    Weapons of Mass Destruction Found in Iraq

    Looks like we were right about WMDs in Iraq. Note in the attached that they're talking about PROJECTILES, not just stored sarin and gas, but weapons already built:

    A good friend in Atlanta told me that he saw no mention of this in the Atlanta newspaper. Although I have not looked, I am making a shot-in-the-dark guess, and this is just a completely wild guess, mind you, that it's probably not a headline story in the New York Times either.

    Gee ...

    ... what a shock.

    I recall seeing pictures of these chemicals/canisters with the USGIs that "liberated" them on the Internet probably 1 year or more ago.

    Anyone else remember seeing them? If so, do you remember where?

    It is a front page story in the NYT today.
    It appears that these are 15-20 year old degraded sarin weapons. The administration is NOT saying this is the WMD they were after.
    God Bless
    Six for sure...Uh, I mean Five. Five for sure..

    Yes, I remember seeing that stuff. But none of that really matters because we know Saddam used such weapons on his own people at one time. Whenever my liberal family members start the same rhetoric concerning WMD's, I remind them that just having an individual like Saddam in close proximity to half of the world's petroleum supply is reason enough to take appropriate action. They are just just angry that a republican is the one with the intestinal fortitude to do what is necessary.....

    Strange...Scott Ritter, the UN (I may hurl), and the liberal hate-America media machine said "THERE ARE NO WMD's IN IRAQ"

    Hi, chief. I read the article I think you're referring to ...

    (Is this it? http://www.nytimes.com/2006/06/23/us/23believers.html)

    I think that whether or not these were the specific caches of weapons the US thought it knew about is irrelevant. As even the article points out, we couldn't check everything, everywhere.

    It's easy to be led astray by the article, which is tendentious as one would expect from the mainstream media and especially the NYT, specifically written to direction away from the true issues and conclusions, and toward the suggestions that the goverment was wrong and that the folks who are still pushing the issue are just a bunch of nutty, UFO-searcher types. If one sticks to the narrow issues, though, they become mighty clear, and so do the conclusions that the now-absolute facts prove.

    Here are the material facts provided by the recently declassified document and even the NYT article, at least as I see it:

    (1) WMDs have been found - not just recently but since the start of the war,
    (2) the WMDs that have been found in Iraq since the start of the war were in a degraded condition when found,
    (3) the types of WMDs that have been found degrade as a result of the passage of time.

    Here are the inescapable conclusions one must draw from these facts:

    (1) Saddam had the newly reported WMDs before the war, and
    (2) Saddam did not, as he had said, destroy all his WMDs before the war.

    Aside from those two points, the rest is manipulative fluff.

    Best ... and God bless you too, my friend!

    Jon
