Iraq's WMD Secreted in Syria, Sada Says - The New York Sun

The man who served as the no. 2 official in Saddam Hussein's air force says Iraq ... "There are weapons of mass destruction ... that WMD elements were ...
WMD's?

Didn't they rely on "curveball" for that "intelligence"?

R&#257;fid A&#7717;mad Alw&#257;n; born 1968), known by the Defense Intelligence Agency cryptonym "Curveball", is an Iraqi citizen who defected from Iraq in 1999, claiming that he had worked as a chemical engineer at a plant that manufactured mobile biological weapon laboratories as part of an Iraqi weapons of mass destruction program.[2] Alwan's allegations were subsequently shown to be false by the Iraq Survey Group's final report published in 2004.

Despite warnings from the German Federal Intelligence Service and the British Secret Intelligence Service questioning the authenticity of the claims, the US Government and British government utilized them to build a rationale for military action in the lead up to the 2003 invasion of Iraq, including in the 2003 State of the Union address, where President Bush said "we know that Iraq, in the late 1990s, had several mobile biological weapons labs", and Colin Powell's presentation to the UN Security Council, which contained a computer generated image of a mobile biological weapons laboratory. On 24 September 2002, the British government published its dossier on the former Iraqi leader's WMD with a personal foreword by Mr Blair, who assured readers Saddam Hussein had continued to produce WMD "beyond doubt".

In a February 2011 interview with the Guardian he "admitted for the first time that he lied about his story, then watched in shock as it was used to justify the war."

The Bush administration ignored evidence from the UN weapons inspectors that Curveball's claims were false. Curveball had identified a particular Iraqi facility as a docking station for mobile labs.

Instead, the inspectors found the warehouse to be used for seed processing.

The Bush administration laid blame on the CIA, criticizing its officials for "failing to investigate" doubts about Curveball, which emerged after an October 2002 National Intelligence Estimate. In May 2004, over a year after the invasion of Iraq, the CIA concluded formally that Curveball's information was fabricated. Furthermore, on June 26, 2006, The Washington Post reported that "the CIA acknowledged that Curveball was a con artist who drove a taxi in Iraq and spun his engineering knowledge into a fantastic but plausible tale about secret bioweapons factories on wheels."

Still NOT the excuse George gave for going to war.

Still didn't have ANYTHING to do with the 9/11 attacks.

Sorry attempt as usual, to change topics.

Why can't we just agree that GWB and Obama are two of the worst presidents ever? Something is definitely wrong with our electoral system when two such idiots both get two terms.

I would tend to agree.

However the teabaggers wish to not only continue Bush's policies but put them on steroids.

Obama hasn't changed much from Bush.

Continuing his policies is NOT change.

On the other hand, dud, maybe the Country knew what it was doing, and there is something wrong with you.

That is the more more likely scenario.
