But there WERE WMDs. Even Reuters and AP published articles citing the undeniable facts. While the mainstream media published the truth, they didn't
go on and on about it; otherwise, they might "clear" the name of President George W. Bush.
Yet, even if one could now dismiss that perceived stain upon G.W., he has so many others that he will never come squeaky clean. But I won't go into
the economic issues and such.
Wish I had one of those articles to link to, from MSM acknowledging there were WMDs in Iraq and that G. W. Bush Administration kept the two caches
secret because our military needed to defend it from all the terrorists that wanted to acquire those weapons. All we needed was fanatic individuals
grabbing what they could get and dispersing with chemical weapons.
I will see if I can find a link to one of these very insightful articles.
But I also found it impressive that President George W. Bush was okay letting people attack his character when he could have cleared that aspect up at
any time by showing the true WMD cache finds. But, he was at least one of the few recent presidents who respected national security more than his own
It took WikiLeaks for the public to find out there really were WMDs in Iraq.
But we need to be talking about how THERE WERE WMDs in IRAQ in caches that our military and the Bush Administration kept secret so they could prevent
terrorists from attacking those highly desired weapons and buy time to find ways to move the WMDs into a truly secure location.
Sure, the chemical weapons (WMDs by definition) that were found wouldn't have ended the world, but they met the definition and could have easily been
used to kill masses. The news reports show that they were active. But not a giant horror movie that even the mainstream media quickly jumped on the
bandwagon to play with fear in their audience. Thus, our emotional perception would never match anything short of state of the art WMDs with super
powers. Let's just all face the truth that they existed and were deadly but never a global extinction level type of event the media was complicit in
hyping (for control over the sheeple).
Note, there were some excellent articles when it broke. For now, this is what I can find to share:
NY Post - Iraq did have chemical WMD, WikiLeaks documents
HotAir - WikiLeaks documents show WMDs found in Iraq
PBS Frontline - Saddam Hussein's Weapons of Mass
