Iraq were pretending to have WMDs!
    #1972879 - 10/02/03 03:19 PM (13 years, 5 months ago)

So this is the best they can come up with?? Saddam was pretending to have WMDs all along! How stupid do they think people are? If Saddam was pretending why did he repeatedly deny that Iraq possesed WMDs?

Congress briefed on Iraq's WMD


No weapons have been found yet
Saddam Hussein may have been pretending to possess weapons of mass destruction, the US Congress is expected to be told by the man in charge of the US-led hunt for Iraqi weapons.
David Kay is briefing the intelligence committees of both houses of Congress behind closed doors.

Mr Kay is expected to say that so far no weapons have been found in Iraq - and that the former Iraqi leader pretended his battlefield commanders had chemical weapons in order to deter invasion, according to the Washington Post.

US administration officials insist this is just a progress report, but there seems to be growing scepticism in Washington about what the search will ultimately reveal, says the BBC's Nick Childs in Washington.

Mr Kay, a former UN weapons inspector, is the CIA representative working with the Iraq Survey Group, which has been hunting for weapons of mass destruction since the end of the war in Iraq.

The failure of the US-led coalition to make any significant discoveries so far has led to criticism, particularly in the UK, of the decision to invade Iraq.

IRAQ SURVEY GROUP
Set up in May
Kay appointed by CIA director George Tenet
1,200 experts from the US, Britain and Australia
Headquarters in Washington, offices in Baghdad and Qatar
UK Prime Minister Tony Blair again called for patience over the search for banned weapons.

In a Thursday television interview he said: "I think people should wait, just wait until you see the report.

"This is an interim report and the issue that people should focus on is this: 'Will they disclose evidence that this is a breach of the United Nations resolutions that would have triggered a war with UN support if that information had been before the UN?'" he said.

HAVE YOUR SAY
Saddam has proven to be the master of hiding things including himself

Little to tell?

Mr Kay's report comes as Congress debates President George W Bush's request for $87bn for spending on Iraq and Afghanistan.

One element of that budget is $600m to pay for further searches for evidence that Saddam Hussein did possess weapons of mass destruction, according to the New York Times.


David Kay once told Americans not to be 'surprised by surprises'
If the budget is approved, the ISG will boost its staff by 200 to 1,400.

According to the leaks from Mr Kay's report, Saddam Hussein sent his generals authorisation to use WMDs against advancing US troops.

President Bush in turn quoted these commands, referring to "the very weapons the dictator tells the world he does not have".

However, Mr Kay's report might imply that such commands were false and deliberately intended to confuse the international community.

Release

Mr Kay will give separate addresses to the House and Senate Intelligence Committees, and an unclassified version of his testimony is due to be released later on Thursday.


"I don't think he's going to have a lot to tell us," said Jay Rockefeller, the senior Democrat on the Senate committee.

Committee chairman Pat Roberts, a Republican, said he was increasingly uncertain about Iraq's alleged possession of WMDs.

"At one point I'm sure they did. Where they are now and what point they are now, I just don't know."

Some officials in the Pentagon are saying there is evidence of secret Iraqi preparations to produce chemical or biological weapons.

Mr Kay is expected to report that Saddam Hussein never abandoned his attempts to build WMDs, the Washington Post reports.

The paper says Mr Kay will also report that Iraq bought supplies that could have been used to build banned weapons, after UN inspectors left the country in 1998.

Don't be so hard on them dude, my parents fooled me into thinking Santa exists for YEARS! "Just because you never see him doesn't mean he doesn't exist..look! Presents!" It's lucky we didn't keep cruise missiles in the house or they would have been sorry.


--------------------
The above is an extract from my fictional novel, "The random postings of Edame".
:tongue:

In the beginning was the word. And man could not handle the word, and the hearing of the word, and he asked God to take away his ears so that he might live in peace without having to hear words which might upset his equinamity or corrupt the unblemished purity of his conscience.

And God, hearing this desperate plea from His creation, wrinkled His mighty brow for a moment and then leaned down toward man, beckoning that he should come close so as to hear all that was about to be revealed to him.

"Fuck you," He whispered, and frowned upon the pathetic supplicant before retreating to His heavens.

It's actually possible that some of Hussein's scientists were lying to him out of fear. His field commanders routinely did so, which is one reason he so eagerly sent his armies to be ground into dust. Killing the bearers of bad news is not a good way to ensure that you get accurate information.

You cannot legislate the poor into prosperity by legislating the wealthy out of prosperity. What one person receives without working for another person must work for without receiving. The government cannot give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody else. When half of the people get the idea that they do not have to work because the other half is going to take care of them and when the other half gets the idea that it does no good to work because somebody else is going to get what they work for that my dear friend is the beginning of the end of any nation. You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it. ~ Adrian Rogers

Read the cartoon. Then if you find something smokeable in the same place they found theWMD's, go for it.

This is a pretty good indication of why launching wars of aggression based on "intelligence" is bullshit.
