Bush could be vindicated soon when it comes to light that many of the chemical weapons Syria holds are actually from Saddam's Iraq. Of course if this comes to light, it could call into question many conspiracy threads posted here, such as all the 9/11 threads and many of the false flag thread.

6 days after Hussein was captured Muammar Gaddafi turned his WMDs over to the Brits and Americans. That's when we got Sadam's weapons. Bush was already "vindicated"; the public wasn't told because Washington feared that with the weapons found the American people would have demanded an immediate end to the operations in Iraq and to bring the boys back home. Alas, our military machine wasn't done building our bases and arming our missiles for the war we knew was coming...you know, the one unfolding right now...so they couldn't risk providing yet another excuse for us to withdrawal at that point.
Look it up, there's tons of articles about it. Just look up the day Hussein was captured on google news, then do a search filtering between dates the following week for Gaddafi. Surprised that escaped ATS members. I had thought everyone knew this...
Following his capture on 13 December 2003, the trial of Saddam took place under the Iraqi interim government.
On December 19, 2003, long-time Libyan President Moammar Gaddafi stunned much of the world by renouncing Tripoli’s weapons of mass destruction (WMD) programs and welcoming international inspectors to verify that Tripoli would follow through on its commitment.

Bush vindicated huh? Well who do you think designed and sold those chemical weapons to Saddam? Bush senior and Reagan admins, which unfortunately means, we did.
