BREAKING: NY Times Drops Bombshell Bush’s Iraq War… Liberals Are Scrambling
Remember how liberals always laughed at President Bush’s claim that weapons of mass destruction (WMDs) were in Iraq? Well, the New York Times has published an explosive report showing that, uh, yeah, WMDs were found in Iraq.
Splashed across the front page of Tuesday’s Times is an article that repeatedly makes clear that one of President Bush’s main, stated reasons for invading Iraq post-9/11 was legitimate. There were WMD’s — chemical weapons, lots of them — hidden in Iraq and discovered by our troops.
What the article also make clear is that the discovery and destruction of Saddam’s chemical weapons caches over many years was, for whatever reason, kept secret.
From 2004 to 2011, American and American-trained Iraqi troops repeatedly encountered, and on at least six occasions were wounded by, chemical weapons remaining from years earlier in Saddam Hussein’s rule.
In all, American troops secretly reported finding roughly 5,000 chemical warheads, shells or aviation bombs, according to interviews with dozens of participants, Iraqi and American officials, and heavily redacted intelligence documents obtained under the Freedom of Information Act.
In the ongoing attempt to “blame Bush” and cast the former president in a negative historical light, the Times piece attempts to condemn the Bush administration for, essentially, covering up the existence of those WMDs, thus leading to risk and injury for military personnel who found them and were involved in their destruction.
So the military found WMDs in Iraq, which was the reason Bush sent our troops to war there, and they dismantled or destroyed the weapons. And this is a negative because… the Pentagon didn’t tell us right away? Uh, OK. Nice try, libs.
