Wikilinks: Iraq Did Have WMD

There were weapons of mass destruction in Iraq after all.

The massive cache of almost 400,000 Iraq war documents released by the WikiLeaks Web site revealed that amounts of chemical weapons were found in Iraq and continued to surface for years after the 2003 US invasion, Wired magazine reported.

The documents showed that US troops continued to find chemical weapons and labs for years after the invasion, including remnants of Saddam Hussein’s chemical weapons arsenal — most of which had been destroyed following the Gulf War.

In August 2004, American troops were able to buy containers from locals of what they thought was liquid sulfur mustard, a blister agent, the documents revealed. The chemicals were triple-sealed and taken to a secure site.

Also in 2004, troops discovered a chemical lab in a house in Fallujah during a battle with insurgents. A chemical cache was also found in the city.

Uranium was found by US troops in 2003, the inspectors found a 500 ton cache of refined yellow cake uranium at Iraq’s primary nuclear research facility in Al—Tuwaitha outside of Bagdhad, a Nuclear Research Facility under Saddam located south of Baghdad.

    “The last UN weapons inspectors left Iraq in October of 1998.

Intelligence reports indicate that he is seeking nuclear weapons…”
    — Sen. Robert Byrd (D, WV), Oct. 3, 2002

  2. Pingback: Was George Bush Correct After all on Iraq’s WMD? | The Conservative Papers

  3. Never doubted for an instant WMD were in Iraq. Bush was a good president. Bush made some mistakes, but that was NOT one of them.

    Bush’s main mistake was declaring that Muslims and Christians worship the same God. That’s is absolutely false.
    Another mistake was forcing Israel to give up land for peace… and you see how much peace that bought Israel today.
