Former Joint Chiefs chairman Gen. Hugh Shelton says that, during the Bush administration, Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld, his deputy, Paul Wolfowitz, and other Pentagon officials pushed to go to war with Iraq "almost to the point of insubordination."

"There was a very strong push in those days for us to go into Iraq, and there was absolutely no intelligence, zero, that pointed toward the Iraqis.," he told Christiane Amanpour on ABC's 'This Week' on Sunday. "It was all Al Qaida, Osama bin Laden. And yet there was an element there that was -- that was pushing to go into Iraq at the same time."

George Bush was focused on Afghanistan and initially resisted the pressure to invade Iraq, Shelton says. But he was eventually convinced.

"Afghanistan, remember, was going very, very well," Shelton said. "The drumbeat back here in Washington was still pushing, coming out of the Pentagon, let's go to Iraq, let's get -- take him out. And he finally said, let's go." </div></div>

Yes, and also backs up the very same statements and documentation presented by countless investigative journalists, authors of many books, telling the same story, and former CIA and Military, who resigned over the impeachment worthy, insubordination of the Bush Administration, honorable people, who were then trashed and slandered by the Bush Administration.

Joe Wilson, and is wife, Valarie, both victims of the Bush/Cheney/Rove/Libby Politics of personal destruction, mirroring the history of Cheney/Rumsfeld/Nixon, that shameful period in American History, when plans were being made to murder Jack Anderson, right in the oval office...

Disgraceful! They were all back in there doing the same illegal disgraceful lying and destruction under Reagan and Bush/Bush, decades later.

Déjà vu: Right-wing media absurdly claim "Bush was right" about Iraq's WMDs
1 hour and 12 minutes ago — 22 Comments
Right-wing media figures have seized on a Wired article about the classified Iraq war documents recently released by WikiLeaks.com to desperately claim "Bush was right" that Saddam Hussein had a stockpile of weapons of mass destruction (WMDs). In fact, the Wired article reported the documents did not "reveal evidence of some massive WMD program by the Saddam Hussein regime," but rather remnants of the stockpiles largely destroyed during the Gulf War.



Wired: WikiLeaks docs showed no evidence of a "massive WMD program"
Wired magazine: WikiLeaks document release "doesn't reveal evidence of some massive WMD program by the Saddam Hussein regime," just "[r]emnants" from the Gulf War. Wired magazine's Danger Room published an article on October 23 analyzing what the WikiLeaks documents revealed about the WMDs search in Iraq. The article concluded that "chemical weapons...did not vanish from the Iraqi battlefield" as they should have after UN sanctions ordered stockpiles destroyed, but that the documents did not "reveal evidence of some massive WMD program by the Saddam Hussein regime." From the article:

An initial glance at the WikiLeaks war logs doesn't reveal evidence of some massive WMD program by the Saddam Hussein regime -- the Bush administration's most (in)famous rationale for invading Iraq. But chemical weapons, especially, did not vanish from the Iraqi battlefield. Remnants of Saddam's toxic arsenal, largely destroyed after the Gulf War, remained. Jihadists, insurgents and foreign (possibly Iranian) agitators turned to these stockpiles during the Iraq conflict -- and may have brewed up their own deadly agents.

[...]

In WikiLeaks' massive trove of nearly 392,000 Iraq war logs, there are hundreds of references to chemical and biological weapons. Most of those are intelligence reports or initial suspicions of WMD that don't pan out. In July 2004, for example, U.S. forces come across a Baghdad building with gas masks, gas filters, and containers with "unknown contents" inside. Later investigation revealed those contents to be vitamins.

But even late in the war, WMDs were still being unearthed. In the summer of 2008, according to one WikiLeaked report, American troops found at least 10 rounds that tested positive for chemical agents. "These rounds were most likely left over from the [Saddam]-era regime. Based on location, these rounds may be an AQI [Al Qaeda in Iraq] cache. However, the rounds were all total disrepair and did not appear to have been moved for a long time."

A small group -- mostly of the political right -- has long maintained that there was more evidence of a major and modern WMD program than the American people were lead [sic] to believe. A few Congressmen and Senators gravitated to the idea, but it was largely dismissed as conspiratorial hooey.

The WMD diehards will likely find some comfort in these newly-WikiLeaked documents. Skeptics will note that these relatively small WMD stockpiles were hardly the kind of grave danger that the Bush administration presented in the run-up to the war.

The Niger Embassy, which is where the break in ocured, and where only their letterhead stationary and their Seal, was mising, was the sourvve the Bush Administration used to try to lay their plan for invading Iraq.

Michael Ledeen, was known to have links with the group of Italian thugs, who were in the business of acquiring fake intel for numerous and varried countries. Ledeen was also linked with The American Enterprise Institute, the RW think tank, chock full of oil CEO's money, and along with the cheney's, wolfowitz, Card, the entire Bush administration....and where The Project For The New American century originated.....in the nineties, calling for pre-emptive war and ocupation of Iraq.

The Niger Embassy, was broken into three months before the election, and before Bush was appointed Presid, ent, by the RW activist Supreme Court. The Niger Embassy was the source of the fake intelligence, that Saddam was trying to get Yelow Cake.

Strange, how even after it has been proven over and over that there were NO WMD's FOUND IN IRAQ, the right is STILL trying to claim that they wre there.


The Shelf-life for biological weapons, is onl three months. /forums/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/laugh.gif
