New York Times Validates Iraqi DID Have WMD's .

Once again
New York Times manages to shoot itself, the Democratic party and it's credibility in the head. In their pathetic attempt to once again influence the American public in the upcoming elections, they have managed to validate the evidence that was presented to the UN about Saddams WMD program and the fact that he was approximately one year away from producing a nuke.

So,the NYT, after being called out in their deliberate lies in their bid to protect Kerry from his own mouth yesterday, by distorting his actual words with what they wished he would have said, they were in a rush to try to yet again discredit President Bush, and stumbling over themselves, they have managed to authenticate the evidence that the administration used in deciding to capture Saddam.

Among the dozens of documents in English were Iraqi reports written in the 1990s and in 2002 for United Nations inspectors in charge of making sure Iraq had abandoned its unconventional arms programs after the Persian Gulf war. Experts say that at the time, Mr. Hussein’s scientists were on the verge of building an atom bomb, as little as a year away.

European diplomats said this week that some of those nuclear documents on the Web site were identical to the ones presented to the United Nations Security Council in late 2002, as America got ready to invade Iraq. But unlike those on the Web site, the papers given to the Security Council had been extensively edited, to remove sensitive information on unconventional arms.

WOW, shocking isn't it? After all the protestations from the Democratic party and all the indignation from the left side of the aisle about the President having lied to the people to invade Iraq..... The President was right.

Captain Ed over at Captain's Quarters has been carefully monitoring the information that has been posted on “Operation Iraqi Freedom Document Portal,” a website set up to make information gathered in Iraq, public.

A memo that Capatin Ed posted in July:

Office of the Presidency Intelligence Service M5/3/9/2

The Honorable Mr. General Director Manager M5
Subject: Information

Our Afghani source numbered 11002 had provided us with the information on the denotation paper number -1- )
The Afghani Consul Ahmad Dahstani (the information on the denotation paper number (2)) had mentioned in front of him with the followings:

1. Osama Bin Laden and the Taliban Group in Afghanistan were in touch with the Iraqis and that group of the Talibans and Osama Bin Laden had visited Iraq.
2. The United States of America has evidence that the Iraqi government and Osama Bin Laden's group expressed cooperation among themselves in bombing targets in American.
3. In case Osama Bin Laden and the Taliban were proven to have been involved in carrying out these terrorist operations, it could be possible that the United Stated will attack both Iraq and Afghanistan.
4. The Afghani consul heard about the connection between the Iraqis and the Osama Bin Laden group during his stay in Iran.
5. Upon what has been presented we suggest writing to the Intention Committee with the above information.

So, what we have, courtesy of the New York Times, is authentication that Iraq was one year away from producing a nuke, and from Captain Ed, memo's proving that Saddam did indeed have relations with Bin Laden and the possibility that Saddam played a part in 9/11.

Even better yet, the papers claim that the information provided on the website would "help" Iran in developing a nuke, they apparently either neglect or just refuse to reference the fact that Clinton GAVE Iran the trigger. This just gets better and better.

Now, for those of us that have actually looked into Iraq's capabilities in the past, we always knew about his chemical/biological/nuclear programs, something else that the left wingers truly hate to admit, because by acknowledging the truth, they would have to admit that we had NO OPTION but to take Saddam out of the equation.

As if we needed more, Gateway Pundit and Pajamas Media have screen shots of pictures and memos showing ties with al-Qaeda and Saddam.

2002 Iraqi Intelligence Correspondence concerning the presence of al-Qaida Members in Iraq. Correspondence between IRS members on a suspicion, later confirmed, of the presence of an Al-Qaeda terrorist group. Moreover, it includes photos and names.

What the Democratic party has tried so hard to conceal is the fact that the reason we went into Iraq was valid and justified as the memo's, pictures and information has shown.

The intelligence was not as flawed as we have been led to believe and it was presented before we invaded Iraq and toppled Saddam. Who would have thunk it?

The deeper ramifications to me is the fact that knowing this information, and knowing that the Republicans and the administration could not produce it for reasons of national security, the Democratic party ran with their lies about the US not having a reason to enter Iraq. They counted on the fact that they could take advantage of the American people and mislead us for political gain, all the time hoping that the Republicans hands were tied behind their back and could not fight back. How disgusting is that?

The New York times in its bid to discredit the administration, has managed to validate it.

President Bush was right and the New York Times has proven it. God that has to hurt.

The Anchoress has a hilarious, must see, hypothetical conversation that the NYT is having.

More from Captain's Quarters Archives, and please note where it states to give CNN priority with the information.

Pages 3-5 contain a Secret memo signed on behalf of the Head of 5th Directorate (Translator Comment (TC): no name indicated) and sent from the Iraqi Intelligence Service (IIS) to the 1st Department of the 4th Directorate regarding information about mass graves in the Southern Area of Iraq, and the rituals and ceremonies to be made for the dead people. The memo was dated 07 February 2001, and contained the following notes:

• The IIS has no information about the mass graves in the Southern Area.
• Graves have to be tested for the presence of nuclear radiation.
• Were they buried alive or did they die of suffocation?
• Were they military or civilian?
• Was there any identification of their names?
• Place signs and accurate details for the mass graves to be reached easily.
• Use trusted news agencies to leak rumors and information that there is a misunderstanding and signs from some Coalition Forces members regarding the presence of the mass graves in Southern Iraq.
• Request assistance from some friendly countries that possess the technological capabilities to search for these graves.
• Give CNN the priority to cover this incident to make a bigger effect on the international community.
• Leak rumors to trusted media sources that the atrocities and mass graves found in the Southern Area were committed by the Coalition Forces. This is in order to make these actions noticeable as monstrous and inhuman to the whole world.
• After that, the remains are to be taken out of the graves; military procedures and arrangements will be made to pay the deceased their last respect. Also the building of memorial statues for the dead in every governorate.
There is a ton more at Captain's Quarters because he has relentlessly kept up with these archives and memos. Well worth your time to go through his archives on this subject.

Interesting to me is the desire to give CNN priority. I have often pointed out that the terrorist organizations trust CNN because CNN is always more than willing to spread their propaganda for them in the guise of actual news, as with the footage of our soldier being shot on tape not so long ago.

One last tidbit, just as food for thought. The left is spinning this as damaging information that our congress approved to go onto the internet..... if this is true, if somehow this could have helped Iran build the bomb, (We will ignore for a second that Clinton GAVE Iran the plans already) then they also have to admit that in the hands of Saddam, it was reason enough to take him from power and be in Iraq. So, either it was damaging enough to make Saddam a threat or it wasn't? What is it gonna be lefties? You cannot have your "yellowcake" and eat it too.

Right Truth has a great take on this.
