The truth is that there was a lot more grey area when it comes to Iraq’s WMDs than people like to admit. As a matter of fact, that grey area is still being cleaned up today.
Britain will help the Iraqi government dispose of what’s left of deposed Iraqi dictator Saddam Hussein’s chemical weapons, still stored in two bunkers in north of Baghdad, the British embassy in Baghdad announced Monday.
…Most of Iraq’s chemical weapons were destroyed by military forces in 1991 during the first Gulf War or by U.N. inspectors after the fighting. The inspections halted just before the invasion.
…The head of the Iraqi National Authority, Mohammed Al Sharaa, said the remnants “represent a great challenge to the Iraqi experts to safely dispose.” He called the agreement with British authorities “a good opportunity for Iraqi experts to benefit from the well-known expertise of U.K. experts.”
You often hear liberals say that we didn’t find Weapons of Mass Destruction in Iraq.
That’s not true.
Not only did we find pre-Gulf War WMDs, Iraq was prepped and ready to make more WMDs at a moment’s notice and senior Iraqi officials admitted Saddam planned to restart the program.
That doesn’t mean Bush was 100% right because he believed our intelligence agencies which had concluded, just like the French, British, Israelis, etc., etc., that Saddam had post-Gulf-War WMD stockpiles. But, it’s time for Bush’s critics to admit he wasn’t 100% wrong either.
