We hear things all the time about”yellow cake” and how the CIA and intelligence agencies supposedly lied that Saddam was trying to get Uranium to improve. Somehow the story of WMD changed definitions from the left-leaning media to mean”nuclear” weapons of mass destruction, not biological or chemical WMD.
The other day, I read another report from a Think Tank that stated;”Congress thought the so-called WMD’lies’ also , long before Bush. In fact, British Intelligence still stands by the story.”
This hardly surprises me, since we now know that the WMD (chemical weapons) left Iraq three times before we entered Baghdad, a Russian Convoy took them across into Syria, a few actually made it to Libya, which is why the Bush Administration noted that the axis of evil and three more countries were afterwards added.
Gaddafi immediately realized he was following and made a deal with the Bush Administration to come clean. It’s just now WMD meant radioactive substance from the media, but we know Saddam had chemical weapons, mostly because we sold them the compounds to use against the Iranians in that long war they had. I think if more folks 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 all know this because we sold it to 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 did not say that, Obama did before elected but he wasn’t privy to any of the and lies about everything anyway.
President Bush knew he could not establish the Yellow Cake thing after the Spanish intelligence blew the Niger yellow cake story out of proportion. Libya ended up with some of that WMD too, and did you see how fast Gadhafi capitulated when we found out, he practically made a deal to come clean whatever we asked to the Russian’s chagrin.
Anyway, maybe it’s time we stop playing games with media quotes, especially out of context, one can’t have it both ways, an individual can’t cite the media when it suits them then call it all lies and condemn it as it does not – there’s not any honor to that behavior. If we keep rewriting history, we won’t learn from it, and so, we will be doomed to repeat it.
