Our fine institution of Journalism is dead.
Latest point is the Weapons of Mass Destruction, or WMDs, in Iraq. With the turmoil happening now with ISIS in Iraq, they have gotten their hands on the old WMDs left behind by Saddam Hussein.
Our MSM has reported to the masses for years now that ‘BUSH lied and there were NO WMDs in Iraq‘.
From June 29, 2006
“WASHINGTON, June 29, 2006 – The 500 munitions discovered throughout Iraq since 2003 and discussed in a National Ground Intelligence Center report meet the criteria of weapons of mass destruction, the center’s commander said here today.
“These are chemical weapons as defined under the Chemical Weapons Convention, and yes … they do constitute weapons of mass destruction,” Army Col. John Chu told the House Armed Services Committee.
The Chemical Weapons Convention is an arms control agreement which outlaws the production, stockpiling and use of chemical weapons. It was signed in 1993 and entered into force in 1997.
The munitions found contain sarin and mustard gases, Army Lt. Gen. Michael D. Maples, director of the Defense Intelligence Agency, said. Sarin attacks the neurological system and is potentially lethal.
“Mustard is a blister agent (that) actually produces burning of any area (where) an individual may come in contact with the agent,” he said. It also is potentially fatal if it gets into a person’s lungs.”
Next up, FOX News reports on this from June 22, 2006 — WMDs FOUND in Iraq
NBC and the AP working overtime to make the Liberal Point — NO WMDs Found! From April 2005.
And the ole HuffPo does a June 2012 write up to make the republicans sound like “LUNATICS”
Posted April 23, 2007 – Report from 2004. (as you read this CIA report, make sure you view the various “FIGURES” they mention throughout the report)
“Stockpiles of chemical munitions are still stored there. The most dangerous ones have been declared to the UN and are sealed in bunkers. Although declared, the bunkers contents have yet to be confirmed. These areas of the compound pose a hazard to civilians and potential black marketers.”
