By now much of the nation has finally heard the truth; George Bush never lied about weapons of mass destruction. By now most of America is realizing that the President who has been pummeled mercilessly on the fact that such weapons were missing, is deserving of public apologies from every Ted, Dick, and Harry the Senate can cough up.
If you have been living under a rock here's the short measure of it. On Wednesday of this last week, Senator Rick Santorum and Congressman Peter Hoekstra revealed to the press for the first time the declassified portion of documents demonstrating that U.S. military had uncovered a minimum of 500 weaponized munitions that could in fact be used to deliver mustard and saran gas.
Senator Santorum confirmed on my radio broadcast (hear the audio here) that these weapons were the kind used to kill 5000 Kurds by Saddam. Saddam only needed 3 of these missiles to accomplish that feat - we've uncovered 500. That's enough nerve agents to kill more than 8.3 million people - or the Island of Manhattan, or the city of Chicago.
The lying leftists who will get all of us killed if we don't remain vigilant were very slow to respond.
The New York Times who has run hundreds of stories in the last two years on the global war on terror and attempted to reiterate on their news and editorial pages that the President lied to the American people - remained completely silent on the issue the day following the discovery. The Boston Globe committed all of two paragraphs. The Washington Post five. Yet combined these newspapers used thousands of paragraphs with huge, large font headlines to say again and again that the President had lied.
When I asked Senator Santorum the real meaning of it all as it related to the American position prior to the liberation of Iraq he responded quite simply, "it meant that Secretary of State Powell told the truth when he went before the United Nations Security Council."
As I have reported previously we've had first hand knowledge that some of the weapons were removed from Iraq via outfitted 747 Jumbo and 727 jets to Damascus. General Georges Sada testified to as much on my show (hear the audio here.) But at that, there was always a suspicion that not all of the weapons had been able to be moved. I believe that the President firmly believed that they would in fact be uncovered by the respective United Nations inspection teams. But let's face it - the last U.N. Inspections team that actually found what it was looking for was immediately kicked out.
