Slowly, very slowly, we are beginning to discover what happened to the WMDs of Saddam. The left and the antique media have made it an article of faith that there never were any WMDs, and that “Bush lied.” So deep is their investment in a political position premised on this conclusion that they will pay no attention to contrary evidence.
Via Peter Glover’s website Wires from the bunker, we learn of an interview between Ali Ibrahim al-Tikriti, a southern regional commander for Saddam Hussein’s Fedayeen militia in the late 1980s and a personal friend of the dictator and Ryan Mauro of Worldthreats.com.
Only two weeks ago, General Sada, formerly Sadaam’s no 2 Air Force Commander, told the New York Sun that Sadaam’s WMD was moved to Syria just six weeks before the US-led invasion. Now Ali Ibrahim confirms this and explains the underlying strategy of Saddam.
Jeff Goldstein also has a nice (and sometimes acerbic) roundup of the whole issue including some of the more patently absurd pre-reactions of the left. Think of the "pre-reactions" as their way of being paranoidly proactive about news that exposes them for the complete idiots they are.
Tonight Nightline! Tomorrow the NY Times? I wouldn't count on it, but we'll see.
