These Aren't The 5,000 Chemical Warheads, Shells or Aviation Bombs We're Looking For

You can got about your business.

It's a stunning revelation: American soldiers in Iraq came across thousands of chemical weapons -- and a number of them suffered long-term injuries after being exposed to mustard and sarin gas.

And today, ISIS controls the territory where these chemical weapons were found.

These facts are laid bare by New York Times reporter C.J. Chivers in a long article, “The Secret Casualties of Iraq’s Abandoned Chemical Weapons.” How ironic that the left-leaning Times is presenting facts that are at odds with a favorite narrative of the anti-war left -- namely, that the mendacious Bush administration had lied about the existence of WMDs in Iraq.

Chivers, of course, can't very well say that Bush was right all along:

Move along, move along.

2 Barry is not up for re-election. The Times is many years late.

3 fine, fine, i shall now repeat the Left's counter argument
which i heard scores of times during he nineties:
"but WE GAVE HIM those weapons."

(Doesn't matter that the weapons were manufactured in Iraq, WE GAVE HIM those factories. Because dirty foreigners cannot build anything until WE SHOW THEM HOW. Because Leftists are inherently racist and believe that iraqis can only make chemical weapons when led by white officers.)

4 Of course we knew Iraq had those weapons. WE HELPED THEM BUILD THE GOD DAMNED THINGS!

Only a mindless leftist could come to the conclusion that absence of proof is not proof of absence.

5 Ugh. I need to edit better.

Absence of proof *IS* proof of absence to a liberal leftist.

6 Right on cue, Foreign Policy brought their anti-American hit piece from last year to the front page today. "U.S. HELPED SADDAM AS HE GASSED IRAN!"

7 Actually Gork is right. Also see Ames strain.

But still, its true he was supposed to get rid of the WMD we knew he had because, Iran.

If the 9/11 letter were indeed that they say they were that strain indicates Saddam's collusion with AQ. Does it not?

But of course we can't talk about that.

Which is why so many conspiracy theories live so well. We lie about what we did, we lie about why we do what we do do.

Pretty soon its not just something boomeranged on us its a conspiracy.

Not withstanding the fact that the incompetent government couldn't conspire inflate a basketball without contracting it out.

And also everything they touch turns to shit.

8 That whole article is a lie. it has to be.
The useless print, tv, internet twits and govt. "officials" proclaimed loud and long for years, that Saddam did Not have these things.
How can they magically appear there now?

9 Amazing how the body counts presented almost gleefully on the leftard nightly news instantly stopped the second Obama was elected.

Seriously there will be consequences for the lies (direct and by omission) these non-journalists made to further their leftist political agendas. You see there are NO Constitutional protections for non-journalist propagandists.

Mouth-pieces for traitors can, under conspiracy provisions, suffer the same penalties .
