Since the mainstream media is lying that no evidence of weapons of mass destruction has been found in Iraq, let’s read what the WMD hunters really have to say.
We have discovered dozens of WMD-related program activities and significant amounts of equipment that Iraq concealed from the United Nations during the inspections that began in late 2002. The discovery of these deliberate concealment efforts have come about both through the admissions of Iraqi scientists and officials concerning information they deliberately withheld and through physical evidence of equipment and activities that ISG [Iraq Survey Group] has discovered that should have been declared to the UN….
The article then lists specific violation of UN resolutions for Iraqi WMD. Yes, the weapons themselves weren’t found, but no one actually disputes that Saddam had the stuff. It’s like entering a room locked from the outside and finding a dead man on the floor, a knife wound in his heart, and another man in the same room with blood on his hands, and defensive wounds on him, but no knife. Who is the murderer?
Contrary to all the complaints of a “rush to war” by Bush, the slow movement to war may have given Saddam time to effectively hide or disperse his WMD. And it wouldn’t that hard to do. All of the chemical and biological weapons at his disposal, enough to kill millions of people, would have fit in a couple of swimming pools. How hard do you think it would be to hide that in a country the size of Iraq?
President Bush said this morning that Kay’s findings “make clear that Saddam Hussein actively deceived the international community, that Saddam Hussein was in clear violation of United Nations Security Council Resolution 1441, and that Saddam Hussein was a danger to the world.” No one can argue with that.
The president did not mislead us to go to war and removing Saddam from power was the right thing to do.
