    I guess Saddam's Generals lied too then....

    http://www.renewamerica.us/columns/kouri/060314

    The New York Times reports that just prior to the United States lead invasion, Iraq's dictator Saddam Hussein informed his top generals that he had destroyed his stockpiles of chemical weapons three months before their war plans meeting.

    According to the Times report, the generals all believed Iraq had weapons of mass destruction and were counting on the WMD to repel the oncoming coalition invaders.

    While reporting on this story, Fox News Channel's Bill O'Reilly said he is not surprised that the CIA and other nations believed Saddam had WMD since Hussein's own generals believed they had them. He said that this proves President Bush did not lie and that he believed what Saddam's own generals believed — that Iraq possessed stockpiles of WMD.

    O'Reilly also rhetorically asked when the Democrat Senators Reid, Kennedy, Durbin and others would apologize for calling President Bush a liar about WMD. He also asked when liberals such as Barbara Streisand, Jessica Lange and other would apologize to Bush for calling him a liar.

    According to the Times story, Saddam Hussein wanted the world to believe he possessed WMD in order to create fear and thwart any war plans by the US. The revelation that Saddam's generals believed they would use WMD against American, British and other invading forces explains why the US military found protective gear had been issued to Iraqi soldiers. The top commanders wanted their troops protected from the WMD they intended to use.

    "The Iraqi dictator was so secretive and kept information so compartmentalized that his top military leaders were stunned when he told them three months before the war that he had no weapons of mass destruction, and they were demoralized because they had counted on hidden stocks of poison gas or germ weapons for the nation's defense, " stated the New York Times on March 12.

    The Times story supports the testimony of two former Iraqi generals who said that prior to the war, Saddam was in possession of WMD.

    Thanks for the article CP, unfortunately, the liberals won`t open their eyes` or their minds long enough to read it.

    I`ve believed all along there was WMD, but as most know, we didn`t invade Iraq based just on WMD. As has been debated long and hard, the intelligent community should bear the heaviest weight, IF we were still playing the "blame game".

    Just imagine, if you can, what a terrible situation we would have in the middle east right now, IF we hadn`t gone in a taken out Saddam, its hard to comprehend. :crutch:

    What are the chances that I would hear this on the radio today and then come online and you have posted it?

    There was an Iraqi Air Force General on the local radio today talking about how they moved the WMD before the US got there, during the Syrian natural disasters in the middle of "goodwill" shipments they included these both by air and by ground.

    Where's CNN? Shouldn't they be eating this with a fork and spoon? After all they ARE responsible for our flow of information, why the hell aren't they correcting themselves?

    These cranks will apologize when hell freezes over. Or maybe when pigs fly. Choose your saying. It will never happen.

    Forget the apologies; I'd be happy if Babs and Baldwin would just keep their promises to leave the country if Bush won.
