Not Under a Desk After All

Filed under: Politics — lmwalker @ 10:26 am

Reading from unclassified portions of a document developed by the U.S. intelligence community, [Sen. Rick] Santorum said, “Since 2003, coalition forces have recovered approximately 500 weapons munitions which contain degraded mustard or sarin nerve agent. Despite many efforts to locate and destroy Iraq’s pre-Gulf War chemical munitions, filled and unfilled pre-Gulf War chemical munitions are assessed to still exist.”

So . . . there are weapons of mass destruction in Iraq?

The news is being all kinds of downplayed in the press because the weapons are old and have degraded. However, if I recall correctly, Hussein was supposed to destroy all such weapons, not just the shiny ones. Apparently, he did not.

Big surprise.

  1. Nice try, but the US did not go to war to find old sarin shells. Can’t we all just agree that the war was a mistake and try to make the best of it?

  2. I think the biggest mistake was the UN shirking their supposed responsibility to enforce their own sanctions.
