    A reprint for those who don't want to look in the 5 page thread by a different name to find the info. I am going to delete it from there so it is not redundant:

    From http://www.debka.com/article.php?aid=448 on 3/24/03:
    From http://www.debka.com/article.php?aid=456
    Then this: http://www.debka.com/article.php?aid=464, http://www.debka.com/article.php?aid=465, http://www.debka.com/article.php?aid=466, http://www.debka.com/article.php?aid=471, http://www.debka.com/article.php?aid=515

    There was one with all the information compiled with all of the maps and such in the first or second week, but I couldn't seem to find it. These ought to get you started.

    I think its interesting and I'll keep it in mind. However, I don't know how credible all the sites are. When I get some freetime I'll start looking through them.

    Here's a background on the one source that softcom lists, UPI.

    They seem to have been established for a pretty long time.

    Here's the background on Debka.

    A much younger group respectively but they seem to have established a good independent base of journalism.

    In my opinion, Debka is beyond reproach with their news reporting. They aren't biased in anyway at all and have lots of inside scoops from around the world. Fair and balanced. Again, just my opinion.

    I wholeheartedly agree. Their credentials are backed up by undisputed fact that sometimes only comes to light years later.

    Most of the time, the most wacko stuff that appears really seems so because they are the only source reporting it. -Then you find others jump on the bandwagon when it is politically advantagous for some politican, and a few years down the road, the facts prove debka right.

    I go there first for anything involving the mid-east.

    Exactly, that's their strong point.

    After reading through Debka, they seem to be a great site. I'll add this into my list of sites I check everyday for news.

    On the Syria point, it seems very likely they were moved there, but I don't see any info on how much was moved there. Right now I see this as a possibility along with that the weapons could have been destroyed in the first place, buried, or the scientists just didn't make the weapons. Of course it could be a combination of all 4.
