"Curveball" The Truth Behind WMDs and The Excuse for War


www.alternet.org

Curveball, who claimed to be an Iraqi chemical engineer with knowledge of even the country's most secret weapons programs, spilled the beans in a big way when debriefed by German intelligence officials. But, as Drogin would later report, he was a twitchy, possibly mentally disturbed drunk who was prone to rapid mood-swings and whose story tended to shift according to what he thought investigators wanted to hear.

So the story about the WMDs that Saddam allegedly had was not the "foolproof" intelligence we had been led to believe.

Well there's a surprise.

The sooner we are out of Iraq, the better - there only remains the problem of clearing up the mess we have made.

Ahmad Chalibi and the Iraqi National Congress supplied a lot of those types to this administration's "intelligence" which woofed them down without so much of a blink. They included an Iraqi General who wasn't and a whole variety of other fakes.

The thing is for the most part the CIA wasn't fooled but they were discounted and sidelined.

All this from an administration that wants us to believe it has the poop on Iran now.

The only "Breaking News" about this article is that it is an interview of the author for a new book being released. The news about curveball has been known for some time.

Here is a good article from 2005 which explains this and other intelligence failures that led to the Iraq war.

How this doesn't justify impeachment is beyond me.

Do you people even factor into the equation that from 1983-88 it was documented by the UN security council and the entire world media that Iraq gassed both Iran and the Kurds with Mustard Gas (a blistering agent) and Tabun (can kill in minutes). They killed over 100,000 people with these WMD, yet people say that our Government attacked Iraq which had no WMD's.

Their are many many more articles on Iraq gassing Iran and the Kurds if people want to research it and find out the truth for themselves!

If you think Iraq had no WMD's then you are only kidding yourself. Maybe they just used them all on the Kurds, and the US is therefore still at fault because, technically, they didn't have any more.

The reality is that they had ample time to destroy, hide, sell, or move them to another country before we even attacked them. We gave them plenty of notice that we were going to attack them!

It's funny how people don't consider this known fact when they say that Iraq had no WMD's.

OH, don't let the facts get in the way of the lies perpetrated agianst the US Government! I know that the Government is involved in many conspiracies, but this is not one of them.

Iraq had WMD's and were not afraid to use them on a large population of people!
However, I do not agree with our troops being over there for four years. I think our mission was accomplished when we found Saddam, and we should have began troop pullouts at that time!
