Unfinished Story of Iraqi WMD

By on 1.28.06 | 10:08PM

Speaking routinely now with Steve Hayes of the Weekly Standard and John Loftus of IntelligenceSummit.org and also my best source with regard the Byzantine tale of the Iraqi WMD program that cannot be proved or unproved by the public record of facts established since the capture of Baghdad in April 2003.

I mention again the promising mysterious treasure said to be coming to all of us within the next month. John Loftus is in possession of a CD that came to him by a reportedly trustworthy route that represents a collection of recorded sessions from 1988 to early this century (perhaps as late as 2002) in which Saddam Hussein plots with thirty other voices to supervise and conceal WMD.

The voice of Saddam Hussein is now verified by trustworthy agent; the voice of Tariq Aziz is verified by trustworthy agent. Blix and ElBaredi are said to be mentioned most disparingly and or damangingly. The core topic is how to manipulate inquiries and searches for WMD, after the Gulf War I, 1990-91, during the UN inspection regime from 1991-98, after the inspectors returned to Baghdad in 2002.

Why did Saddam Hussein order the recordings? Working assumption is that Saddam Hussein intended to write a book about how he had fooled and defeated UNSCOM and UNMOVIC and the rest of the sanctions first and last crowd.

More intriguingly is the fact that the CD is a compilation of many long sessions. Where are the original recording tapes? The search is said to be underway in the mountains of unexplored captured documents that is the focus of the operation called DOCEX.

Best source confirms that the undiscovered story of Iraqi WMDs is in plain sight and has been since the war. The most dangerous material was moved to Syria, and some of it to Lebanon; major weapons systems were also moved to Syria during the April 2003 fighting. Other reports point to undiscovered storage facilities underground in west Baghdad; other reports point to transfers to Iran.

These reports have not changed or diminished in the nearly three years since the March 2003 invasion.

What also has not changed or diminished is the political threat to many (from Damascus to the DNC) when (and not if) the full story of the Iraqi regime WMD is revealed and told.
