Saddam had WMD

Investor's Business Daily. Translated tapes reveal WMD possession by Saddam Hussein. Sadly, you may have heard about this first at the London Fog, just like I stumbled across it at FreeDominion.

Nobody disputes the tapes' authenticity. On them, Saddam talks openly of programs involving biological, chemical and, yes, nuclear weapons.

In a tape dating to April 1995, Saddam and several aides discuss the fact that U.N. inspectors had found traces of Iraq's biological weapons program. On the tape, Hussein Kamel, Saddam's son-in-law, is heard gloating about fooling the inspectors.

"We did not reveal all that we have," he says. "Not the type of weapons, not the volume of the materials we imported, not the volume of the production we told them about, not the volume of use. None of this was correct."

...

These are extraordinary developments. They deserve a full airing in the media, since they essentially validate part of Bush's casus belli for invading Iraq and deposing the murderous Saddam.

Old tapes, likely containing nothing but rhetoric.

And, no, the WMD were not shipped to Syria either. That was debunked as well.

Why to acts of blind faith rely on things being 'debunked'?
"Evolution is only a theory"
"That was debunked as well"

Yes, yes, even if Saddam had WMDs, he still didn't have them.

It's been three years now, hasn't it? Surely by now the Americans would have found them if they still existed. You gotta give them some credit.

The Americans, if they have found some, have likely taken them back home quietly where they came from.
