Libya's PM confirms presence of chemical weapons
I posted this in the thread claiming nukes were found. I think the post works well here. So,,,,,,,
Bush official: Libya's nuclear program a surprise
December 19, 2003
Libya's nuclear weapons program was "much further advanced" than U.S. and British intelligence agencies had thought, and included centrifuges and a uranium-enrichment program, all necessary components in making a nuclear bomb, a senior Bush administration official said Friday.
"Libya admitted to nuclear fuel-cycle projects that were intended to support a nuclear weapons program, weapons development, including uranium enrichment," this official said.
The acknowledgment of a nuclear program marked the first time Libya has ever done so. The U.S. and British governments said Friday that Libya has agreed to abandon its weapons of mass destruction programs and to allow international weapons inspectors into the country.
The Bush official said Libya also showed a team of United Nations and British inspectors "a significant amount of mustard" gas -- a lethal nerve agent that can cause internal and external bleeding. The gas was produced more than a decade ago, the official said

Disarming Libya: Weapons of Mass

On December 19, 2003, Libya announced it would dismantle its weapons of mass
destruction (WMD) and ballistic missile programs. Since then, U.S., British, and
international officials have inspected and removed or destroyed key components of those
programs, and Libya has provided valuable information, particularly about foreign
suppliers. Libya’s WMD disarmament is a critical step towards reintegration into the
world community, and a necessary but probably not sufficient prerequisite for lifting
U.S. sanctions. This report will be updated as needed. See also CRS Issue Brief IB
93109, Libya, by Clyde Mark
So what happened? Did Lybia show us everything? Why weren't all the weapons destroyed? What's the whole story?
Of course they did not show us everything. I am sincerely hopeful that whatever government winds up in control in Libya, they follow the exiting PM's lead in the desire to get rid of chemical weapons.
Obama's war for political points seems to be backfiring...
That's the entire fucking point with this Libya debacle of Obama's.
We have known about his nerve agent and mustard gas caches since 9/11/2001 (really before that).
Obama unleashed this mess with not accepting the fact that he knows shit about his stuff and has zero experience with it. But, damned if HE knows that.
This is what the intel community has been saying about this all along, but somehow this moron thought he knew better with all his "community organizer" bullshit experience.
