Iraq Chemical Weapons Moved to Syria Before 2003 Invasion?

JULY 2012

James Clapper, Director of National Intelligence in the Obama Administration, thought so.

From the Daily Beast:

Whether or not sensitive weapons technology was moved to Syria is a hotly disputed question in the intelligence community. James Clapper, now the Director of National Intelligence and formerly the director of the National Geospatial Intelligence Agency, said in 2003 that he believed materials had been moved out of Iraq in the months before the war and cited satellite imagery.

If the Bashar al-Assad regime falls, and should the securing of the chemical and biological stockpiles of Syria be necessary, what would be the effect if some of those materials and munitions bear Iraqi markings?

Former Iraqi General Sada asserted that Saddam’s chemical stockpile was lifted, in his book “Saddam’s Secrets” and summarized by Investor’s Business Daily:

As Sada told the New York Sun, two Iraqi Airways Boeings were converted to cargo planes by removing the seats, and special Republican Guard units loaded the planes with chemical weapons materials.

There were 56 flights disguised as a relief effort after a 2002 Syrian dam collapse.

The IBD article also mentions Israeli General Yaalon’s assertions, and those of John Shaw regarding Russian assistance in the form of former KGB General Primakov:

There were also truck convoys into Syria. Sada’s comments came more than a month after Israel’s top general during Operation Iraqi Freedom, Moshe Yaalon, told the Sun that Saddam “transferred the chemical agents from Iraq to Syria.”

Both Israeli and U.S. intelligence observed large truck convoys leaving Iraq and entering Syria in the weeks and months before Operation Iraqi Freedom, John Shaw, former deputy undersecretary of defense for international technology security, told a private conference of former weapons inspectors and intelligence experts held in Arlington, Va., in 2006.

According to Shaw, ex-Russian intelligence chief Yevgeni Primakov, a KGB general with long-standing ties to Saddam, went to Iraq in December 2002 and stayed until just before the U.S.-led invasion in March 2003.

Anticipating the invasion, his job was to supervise the removal of such weapons and erase as much evidence of Russian involvement as possible.

An interesting statement from Brian Sayers, the director of government relations for the Syria Support Group:

We believe that if the United States does not act urgently, there is a real risk of a political vacuum in Syria, including the possibility of a dispersion of chemical weapons to rogue groups such as Hezbollah.”

What of a regime such as Saddam Hussein’s in Iraq that was suspected of actively attempting to peddle such weapons?

Should these suspicions surrounding Iraq’s possible pre-invasion transfer of its remaining chemical stockpile be confirmed, the silence being heard in the media regarding them will have been deafening.

*************************************************************

Just in case folks still wanted to debate the existence of Syria’s stockpile, I think we might have our answer.   How many carry Iraqi markings?  How many, Russian?

 

So, with this, one with any sense could see that by Saddam not making this transfer evident it only reinforced his enemies perception he still possess the weapons.
This is not absolutely confirm-able, but makes good sense in the light of Saddams  strategy in projecting strength to his enemies.

Had anyone one known he shipped them off he would be vulnerable to attacks by enemies.

Saddam confessed to FBI interrogator  Piro that this charade projecting possesion was his best deterrent against Iranian and American invasion

9/11/12 The October Surprise

Courtesy of “The Blaze”

Minute by minute, additional information concerning the terror attack in Benghazi that left Ambassador Christopher Stevens, Navy SEALs Tyrone Woods and Glen Doherty and an additional civil servant dead is coming to light. A new report by Fox News’ Catherine Herridge reveals that a mere two days after the deadly siege on our diplomatic outpost in Libya on the eleventh anniversary of 9/11, officials from the FBI and National Counterterrorism Center (NCTC) each gave briefings on Capitol Hill in which they confirmed that the evidence supported al Qaeda and al Qaeda-affiliates were the ones responsible for the attack.

Watch the report below:
When one considers the timeline of events, juxtaposing intelligence agencies’ confirmation that the attack was brought to bear by al Qaeda and its affiliates and was not simply a spontaneous ”flash mob” spawned by a low-budget YouTube video, the picture appears grim for President Obama.

Recall that on the same day as the FBI and NCTC briefings (September 13), administration officials were still peddling the narrative that a video critical of Islam was the catalyst for the attack. Also recall that on September 25, Obama took to the floor of the UN and in a lengthy speech, linked the carnage in Benghazi to that same video no less than six times.

The Fox report informs that the FBI and NCTC assessment of the events in Benghazi were based on “intercepts that included individuals believed to have participated in the attack” and who had openly rejoiced at the devastation they had waged. TheBlaze of course also reported on the string of emails sent to the administration from the pro-al Qaeda organization Ansar al-Sharia a mere two hours after the siege in Benghazi in which the group claimed credit for the attack.

