    These are nothing new. They were old, forgotten, inactive chemical weapons.  They had no plans to use them. We knew about, and reported them, years ago.

      Interesting. You knew Saddam well enough to know the WMDs were inactive and that he had no plans to use them. Tell that to the Kurds he poison gassed.

      • Bill

        He poison gassed them in the 1980’s. He disassembled and inactivated the weapons in 1991. My link that I posted (and you subsequently DELETED) showed you this.

        Here’s the link again.

          He diassembled and inactivated hem in 1991? Said who, Saddam? You’ll beleive anything, won’t you.

          • Bill

            No, not Saddam, the report, that you obviously didn’t read. They tested them based on how inert and expired the gas was.

            “Since 2003, coalition forces have recovered approximately 500 weapons
            munitions which contain degraded mustard or sarin nerve agent.”

            Degraded. They were old weapons. They didn’t work.

            “While a small number of old, abandoned chemical munitions have
            been discovered, ISG judges that Iraq unilaterally destroyed its
            undeclared chemical weapons stockpile in 1991. There are no credible
            Indications that Baghdad resumed production of chemical munitions
            thereafter”

            Just what America needs, another apoligist for the Iraqi dictator. Are you also stating George Bush was wrong to go into Irag? That he did so simply to punish Saddam and allow this country to get its hands on oil? There are creditable reports most of teh WMDs were moved to Syria when Saddam’s generals knew the war was lost. I bet you don’t believe that either.

          • Bill

            I don’t support Saddam. He was a monster, and his fall was a good thing. But Bush was completely wrong to go into Iraq. He did go in there for revenge and oil. Now show me these reports.

      Well, I did this article several months ago and sometimes these things do just die away. But in this case I beleive you’re correct, the Obama administration, the Democratic Party and the elite media will NOT give and credit or a “good show” to any Republican much less George Bush”

    This
    article is bullshit, both the writer and GWB are liars:

    After the 1990-1991 Persian Gulf
    War, the United
    Nations located and destroyed large quantities of Iraqi chemical
    weapons and related equipment and materials throughout the early 1990s, with
    varying degrees of Iraqi cooperation and obstruction.[1]
    In response to diminishing Iraqi cooperation with UNSCOM, the United States
    called for withdrawal of all UN and IAEA inspectors in 1998, resulting in Operation Desert Fox. The United States
    and the UK asserted that Saddam Hussein still possessed large hidden stockpiles
    of WMD in 2003, and that he was clandestinely procuring and producing more.
    Inspections by the UN to resolve the status of unresolved disarmament questions
    restarted from November 2002 until March 2003, under UN Security Council Resolution 1441,
    which demanded Saddam give “immediate, unconditional and active
    cooperation” with UN and IAEA inspections, shortly before his country was
    attacked.

    During
    the lead-up to war in March 2003, Hans Blix had found no stockpiles of WMD and
    had made significant progress toward resolving open issues of disarmament
    noting “proactive” but not always the “immediate” Iraqi
    cooperation as called for by UN Security Council Resolution 1441. He concluded
    that it would take “but months” to resolve the key remaining disarmament tasks.
    The United States asserted this was a breach of Resolution 1441 but failed to
    convince the UN Security Council to pass a new resolution authorizing the use
    of force due to lack of evidence. Despite being unable to get a new resolution
    authorizing force and citing section 3 of the Joint Resolution passed by the
    U.S. Congress, President George W.
    Bush asserted peaceful measures could not disarm Iraq of the weapons
    he alleged it to have and launched a second Gulf
    War, despite multiple dissenting opinions and questions of integrity
    about the underlying intelligence. Later U.S.-led inspections agreed that Iraq
    had earlier abandoned its WMD programs
