really i want an honest answer, a simple easy honest answer.
the MSM took so long to report on them because it was CLASSIFIED. that means they dont tell the you or the press about it.
In the six key points of the FOX memo two things really stand out to me:
The term "degraded," as in degraded
mustard or sarin nerve agent, and the phrase "assessed," as in "Despite many effort to locate and
destroy Iraq's pre-Gulf War chemical munitions, filled and unfilled pre-Gulf War munitions are assessed
I suspect that in the full text of the still classified version you find that that the majority of the "degraded" chemical agents found were
actually the residue from spent shells used in Kurdish and Iranian campaigns. Remember, this is the same administration that sent Colin Powell to the
U.N. with "proof" of the Iraqi nuclear weapons program. Could the administration's global intelligence claims on this vague document have any less
So sure, you can say there were
weapons of mass destruction in the form of a relative few chemical munitions. So tell me, as one of the few
remaining Bush loyalists, were these weapons worth:
1. The death of 4000+ Americans,
2. Destruction of our economy,
3. Destabilization of the region,
4. A rise in global terrorism,
5. Eroding of our constitutional rights,
6. And our resulting loss of status, reputation, and influence in world affairs?
Too bad the American press doesn't have the guts to do what the Irish reporter did. Perhaps we could have mitigated some of the damage of what will
go down as the most disasterous presidency in our nation's history
The sooner Bush and his cronies are relegated to the garbage heap of history the better off we all are.
