The recent WikiLeaks Iraqi war documents have all the fifth columnists in America salivating as they await the breakout of their much-hoped-for "war crimes" prosecutions.
At the same time, some of the documents demonstrate that the myth of no WMD discoveries in Iraq continues to be busted. "Wired" reports:
But WikiLeaks' newly-released Iraq war documents reveal that for years afterward, U.S. troops continued to find chemical weapons labs, encounter insurgent specialists in toxins and uncover weapons of mass destruction.
An initial glance at the WikiLeaks war logs doesn't reveal evidence of some massive WMD program by the Saddam Hussein regime ? the Bush administration's most (in)famous rationale for invading Iraq. But chemical weapons, especially, did not vanish from the Iraqi battlefield. Remnants of Saddam's toxic arsenal, largely destroyed after the Gulf War, remained. Jihadists, insurgents and foreign (possibly Iranian) agitators turned to these stockpiles during the Iraq conflict ? and may have brewed up their own deadly agents.
These documents do not demonstrate the accuracy of huge stockpiles of WMD remaining in Iraq, but what the left conveniently leaves out of the history of the preparation to the conflict is that no one denies that Saddam Hussein was in violation of the vaunted U.N. sanctions against him; to wit, he refused to allow inspections and verifications of his compliance to continue. If he was in compliance and really had no WMD or facilities, why did he refuse to simply comply when faced with the prospect of armed combat?
At any rate, while American fifth columnists continue to rant endlessly about the "deceptions" that led to American involvement in Iraq, reports such as these demonstrate that the reality of the presence of some WMD, even though not given much attention by Big Media, continue to surface.
