Weapons of Mass Destruction: Who Said What When

by CounterPunch Wire Friday, May. 30, 2003 at 5:38 PM

Simply stated, there is no doubt that Saddam Hussein now has weapons of mass destruction. Dick Cheney August 26, 2002 Right next to Oil Wells eh Dickie?

May 29, 2003


Weapons of Mass Destruction:
Who Said What When

CounterPunch Wire

Simply stated, there is no doubt that Saddam Hussein now has weapons of mass destruction.

Dick Cheney August 26, 2002

Right now, Iraq is expanding and improving facilities that were used for the production of biological weapons.

George W. Bush September 12, 2002

If he declares he has none, then we will know that Saddam Hussein is once again misleading the world.

Ari Fleischer December 2, 2002

We know for a fact that there are weapons there.

Ari Fleischer January 9, 2003

Our intelligence officials estimate that Saddam Hussein had the materials to produce as much as 500 tons of sarin, mustard and VX nerve agent.

George W. Bush January 28, 2003

We know that Saddam Hussein is determined to keep his weapons of mass destruction, is determined to make more.

Colin Powell February 5, 2003

We have sources that tell us that Saddam Hussein recently authorized Iraqi field commanders to use chemical weapons -- the very weapons the dictator tells us he does not have.

George Bush February 8, 2003

So has the strategic decision been made to disarm Iraq of its weapons of mass destruction by the leadership in Baghdad? I think our judgment has to be clearly not.

Colin Powell March 8, 2003

Intelligence gathered by this and other governments leaves no doubt that the Iraq regime continues to possess and conceal some of the most lethal weapons ever devised.

George Bush March 17, 2003

Well, there is no question that we have evidence and information that Iraq has weapons of mass destruction, biological and chemical particularly . . . all this will be made clear in the course of the operation, for whatever duration it takes.

Ari Fleisher March 21, 2003

There is no doubt that the regime of Saddam Hussein possesses weapons of mass destruction. As this operation continues, those weapons will be identified, found, along with the people who have produced them and who guard them.

Gen. Tommy Franks March 22, 2003

I have no doubt we're going to find big stores of weapons of mass destruction.

Kenneth Adelman, Defense Policy Board , March 23, 2003

One of our top objectives is to find and destroy the WMD. There are a number of sites.

Pentagon Spokeswoman Victoria Clark March 22, 2003

We know where they are. They are in the area around Tikrit and Baghdad.

Donald Rumsfeld March 30, 2003

Obviously the administration intends to publicize all the weapons of mass destruction U.S. forces find -- and there will be plenty.

Neocon scholar Robert Kagan April 9, 2003

I think you have always heard, and you continue to hear from officials, a measure of high confidence that, indeed, the weapons of mass destruction will be found.

Ari Fleischer April 10, 2003

We are learning more as we interrogate or have discussions with Iraqi scientists and people within the Iraqi structure, that perhaps he destroyed some, perhaps he dispersed some. And so we will find them.

George Bush April 24, 2003

There are people who in large measure have information that we need . . . so that we can track down the weapons of mass destruction in that country. Donald Rumsfeld April 25, 2003

We'll find them. It'll be a matter of time to do so.

George Bush May 3, 2003

I am confident that we will find evidence that makes it clear he had weapons of mass destruction.

Colin Powell May 4, 2003

I never believed that we'd just tumble over weapons of mass destruction in that country.

Donald Rumsfeld May 4, 2003

I'm not surprised if we begin to uncover the weapons program of Saddam Hussein -- because he had a weapons program.

George W. Bush May 6, 2003

U.S. officials never expected that "we were going to open garages and find" weapons of mass destruction.

Condoleeza Rice May 12, 2003

I just don't know whether it was all destroyed years ago -- I mean, there's no question that there were chemical weapons years ago -- whether they were destroyed right before the war, (or) whether they're still hidden.

Maj. Gen. David Petraeus,
Commander 101st Airborne May 13, 2003

Before the war, there's no doubt in my mind that Saddam Hussein had weapons of mass destruction, biological and chemical. I expected them to be found. I still expect them to be found.

Gen. Michael Hagee,
Commandant of the Marine Corps May 21, 2003

Given time, given the number of prisoners now that we're interrogating, I'm confident that we're going to find weapons of mass destruction.

Gen. Richard Myers,
Chairman Joint Chiefs of Staff May 26, 2003

They may have had time to destroy them, and I don't know the answer.

Donald Rumsfeld May 27, 2003

For bureaucratic reasons, we settled on one issue, weapons of mass destruction (as justification for invading Iraq) because it was the one reason everyone could agree on.

Paul Wolfowitz May 28, 2003

It's the Oil Stupid!

"For bureaucratic reasons, we settled on one issue, weapons of mass destruction (as justification for invading Iraq) because it was the one reason everyone could agree on."

Paul Wolfowitz May 28, 2003


And so the Worm turns. As I have been saying all along it was not about the fictional Weapons of Mass Destruction ® (2001 The White House).

You will not see any of the Shills like davemoron, Prigg, Psymple Symon (davemoron), or any of the various apologists for Rape, Murder, and Theft say one fucking word about this. The Bush Junta began lying on day one and has never stopped lying.

The mainstream Presstitutes began lying on day one, have been the mouthpieces for a murderous regime and continue to so be to this day.

Three kinds of lies (with apologies to Mark Twain): Lies, Damned Lies and Bush.

No WMD?

by daveman Saturday, May. 31, 2003 at 4:31 PM

Oh, sorry, Mr.Hussein.

You can have your country back, then. Sorry about the statue and all.

Is that what you want, Dijonaise? Give it back to him?

No Davie...

by Diogenes Saturday, May. 31, 2003 at 8:01 PM

...I want you personally to go gather up the body parts of the Men, Women, and Children who were murdered by your Fuhrer and then reattach them.

Failing that how can you justify the loss of innocent life in a War sold with lies and with an ultimate rationale that could not be told to the people doing the dying. Explain it to the parents of the kids whose life's blood oozed out into the desert sands.

Well

by Scottie Saturday, May. 31, 2003 at 8:59 PM

That is easy to answer -
If more people would have died under sadam then how could you have justified NOT waging the war?
also note total deaths is a crude mesurement - we should factor in individual freedom and long term standard of living etc as well as safety of neighbours

That Dog Won't Hunt Scottie

by Diogenes Sunday, Jun. 01, 2003 at 5:51 AM

If our rationale really was to engage in a War of "Operation Iraqi Liberation" (OIL for short) then there are other regimes just as heinous - take Indonesia for example, Saudi Arabia (Death for Proselytizing Christianity), Ruwanda, et. al.,.... Explain how it justifies sending the American Military, which is there to defend the nation against foreign agression, to effect "Regime Change" (a nice euphemism for overthrowing a government) and occupy the Oil Fields. I would laugh but too much blood has been spilled. No, Saddam was a Bastard, but then we have our own Bastards don't we?

Okay, Dio

by daveman Sunday, Jun. 01, 2003 at 10:00 AM

I'll reassemble the people we killed if you can reassemble the people Saddam would have kept running through the plastic shredder.

Deal?
