Do not miss Glenn Greenwald’s post about the latest eruption of psychosis from America’s right. It turns out, according to an article by British hack Melanie Phillips in the Spectator, that IRAQ HAD WMD ALL ALONG! And this is being covered up by FORCES AT THE HIGHEST LEVELS!!1!
Read Greenwald’s post for the horrifying details, including how it’s been embraced by the biggest conservative blogs here. I’ll just mention my favorite part, which comes from something Philips posted on her website:
…at Russian insistence, Saddam agreed to sell or transfer his CW/BW stockpiles to other Arab states in the weeks and months before the war.
Yes…you can see how this would happen. When faced with attack by a far more powerful foe, countries always attempt to give away their weapons. This is a pattern that’s repeated itself throughout history.
And it’s not just the WMD! My sources have informed me that just before the war:
â€¢ At Brazil’s insistence, Saddam agreed to give away Iraq’s artillery
â€¢ At Malaysia’s insistence, Saddam agreed to give away Iraq’s rifles
â€¢ At Burkina Faso’s insistence, Saddam agreed to give away Iraq’s forks
But as always, this bombshell is being covered up by FORCES AT THE HIGHEST LEVELS!!1!
