About those non-existant WMD's
A couple of articles have come out recently that give lie to the oft repeated myth that "Saddam had no WMDs" and that "Saddam had no connection to al Qaeda". The first is this from the American Thinker magazine. The second is this from Investors Business Daily about the Saddam tapes.
War foes have long asserted that Saddam halted his WMD programs in the wake of his defeat in the first Gulf War in 1991. Saddam's abandonment of WMD programs was confirmed by subsequent U.N. inspections.
Again, not true. In a tape dating to April 1995, Saddam and several aides discuss the fact that U.N. inspectors had found traces of Iraq's biological weapons program. On the tape, Hussein Kamel, Saddam's son-in-law, is heard gloating about fooling the inspectors.
"We did not reveal all that we have," he says. "Not the type of weapons, not the volume of the materials we imported, not the volume of the production we told them about, not the volume of use. None of this was correct."
Say it isn't so...Saddam didn't reveal all of the WMD's that he had to UN inspectors???? Impossible...or so the left would have you believe.
Take this, combined with the articles here and here and you can see that maybe, just maybe Saddam not only had WMD's but he might have indeed had ties to Osama bin Laden and the 9/11 attacks!
