They are in the area around Tikrit and Baghdad and a little east, west, south and north of it. “Oh yes, okay, all right! Now we can find it! Many Thanks! Let’s go boys! Then, on June 5, 2003, George W. Bush declared, “We recently discovered two mobile arms factories that could manufacture biological warfare agents. This man has been hiding funds for mass murder for decades. He knew the inspectors were looking for it. ”This Whopper lasted about a day. Then an official British investigation of the two “caravans” found in northern Iraq showed that “they are not mobile bioweapons laboratories, as Tony Blair and George Bush claimed, but produce hydrogen for filling artillery balloons, as the Iraqis have always pointed out.” So that was it. Tanks for filling balloons! Weapons for mass balloon production! It was more than a little embarrassing for the American high command. Lt. Gen. James Convay, the commander of the First Marine Expeditionary Force in Iraq, said, “It was a surprise to me then, as it is now, that we did not find any weapons, as you say, in some advanced deployment locations … Not because we had not looked for them, believe me … we are practically every -76-

And against the Iranians, after we gave him satellite photos of the troop movements so that he could locate the Iranian positions. We knew what he needed the photos for, and barely a year after the United Nations reported the gas strikes against the Iranians, we resumed full diplomatic relations with Saddam’s regime. Anyone who lifts the cheese whopper on his bun a little sees that Saddam did indeed possess weapons of mass destruction at a certain point in time – courtesy of the US and its allies. Here is a list from a 1994 US Senate investigation report. It contains the biological agents that American corporations Saddam Hussein were allowed to sell between 1985 and 1990 with the approval of the US government. We delivered to Saddam: • Bacillus Anthracis: Anthrax or anthrax is an often fatal infectious disease that is caused by the ingestion of spores. It starts with a sudden high fever, difficulty breathing, and chest pain and ends with septicemia (blood poisoning). If the septicemia is advanced, antibiotic treatment may also be ineffective, probably because the exotoxins remain in the body even after the bacteria are killed.
