"Saddam realized, this time, the Americans are coming," Sada told the Sun. "They handed over the weapons of mass destruction to the Syrians.”
The former Iraqi general said Special Republican Guard brigades loaded WMDs onto two converted Iraqi Airways planes.
He said he was told of the operation by two pilots that helped transport the materials. Sada says 56 flights were made, and were accompanied by a ground convoy of trucks carrying similar materials.
The Sun reports that the flights attracted scant international attention because they occurred at the same time that Iraq was sending relief to Syria for a dam collapse.
It is no surprise to me. We advertised for so long that we were coming, that he would have been a complete idiot to have kept them inside the country. I believe even James Spade (actor and comic) commented on this several years ago. His comments were to the effect of, [paraphrase] "If your mom tells you she's coming in your room in 6 days to search for drugs, and she tells you each day that she's coming in, you'd make sure your room was clean and cleared of any banned substances. It doesn't take a genius to figure that out."
Makes perfect sense.
And it is no wonder that the Bush-haters and leftist can't grasp the concept. They are too busy spouting their virtirolic epitaths "Bush Lied" et al, to let any thing that makes sense interfere with their psudo-religious mantras.
In any case, I doubt we'll be able to do anything about it now. Much the pity.
