Just back from a working road trip up to the Ft.McMurray Tarsands and what's this?
Former Iraqi Airforce General Georges Sada, the number two ranked General in Saddam Hussein's airforce, has gone public with HOW Saddam hid his WMDs in Syria prior to the 2nd Gulf War!
TOLD YA SO! TOLD YA SO! TOLD YA SO!
Damn that felt good. Thanks MadOgre.
Reports are that General Sada will be meeting with the U.S. officialdom in the immediate future, particularly with members of the Senate Armed Services Committee.
Other tidbits from the book include the fact that Osama Bin Laden visited Iraq many times during the mid-1980s.
Sada's book isn't the first time news has broke regarding the hiding of Iraqi WMDs. Previous reports were largely ignored by the midstream media. Hell, as of tonight, a search of cnn.com of the keywords 'wmd' and 'sada' show no hits at all.
"In April 2004, US Vice President Dick Cheney stated to the press that he had seen reports regarding Hussein's WMD being moved to Syria.
Further, Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon on December 23, 2002, stated: "'Chemical and biological weapons which Saddam is endeavoring to conceal have been moved from Iraq to Syria.'" See article in the Fall 2005 Middle East Quarterly .
American press gave those words little attention since the nation was caught up in Christmas celebrations and vacations."Conservatives have long charged that the midstream media either distorts or ignores news that doesn't agree with their pre-conceived left wing notions of reality, (not that we needed any more proof of that.) I'm reminded of comments the late great Robert Heinlein made regarding people who think that way:
"Anyone who thinks of the world in terms of what it ought to be, Instead of what it is, isn't ready for the final exam."
