As I've stated before, I'll probably go to my grave knowing that Iraq had the WMDs we invaded them to get rid of... We just showed up too late. Well, my belief based on various sources (not the least this 2006 NY Sun article http://www.nysun.com/foreign/iraqs-wmd-secreted-in-syria-sada-says/26514/), may very well have proven more solid.
Intelligence has just confirmed that the Bashar Assad regime has used sarin gas on its own people, not once, but TWICE already: http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2013/04/25/hagel-says-evidence-chemical-weapons-were-used-in-syria/ How much do you want to bet its from Iraq?! If not all of it, some of it. Syria was the mouse hole by which many Former Regime Elements (FRE) of Saddam's Ba'ath Party escaped prior to the US invasion in 2003 (Assad's party is the Ba'ath Party of Syria if I recall, funny how that works...). But hey, we are just full of shit right?!
More bodies fill mass graves while the diplomats in the 'international community' talk of strong actions against the regime. If you were serious, bombs should have been falling there MONTHS ago instead of our wasting time and resources propping up the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt and Libya you morons.
One can only hope Israel picks up our slack and slags what they can of these supplies.
Meanwhile, the DNI (I pronounce it DeeNye as in 'deny') has confirmed that once again during the Obama Administration that the intelligence community connected all the dots, and failed to stop a terrorist from reaching their target and instigating mayhem (and in this case) destruction: http://freebeacon.com/top-intel-official-the-dots-were-connected/
“The rules were abided by, as best as I can tell at this point,” Clapper is quoted as saying. “The dots were connected.”
Clapper’s statement is reminiscent of remarks by Secretary of Homeland Security Janet Napolitano following the attempted Christmas Day bombing of Detroit-bound flight by the so-called Underwear Bomber Umar Farouk Abdul Mutallab. Napolitano went on national television and claimed “the system worked” despite repeated warnings about Abdulmutallab, including an attempt by his own family to alert the US government about the threat he posed.
No shit. Here they were spending a lot of resources looking at folks like myself (http://trendnemesis.blogspot.com/2009/04/15apr09-stab-in-back.html)... Well, I guess maybe they should quit worrying about returning GWOT Veterans who vote Pro-Life and Pro-Gun and remember that the real enemies are coming from overseas with a radical view of Islam (well, actually its becoming a 'normal' view of Islam with the radicals believing in the peaceful coexistence with other religions, if the norm is the view of ones who control Mecca).
Oh, and all the while they are cutting the funding to the FAA and blaming the flight delays on Republicans for not compromising on taxation (when the REAL problem is spending on the part of BOTH parties), DHS continues to stockpile ammo that is already scarce.
Yup, they can buy more than two years worth of ammo, but you can't go to the store and buy more than a couple boxes as the demand exceeds supply. Something tells me DHS is enjoying the opportunity, even if they deny it. I bet you very soon that it will be more leverage to impose more Federal standards on State and local police and Sheriff agencies as they are also having trouble acquiring ammunition for their officers and deputies. DHS can deny it now... But when it happens it won't come as any surprise...
Just like how the Boston Marathon Bombing was committed by Islamic Radicals... Any GWOT vet could have told you that after a mere 10 minutes of seeing the location of the bombs in relation to each other. How many times did we clean up after that (or worse, get hit by that) in Iraq and Afghanistan? Yet there were brainless talking heads comparing it to domestic attacks and saying 'it fits those evil white guy anti-abortion gun rights anti-tax terrorists!' Yup, sure fit the mold of the criminals who targeted Federal buildings, abortion clinics, and individual doctors... Yup sure does fit the pattern doesn't it (with the only exception being the 1996 Atlanta Olympic Park bombing in which the guy used PIPE bombs... yet someone said pressure cookers were a 'favorite' of American "right wing extremists").
So, here are some more articles to make your head explode about how obvious these guys were and how the DHS that is more concerned about me missed the ones who actually want to kill us:
