DID THE U.S. GO INTO IRAQ ON FALSE PRETENSES FOR WMD THAT DID NOT EXIST?
FOR IF IT HAD, THE NEW ADMINISTRATON CAME INTO POWER BASED ON THAT "NARRATIVE."
IT IS THE NARRATIVE THAT STATES THAT THE U.S. HAD SPENT ITS TREASURE AND LIVES FOR A DISHONEST CAUSE...FOR WMD'S THAT WE DID NOT KNOW ABOUT AND DID NOT EXIST IN IRAQ.
IF THE UNITED STATES ENTERED THE WAR HONESTLY HOWEVER AFTER FOURTEEN MONTHS OF NEGOTIATIONS AT THE UN - WHAT THE OPPOSITION CALLED "A RUSH TO WAR" - THAN THE NEW ADMINISTRATION CAME INTO POWER IN 2006 AND 2008 BASED ON A SERIES OF LIES THAT HAD UNJUSTLY INDICTED THE OUTGOING ADMINISTRATION.
IF THE NEW ADMINISTRATION CAME INTO POWER BASED ON A SERIES OF LIES THAT MISLED THE AMERICAN PEOPLE - THEY ARE AN ILLEGITIMATE POLITICAL FORCE FROM THE GET-GO.
THE FOREGOING EXPLORES THE FUNDAMENTAL ISSUE: WAS THERE URANIUM PRECURSOR WMD IN IRAQ THAT WE HAD FOUND AFTER THE INVASION?
Tyranny is a scandal—not a scandal in the sense of Watergate, or of Eliot Spitzer’s socks—but in the sense of being a gigantic lie hiding in plain sight, a lie that seeks to violently compel others to submit to its claims or else participate in them. As with any lie, it is sustained only to the extent that it is believed. And, as with any lie, it is undone the moment one person—whether that’s Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn oror Václav Havel or Liu Xiaobo or Ayaan Hirsi Ali—stands up and says: It is not so!
- Brett Stevens, Commentary Magazine July 2012
The prevailing media narrative spin is that WMD yellowcake in Iraq was never found. Scott Ritter, Joe Wilson andtold the truth about the non-existent WMD, and therefore, the relatively unknown story of the Iraqi WMD having been shipped to Canada in 2008 does not change things at all.
In other words, the two-pronged media narrative says that there was no WMD in the first place because it didn't exist; and in the second place there was WMD because it existed, but we knew about it before the invasion because it was always there - going back to the first Gulf War.
The problem with having it both ways is the fact that we didn't know it was there in the first place and in the second place "we" didn't know where it was hidden.
NOT UNTIL WE HAD FOUND IT IN 2003 - AFTER THE INVASION!
THE PLAME GAME
The narrative much of the world believes states that Joe Wilson, Valerie Plame, and former UN inspector Scott Ritter told the truth before the Senate Subcommittee on Intelligence when they had testified about the Iraqi WMD.
Valerie Plame denied having had anything to do with her husband, Joe Wilson's appointment by the CIA for the investigation he conducted in Niger to ascertain if Saddam had tried to obtain yellowcake (uranium precursor) in Africa. Not until Plame was confronted with evidence contrary did she retract her assertion. Plame's story was "outed," as in contrast to Plame having been outed as a "CIA Secret Agent" - which never happened because she never was a CIA secret OR, undercover agent.
A congressman held up Plame's own hand-written memo to her CIA superiors in which she aggressively recommended Wilson, her husband, for the job. Plame Lied, People Died.
Plame's job was even more secret that we had thought however as she took her automobile from her home to CIA HQ in Langley, VA., every morning - and back home every day after work. Thousands of trips to the same parking spot at Langley and then back to her home into the same garage. All secret of course, except to those who might have trailed cars coming in and out of the Langley parking lots. Meanwhile, the Wilson's lived a dog's life. Joe introduced his wife at D.C. parties for years before the "outing" as "My wife Val, the CIA agent." These announcements, frequently made, made Plame's activities even more "secret." Right.
In his report to the CIA after returning form Niger, Wilson wrote that there were indications that Saddam looked to obtain the aforementioned yellowcake uranium precursor in Africa. Shortly afterward he retracted his own written statements in his New York Times editorial where he forthrightly wrote that he saw no evidence to back President Bush's 16 word assertion at the State of the Union Message:
"The British government has learned thatrecently sought significant quantities of uranium from Africa."
