Saddam’s WMDs in Syria?


Dismissed by the chattering classes and intelligentsia as more evidence of the idiocy of American conservatives, it now seems the conservatives may have been correct. Israeli and American officials are set to release a joint report claiming Saddam Hussein managed to scuttle Iraq’s remaining WMDs out of the country and into Syria. This was reported by AFP and other media outlets in 2004 and again in 2006. These WMDs were reportedly the target of Israel’s air strike in Syria last fall (Sep 2007). The Jpost reports:

An upcoming joint US-Israel report on the September 6 IAF strike on a Syrian facility will claim that former Iraqi president Saddam Hussein transferred weapons of mass destruction to the country, Channel 2 stated Monday.

Furthermore, according to a report leaked to the TV channel, Syria has arrested 10 intelligence officials following the assassination of Hizbullah terror chief Imad Mughniyeh.

  1. I will take a “believe it when I see it” stance, but even if it is reveled that Saddam moved these arms to Syria, it won’t stop the anti-liberation crowd from spewing the same one-liners.

    They continue to look at Iraq through one prism alone, and that is one where Bush is an evildoer who just wanted to ruin a “secular” state for oil, or the joos, or whatever.
