is it?
Any members of Congress, who were aware of this proof of WMDs yet actively opposed the Iraq war, are guilty of treason. Indict.
Call me crazy, but I think the port issue deserves higher coverage. The port issue is about security threats to come. The WMD issue is already settled, whether to our satisfaction or not. Iraq won't be getting WMDs. If our ports are secured by Arabs, the ports might be used as entry for WMDs.
I still think that the port of Houston or one near it in Texas will be the next terrorist target.
THIS is what we should be talking about instead of Cheney and ports.""
The operation of our ports is a correct topic for FR, I think. As for Cheney:
Who is making t-shirts that say:
I WOULD RATHER GO HUNTING WITH DICK CHENEY THAN DRIVING WITH TED KENNEDY!!! ??
I WOULD LIKE ONE IF THERE IS SUCH A THING. CONTACT ME DIRECTLY, PLEASE.
Because if the news was actually reported Bush's poll numbers might go into the eighties.
This story was posted here many times well before the ports story became hot, and it got a lot of attention. Unfortunately, but not surprisingly, the MSM completely ignored it.
I wouldn't say every thread. This topic is being followed too, although I have to say that far too many Freepers joined the MSM "no WMD" chorus and continue to doubt that there were any. This, despite all the evidence before, during, and after we invaded Iraq.
Too late now. They could find a billion tons of WMD stockpiled somewhere in Iraq and it wouldn't matter. The port story is undoing all that has been done to fight this war in the minds of many on both sides of the political aisle. Whoever took Karl Rove...ha ha...very funny...PUT HIM BACK NOW!
Someone in the White House screwed this up....BIG TIME....
The next terrorist target is any upcoming U.S. election. And their strategy is to get democrats elected.
