  • U.S. may have gotten bogus Iraq info

    Rotflmao, now they are trying to suggest that Saddam himself planted
    bogus information to provide justification so that his country could
    be invaded and he deposed.

    And stupid sheople, no doubt, will believe this statement like they
    believed earlier lies about Iraqi WMD.

    The disdain of the powers to be for the sheople is fairly apparent.

    WASHINGTON, Aug. 28 (UPI) -- U.S. intelligence officials are investigating Thursday if Iraq planted misleading information about Iraq's weaponry. The effort by both U.S. and allied forces is a result of frustration at the inability to find any weapons of mass destruction in Iraq, the Washington Times reported. The goal, according to a senior U.S. intelligence official, "is to see if false information was put out there and got into legitimate channels and we were totally duped on it." He added, "We're reinterviewing all our sources of information on this. This is the entire intelligence community, not just the United States." Although senior CIA officials insist that defectors were only partly responsible for the intelligence that triggered the decision to invade Iraq in March, other intelligence officials now fear key portions of the prewar information may have been flawed. The issue raises fresh doubts as to whether illicit weapons will ever be found in Iraq.

    I made a comment like this some time ago over in alt.callahans;
    Saddam would want his neighbors afraid of him so he'd do his
    ****dest to bluff in a poker game like that.

    Of course, when he had to show his cards no one could believe
    that it was a bluff...

    It had nothing to do with the US. He wanted all of his neighboring
    countries (and probably Israel, too) worried about him so they
    wouldn't make a move.

    It wasn't Iraq vs. the USA, that wouldn't have entered into it.

    So the US intelligence agencies got duped because they WANTED to
    believe he had WMDs and the administration wanted it as an excuse.

    And suggestions that he'd smuggle 'em out to Afghanistan ignores
    the nature of a dictator: he would NOT give up something he
    needs to maintain his power.

    This kind of thing goes back to various mating strategies, you
    know, all the way back to antlers.

      Jack, it is bull**** and you know it very well.

      Chemical weapons are very ineffective on the battlefield.

      Saddam did not need to bluff his neighbors after 1991 as no one could
      credibly believe thathe could attack any country.
