DISASTER: Isis Seizes Saddam Hussein’s Chemical Weapons Stockpile
You often hear liberals say no WMDs were even found in Iraq, but that’s simply not true. We found a lot of WMD’s, they just weren’t the ones we were looking for. We believed Saddam had an active weapons program, but apparently he shut the program down while keeping the assets he needed in place to restart it up. He was also stockpiling some pre-Gulf War WMDs. Happily, those old WMD’s are past their shelf life and aren’t likely to be as effective as they would have been a decade ago, but they’re still dangerous and now ISIS has them.
16.32: Isis jihadists have seized a chemical weapons facility built by Saddam Hussein which contains a stockpile of old weapons, State Department officials have: told the Wall Street Journal:
U.S. officials don’t believe the Sunni militants will be able to create a functional chemical weapon from the material. The weapons stockpiled at the Al Muthanna complex are old, contaminated and hard to move, officials said.
Nonetheless, the capture of the chemical-weapon stockpile by the forces of the Islamic State of Iraq and al-Sham, known as ISIS or ISIL, the militant group that is seizing territory in the country, has grabbed the attention of the U.S.
“We remain concerned about the seizure of any military site by the ISIL,” Jen Psaki, the State Department spokeswoman, said in a written statement. “We do not believe that the complex contains CW materials of military value and it would be very difficult, if not impossible, to safely move the materials.”
Oh good! The same government that bungled Obamacare, used the IRS to go after the Tea Party and that said Iraq would be fine even if we pulled out says that the anti-American terrorists who now have their hands on weapons of mass destruction probably can’t create a “functional chemical weapon” out of it. Given that the administration would probably say that, whether it is true or not — it can’t really allay anyone’s concerns, can it?
It took a lot of guts to do what this young man did. They also offered him 20k in hush money. Fabulous. The proof in my opinion here is that...Read More
