LEFTIST MYTH BUSTED: Saddam moved WMDs to Syria
For political reasons, the Liberal media covered up this eyewitness account of Saddam Hussein moving chemical weapons.
During the American Policy Roundtable Making a Difference Banquet, held on September 21, 2007, the panel questioned General George Sada.
Sada was an eyewitness to the dictatorship of Iraq’s Saddam Hussein, thus the panel asked about WMDs, Syria, and Russia.
This interview vindicates the Bush 43 administration. Further, Sada explains how Syria got its hands on chemical weapons that we likely used in Assad’s recent attacks on his own citizens.
Sada recalled that Saddam planned to carry out a chemical attack against Israel in two waves – one coming through Jordan, and the other through Syria.
After a long discussion, Hussein decided against that attack, as he decided instead to hide the WMDs, then later transfer them to Syria.
Bombshell No. 1: Saddam Hussein hid Weapons of Mass Destruction (WMDs) from 1991 until 2002.
Interviewer No. 1 – “What did Saddam do with the weapons? Where did he hide them?”
Sada – “These weapons were hidden from 1991 to year 2002. [Saddam] organized a, he created an organization only to hide the weapons.”
Bombshell No. 2 – In early June 2002, a dam on the Orontes River in Syria burst, causing a flood which killed 22 and displaced 4,000. Saddam Hussein used that natural disaster as an excuse to move his WMDs.
Sada – “But in summer of 2002, a natural disaster happened in Syria, in the Zeyzoun area. A lot of floods were in that area. So Syria asked for humanitarian aid from the Arab countries. So that was the time when Saddam start thinking his evil way.”
“He announced to the world that he’s going to aid Syria with humanitarian aid, by air and by ground. But that was not true. The truth is, he converted two airplanes we had, jumbo 747 and 727. And he converted them to cargo airplanes. And the [WMDs] were transported from Bagdad (Iraq) to Damascus (Syria).”
“These two airplanes were permitted as civilian, regular passenger airplanes, for humanitarian purposes – old people, sick people – to go out of the country. But he used these airplane like this [to transport WMDs]. And these airplanes made 56 [trips] from Baghdad to Damascus, transporting the weapons, by a special secret way, by the Republican Guard.”
Bombshell No. 3 – RUSSIA helped Saddam transport WMDs out of Iraq.
Sada – “And another 100 semi-trucks – 50×50 – on the ground by help of Russians, were also taking the weapons to the west part of the city, to a city they call Derzole. And from Derzole to Syria.”
Bombshell No. 4 – The Media knew and refused to report the weapons transfer because of politics.
Interviewer No. 2 – “General, you told this story in England, I remember.”
Sada – “Yes.”
Interviewer No. 2 – “But the British newspapers wouldn’t print it.
Sada – “I told them many other stories, really, but they didn’t print it. And the lady which was making the interview said, ‘I believe you 100% general. But we will not print this in our newspaper.’ I said, ‘Why?’ She said, Because we have taken a position against the Prime Minister Blair about that. If we will tell all this, that means he was right.’
“I said, No matter that the story is true, you still won’t print it? She said, ‘No.’ And they didn’t, and that was it.”
Bombshell No. 5 – The American government knew as well.
Interviewer No. 3 – “Have you told the story to our federal government?
Sada – “I have told everybody.”
Interviewer No 3 – “The White House, what’s been their response?
Sada – “They know. They know all the story, and they say, ‘The general is right.’ The only thing is, if you call the Congress now, to Pete Hoekstra [ranking member of House Intel Committee at the time]. He will tell you, Yeah, the general is right. The only thing now is, how to verify them [the WMDs].
Sada – “They should go to Syria and get them.”
Let’s see if the media makes mention of Bush being right about WMDs. Or perhaps they will admit to being complicit in the murder of Syrian citizens?
