One of the biggest lies perpetrated in the last two decades, besides the global warming hoax, has been that there were no weapons of mass destruction in Iraq.
Of course we know that at the time the military found some remnants of WMDs in the rivers. We also know there were huge convoys that left for Syria from Iraq in the weeks before the war. The entire world knew that Saddam Hussein had WMDs.
That should have been enough to prove GW Bush did not lie. But liberals do not like facts and they will not like this one.
I will let the liberal NY Times tell the story.
It was August 2008 near Taji, Iraq. They had just exploded a stack of old Iraqi artillery shells buried beside a murky lake. The blast, part of an effort to destroy munitions that could be used in makeshift bombs, uncovered more shells.
Two technicians assigned to dispose of munitions stepped into the hole. Lake water seeped in. One of them, Specialist Andrew T. Goldman, noticed a pungent odor, something, he said, he had never smelled before.
He lifted a shell. Oily paste oozed from a crack. “That doesn’t look like pond water,” said his team leader, Staff Sgt. Eric J. Duling.
The specialist swabbed the shell with chemical detection paper. It turned red — indicating sulfur mustard, the chemical warfare agent designed to burn a victim’s airway, skin and eyes.<
All three men recall an awkward pause. Then Sergeant Duling gave an order: “Get the hell out.”
Yeah.. “Get the hell out.” because those WMDs that GW Bush “lied” about were right there in front of them!
The NYT goes on to explain that during the years of 2004 to 2011, on at least six occasions, troops were wounded by, chemical weapons that were remaining from Saddam Hussein’s rule.
In fact, American troops found nearly 5,000 abandoned chemical weapons in Iraq during that time, but their discoveries were kept secret by the U.S. government, the New York Times reports.
So I now know that we will have liberals all over the country apologizing for accusing GW Bush of lying. I just know they will!
Of course they won’t. They will, even after continuing to know the facts, continue to say he lied. That is just the way they are.
“I love it when I hear, ‘Oh there weren’t any chemical weapons in Iraq,’” Jarrod L. Taylor, a former Army sergeant, told the NYT. “There were plenty.”