Note the wording: Bush did not say our government learned, but that the Brits have. Our government, rightly or wrongly, followed the Brit intel, the Russian intel, the Saudi intel, the Egyptian intel, the Israeli intel, and our own NIAs. (Egypt is close to Niger by the way) and all the reports from various agencies about this matter became a puzzle about the uranium's source and whereabouts of which the pieces were about to be put together. Except for the missing link, and that is what this story is about.
Based on the specious allegations against the Bush Administratrion, the international media and the left of the political spectrum (which includes America's Democratic Party and its associates) went on a decade long assault using the commonality that "Bush Lied," and "Bush led the United States into an unjust war based on sexed-up intelligence," that "America went into the Wrong War in the Wrong Place at the Wrong Time."
If the above narrative were true, it would have been a fatal indictment of America, its people, its mission and its ideals.
After Joe Wilson left the Senate Intel Committee however, the senate report concluded Wilson's testimony by ending the report with the words: "Wilson was less than thruthful."
Both Plame and Wilson were subsequently outed asoperatives working for the Kerry Campaign.
(Kerry ran for president againstand lost.) The Plame Game as it turned out was a leftwing assault to bring the Bush Administration to its knees and instal John Kerry as America's president, based on Kerry's imaginary heroic deployment to Cambodia and his imaginary higher grades than Bush had received at Yale.
Unfortunately as it was revealed later, Kerry had a great imagination: he never stepped a foot on Cambodian soil, and instead of saving lives while serving on Swift Boats in Vietnam, Kerry risked lives and left his men behind while running for cover. In Vietnam he received a small self-inflicted wound children might get playing ball at the schoolyard - a scrape that that required no stitches - and our "hero" was discharged as a result. Adding to the litany of the claims against Bush not being the brightest bulb on the block, Kerry received LOWER marks at Yale than George W. Bush. If Bush were a C, Kerry a D.
From the podium John Kerry saluted the attendees at the Democratic Convention, saying "I'm Reporting for Duty!"
True, he did report for duty.
Just not at the White House.
All these facts jelled together giving Bush another term in office, a landslide in fact, where he was able to negotiate the American withdrawal timetable from Iraq BEFORE Obama stepped into the Oval Office.
In other words, Obama did not make the decision to draw down American forces in Iraq. Bush had. Bush ended the Iraq War begun by, his predecessor, who had put the political, logistical and physical infrastructure in place years before he left office. All the details for these facts of history are enumerated below with annotated references.
"BUSH LIED to take this nation into an unjustified war in the wrong place at the wrong time and for the wrong reasons." was The MEDIA NARRATIVE.
This story (with the links below) I had recounted many times and the DoD memo referenced below is merely additional evidence recently dug up by this writer. The leftwingers who knew the story in detail (at least to some degree) rejected the inconvenient facts of the shipment of uranium out of hand, and chose to accept hook, line and sinker the NY Times', MSNBC's and other media outlet's SPIN on it -- after the fact of the WMD's discovery.
Fortunately for them, the Bush Administration admitted to making intel errors in 2006-7, with the resignation of top level officials as a "penalty," and didn't feel it a necessity to correct the record about the WMD's new status in the face of the leftist's indigenous onslaught.
Naturally they couldn't correct the record because the WMD's existence and status was TOP SECRET until July 2008!
Regardless, the history books will be written and the history as facts on the ground will prove the liberal-left narrative to have been what many had suspected all along: Myths, disingenuous story-telling and self-serving lies.
Surprised leftwingers, once they had caught their breaths from the bad news, kept insisting that "we knew about the WMD all along" and just kept it "secret" all that time for really, no reason.
Nice try. Well, "we," didn't know about it - THEY, didn't know about it. And the DoD Memo #50430 bursts their lies in their entirety. The left-liberal narrative was a lie from the get-go.
The Left didn't know about the whereabouts of the WMD; Saddam didn't reveal its whereabouts to UN inspectors who also didn't know about where it was stored or if it existed at all - and that is why we had invaded in the first place: to find what we didn't know about but suspected the existence of on circumstantial evidence.
This evidence was backed by global intel agencies to satisfy an intel puzzle that was put together before - and AFTER - the invasion.
DoD MEMO #50430 is the final piece in the puzzle that you will see with your own eyes soon. That is the memo the Left-Liberals won't be able to deny the existence of.
Clearly we didn't DISCOVER the yellowcake before we had invaded. Clearly the media didn't report on its existence either BEFORE or at the time of the invasion.
Or afterward...until it was transfered in July 2008 in a SECRET OPERATION to Canada's uranium refiner CAMECO.
All 550 METRIC TONS of it - enough, according to The American Thinker, to build 50 -150 nuclear explosive devices!
