History BOT, WMD fixings, found in Iraq


Recommended Posts

Notes before I post what I can find that constituents the story I read.


Prior to the invasion of Iraq, American intelligence agencies, did track truck vehicles, shuttling from one place, to another, always head of the U.N. inspection teams.


It was guessed that mobile laboratories were on these large trucks, but the inspectors never caught the trucks.


Inside TIME Magazine, it was also shown, a battlefield grade of missile, similar to a light grade, but nuclear capable carrying missile, which was found in a bricked mud hut, long ago.


From Iran's bombed by Israel nuclear facility, there was five hundred tons of uranium, already in Iraq.


The Iraqis could have already moved a good portion of this material, to Iran, which they suddenly made allies with.


During some parts of the war and this is recorded, they dumped Russian made jets, to Iranian air fields, to keep them from falling into coalition hands.


So what was to keep them from dumping what if any primitive fixings for any nuclear weapons, into Iraq.


I said fixings, not competent weapons systems.


The reason why the Iraqis kept shuttling these trucks around, is to draw coalition forces, into a war, which would make Iraq, appear to be a martyr.

BAGHDAD, Iraq - A roadside bomb thought to contain deadly sarin nerve agent exploded near a U.S. military convoy, the U.S. military said Monday. It was believed to be the first confirmed discovery of any of the banned weapons that the United States cited in making its case for the Iraq war.


Two members of a military bomb squad were treated for 'minor exposure,' but no serious injuries were reported.


The chemicals were inside an artillery shell dating to the Saddam Hussein era that had been rigged as a bomb in Baghdad, said Brig. Gen. Mark Kimmitt, the chief military spokesman in Iraq.




Sarin, Mustard Gas Discovered Separately in Iraq

BAGHDAD, Iraq — A roadside bomb containing sarin nerve agent (search) recently exploded near a U.S. military convoy, the U.S. military said Monday.


Bush administration officials told Fox News that mustard gas (search) was also recently discovered.


Two people were treated for "minor exposure" after the sarin incident but no serious injuries were reported. Soldiers transporting the shell for inspection suffered symptoms consistent with low-level chemical exposure, which is what led to the discovery, a U.S. official told Fox News.


"The Iraqi Survey Group confirmed today that a 155-millimeter artillery round containing sarin nerve agent had been found," Brig. Gen. Mark Kimmitt (search), the chief military spokesman in Iraq, told reporters in Baghdad. "The round had been rigged as an IED (improvised explosive device) which was discovered by a U.S. force convoy."


The round detonated before it would be rendered inoperable, Kimmitt said, which caused a "very small dispersal of agent."


However, Defense Secretary Donald H. Rumsfeld said the results were from a field test, which can be imperfect, and said more analysis was needed. If confirmed, it would be the first finding of a banned weapon upon which the United States based its case for war.




Tests Confirm Sarin in Iraqi Artillery Shell

FREE FOX News Video:•Sarin Find Raises Questions


NEW YORK — Tests on an artillery shell that blew up in Iraq on Saturday confirm that it did contain an estimated three or four liters of the deadly nerve agent sarin (search), Defense Department officials told Fox News Tuesday.


The artillery shell was being used as an improvised roadside bomb, the U.S. military said Monday. The 155-mm shell exploded before it could be rendered inoperable, and two U.S. soldiers were treated for minor exposure to the nerve agent.


Three liters is about three-quarters of a gallon; four liters is a little more than a gallon.


"A little drop on your skin will kill you" in the binary form, said Ret. Air Force Col. Randall Larsen, founder of Homeland Security Associates. "So for those in immediate proximity, three liters is a lot," but he added that from a military standpoint, a barrage of shells with that much sarin in them would more likely be used as a weapon than one single shell.


The soldiers displayed "classic" symptoms of sarin exposure, most notably dilated pupils and nausea, officials said. The symptoms ran their course fairly quickly, however, and as of Tuesday the two had returned to duty.


The munition found was a binary chemical shell, meaning it featured two chambers, each containing separate chemical compounds. Upon impact with the ground after the shell is fired, the barrier between the chambers is broken, the chemicals mix and sarin is created and dispersed

WMD: Believe Iraq or


Believe the Evidence?


Compiled By Ryan Mauro


[email protected]


It has been only 7 months since the war in Iraq even began, but charges that the United States lied about Iraqi possession of weapons of mass destruction are seen in the press daily. This report will examine evidence of WMD independently gathered from the press, and where they presently are. Before going further, I wish to make the following points:


1) The intelligence communities of every major country were confident that Iraq had weapons of mass destruction before 2003. These include the United States, Canada, France, the United Nations, the United Kingdom, Germany, Spain, Australia, Japan, even Iran and a slew of others. It was a working assumption that such WMD was in Iraq, so much that I never heard accusations that it wasn't true until the political war heated up in March, 2003.


