General admits WMD intelligence was wrong

General admits chemical weapons intelligence was wrong

Julian Borger in Washington
Saturday May 31, 2003
The Guardian

The leading American marine general in Iraq conceded yesterday that intelligence reports that chemical weapons had been deployed around Baghdad before the war were "wrong".

The admission came at a time when the quality of the intelligence underlying the US and British allegations against Saddam Hussein in the run-up to the conflict is increasingly questioned.

Lieutenant General James Conway, the commander of the 1st Marine Expeditionary Force, said he had been convinced that before and during the war, shells with chemical warheads had been distributed to republican guard units around Baghdad.

"It was a surprise to me then - it remains a surprise to me now - that we have not uncovered weapons, as you say, in some of the forward dispersal sites," he told reporters in a video-conference at the Pentagon yesterday.

"Believe me, it's not for lack of trying," he added. "We've been to virtually every ammunition supply point between the Kuwaiti border and Baghdad, but they're simply not there."

Will people begin to question the Bush administration now?

I'm still wondering where pink is. He was the guy most convinced WMD existed. His belief system must have been shattered beyond comprehension. Perhaps he's still coming to terms with how wrong he was and how many lies he believed.

How dare you question the Bush administration! They care about you. They believe in absolute freedom and liberty for all. Even as they ship you off to the concentrations camps, they'll ask you to pray for Bush the dicta- I mean president. God bless America...... and the oil companies.

That scary thing is, if the slow-minded repubs haven't gotten a clue yet, they never will. They'll still kiss Bush's ass after he passes the patriot act 2.

I remember hearing the reports during the war that chem warheads had been distributed with orders to use them. What ever happened with that? A fucking lie I believe it is. Fucking amazing.

Yeah I wondered about that one. The media reported that without even questioning whether or not it had any basis in truth. Obviously someone in the whitehouse just made it up one day and the press are so submissive they didn't even question it.

Makes you wonder where this "left wing media" is..

After one comes, through contact with it's administrators, no longer to cherish greatly the law as a remedy in abuses, then the bottle becomes a sovereign means of direct action.  If you cannot throw it at least you can always drink out of it.  - Ernest Hemingway

If it is life that you feel you are missing I can tell you where to find it.  In the law courts, in business, in government.  There is nothing occurring in the streets. Nothing but a dumbshow composed of the helpless and the impotent.    -Cormac MacCarthy

He who learns must suffer. And even in our sleep pain that cannot forget falls drop by drop upon the heart, and in our own despair, against our will, comes wisdom to us by the awful grace of God.  - Aeschylus