John Kerry didn't know about it because we had discovered it AFTER the invasion "when we went into Tuwaitha," after which it came under the control of the IAEA, the International Atomic Energy Agency supervised by the US Military. The same military that REMOVED it in a SECRET OPERATION with the Iraqi government's cooperation.
These facts put the media and liberal/left/Democratic spin and LIE on this story to REST - leaving the United States free of the indictment by the Left; and at the same, indicting the Left by exposing who they are.
Alike ALL progressives, they live for the FUTURE 100 years in the past - except for the facts that they don't like, which get buried in the back pages of their media (CYA, right?) if the facts get published at all.
The history books will make the corrections. You saw it here first, an AllVoices Investigative Report that is actually worth millions of dollars.
The LEFT-liberals had LIED to the American People and keep lying all the time, every time. Their media associates who knew better lied for almost a decade and had NEVER corrected their lies even as the evidence submitted here came across their editor's desks. I would have liked to be more "diplomatic" about my calling their errors, "misstatements,' disinformation campaign, or propaganda; something LESS than lies because I'm really a nice guy at least one day a week (usually Thursdays), and besides, it makes the touchy-feely libtards feel better about themselves even if they have absolutely no credibility or integrity left. I speak here of the Far Left, the New Left, the Old Left, and the left-over Left.
Feeling good about themselves takes the place of courage, virtue, common sense and telling the truth and/or taking responsibility for their lying. After all, they still believe one truth:
MARX my words!
But that's how the real world works friends. There ARE consequences for their actions however, for they were united and committed to lying to The American People for more than a decade to cause the American People to become disunited. I take that back. For a century. For a century their ideas were discredited by the Soviets, the Eastern Block, Pol Pot's Cambodia, Mao's China, Castro's Cuba, Chavez' Venezuela, Saddam's Iraq and many more.
So here friends you see the historical correction that discredits the Left in the modern world, the EVIDENCE, and the truth from the horse's mouth.
And that horse is not called George W. Bush!

So much for the media SPIN of Obama "deciding" to pull US troops out!
Bush the Decider made The Decision and Decided.
AS IT TURNS OUT, BUSH'S WAR HAPPENED TO BE CLINTON'S WAR! The War Clinton Began and Bush Ended.
The Iraq Liberation Act of October 1998 passed by a unanimous SENATE vote while George W. Bush was fixing fences at his ranch in Texas and serving as Texas' most popular governor.
CHAPTER III of the Act passed into America Law calls for REGIME CHANGE and the IMPOSITION OF DEMOCRATIC REFORM in Iraq.
SEC. III CONCLUSION: Sense of the Congress Regarding US Policy toward Iraq
"It should be the policy of the United States to support efforts to remove the regime headed by Saddam Hussein from power in Iraq and to promote the emergence of a democratic government to replace that regime."
CLINTON speaks to the Nation on TV - THIS IS "SADDAM'S LAST CHANCE!" said the president:
Scroll down for the text of the speech...
CLINTON signs the Iraq Liberation Act of October 1998 (in 1998, not 2003!):
The reader can see for himself that documented history proved that just about everything you've read in the US media, and abroad too, about how the United States had entered a decade-long war on false pretenses was the exact opposite of their "narratives." Narratives as in myths, fairy tales, tall stories, fibs, outright lies, ghostbusting and UFO sightings.
In other words, everything was so unless it wasn't.
And it wasn't so!
You now know that the leftwing of the political divide LIE because of hate and their need to re-allocate the nation's national security and defense resources toward their own ends, whatever those ends may be. But then they're always moving the goalposts FORWARD so we can never catch up to the lies, and it is so not because they are Patriotic Americans.
Mostly because they're so Progressive they are actually moving BACKWARD, living in the ideas of the 19th Century, as one great pundit, Sultan Knish, so astutely observed here:
No matter how many times they try to convince you the left are patriotic, just hold this story up, in the mirrors of which they can see the face of the tyranny of their HOPE.
Tyranny is a scandal—not a scandal in the sense of Watergate, or of Eliot Spitzer’s socks—but in the sense of being a gigantic lie hiding in plain sight, a lie that seeks to violently compel others to submit to its claims or else participate in them. As with any lie, it is sustained only to the extent that it is believed. And, as with any lie, it is undone the moment one person—whether that’s Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn or Natan Sharansky or Václav Havel or Liu Xiaobo or Ayaan Hirsi Ali—stands up and says: It is not so!

The Congress installed in 2006 and the presidency in 2008 are illegitimate from the get-go, as their power arose from an GIANT onion of lies, the skins of which have just been unpeeled.
