    Here are two related stories:

    Saddam general: WMDs in Syria :Another former confidant of ex-dictator makes claim, also links Iraq to al-Qaida

    "2006 WorldNetDaily.com
    A former general and friend of Saddam Hussein who defected but maintains close contact with Iraq claims the regime supported al-Qaida with intelligence, finances and munitions and believes weapons of mass destruction are hidden in Syria.

    Ali Ibrahim al-Tikriti, southern regional commander for Saddam Hussein's Fedayeen militia in the late 1980s, spoke with Ryan Mauro of WorldThreats.com.

    Known as the "Butcher of Basra," al-Tikriti commanded units that dealt with chemical and biological weapons. He defected shortly before the Gulf War in 1991. "

    Ex-Officer Spurned on WMD Claim

    By ELI LAKE - Staff Reporter of the Sun
    February 8, 2006

    "A former special investigator for the Pentagon during the Iraq war said he found four sealed underground bunkers in southern Iraq that he is sure contain stocks of chemical and biological weapons. But when he asked American weapons inspectors to check out the sites, he was rebuffed."


    The weight of evidence is piling up that Bush was correct. I don't think it will be very long before his critics on this issue of WMDs in Iraq will be regretting their words.

    Here, too, is an interesting opinion written by Hal Lindsey (whom, I understand, is a lightning rod for some on the BB):

    The 'useful idiots' legacy

    Posted: February 16, 2006

    In this editorial, Lindsey describes how Saddam planned to split public opinion in the West, hide his WMD's, set the stage for insurgency, and "damage America's international reputation for decades to come. It would make it virtually impossible for American leaders to respond to future terrorist threats in an aggressive enough manner to prevent them."

    Excerpts:

    "...one of Saddam's former confidants – Ali Ibrahim al-Tikriti, aka "The Butcher of Basra" – said:

    'Saddam planned the whole thing. He hid the weapons of mass destruction, hoping the "many who opposed the war to begin with are rallying around Saddam saying we overthrew a sovereign leader based on a lie about WMD.' This is exactly what Saddam wanted and predicted.

    The marchers and demonstrators did precisely what Saddam wanted so precisely that, three years later, American forces are still battling insurgents encouraged by millions of demonstrators – and American news reports – about the rightness of their cause in fighting "the evil George Bush."

    It is now evident to all but the blindest partisans that the intelligence was correct and that Saddam not only had weapons of mass destruction, but that he worked directly with al-Qaida."

    Snipped from the same source article as above.

    This is interesting also considering the fact that the technology to fly jetliners by remote control didn't exist prior to 9/11/01 as President Bush and other "experts" have assured us.

    Ex-Official: Russia Moved Saddam's WMD
    Kenneth R. Timmerman
    Sunday, Feb. 19, 2006
    'A top Pentagon official who was responsible for tracking Saddam Hussein's weapons programs before and after the 2003 liberation of Iraq, has provided the first-ever account of how Saddam Hussein "cleaned up" his weapons of mass destruction stockpiles to prevent the United States from discovering them.

    "The short answer to the question of where the WMD Saddam bought from the Russians went was that they went to Syria and Lebanon," former Deputy Undersecretary of Defense John A. Shaw told an audience Saturday at a privately sponsored "Intelligence Summit" in Alexandria, Va. (www.intelligencesummit.org).

    "They were moved by Russian Spetsnaz (special forces) units out of uniform, that were specifically sent to Iraq to move the weaponry and eradicate any evidence of its existence," he said.'

    Russia tied to missing weapons in Iraq: weaponry relocated before war…