2) Colin Powell's presentation at the UN in February 2003 proved that Iraq was deceiving UN inspectors. What is there to hide?


3) In 1995, a high-ranking Iraqi defector proved Iraq was building WMD despite the UN restrictions. After this was revealed, Iraq admitted it had violated UN restrictions. Why should we believe Iraq was in compliance with the UN today, when Saddam hasn't in the past?


4) As shown in the Kay interim report, there were thousands of items that Saddam had that could be used in WMD programs. These are usually dual-use items—items that have an apparently 'civilian' use and are bought as such, but then when coupled with other items, can make WMD goods. If Saddam violated sanctions, as we know for a fact, why should we believe he had respect for other UN demands? And why would he violate such sanctions to gain such items?


5) As shown in the Kay interim report, why was such an enormous amount of material not declared as required by the UN?


6) Much of the suspected WMDs can fit in a package the size of a palm of a hand. Together, almost all of the WMDs could fit in a two-car parking garage. Why do people expect us to find such items already? Saddam has had 12 years to make programs to deceive Western intelligence, and 4 years to do so without ANY Western interference. And only recently, Coalition forces found fighter jets under the desert sand. If we just recently found huge fighter jets, how can people complain we haven't found WMD yet?


7) After Iraq admitted producing a certain amount of WMD, disarmament by the UN began. How come a large portion was not disarmed by the UN and Iraq first admitted that it was not disarmed, only to later say they destroyed them 'unilaterally'? Why didn't the Saddam regime just destroy them with UN supervision like the rest of them?


8) There has been lots of evidence that Iraq infiltrated UN inspection and intelligence teams. Why are people surprised the UN didn't find any WMD?


9) The UN recognized that Iraq was engaged in illicit activity and was not disarming by passing 18 resolutions demanding that Iraq did so. Are we going to believe Saddam Hussein over the world community?


10) With extensive business interests in Iraq, why are people surprised that countries like Russia, France and Germany opposed war with Saddam Hussein's regime?


11) Bill Clinton is the one who originally put the focus on Saddam Hussein's WMD possession and links to terrorists. How come when he bombed Iraq in 1998 for four days, there wasn't such a political outcry that he may be wrong about WMD?


12) It is obvious that weapons would be hidden in the Sunni triangle, the most loyal area to the regime. Today, this area is still not pacified to the extent that would allow a full-fledged search in civilian homes and such. Without the most suspect area fully pacified, why are people jumping to the conclusion that WMDs are a lie?


I would like readers to first read the Kay Interim Report, which should convince any open-minded person that at the very least, Iraq had a research and development effort for WMDs, and was waiting to produce them once inspectors left and/or sanctions were lifted. Scientists were hired that could be quickly transferred to weapons work at a moment's notice. However, at least one scientist claimed he worked in a chemical/biological program right up to the moments before war. At which point, they could be produced en masse. The media has inadequately reported on the Kay Report, which has a massive amount of evidence against the regime. Among the information is that documents prove that Iraq signed a $10 million contract with North Korea to receive the technology and equipment to made intermediate-range ballistic missiles (the supplies never came). And on the subject of missiles, Kay proved that Iraq was preparing fuel in 2002 that can only be used in SCUD missiles. The Kay Interim Report can be viewed here:

Title: U.S. considering moving 500 tons of uranium from Iraq

U.S. considering moving 500 tons of uranium from Iraq




May 22, 2004


VIENNA – The United States has informed an international agency that oversees nuclear materials that it intends to move hundreds of tons of uranium from a sealed repository south of Baghdad to a more secure location outside Iraq, Western diplomats close to the agency say.


However, the International Atomic Energy Agency has taken the position that the uranium is Iraqi property and the agency "cannot give them permission to remove it," a diplomat said.


The diplomat said the United States was highly unlikely to be deterred by that position and that U.S. officials had contacted the agency on the matter this year, before the Iraq insurgency flared last month.


"I think that if the stuff had not gone up in intensity," the diplomat said, "they would already have moved on this."


An official with the U.S.-led Coalition Provisional Authority in Baghdad confirmed that moving the uranium was under consideration.


"The story I've heard is that no decision has been made as yet," the official said. "That was some months ago. When it was discussed, the view was that it was just too expensive to ship. I doubt that anything has changed."


The official said keeping the material in storage, even amid the instability in Iraq, could be safer than trying to move it. Nuclear experts outside the government said that if the material were moved, it would probably be airlifted and placed in a repository in the United States.
