I told you so wouldn't even matter

In the face of so much out yelled opposition, I have always been a firm believer in the world wide international intelligence consensus that Saddam Hussein was redevolping his WMD program. I have also been a firm believer in the Israeli intellegence that Saddam shipped all of his illegal weapons (as deemed by UN sanctions and resolutions) and much of his technology to Syria. Want one example of proof that Israel was right? Israel is on the forefront of weapons technology. One of the many technologies they have is an extremely advanced piece of weapons detection technology. They can see if a neighboring country launches a weapons long before that country realizes that they pushed the button. Over the summer, this technology recorded that Syria was doing test launches of scud missiles. Ummm... as far as any-one and any intelligence knew, Syria didn't possess any of these kinds of scud missiles. They bared the stark trade-mark/signature of Saddam Hussein. What? How did that happen?!?

Now comes the newly uncovered secret tapes and hundreds upon hudreds of pages of documents proving that Hussein was in full swing redeveloping his WMD program, already had significant technology necessary to make chemical and biological weapons, and, oh yeah, he was also laughing his a$$ off at the UN sanctions. Basically, it shows him wontonly disregarding any sanction against him and developing many illegal weapons and technology right under the UN inspectors' noses. Also, what these "new" pieces of evidence show that the infamous Duelfer Report made many mistakes and miscalculations when researching Saddam's threats to the US. These are the same people who said Saddam had no connection, monetarily or otherwise, with Al-queda.

I've come to realize, by the lack of MSM coverage given to these developments, that like Katrina, the liberal elites and democratic ostriches have already made up their mind and won't let a little something like the facts get in their way. If you say 2+2=5 enough times, you'll start to believe it. No WMD! No WMD!! So, now, even if I were to get one of them sitting at a table, and I threw all the facts in their face, showed clear cut evidence of the clear cut truth, they're still scream that Hussein had no WMDs, was in no way trying to re-establish his weapons program after it was deccimated in '91, and that he posed no threat what-so-ever to the US, etc. No facts could sway them now. So, why do I even bother writing this? I'm hoping that if enough of us "Army of Davids" scream the truth from the roof tops, some-body's bound to listen.

Here's a great article from FrontPage magazine, concerning what the media's not telling you about the tapes and documents. An excerpt:
Frontpage Interview’s guest today is Ryan Mauro, who spoke at the recent 2006 International Intelligence Summit on
Iraq. He is the 19-year old author of Death to America: The Unreported Battle of Iraq and founder of WorldThreats.com. He was originally hired at age 16 as a geopolitical analyst for Tactical Defense Concepts. He is also a volunteer analyst and researcher for the Northeast Intelligence Network and the Reform Party of Syria and believed to be the youngest hired geopolitical analyst in the country.

Glazov: The recent Intelligence Summit released 12 hours of audiotapes of Saddam Hussein and his key officials discussing their WMD programs from the mid-1990s onwards. What do you make of the significance of these tapes? How do they square with your claim in your book that Russia helped move Iraqi WMD into Syria?

Mauro: The tapes are extremely significant in that they prove, beyond a shadow of a doubt, that as of the year 2000, Saddam Hussein had a secret plasma program to enrich uranium for nuclear weapons, or "special bombs" as he calls them. The Duelfer Report previously concluded that this type of enrichment program ended in the 1980s, but here we have Saddam and his top advisors discussing using a power plant in the area of Basra for the program. The scientists involved in the program are not known to the UN, leaving Western intelligence clueless.

On the tapes, you hear Saddam discussing the assistance of Russia and Brazil in dealing with the United Nations. He laughs off inspections, as his son-in-law who later defects, Hussein Kamil, reports how as late as 1995 their chemical and biological programs were being hidden from the world. They also discuss keeping the ingredients for these weapons separate, so that should they be found, they will be looked at as innocent dual-use items. They were not destroyed in 1991 as the Duelfer Report concludes. There are even indications on the tapes that Iraq may have had a role in the 2001 anthrax attacks.

My book was the first to make the claim that Russia was involved in moving Iraq's WMDs to Syria. After all the nay saying and criticizing I received for it, testimony at the Summit confirmed that this was true.

Glazov: What exactly is the evidence that Iraq moved its WMD into Syria?

Mauro: It has been confirmed across the board that 18-wheelers were seen going into Syria before the war, crossing the border soon after Iraqi intelligence replaced the border guards and cleared nearby areas for their passage. There are also eyewitness reports of the trucks going into Syria, and eyewitness reports of their burial in Lebanon.

The trucks with the weapons were tracked to three locations in Syria and Lebanon's Bekaa Valley, currently controlled by the Syrians, Iranians and Hezbollah. Sources I've spoken with that have seen satellite photos of the movements confirm that the WMD in Syria are at military bases, while the ones in Lebanon are buried. A fourth site in Syria, the al-Safir WMD and missile site, should also be looked at. From spring to summer 2002, there was a lot of construction here involving the expansion of underground complexes.

We have tremendous testimony as well, by General Georges Sada, the former second-in-command of Saddam's Air Force that 56 flights took place on converted Iraqi Airways planes in the summer of 2002 to transport weapons, along with a ground shipment. He claims to know the pilots involved. A second Iraqi general, Ali Ibrahim al-Tikriti, in an interview I published, confirmed in detail the movement of WMD into Syria saying that discussion on such a move went back to the 1980s. He claims his sources for this include Iraqi scientists and others in the regime that were very close to him even after he defected. He confirmed to me that Russian vehicles, including ones equipped to handle hazardous materials, were used. Reports of WMD being moved out of Iraq to Syria go back to 1997, and it is believed by many that weapons were moved in and out of Iraq using Syria routinely since the mid-1990s.

The Italian media also reported that their intelligence services had information indicating that in January and February of 2003, Iraqi CDs full of formulas and research work along with tubes of anthrax and botulinum toxin were sent off to Syria. By the end of February, Iraqi WMD expertise was already in Syria including a top nuclear physicist.

An Iraqi scientist also led Coalition forces to hidden stockpiles of precursor chemicals that could be used to make chemical and biological weapons. The scientist said some facilities and weapons were destroyed, and the rest were sent to Syria. Syrian defectors are also claiming that Syria is where the weapons are, along with Representative Curt Weldon's source in his new book. The Prime Minister of Albania even stated that based on information he has which is not available to the media, he cannot rule out such a transfer.

There is also a report that an Iraqi medium-range al-Hussein missile on a truck moved into Syria, and in the early stages of the war, was spotted briefly coming into Iraq, operating its radar overnight, and returning to Syria. Most reports about the transfer indicate missiles were included in the transfers.
