Saddam moved over 56 planes full of WMDs to Syria two weeks prior to the start of the war claims Ali Ibrahim al-Tikriti, a southern commander of Hussein during the 1980’s. It doesn’t surprise me at all that this was done and we can’t really do anything about it. Invading Syria would be the last option we have - something we can’t do with the already over-extended troop situation. Bush got bamboozled and now it really makes him look worse in the eyes of his opposition.
Taken from an article on WND:
"After Saddam denied he had such weapons, why would he use them or leave them readily available to be found?" he said. "That would only legitimize President Bush, who he has a personal grudge against."
What we are witnessing now, he said, "is many who opposed the war to begin with are rallying around Saddam saying we overthrew a sovereign leader based on a lie about WMD. This is exactly what Saddam wanted and predicted."
al-Tikriti also notes that there was a direct correlation between Hussein and al-Qaeda. It was known that Hussein supported terrorism whenever possible, even though quite hard to prove. These comments aren’t the first to arise on this, making this possibility more believable.
I am confident that this has happened and Bush is only being ostracized for his ‘no tolerance for terrorism’ policy. Hopefully Syria gets nervous and makes a mistake by either exposing the hidden weapons or coming clean. Either way, Hussein is out of power making the world a safer place.
