The Daily Show?
Millions of stoners probably wrote it off as a weed-induced hallucination.
Careful. I know that what he is selling is essentially what I want to hear, but skepticism of this fellow is recommended.
I was actually flipping last night and happened to see this. I was stunned this was on the Daily Show of all places. Jon Stewart seemed skeptical, but was polite I thought. Very interesting stuff, although every time I hear things of this nature I get annoyed with the adminstration for giving in to the "No WMDs" Crowd.
I agree, but it's not as if he's the first person to make this claim. I was convinced at least a year ago that these weapons were moved to Syria.
Retired in 1986, became a born-again Christian, imprisoned in 1991, and his buddies told him they moved the WMD's to Syria...
I'm not saying it ain't so, but he's peddling a book remember.
I'll wait for the crucial second and third source.
Good that the word is getting out though... even if it is to an audience of mostly raving leftist lunatics. You can bet that at least a small percentage got the message.
Make sure to check out the Mike Rosen interview audio link in my repost Ian's article here. It's the best interview by far for the former Iraqi General... three 20 minute segments worth.
I, too, am annoyed.
I suspect the reason was Russian complicity in the removal, and there was some sort of trade for co-operation in another arena.
That, or a Rovian plot for the Dims to be inevitably wed to a to-be-proven wrong position, such that they look like complete idiots.
It's interesting that the MSM has refused to acknowledge this guy but I have failed to see them doing any "investigative" reporting themselves. They just take selective documents and skew them or embrace them depending on which support their arguments. In other words LAZY JOURNALIST!
That's what the administration said about Chalabi too. You remember, the guy the US government paid hundreds of thousands of dollars?
I was convinced, probably a little over 2 years ago, that the weapons were moved. Syria seemed to me at the time to be the only logical conclusion.
It's pretty much the same that Scott Ritter said until Saddam paid him to change his tune.
The bottom line - until someone starts pulling WMD out of bunkers or out of the ground in Syria, this is all just worthless hearsay.
But Dan Rathers clumsy forgeries were fake, but true.
There's no explaining the sick liberal mind...
SY: I agree, but it's not as if he's the first person to make this claim. I was convinced at least a year ago that these weapons were moved to Syria.
Well that weaponsMD existed in not in dispute. That evidence is well substantiated. The second part, that they were spirited to Syria, needs some verification if you ask me. Yes, we like what he is saying, BUT unlike the demonRats, we have to rely on truth not rumors.
Why is that? I don't know but it is true. We're held to a different standard.
We just can't get away with using the Dan Rather TANG defense:
"false but essentially true."
Mark for later download and inclusion in my Iraqi Freedom DVD.
