Over the course of the 2nd Gulf War, it was propounded that the Bush II’s administration, including the CIA, had manufactured evidence and alluded to potential evidence of materials necessary to produce Weapons of Mass Destruction (WMDs). During the next several years, many complaints were issued by various organizations stating this evidence falsely led Congress to believe Iraq was a serious threat to the World. Many different accusations were thrown about, mostly from the left and those opposed to “anything Bush.”
Within the last 5-7 years, much has come to light in regards to the real evidence, proving beyond a shadow of doubt that Weapons of Mass Destruction did in fact exist in Iraq, prior to and after the fall of Saddam Hussein.
In this most recent story from the UK Telegraph, atomic material, suitable for low-grade weapons development, was stolen by rebel forces that are slowly taking control of Iraq, as a direct result of U.N. and U.S. forces pulling out of the country.
“… the Iraqi ambassador to the UN wrote a letter to told Ban Ki-moon, the organisation’s secretary general on 8th July in which he warned that almost 40kg (88lb) of uranium compounds had been removed from the university which, as per the rest of Iraq’s second city of Mosul, is now under the control of the jihadists from the Islamic States..”
Further, in recent days, the BBC has reported that Iraq confirms that rebels have overtaken a facility where various chemical weapons were being stored in anticipation of future destruction in line with U.N. policies:
- Began operations in the early 1980s soon after Saddam Hussein took power
- Before the first Gulf War, produced 4,000 tonnes a year of chemical warfare agent
- Mustard gas, sarin and VX nerve agent were among those produced
- Site used by UN inspectors to destroy chemical production facilities and equipment
If there was ever any doubt to the existence of “Weapons of Mass Destruction” in Iraq, this is PROOF POSITIVE of said WMDs and adds validity to the information provided by the CIA and the Bush administration to the American People and the Congress for the justification of entering Iraq following September 11, 2001. This isn’t the first time we’ve heard of these WMDs actually being located and it won’t be the last. It’s time that deniers finally come forward and admit they were wrong and apologize to President Bush, Vice President Cheney and the entire Bush Administration for their accusations.
