Almost 2 years after the invasion of Iraq, the US is officially ending their search for weapons of mass destruction in Iraq. Inspectors had been in Iraq following up on any leads that came their way as well as going through hundreds of documents but are now finishing up their final report and will end any further investigation

U.S. inspectors have ended their search for weapons of mass destruction in Iraq in recent weeks, a U.S. intelligence official told CNN.

The search ended almost two years after President Bush ordered the invasion of Iraq, citing concerns that Saddam Hussein was building weapons of mass destruction and may have hidden weapons stockpiles.

Members of the Iraq Survey Group were continuing to examine hundreds of documents and would investigate any new leads, the official said.

To all those that continue to believe that Iraq has WMD and are hiding them, you might now have to change your tune. If there was the smallest possibility that WMD would yet be found, you can bet the search would continue.

They were moved out of Iraq long ago Saddam did the same thing with many of his fighter planes during the first Gulf War flew them to Iran. .

No possibility of Condi's mushroom cloud, no viles of anthrax that would decimate the US, no imminate threat to even, Jordan, much less a threat to the United States---But Sadamm was a bad guy. But being a bad guy didn't stop Cheny from doing business with him in 1997.

So Bush wanted to leave his mark on the world by spreading peace and Democracy through-out the middle-east, and all he's going to be remembered for, by those who think for themselves, is took his country to war under false pretenses. Those of you who have lost friends or realtives in Iraq will someday have to accept, they died in a war based on lies, and I feel for you.

Of course they had them, the US and other countries sold them to Iraq. As for what happened to them, they were destroyed and dismantled according to the UN resolution which imposed sanctions in demand for Iraq dismantling it's WMD program. They did, and the investigators making sure they did said they did, and now the investigators looking for the non-existant weapons have said they don't have any. What more do you want?

Once more all those people who keep saying Bush made false pretenses to take us to war, remember that Clinton being 8 years in office also said the same thing and said something must be done about it, and did it attacking Iraq and formed another coalition for more attacks before he left office, but nooo, you have to use any excuse to further your own propaganda and proclaim only Bush and his administration made up these claims...


Deny ignorance I say, look at the facts, how many countries were saying that this was true....all those countries which opposed the war were making illegal weapons deals with Iraq, selling banned materials, technologies and weapons, and using the Oil-For-food program to become richer while people died, and now most people are aware of how corrupt the UN and most if not all of those countries that opposed the war are. Once Saddam was out of power, all these countries would not be able to get their hands in the cookie jar, meanwhile using those same sanctions to make money for all those countries which opposed the war killed from 560,000 Iraqi children, up to 1,000,000 Iraqis according to the reports by the Iraqi interim government.

Actually if you would have made some research you would have found in these same forums tons of documented evidence that mostly the Russians, along with the Chinese and even the French among others were the ones providing all these banned weapons and materials.

Former Russian high ranking military defectors even said this before, during and after the war, and mentioned that there was a Russian plan called "Serindar" if my memory serves me, in which the Russians helped Iraq/Saddam hide, transport and get rid of most evidence of wmd programs in Iraq, leaving behind only the documents needed to pick up the programs once the US, or any other country left Iraq, documents which we found by the tons, along with banned materials and parts which obviously they didn't have time to get rid of.

Mauddib: Clinton did bomb the iraqi's under the provisions set-up by the first bush administration and the UN. The bombing of Iraqui's violations of the no-fly zones was one reason Saddam was unable to carry-on his wmd programs, and one of the reasons we should have never went to war.

Now we've shown our cards and the world knows were not very good at fighting wars.

What Muaddib said.

Plus, this morning I was listening to two US Senators (one Dem, One Rep) who said that the report should be read very carefully, and not to interpret it as a conclusion that Saddam did not have WMDs as late as the end of 2002. They pointed to sat photos of truck convoys crossing the border into Syria.

Really?, is that why we have found that many countries in the UN were making illegal deals with Iraq using OFF to sell, banned weapons, military technology etc before the war to Iraq?

Clinton was the president at the time, not either Bush, or Bush Sr, Clinton along with most democrats in power at the time saw the intelligence and were making the same claims that the Bush adminitration made before the war.

BTW, let me add one more comment, the last thing, or one of the last, that Clinton did was to call up and form a coalition to deal with Iraq's wmd once and for all.

Mauddib: Clinton was paying attention to thew whole presidential agenda. Bush came into office having already been directed to find a way to attack Iraq. Clinton's answer would never have been shock and awe, he would have tightened the screws for sure.

never fails to amuse me how conservative couch potato commandos continue to put a spin on this one

many in the military laughed at the Jessica Lynch story - knew it was BS and propaganda just as we laughed at WMDs in Iraq

the simplicity of WMDs in the hands of a "crazier N. Korea" simply eludes many to this day

the problem now - soldiers are dead and families are mourning

My $0.02
The main reason given for this war was WMD's. We have seen surveilance photos from the US with "Big Rigs" parked out in front of areas that were labeled to contain WMD's. Why in God's name did they not keep surveilance on them? If they were there to begin with, why were they allowed to be moved? Why was this able to happen? I would have done everything in my power to make sure they: a) Stayed in place or b) were kept track of. It seems neither of these were that important.

Noooo! Please, American tax payers, please tell your government to keep searching. You don't want the insurgents to find a nuclear weapon -- I mean what if a hundred of them carrying it charge(head of missle first) into a US base shouting Allah-u-akbar! That could be disasterous!

My god indigo you are so right


The same way the "insurgents" are using the "unattended explosives" to cause so much mayhem, will find those MWDs and there you go a nuclear holocaust, I tell you Mr. Bush can not win either way.

Next time a nuclear devised blow up in Iraq we will have to blame it on the lack of survellance.

What? We supplied WMD to a terrorist? OMG. lol We can't find the WMD that we gave to him. Maybe we shouldn't have given them to him in the first place.

Despite no weapons of mass destruction and hundreds of thosands killed this is what Bush has to say:

Jan. 12, 2005 — The invasion of Iraq, which ousted Saddam Hussein and has cost the lives of some 1,300 U.S. military personnel and billions of dollars, was "absolutely" worth it, despite the absence of any weapons of mass destruction in Iraq, President Bush told ABC News' Barbara Walters in an exclusive interview that will air this Friday.
