This is a great article at Frontpage Magazine, written by John Loftus.

The inescapable conclusion is this: Saddam really did have WMD after all, but not in the way the Bush administration believed. A 9,000 word research paper with citations to each captured document has been posted online at LoftusReport.com, along with translations of the captured Iraqi documents, courtesy of Mr. Ryan Mauro and his friends.

Unfortunately, when you go to Loftus’ website, there is music playing in another language, and you have to pay for the report, but this is what he says about the documentation of what happened to Saddam’s WMD, in part:

This Iraqi document research has been supplemented with satellite photographs and dozens of interviews, among them David Gaubatz who risked radiation exposure to locate Saddam’s underwater WMD warehouses , and John Shaw, whose brilliant detective work solved the puzzle of where the WMD went. Both have contributed substantially to solving one of the most difficult mysteries of our decade.

The absolutists on either side of the WMD debate will be more than a bit chagrinned at these disclosures. The documents show a much more complex history than previously suspected. The “Bush lied, people died” chorus has insisted that Saddam had no WMD whatsoever after 1991 – and thus that WMD was no good reason for the war. The Neocon diehards insist that, as in Raiders of the Lost Ark, the treasure-trove is still out there somewhere, buried under the sand dunes of Iraq. Each side is more than a little bit wrong about Saddam’s WMD, and each side is only a little bit right about what happened to it.

I’m very tempted to get it, even though I’ll have to pony up with some bucks.

He gives some coordinates that you can use google earth to find, I think I’m going to do that, as well and maybe later on post some pictures of it.

He concludes with:

It is time to utterly reject the conventional wisdom that there were no WMD in Iraq and look to the best evidence: Saddam’s own files on WMD. The truth is what it is, the documents speak for themselves.

Abbas is irrelevant to his own people, says Brigitte Gabriel, founder of American Congress for Truth. “Peace” efforts in the region have only resulted in more violence.

Isn’t that true of every “Peace” movement?

“They have done a mighty fine job without America’s involvement. It wasn’t until America started getting involved in Israel and twisting Israel’s arm into giving territories and concessions. I mean look, more Israelis have been killed after the Oslo accord of 1993 than the whole history prior since Israel got its independence. We cannot trust Mahmoud Abbas. [He] is nothing more than Yasser Arafat in a business suit.”

Israel needs to be allowed to protect itself without outside interference telling it to give more concessions to the already emboldened terrorists who fairly recently were allowed to invade and take over Gaza. We’ve already seen how responsibly that was handled; they VOTED IN HAMAS.

There will be no peace in the Middle East until terrorist stop their desire to push the Jews into the sea. And I doubt that will ever happen, being that diplomats want to play patty-cake with them. Playing into the hands of the fascist terrorists and inviting terrorists to the bargaining table as if they’re legitimate forces to be reckoned with is a serious mistake. A representative of the Sudan was there, a state that president Bush accused of genocide.

They are terrorists and should be treated as such…relegated to the trash bin of history and crushed with the same ruthlessness they use toward the ‘infidel’ and their misbehaving wives and children. If strength and dominance is what they understand, they should be met with it.

Otherwise…we’ll be living under sharia law.
