Those Pesky WMD's
From Captain's Quarters:
- For those who keep insisting that Saddam had no WMD and no way of producing them, The Hague has some embarrassing news. It convicted Saddam's supplier, Dutch businessman Frans van Anraat, to 15 years for selling Saddam the chemicals used to kill at least 5,000 Kurds in Halabja
From the UK Times online, it seems Mr. van Anraat had been hiding in Baghdad of all places for 14 years until the US led invasion caused him to flee to the Netherlands where he was arrested in 2003. He had sold Saddam 1,000 tons of chemicals to make mustard gas. Tons of chemicals that Saddam refused to account for in numerous UN Resolutions. And this is only from a single supplier. As more documents become declassified, the evidence of a massive WMD program will come to light and the silence from the American left and the main stream media becomes more deafening and damning by the day.
