Syria and Saddam's Chemical Weapons


Wow, where did Syria get all those chemical weapons? From IBD here's a clue that we considered on the show today:
The irony here is that the chemical weapons stockpile of Syrian thug Assad may in large part be the legacy of weapons moved from Hussein's Iraq into Syria before Operation Iraqi Freedom.
If so, this may be the reason not much was found in the way of WMD by victorious U.S. forces in 2003.
In 2006, former Iraqi general Georges Sada, second in command of the Iraqi Air Force who served under Saddam Hussein before he defected, wrote a comprehensive book, "Saddam's Secrets."
It details how the Iraqi Revolutionary Guard moved weapons of mass destruction into Syria in advance of the U.S.-led action to eliminate Hussein's WMD threat.
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.

  2. Hi Iago,

    Yes, the President is too smart to fall for that one. Good thing Assad will do anything to avoid a stern scolding by the President from his vacation place in Hawaii. And with luck,there will another youtube video to use as cover for another Susan Rice marathon.