A response to a friend in hopes it will create more

I lifted this from Tygrr Express since for some reason my comments wont stick there.

August Hate Mail
August Hate Mail

Today is just a small standard batch of hate mail from leftists. Being a leftist means getting as far into the gutter as possible. Like in the movie “Animal Farm,” one can look at the animals and the leftists and not be ale to tell which was which.

With that, here is a slice of August hate mail.

“Carl
crawford@hotmail.com

Absolutely fantastic piece, we were laughing our heads off! I have e-mailed this to everybody… Please keep these coming. Perhaps your new tagline should read "consummate oven-dodging baby-baby man Eric Golub will hiss and spit his way through his own feces" weeee…Please do not stop with the satire! Please please please please : ) this is funnier than anything I could've ever imagined … oh my I peed a little…”

Analysis: Oven-dodging? Nothing like a pro-Holocaust reference to start the day. The reference to bodily functions was a nice finishing touch, like a vinaigrette on a leftist salad. Keep it classy, Carl.

Hi, forgive me…. I don't live in America so don't know anything about you… I just read your piece /// Barack Obama and Harry Reid's broken liberal souls/// is what you wrote supposed to be some weird comedy piece? Truly you sound deluded and a total fruit loop.”

Analysis: This fellow got off to a good start when he admitted “I don’t live in America so don’t know anything.” I can forgive him for not being born in the greatest nation on Earth, but not for flapping his gums.”

“Kyle
kyleaustinwalker@gmail.com
I found your article on Obama's "Broken Soul" to be the most biased and ignorant piece I have ever had the misfortune of reading. I am not in support of him either, make no mistake, but you are almost on the caliber of Fox News with your hateful one sided commentary.”

Analysis: Fox News is the highest rated cable news network. I guess he thinks a majority of Americans are bigots. I am an opinion writer. I am supposed to be biased. So in my less than humble biased opinion, this fellow is an imbecile.

“Greg
gregpill@gmail.com
why are you such a twisted dick? Your childhood must have been awful.”

Analysis: I had a friend who had to drive himself to the hospital with a Twisted testicle. He voted Peace and Freedom, so I do not see any correlation between having one’s appendage out of whack and voting patterns. Now the brain is a different story, based on modern liberalism. Of course my childhood was awful. Have you ever been to Long Island?

Say it with me everyone. These are liberals. This is how they behave.

eric

I gotta tell you Eric.
I did not own a computer 5-6 years ago.
The original intent was to help my sons studies because like many kids today they dont read books because the pages are to heavy to turn, he was regressing terribly.
Your blog,the first I ever visited 5-6 years ago after we got that computer was responsible for opening my eyes to just how much was wrong with politics, our country…

… AND PEOPLE !

In these last few years I’ve visited hundreds if not thousands of blogs and venues that allow dialogue and will confess I can and have been at times very very nasty, personal and mean.
Although I’m in my 50s and you’re noticeably younger at first sight in person, you’ve been the inspiration thats made me back away from bad behavior and hit my restart button. (more often than not)
The point I’m getting at is that when myself and others have gone profane, vulgar, awry and personal at certain blogs and as a result traffic there decreased because because of meaningless content. Sometimes at one point I would apologize and ask everyone to cooperate in solution searching and reaching agreements if possible in a civil humane manner.
And I’m sorry, I try like hell not to be partisan on this issue because I’m no better when I get pi$$ed.
But I’ll be SOB if the majority of the time its not a moonbat that destroys the civil tempo my request created in no less than a couple days later at the most.
As and addict and liberal who recovered from both simultaneously I know for a fact this behavior comes from emotions unchecked that foster the idea ” if I can humiliate or hurt your feelings I’m right”.
Which is very convenient when in denial or fending off intervention only intended to help me.

Liberalism was a learned behavior for me.
Till this day my Mother (still is) and her new husband are die hard moonbats.
My last trip to the neighbor island to visit them was three days of hell as I had to keep listening to what f******* idiots Conservatives were and how Bush caused all our problems. (although theres an unwritten rule we dont talk politics among family)
Since I began blogging they both had no idea how much more informed I was than them about the political and global issues we face . I guess they thought I blogged to exchange recipes and just shoot the breeze.
Finally, after 3 days of name calling I snapped.
Without profanity or personal insults I downloaded a few points in history into their heads that are documented fact. The CRA, The New Deal, etc.
All of a sudden, according to my own family I’m some f-ing A hole who has nothing better to do than play on my computer all day.
They were astonished to hear that there are blogs that actually pay for my participation.
I showed them the marathon debate on this blog that you, Jersey, The Anti Socialist ,a couple others, and myself had on global warming/environmentalism a few years ago.
Neither mom nor hubby had any idea that the facts disclosed in that debate actually exist. (Too much John Stewart & MSNBC)
Its an excellent read if anyone wants to see civil debate and the standard on just how it should be done.

They dont talk politics around me anymore.
Which is a shame.
Because that only shows an exact example of why we cant get anything done in this country.
The difference, the way I see it, is this.
Liberals think more with the heart. Thats fine.
But unless theres a system in place that makes those heartfelt intentions possible….

…its all in vane, and becomes a very selfish endeavor.

Take care my friend

“Hope And Change” and “Yes We can” has become “Are You Fucking Kidding Me?”

State Subsidized Housing… in this case WHY ?
===============================================

“The state subsidizes some of the units, so there’s a qualification that they must meet.”

As a general guideline, potential gap group buyers must earn a minimum of 84 thousand dollars a year. A single person can’t make more than 102 thousand dollars annually, and two or more buyers’ incomes can’t exceed 114 thousand dollars. Other restrictions apply, as well.”

http://www.hawaiinewsnow.com/Global/story.asp?S=13115606

I’m still trying to figure out who the asshats are that thought people making more than 80 large a year needed state subsidized housing.

STAY TUNED

Here we go.
I swear, this shits just getting way outta hand.

“low and moderate incomes “?

My wife and I dont pull down 80 thousand dollars a year and we bought our own place with no help whatsoever !

Is It Just Me ?

Recently blogging for me has taken a turn. I don’t know if its me or if I’ve just given up trying to have constructive arguments that bring some agreement or consensus.

Dont get me wrong. I’m famous for week-long potty mouth pissing matches that are nothing more than a one-upmanship of whom is the bigger asshole and have absolutely nothing to do with the topic. Used to be there was a regular basis where topics got discussed to a point where it was obvious that two people of different ideologies at least cared about reaching some agreement.  Today it seems there’s not much left to do but criticize, make jokes, mockery, and reflect on the most absurd administration I’ve ever seen.

Theres no point in explaining the failures of socialism, oversized government, it’s over reach into the private sector, lack of individualism, the perils of collectivism…  it’s all a waste of time. It seems non of that matters to any of my opposition. Where it used to be argued that these things were not taking place, now, instead, they’re being argued as the answer.

I’m tired of trying to fight while it seems the other side is just wringing their hands together waiting for utopia oblivious to any conversation being needed.

Is it just me or has it all boiled down to my purpose being nothing more than to make these people aware in the crudest terms just how fucking stupid they are and their choice was ?
I’ve often said that every so often there comes along a generation that thinks they can make socialism and/or communism work because everyone before them had it wrong. I believe were in the midst of one of these generations because it seems that no amount of education to the failures of the past matters to these people. Where did they come from ? Dont tell me Bush’s policies produced them because even with two very expensive but necessary wars and Katrina it still wasnt an eight years that was all that bad deserving this 180 degree turn in our country’s direction.
There is no hope in this presidents vision. There is no long-term ideal that guarantees us any stability be it financially or our national security.
Everything just seems to be reactionary to problems that are none of his making.
That in a sense is bullshit.
Things have only gotten worse halfway thru this mans run and I have a feeling his supporters are tired of hearing “I told ya so’ or are just victims of their own ignorant pride and are still clicking Birkenstocks and wishing for Kansas.
Which, if true, it seems has rendered conversations lately to be reduced on a more frequent level to that of nothing more than pointing out the flawed thinking behind ones beliefs instead of what we can do to stop what I see as total madness.
Have the masses gone melancholy with complacency or do these assholes actually believe the shit were watching will work ?
Is it just me or has the landscape of the discourse changed to where argument is just not necessary anymore ?

Book of Obama Chapter 7

And it came to pass in the Age of Insanity that the people of the land called America, having lost their morals, their initiative, and their will to defend their liberties, chose as their Supreme Leader that person known as “The One”.

He emerged from the vapors with a message that had no meaning; but He hypnotized the people telling them, “I am sent to save you. My lack of experience, my questionable ethics, my monstrous ego, and my association with evil doers are of no consequence. For I shall save you with Hope and Change.

Go, therefore, and proclaim throughout the land that he who preceded me is evil, that he has defiled the nation, and that all he has built must be destroyed.”
And the people rejoiced, for even though they knew not what “The One” would do, He had promised that it was good; and they believed.

And “The One” said “We live in the greatest country in the world. Help me change everything about it!” And the people said, “Hallelujah! Change is good!”

Then He said, “We are going to tax the rich fat-cats.”
And the people said “Sock it to them!”

“And redistribute their wealth.”
And the people said, “Show us the money!”

And then He said, “Redistribution of wealth is good for everybody”

And Joe the plumber asked, “Are you kidding me? You’re going to steal my money and give it to the deadbeats??”
And “The One” ridiculed and taunted him, and Joe’s personal records were hacked and publicized.

One lone reporter asked, “Isn’t that Marxist policy?”
And she was banished from the kingdom!

Then a citizen asked, “With no foreign relations experience and having zero military experience or knowledge, how will you deal with radical terrorists?”

And “The One” said, “Simple. I shall sit with them and talk with them and show them how nice we really are; and they will forget that they ever wanted to kill us all!”

And the people said, “Hallelujah!! We are safe at last, and we can beat our weapons into free cars for the people!”

Then “The One” said, “I shall give 95% of you lower taxes.”

And one, lone voice said, “But 40% of us don’t pay ANY taxes.”

So “The One” said, “Then I shall give you some of the taxes the fat-cats pay!”

And the people said, “Hallelujah!! Show us the money!”

Then “The One” said, “I shall tax your Capital Gains when you sell your homes!”

And the people yawned and the slumping housing market collapsed.

And He said, “I shall mandate employer- funded health care for EVERY worker and raise the minimum wage. And I shall give every person unlimited healthcare and medicine and transportation to the clinics.”

And the people said, “Give me some of that!”

Then He said, “I shall penalize employers who ship jobs overseas.”

And the people said, “Where’s my rebate check?”

Then “The One” said, “I shall bankrupt the coal industry and electricity rates will skyrocket!”

And the people said, “Coal is dirty, coal is evil, no more coal! But we don’t care for that part about higher electric rates.”

So “The One” said, “Not to worry. If your rebate isn’t enough to cover your expenses, we shall bail you out. Just sign up with ACORN and your troubles are over!”

Then He said, “Illegal immigrants feel scorned and slighted. Let’s grant them amnesty, Social Security, free education, free lunches, free medical care, bi-lingual signs and guaranteed housing…”

And the people said, “Hallelujah!!” And they made him King!

And so it came to pass that employers, facing spiraling costs and ever-higher taxes, raised their prices and laid off workers. Others simply gave up and went out of
business and the economy sank like unto a rock dropped from a cliff. The banking industry was destroyed. Manufacturing slowed to a crawl. And more of the people were without a means of support.

Then “The One” said, “I am the “The One” – The Messiah – and I’m here to save you! We shall just print more money so everyone will have enough!”

But our foreign trading partners said unto Him, “Wait a minute. Your dollar is not worth a pile of camel dung! You will have to pay more…”

And the people said, “Wait a minute. That is unfair!!”

And the world said, “Neither are these other idiotic programs you have embraced. Lo, you have become a Socialist state and a second-rate power. Now you shall play by our rules!”

And the people cried out, “Alas, alas!! What have wedone?”

But yea verily, it was too late. The people set upon “The One” and spat upon him and stoned him, and his name was dung. And the once mighty nation was
no more; and the once proud people were without sustenance or shelter or hope. And the Change “The One” had given them was as like unto a poison that had destroyed them and like a whirlwind that consumed all that they had built.

And the people beat their chests in despair and cried out in anguish, “Give us back our nation and our pride and our hope!!” But it was too late, and their homeland was no more.

You may think this is a fairy tale, but it’s not.
It’s happening RIGHT NOW !!!

Smiles That make You Go Hmm…

 

I’ll keep this one short and sweet.

People that smile in the face of anything have always made me suspicious.

Yeah, by now we all know what the deal is with this woman. I think the more important and relevant question is why are we not putting as much energy into convicting those that truly do mean us harm ?

Has it occured to anyone that the left has put more energy into convicting those that tried (and have more than likely succeeded) to save American lives than the ones who actually killed 3000 of us ?

I think we all need to wake up to just how out of control all this shit has gotten. Were allowed to stand for what we believe is our patriotic duty but I think the priorities are little mixed up at this point in our history when were applying more energy into the rights and care for those that mean us harm than we are those who are trying to save American lives.

When the hatred of one man has led a party to go as far as this woman has gone we have reached a point in our society where we need to tell our government to stop where its at and don’t sign or do a damn thing until we get this kind of mindset out from our leadership.

Murtha and his slander of our troops kinda got to me, Kerry and his idiotic representations of the war got to me, code pink and that whole scene along with the lefts hypocrisy (we hate all you’re doing, but support you) has been troubling but nothing I couldn’t handle.

Pelosi is the straw that broke the camels back, enough already.
