Saddam’s WMD Found?


Holger Awakens has an interesting post up regarding a news story from Jerusalem Post indicating that the Israeli strike into Syria last September was against a cache of WMD’s from Iraq. Information is thin at the moment, but this does glue many things back together, and explains quite a few mysteries. It’s too soon to call it certain, which is why you see the question mark above.

WMD’s would explain the lack of reaction from Syria, and the tight wraps on information about the strike since it occurred. From Holger:

Bombshell. There’s a joint report coming out from the U.S. and Israel regarding the Israeli strike in Syria last year by the IAF. That report, it has been leaked, contains proof that Saddam Hussein had transferred his WMD’s to Syria at some point

From World Net Daily Feb 15, 2006: Saddam Hussein’s No. 2 Air Force officer, Georges Sada, told the New York Sun Iraq’s weapons of mass destruction were moved to Syria six weeks before the war started. Sada claimed two Iraqi Airways Boeing jets converted to cargo planes moved the weapons in a total of 56 flights. They attracted little attention, he said, because they were thought to be civilian flights providing relief from Iraq to Syria, which had suffered a flood after a dam collapse in 2002.
