US: 'Saddam had no weapons of mass destruction'
    #1527059 - 05/07/03 11:07 AM (13 years, 6 months ago)

By Neil Mackay



The Bush administration has admitted that Saddam Hussein probably had no weapons of mass destruction.
Senior officials in the Bush administration have admitted that they would be 'amazed' if weapons of mass destruction (WMD) were found in Iraq.

According to administration sources, Saddam shut down and destroyed large parts of his WMD programmes before the invasion of Iraq.

Ironically, the claims came as US President George Bush yesterday repeatedly justified the war as necessary to remove Iraq's chemical and biological arms which posed a direct threat to America.

Bush claimed: 'Saddam Hussein had weapons of mass destruction. We will find them.'

The comments from within the administration will add further weight to attacks on the Blair government by Labour backbenchers that there is no 'smoking gun' and that the war against Iraq -- which centred on claims that Saddam was a risk to Britain, America and the Middle East because of unconventional weapons -- was unjustified.

The senior US official added that America never expected to find a huge arsenal, arguing that the administration was more concerned about the ability of Saddam's scientists -- which he labelled the 'nuclear mujahidin' -- to develop WMDs when the crisis passed.

This represents a clearly dramatic shift in the definition of the Bush doctrine's central tenet -- the pre-emptive strike. Previously, according to Washington, a pre-emptive war could be waged against a hostile country with WMDs in order to protect American security.

Now, however, according to the US official, pre-emptive action is justified against a nation which simply has the ability to develop unconventional weapons.

Heh. That actually brings a smile to face. Our President is a duplicitous sonuvabitch. Blatant lies, and then ADMITTING to them!

And you guys like the Republicans...Ha!

Nice post though....

"The Bush administration has admitted that Saddam Hussein probably had no weapons of mass destruction.

"According to administration sources, Saddam shut down and destroyed large parts of his WMD programmes before the invasion of Iraq."

i saw this story in the news forum, and i was gonna cut and paste it to here, but i thought the story was kinda weak. if 'senior' officials came out with something like this, i think there'd be more papers covering it than the 'sunday herald' or whatever it is. or are they not because it's all propaganda?

Disgusting! :mad:  I think sanctions should be instilled on america to keep them from pre-emptively attacking countries with "capabilites" to produce WMD....which, believe it or not, could include canada.

It was. They were the only people in the world who were being oppressed, and now they're free.

What's your point?

I always thought it was about security...

Here's an excerpt from an MSNBC article:

'The Bush administration said destroying Iraq?s suspected chemical, biological and nuclear weapons programs was the main reason for the war. Despite weeks of searching its top suspected sites, none has been reported found so far.'

I'm also sceptic about this. I doubt they'll admit that they lied so easily. lol

The Bush administration has admitted that Saddam Hussein probably had no weapons of mass destruction.

Bush claimed: 'Saddam Hussein had weapons of mass destruction. We will find them.'




Your post contradicts itself within the first page of itself.  Did the admin say he didn't ,or he did? I'm confused :smile:

The article doesn't contradict itself at all...it just shows that Bush is a liar. (not that it's exactly a news flash)

Those are all very possible...but personally I'm going to stick my view that Bush is evil incarnate.  :smirk:
